I'm also surprised. But it's still a Johnny-come-lately.

They've never really signed an elite class. Although they've had a couple of small classes that had outstanding average star rankings. (Maybe they could've taken on more four stars if they had room, but I don't know enough about the roster.) So you'd think that they'd be able to follow that up. There seems to be enough going for the school that it's about time they sign an elite class.


They have signed plenty of elite DL's

Some might contend that the super DL that they have is the key to their success.


And elite QBs *

The early signing day also probably played a factor.

Most recruits signed in December before Clemson’s rampage through the CFP field.

It should’ve had the opposite effect for ND, though (although it can be argued the full impact of our playoff run won’t be seen until next year’s recruiting class).
