Old update .. since this, he has been offered by USC. Per TBS & GCC.

Quote:
Summerville junior DB Darrin Smalls was seen this week by recruiters from Clemson, USC and Virgina Tech. He visited USC during the season and was at Clemson for a camp last summer. He's not yet been offered. Smalls intercepted six passes as a sophomore and five this season. He also returned two punts for touchdowns and one kickoff for a touchdown.

DB Darin Smalls of Summerville picked up his second offer this week, and it was from Virginia Tech. USC was his first offer and he continues to favor the Gamecocks. He visited USC for their first bowl practice last Saturday. Smalls also is drawing the interest of Clemson, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame. This season Smalls had 58 tackles and 5 interceptions.

I think Darin is ours to lose.
Come play at DB U and we will get you to the NFL.

Go to Clemson...and you will compete in a watered-down conference, not get coached, not improve, and see your potential wasted.

It is a Clemson thing to do (make an offer on Christmas).

Clemson couldn't make a splash with him by claiming "we are your first offer" so they waited until Christmas to give him the news.

Except that it is the quiet period where contact is prohibited so it would be a NCAA violation.

Good thing he is a terrible coach bc they can recruit. Tacky or not, offering on Christmas day is pretty darn smart. Family is pretty important to most of us & there isn't a day when you are around more family members. Having said that, from an Xs & Os standpoint, Dabo & Vulnerables can't coach.

Secondary violation!
Not like it will hurt, because secondary violations aren't even slaps on the wrist.

USC held its first bowl practice Saturday and junior DB prospect Darin Smalls of Summerville was on hand to take it in as part of an unofficial visit. "It went pretty good," Smalls said. "I met some players and saw some new things. It's a nice campus." USC is Small's first offer and he's also hearing from Clemson, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame. And he has the Gamecocks as his current leader. "I really do like Carolina but I'm waiting it out right now," he said. "They play five defensive backs coach my chances of playing would be high. The coverages are similar to what we do so I could fit right in." Smalls plans to get to USC, Clemson and Georgia Tech for junior days. This season Smalls had 58 tackles and 5 interceptions. He had 6 interceptions as a junior.

There was more under the tree on Christmas day for junior DB Darin Smalls of Summerville than just a bunch of gifts. He also received an offer from Clemson. The Tigers join USC and Virginia Tech as offers for Smalls who projects to be one of the state's top prospects for 2014. Smalls said Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables contacted him with word of the offer. "I like the town and the surroundings," Smalls said of Clemson. "The coaching is good and the atmosphere is nice." Small has been favoring USC and said the new offer did not change that. "My favorite as of right now is still USC," Smalls said. Smalls had 58 tackles last season and totaled 11 interceptions over the past two seasons.
