ESPN released its preseason All American teams on Thursday and it included two Clemson Tigers.
Bryan Bresee and Justyn Ross were both named by the self proclaimed Worldwide Leader in Sports.
WR Justyn Ross
“Selecting Ross as one of the two receivers may be a bit of a gamble given his spine condition/surgery that caused him to miss last season,” ESPN’s Chris Low said. “But he’s been cleared medically to play in 2021, and if he is indeed healthy, there’s not a tougher matchup in college football than the 6-4, 205-pound Ross. He caught 17 touchdown passes and averaged 16.7 yards per catch in his first two seasons and is a prime target in the red zone.”
DT Bryan Bresee
“Clemson just keeps churning out elite defensive linemen, and the 6-5, 300-pound Bresee has only scratched the surface of how good he can be,” Low said. As a true freshman, he tied for the team lead with 11 quarterback pressures and also had four sacks, validating his rating as ESPN’s No. 1 defensive tackle prospect in the 2020 class. With a ton of talent around him, Bresee will be a force in the middle of the Tigers’ defensive line.”
Clemson and Notre Dame have released depth charts ahead of this weekend’s matchup at Death Valley.
For the second time this season, Clemson will be an underdog at home.
Despite Clemson’s astonishing loss to Miami, the Tigers will head to Raleigh next week favored over NC State.
