Over the past five years, the Clemson Tigers have emerged as one of the dominant powerhouse teams in college football. One reason for that has been their stellar recruiting, and it looks like they're only getting better based on recent reports.

According to 247Sports, Clemson is now the leading team for each of the top three recruits in the Class of 2020. Defensive end Bryan Bresee, defensive end Jordan Burch, and quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei have all been projected to commit to the Tigers.

Bresee, the No. 1 overall prospect in the country, has been given a 71 percent chance of picking Clemson. He has also been given a 14-percent chance of picking Ohio State and a seven percent chance of picking Penn State.

Burch, a South Carolina native, has been given a 100-percent chance of picking the Tigers.

Uiagalelei, from California, is weighing offers from Clemson as well as some of the top west coast schools in the country. He has been given a 61-percent chance to pick Clemson, a 34-percent chance of picking USC, and a four percent chance to choose Oregon.

As of writing, Clemson already has the No. 4 recruiting class in the country for 2020, having secured commitments from seven four-star prospects.

But the possibility of securing letters of intent from the top three prospects in the country could turn a potential No. 1 team into an all-time team.
