Two Clemson Freshmen Ranked Among College Football’s Top 50 Newcomers

Cade Klubnik and Toriano Pride were recognized by ESPN by being ranked among the Top 50 newcomers in college football.

Pride, who flashed glimpses of greatness during the spring, ranks No. 34.

Klkubnik, the former 5-star prospect out of Austin, Texas, ranked No. 36.

Both could play pivotal roles for the Tigers depending how things play out.

“Clemson lost corners Mario Goodrich and Andrew Booth Jr., as well as safety Nolan Turner, who combined for half of Clemson’s 12 interceptions a season ago. The Tigers will need multiple people to step up and help in the secondary, and the 5-11, 185-pound Pride could earn playing time early this season. Clemson returns starter DJ Uiagalelei this season, but it’s never a bad thing to have some competition and someone to push another player to improve. Last season, Uiagalelei ranked 77th in total passing yards, 117th in yards per attempt, 101st in passing touchdowns, 92nd in total interceptions thrown and 112th in completion percentage. If those numbers don’t improve, Klubnik, the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the class, could push Uiagalelei for playing time.”ESPN
