Clemson is set to host four 2022 prospects on official visits this weekend. DT Caden Story, RB Andrew Paul, LB Kobe McCloud and S Kylon Griffin.

LB TJ Dudley was originally slated to visit this weekend but will now visit the following weekend. It is the only visit Dudley will take before signing day, and Dabo Swinney still has an in-home scheduled with the LB.

Like Dudley, Story has no other visits set up at this time. He is set to announce on Feb 2.

Griffin is set to announce on Feb 1. He visited Nebraska last weekend and will head to Southern Cal next weekend.

Paul has been scheduled to visit Notre Dame next weekend but there is some talk that he might scrap that visit and instead visit Oregon.

McCloud, who recently backed off his commitment to FIU, visited UMass last weekend and does have a grayshirt offer from Arizona where brother Jordan McCloud is a quarterback.

Clemson hosted three official visits last weekend, with CB Myles Oliver and Cole Turner already announcing commitments. The third, DE Jahiem Lawson, has yet to pull the trigger on a commitment but that could be coming in the very near future.

The chances of the Tigers hitting on every one of the remaining uncommitted players is pretty good here. That would put the class at 20 members, plus the addition of Hunter Johnson.

If that in fact comes to fruition, a class that looked to be falling apart a few weeks back might just end up ranked somewhere inside the Top-15. Of course, that would depend on what some other teams do before signing day, but it is absolutely doable.
