Clemson begins its bid at returning to the top of college football soon after the roster settles between NFL decisions and the last pieces of the 2018 signing class.

That means the early, early rankings are in full swing and Stewart Mandel, a former Fox Sports and Sports Illustrated college football analyst, is high on the Tigers in 2018.

Citing talent on defense and at QB, The Athletic writer pegs as the No. 3 team ($), behind Alabama and Ohio State, and ahead of Wisconsin and Georgia in the top-5.

Other notable rankings include Miami at No. 8, Virginia Tech at No. 21 and Florida State at No. 25.
