Three Clemson football players are ranked in the top 20 in the nation at their respective positions…
Hamlin, Richardson Preseason All-Americans
Richardson was named a third-team preseason All-American at offensive tackle by Street & Smith. The senior from Mount Pleasant, SC was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2006 when he had 75 knockdown blocks, second on the Clemson team. He was a big reason Clemson ranked sixth in the nation in fewest sacks allowed and fifth in rushing offense. Clemson also ranked in the top 20 in the nation in total offense and scoring offense.
A starter in each of Clemson's last 32 games, Richardson was earlier named a first-team preseason All-American by Athlon. He is also on the preseason list for the Outland Trophy as announced by the Football Writers Association of America.
Spiller joined Hamlin and Richardson on the preseason first-team All-ACC team selected by Street & Smith. Spiller gained 938 yards rushing as a freshman when he averaged a school record 7.3 yards per carry, fourth best in the nation. He had six touchdowns of 50 yards or more in 2006, also a Clemson record for one season and he is just one off the school record for a career. He was named a first-team Freshman All-American by The Sporting News.
