CLEMSON — Clemson has a total of 71 players on the active roster (32 offense, 36 defense, 3 special teams) on athletic scholarship entering 2016 Signing Day.

Decisions are yet to be made on which existing players will retain their full rides for the 2015-16 academic year. Each Division I football program is allowed a maximum of 85 scholarships.

Returning starters indicate the player who started the most games at his position in 2015. That means Christian Wilkins counts as a returning backup in 2016.

The six early enrollees are accounted for. Players expected to sign with Clemson Wednesday are not.
