Here is a comparison of the 247 recruiting ranks of the starting line up for LSU and Clemson:
Obviously both have recruited well. Game will pit the #1 Offense [LSU] against the #3 Defense [Clemson].

For LSU:
College 247 Team Talent LSU=#5, 7 five stars/44 four star/32 three star athletes. Three first team All Americans [AA] 1 second team AA.


Starting lineups: Five 4/5 stars on Offense [one 5 star], 7 three stars [12 players]. 15 four stars on offense 1st and 2nd string.
On Defense all 11 starters are 4 or 5 stars. Four are 5 stars. Second string D: 10 are 4 stars!!

For Clemson: Clemson = #9 team rank; 7 five stars/33 four star/33 three star athletes. One first team AA, 3 second team AAs.

On Offense: 8 first teamers are 4/5 stars. 3 are 5 stars and 3 are three stars. Second team has 6 four stars athletes.
On Defense; 7 first teamers are 4/5 stars. 2 are 5 stars. Second team has 6 four star athletes.
Since LSU's entire starting Defense is made up of all 4/5 star athletes it will be interesting to see how they do against the Clemson Offense of eight 4/5 star starters.
It will be a good match up.
