Jalen Williams

Why be excited: An under-the-radar prospect because of his height, Williams committed to Clemson with a grayshirt offer over immediate scholarship offers from Air Force, Appalachian State and Furman. He's considered to be a solid tackler with good instincts, and was offered by Brent Venables after watching him work out at camp last summer.

You may not know: Williams earned MVP honors at the South Carolina North-South All-Star Game after making six tackles and recovering a fumble for a touchdown.

How he fits into the depth chart: Williams is likely to redshirt, and then work his way into the mix as a reserve linebacker and special teams player.
