"Over the years, I want you to think about this-- Artavis Scott, Hunter Renfrow, Amari Rodgers-- these [current] receivers are tall, they're outstanding, but there's always been a shifty slot receiver in this offense when they've been great," said ESPN Analyst Kirk Herbstreit during the third quarter of Clemson's 10-3 opening season loss to Georgia. "I just feel like it's missing right now to offset just the more lean, longer receiver."

Well, Clemson just added a 2023 receiver commit that fits the mold of Scott, Renfrow, Rodgers, and even closer to former Tiger and current Pittsburgh Steelers' receiver/returner Ray-Ray McCloud (5-foot-9, 190 pounds).

Nathaniel Joseph‍, a four-star receiver from Edison High in Miami. FL, chose Clemson over Alabama, Florida, Florida State, and Texas A&M on Friday. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound speedster, who is ironically from the Sunshine State like McCloud and has the nickname "Ray Ray, scored 14 touchdowns as a receiver and return specialist in 2020 for the 3-A Red Raiders. 

Joseph, an All-Dade Miami Herald 2020 first-team selection, is the No. 23 receiver in the 2023 class and the first commitment in the class for the Tigers.
