A four-star talent, Terrell is the top-rated cornerback in the class of 2017. In fact his commitment singlehandedly boosted head coach Dabo Swinney‘s 2017 class from No. 11 to No. 8 nationally, according to 247Sports.
(The University of South Carolina’s 2017 class currently ranks No. 16 nationally, according to the website).
Clemson’s upcoming class already boasts a pair of five-star commitments – 6-foot-4, 188-pound wide receiver Tee Higgins of Oak Ridge, Tennessee and 6-foot-3, 205-pound pro-style quarterback Hunter Johnson of Brownsburg, Indiana.
