    Tigers added another 4* OL to the 2020 class. Building another NC team.

    This is a great sign for Clemson. IMHO, the OL has been the weakness of this team for almost all of the Dabo Swinney era. And it's really the LAST piece of the puzzle for Clemson to be at the very top of College Football. This year's OL (2018) was a pretty experienced group coming into the season and really improved as the season progressed. This group was somewhere between good and elite in pass protection and between mediocre and good in run blocking. This absolutely made the difference in the National Championship Game. They completely stonewalled the Bama pass rush (but to be fair, they were not effective in run blocking for most of the game). This expected haul of 4 4-stars and a 3 star will set Clemson up with viable top level OL for the immediate future.
