Those are very nice recruiting classes. Those are not national champ team recruiting classes. Add to that Dabo is their HC. Give a quality coach like Saban +10 to +15 spots with a recruiting class for any running 4yr window and Clemson likely won't sniff a MNC.
Clemson talks like they are and have been MNC contenders for last 20 years. Over that span, have they even finished in the top 10? Heck, they won the ACC last year and weren't even top 20. Delusions of grandeur. Nothing else.
Disagree. Those aren't USC or Bama classes, but they are VERY high for a 4 year span. An Average of a top 15 class is great. And if you look deeper into them, they are stock piling elite talent at certain positions, most notably LB and DE. They are getting multiple top 3 at their position types. They may not have the depth of a USC, but they should be able to compete w/ adequate coaching.
