Clemson Adding to 2022 Recruiting Class

Early Signing Day has come and gone but that doesn’t mean Dabo Swinney and the Tigers are done with the 2022 recruiting class.

The Tigers still have a few needs that need to be met ahead of the February 2 signing day, and on Sunday added two players to the class in an effort to address those needs.

2022 WR Cole Turner, who visited this weekend, was the first to announce a commitment. Turner had been on the Tigers’ radar for awhile but having already signed Adam Randall and Antonio Williams, there just wasn’t room. Then Ajou Ajou and Frank Ladson both transferred, opening up a spot, and Turner had his offer.

Turner, who is the younger brother of Nolan Turner, isn’t rated by the recruiting services, so obviously there will be some bellyaching over this take. Just like there was when Swinney took Nolan, and we all saw how that worked out.

Watch the film. There are a lot of positives. It’s also worth noting that Turner didn’t even play football as a freshman or sophomore, and his senior season is the only experience he’s had playing in the spread.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound WR reeled in 42 catches for 581 yards, with seven touchdowns as a senior. He also returned kicks, averaging 19.5 yards per punt return and 34.5 yards on kickoff returns, returning one of each for a touchdown. In all, he totaled 1,160 all-purpose yards. Moan about this take at your own peril, as Turner shows a lot of potential.

2022 CB Myles Oliver also committed. Like Turner, Oliver also visited this weekend, He just picked up an offer on Saturday, and didn’t take long making up his mind.

Another guy that is not rated, but another guy whose film shows a lot of positives. Georgia Tech was Clemson’s biggest competition over the past few weeks.

The Tigers now have 14 members in its 2022 class, and will still look to add at least one DE, one safety, one LB and one DT.
