forget that....taters offered Marquavius Lewis (JUCO DE)...I guess the taters maybe just lied about not offering JUCO's.

Some booster didn't like that we were going after him and they weren't. Money talks.

You're not going to believe this but it's true.....DJ was supposed to take a visit to Columbia this weekend while on his spring break. Unfortunately, he couldn't come....because there is a rule that says a JUCO cannot visit a school until he has been at the JUCO for at least a year. That year is up in June. So he's planning on visiting various schools including Carolina this summer. You just can't make this shit up. This was an unofficial visit, so he was paying for the trip.

He is only rated by 247 so far but on there he is a 96 which is a high 4 star and the #3 JUCO player in the country. So definitely highly rated.

This class has tons of boom or bust potential written all over it with a weak year instate and all of the top notch out of state/JUCOs we are going after. Hopefully we land a good number of them and this turns into an all-time great class for us.

According to some posters on TBS he was also not allowed to visit the Cl3m5on Campus - the rule evidently is a NCAA rule or possibly SEC/ACC rule - but was spotted eating out in the area with Brent Venables. I wonder if this is not a violation and also would expect Brent to have picked up the tab which certainly is a violation.

A lot of people whine about teams using the JUCOs as a farm systems to they have these rules to try to appease people. It's silly nonsense in my view, but you have to be fair to the "little guy" in college football I guess and give them a chance.

Another Palmetto State product on the defensive line is the No. 3 overall junior college prospect- defensive tackle D.J. Jones from East Mississippi in Scooba, Miss. The 6-foot-2, 305-pound Jones has grown since he was a Shrine Bowl selection out of Wren High in Piedmont during the 2013 cycle and has offers from Alabama, Florida State, Clemson and Georgia in addition to the Gamecocks. Three Crystal Ball picks are in for Jones, who will visit Columbia at some point- all are currently for South Carolina. Adams also is running point on Jones for the Gamecocks.

As for D.J. Jones (Scooba, Miss./East Mississippi C.C.), the No. 3 juco and top defensive tackle among the junior college ranks, has Alabama, Florida State and Ole Miss high on his list, hometown favorites Clemson and in-state South Carolina strongly in the mix, and Tennessee has staying power after establishing early interest by placing the 6-2, 305-pound run stuffer at East Mississippi C.C. out of high school in Upstate South Carolina.

OL DJ Jones of East Mississippi JC did not make it to a spring game over the weekend and has not immediate visits planned. He’s wrapping up his spring practice this week and is expecting several coaches out to check on him now that they can get on the road again. Jones talked with Clemson recruiter Dan Brooks Sunday and USC recruiter Deke Adams last week. “Both are coming out this week for my spring practice,” Jones said. “Choosing between those two, to tell you the truth, I couldn’t. I feel comfortable aboth both places.”One bonus item for USC is that Jones has a sister who goes to school there. He said USC and Clemson likely will get two of his official visits. He has not decided on the others.
Jones recently added offers from Florida, Arzizona State and Texas A&M. Some of his other offers are Alabama, Tennessee, Florida State, Ole Miss, Southern Cal, Mississippi State, Georgia and LSU.
He does not have favorites at this point. “I’ve giving everybody a fair chance.”

Weird.

247 Timeline has him unofficially visiting Miss St. on March 29th, 2014.


Any rate. It's crazy to think we're in good position to land half of the Top 10 JUCO's

"I met the whole coaching staff. I was mainly around coach Jones, coach Stripling," Jones explained. "We just talked about academics. That's the main reason I am where I am right now so we talked a lot about that. They have a great academic center."

"What stood out the most was the defensive line coach and knowing that he knows what he's talking about. He's a great coach. Then, getting to hang out with Butch Jones. He hung out with us the whole day Saturday," Jones said. "I've known him since my senior year but this was the most time I spent with him so that was good.

"I'm really looking at the same thing at every school. I'm looking for a defensive line coach who knows what he's doing and a place I would be comfortable at for one or two years, a nice place," Jones explained. "This is what I'm doing; I'm using these unofficial visits to determine who will get official visits during the season."
