Clemson Tigers are Taking 'WWE Tag Team' Approach to Linebacker Rotation

Since Clemson's defensive line is going to be the Avengers, maybe the Tigers' linebackers should go by Midnight Express or Road Warriors.

Clemson has been very selective when handing out offers to running backs in this class. Cobb was just the fourth player at the position to be offered, and only after the Tigers were out of the running for early targets Richard Young, Justice Haynes and Cedric Baxter Jr.

Now the staff will once again have to expand the board and move on to the next target. Possibilities include 2023 RB Chris Johnson, out of Houston, and 2023 RB Parker Jenkins, out of Georgia, as the Tigers are looking to sign one running back in this recruiting cycle.

The Tigers, who went 10-3 in 2021 and finished 14th in the final Associated Press Poll, are the fourth team on FanDuel Sportsbook's list to win it all in 2022.
