Quick chat: New four-star Clemson commit talks Tigers
I had a brief chat with new four-star commit Isaiah Campbell after he announced his pledge to Clemson earlier today. He isn't the program's most talkative recruit, but I figured I might as well share some of his quotes with you all.Campbell that the highlight of junior day was "talking to the players and seeing what college and college football was really like."Campbell then added, "I love Clemson and the people."He's one of three Top-125 commits on the defensive front in the 2025 class. Nick Eason has filled both DL spots in the class. Chris Rumph pulled a five-star talent in Ari Watford out of Virginia as his first commit. He will take at least one - and possibly two - more defensive ends in the 2025 class.

National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a Clemson Sports Talk rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the Clemson Sports Talk Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide Clemson Sports Talk readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Clemson and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Clemson and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
