UT is already full with all their recruits.....the taters may be lying because they figured out he didn't want to go there.

I think he's "not a take" for Clemson because he doesn't want to go there and their staff is spinning it that they dumped him before he dumped them. Seems like Dabo's M.O.

^THIS

It was only after our annual beatdown game that they came out and said they were full at DB. However, they then offered another DB after Smith started talking about us more. Taters gonna tate.

Yup. They can't handle being beat by USC anymore.

Smith is viewed as a CB by some teams and a S by others. To my understanding, CB is where he will start but being a guy that may move from CB to S may limit the interest of some teams as they don't view him as a true CB or a S.

Clem had a big DB class last year but seeing how their secondary has performed recently, they certainly could use all the help available. This is from the Clem 247 insider 28 days ago:

Entering this stretch run of the recruiting season Clemson is the team to beat here for his services.
Given their interest level up until now as well as his during the recruiting process, I am unsure why Clem has (apparently) moved on.

With Christian leaving the program, Smith - Green - and one 1 more CB (maybe look at a few jucos?) need to be a part of this class. We cross train our DBs and Smith fits our system.

I think it has to do with the relationship between coaches and recruits. If DJ was asked not to visit USC, and he obviously didn't listen, he may have p.o.'d Clemson. Dabo wants to prevent his commits from visiting other schools, and I know DJ wasn't a commit, but he has been assumed to be going to Clemson for months. Remember what they told BAW when he committed to Carolina. It's obvious that the Clemson coaching will say and do anything to get a recruit, except they obviously lack the ability to tactfully change anyone's mind. They probably threatened to pull his offer if he visited.

Remember they did the same thing with Mike Davis.
Although he was a verbal commitment, he visited USC and had his offer pulled.

And in my book, verbal commitments are as binding as no commitment.

I just heard this morning that we are evaluating several JUCO cb, FWIW. Don't know why we weren't doing this sooner.

To my knowledge Mike Davis never committed to Clemson in any fashion. He was committed to Florida over a year then they went after Marshall after telling him they were done. He visited Clemson but that was it, from what I remember.

YOu are right.
My mistake...he never made at least a public verbal commitment...but his offer was pulled after he visited USC.

Yeah, I remember there was a big stink over it and James was pretty upset. Even called Dabo out on twitter.

Ryan Bartow of 247 says we have a big lead for Smith, and thinks he is one of the top two DB's in Georgia this cycle.

He also said he was a cornerback and he rates him ahead of Green. He also said that he would play immediately.
