Clemson lands commitment from top-ranked 2020 player, knocks Alabama out of No. 1 spot
The Clemson Tigers are building some momentum on the recruiting trails, and on Tuesday, they got a huge boost to their 2020 class.
That’s because 5-star DT Bryan Bresee out of Maryland committed to the program, and he’s the No. 1 overall player in the 247Sports composite rankings.
As you can see below, he announced his decision by touting all the talented defensive linemen who have gone through Clemson over the past few years:

This is important because it means Alabama no longer has the nation’s top-rated recruiting class. In the new 247Sports rankings following Bresee’s commitment, Clemson is No. 1 and the Tide are No. 2.
Alabama has 15 commitments to Clemson’s 12, but expect this to be a back-and-forth battle over the next several months.
