Because our coaches don't feed recruits crap like most of the other schools recruiting him. I take it as Mangus saying athletes need to put in work if they choose USC and don't BS about it.

I know we are looking at Connor Redmond...also just offered Will Gragg from Arkansas (I think that is a longshot)..we are waiting to hear if we make JAckson Harris' short list (rated one of the top 10 TEs in the country) and if we want him...Austin Barnes out of Daniel can be a viable H-back option.

Kyle Markaway is another offer out of Mizzou..but I think it will be hard to get him out of the midwest.

Also, K.C. Crosby is going to try to play the TE/H-back position, and I think Kelvin Rainey will finally get a shot this year.

As far as tall WR...we are recruiting Auden Tate (6'4, 200) out of Fla.

But Ohio State is also favored to get 5-star Torrance Gibson, while Wimbush is also split between the Bucks and Penn State.

I likely senario is that Gibson goes to Ohio State, Wimbush goes to Penn State and Nunez could fall to us.

As already stated, Daniel David out of Georgia, whose film reminds me a little of Connor Shaw, has expressed interest in wanting an offer from us. hahere.

David was a freshman when Kelsey Griffin was a junior at Mill Creek. I think his only offers right now are from mercer and Georgia State (he was invited to the Elite Jr bowl in Georgia..
(Players in that game included Mitch Hyatt, Kaleb Kim, Redmond, Lewis Cousins III, Taj Griffin, Chuma Edoga, Rashad Roundtree..very legit competition)

I watched the highlight of Daniel David and that kid can play. Runs the zone read very well and has some wheels. His accuracy was not bad either. I wonder why such low interest in him?

Maybe size (probably a hair under 6 feet)?
Arm strength?

I really don't know. Mill Creek plays some pretty good competition.
He maybe hasn't gone on the camp circuit yet.

His highlight video on Hudl lists him as 6-2. Maybe he's grown a couple of inches since his last recorded measurement of 6-0. If so, I'm sure interest from schools will increase substantially. He's got fantastic mobility. Arm strength is the only question mark in my eyes (I'd say it's slightly below average), but you don't need an NFL arm to succeed in college, as many have proven.

I am impressed with David and Nunez. I would like to have either one. Nunez looks to have more arm strength and he looks like a better runner. I think with a year to work with spurrier and mangus he could(Nunez) be a heck of a qb for us.

Very impressed with David's lateral movement speed. Arm needs work though.

Idk about anybody else but I'm ready for us to firm up a commitment from some skill guys. I think J Washington will be passed over by a better wr. Also I'm kind of surprised by the quietness of our RB recruiting. With the way we run a lot nowadays, I'd have figured guys would be trying to grab a spot on our RB depth chart by now

Well we've done that with several top prospects that other programs wouldn't, so we can't really fault Clemson for.....
