Many of Clemson’s 2023 signees are already on campus and participating in spring practice.
While much of the attention has centered on the defensive line haul, there is one player on the offensive side of the ball that ESPN has singled out as the Tigers’ newcomer to watch in the upcoming season.
We will stay on the offensive side of the ball and go with freshman receiver Noble Johnson, an early enrollee who was one of the top offensive recruits Clemson signed in its 2023 class. Not only does Clemson have to get more consistency from its receivers, it also needs a big-play target who can stretch the field. Johnson, at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, has an opportunity to fit that category after averaging 17.2 yards per catch in high school.
Johnson was a 4-star prospect, out of Texas, that ranked No. 381 overall in the 247 Composite and No. 57 among all receivers.
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.
