The 2021 football season is quickly approaching, and now it is time to look at the 10 players on offense who the Tigers will look to if they want to make it back to the College Football Playoff this season.

Today, we continue with No. 1 on our list of players for the Tigers:

No. 1: Justyn Ross:

Clemson’s most impactful returning receiver may be one who didn’t see the field in 2020, as 2021 could mark the return of fourth-year receiver Justyn Ross (Phenix City, Ala.), who missed all of last season after surgery following the diagnosis of a congenital fusion in his spine. 

While still attempting to hit medical checkpoints, Ross is tentatively expected to participate in spring ball in a non-contact capacity with an eye toward potential full participation in fall camp, a plan that was successful in current NFL receiver and former Clemson star Mike Williams’ return from a neck injury in 2016 en route to becoming the No. 7 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
