Clemson's 2020 recruiting class is on the verge of being historically high-ranking. The latest addition to the class is a big tight end that could have an important role in the offense.

On Monday, Lincoln High School tight end Sage Ennis announced on Twitter that he would be committing to Clemson. The announcement comes less than two weeks after he received an offer from the Tigers.

"It never felt so good to be a Tiger!"

247Sports ranks Ennis as the No. 635 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 20 tight end in the country and the No. 88 prospect from the state of Florida.

Last year Ennis recorded 39 receptions for 596 yards and four touchdowns, and added another nine touchdowns on the ground.

Prior to Ennis' commitment Clemson's 2020 recruiting class featured players at just about every position except receiver.

While the class is still missing a wideout, Ennis gives 2020 quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei his first pass catcher.

With Ennis joining the fold, Clemson's class now consists of 18 players, including five five-star recruits. The team has landed six of those players in the past six weeks alone.

No other college has more than two five-star recruits, and only 11 of them remain un-committed.

Just how good will this 2020 Clemson class be?
