Been thinking about this a lot today. The development part. I agree with you. I think our coaching staff does an excellent job at this. Chris Low just wrote an article the other day that said we got the best results out of our recruits.

Having said that, if we can develop the kids we are getting (which I do not mean this as a knock on these kids), imagine how we could develop the kids if we were ranked in the top 10 in recruiting.

Yes, our coaching staff can take a 3 star player and make them a great player. But then wouldn't our staff be able to develop 5 star talent even better?

ESPN gets a lot of publicity for their recruiting coverage but are generally considered the least accurate of all the services. They are the only ones with Clemson that high in their rankings. Dabo must be one of their contributing analysts.

Anything and everything that brings this to a stop is beneficial. I hear people say they don't care if Morris stays, but the truth is Morris staying helps them recruit. What needs to happen next for us to really get up in the recruiting ranks, Morris needs to leave, Dabo needs to get on the hot seat and get fired, they have a total rebuild and we get all the recruits we want from the SC/NC area. If anyone TRULY wants to rise in the recruiting ranks, that is the next shoe to fall.

ESPN had USC in the mix with Powell as of last night but that isnt the case, coaches have informed him that there is no space. Misinformed

Clowney is a prime example of that. He could be great just on pure God given abilities but look how he's developed into the best lineman/player in college football.

Only way that would make sense is if our staff knew we weren't getting Bryant and we called him back. Who are the other choices? We were in his top 4 when Florida snubbed him with Miami, SoCal and Oregon...did he drop anyone off or are those 4 remaining? If those 4 remain intact, I'd say he's just blowing smoke. If he's removed one or two, it means something real may have happened in that past day or so.

Clemson has one OL on their board and 3 DE's and a DT. Looks like they've forgotten the trenches again.

There were 33 five star prospects this year according to Rivals (most I have ever seen).

USC offered 16 of them:

Robert Nkemdiche (GA)
Vernon Hargreaves (FL)
Carl Lawson (GA)
Laquon Treadwell (IL)
Derrick Green (VA)
Kendall Fuller (VA)
Reuben Foster (AL)
Laremy Tunsil (GA)
Greg Bryant (FL)
Leon McQuay (FL)
Frank Herron (TN)
Christian Hackenberg (VA)
Montravious Adams (GA)
Alex Anzalone (PA)
Taquan Mizzell (VA)
Von Bell (GA)


5 in Georgia
4 in Virginia
3 in Florida
1 in Pennsylvania
1 in Illinois
1 in Tennessee
1 in Alabama

Who on that list do you really think USC should've had a hat on the table with?
