Clemson’s run of elite defensive fronts looks like it will continue for the foreseeable future as the Tigers reached into the Yellowhammer State to land five-star defensive lineman Peter Woods‍. Woods (Alabaster, AL) is an incredibly talented prospect and has been compared favorably to former Tiger Christian Wilkins for his style of play, attitude, and leadership. 

Woods is the No. 3 overall defensive lineman in America according to 247Sports. Woods is also the 4th rated prospect in Alabama and was a coveted prospect of the Crimson Tide.

Woods frames up nicely at 6’3-- and the 263-pounder is very mobile in space and plays with great aggression. Woods projects to be a top talent at the collegiate level. The explosive playmaker helped lead Thompson High School to a third consecutive state title this past season.

Woods committed to Clemson over his other Top 4 teams in Alabama, Florida, and Jackson State. Woods had offers from Oklahoma, Texas, Auburn, Georgia, Florida State, and many more top programs.

Woods committed to Clemson via a live stream on YouTube.

His defensive line coach Woodrow Briggs noted that Woods has played in four state championships and started as an 8th grader. Asked what makes Woods different Coach Briggs said, “His drive. I don’t have to beg him to come to work. Everybody has bad days, but he’s going to push everyone around him.”

Asked what a team will get from Woods, Coach Briggs said, “A guy that can contribute right now. This kid is special. Not just on the football field-- he’s mentally tough.”

Woods is another massive win on the recruiting trail for Nick Eason-- who may very well be one of the top recruiters in America for this 2023 cycle. So far, Clemson’s defensive front includes Woods, DE David Ojigebe‍, DE Victor Burley‍, DE AJ Hoffler‍, and DT Stephiylan Green.‍   

The Clemson class has now ballooned up to 17 commits, including prospects not named above (in order of commitment) QB Christopher Vizzina‍, CB Branden Strozier‍, CB Avieon Terrell‍, TE Olsen Patt Henry‍, OL Ian Reed‍, DB Kylen Webb‍, WR Noble Johnson‍, LB Jamal Anderson‍, TE Markus Dixon‍, LB Dee Crayton‍,  OL Ian Reed‍ and, OL Zechariah Owens‍.
