He might be an idiot, but I more likely is was a gratuitous Clemson pick to make it seem like Clemson is getting competitive with some of these guys.

If he's a big Clemson homer, he may have made the CB to Clemson just to rile up the USC fanbase and make us sweat over it......

Anything's possible, I guess. Thing is, these guys are on a point system based on being right or wrong that also involves a time frame of when their predictions are made. To me it's unlikely this guy would intentionally shoot himself in the foot & lose more credibility. Afterall, this is what he does for a living. Far more likely, imo, is that much like Ryan Bartow apparently believed, it never rains in clemson.

In any event, I have seen some posts even from clemson fans that question his credibility.

Mickey Pyler made some really benign remarks earlier in the Dabo era. He was called in to meet with Swinney & hasn't stepped out of line since. You're either "all in" up there or you'll likely to find yourself out of the loop.

D.J. Jones is MUCH more likely to come to SC than go to that team from the upstate. The CB for him was made by the tater insider, but honestly, what do you expect? He's a guy that has to keep his appeal with his site's fanbase, so it's necessary for him and a lot of those 247 guys to do the same. Don't be surprised if Fravel switches his pick closer to Jones' announcement date.

It is interesting on DJ that USC, Clemson and TN fans all feel really good about their chances. (Not saying I do)

Anyone know what his timeline is?

He will take officials and decide sometime in Dec right?

I think some of these JUCO's never got much of a chance to take visits out of high school and so they are now getting the chance to do that and enjoy themselves.....and I'm happy for them. They earned it.

It's funny because each school thinks it has some special advantage that makes them a lock for DJ but none of them want to aknowledge the others pros.

USC-Sister in Cola and Sawyer
Clemson - Grew up right outside of Clemson
TN - Recruited him consistently even though he didn't qualify and helped place him at current JUCO.

Just a fun recruitment to follow and see how it will play out.

I grew up near Clemson. Part of the reason I chose Carolina is that Mom and Dad couldn't just '''''''''''''''''''drop in''''''''''''''''''' like they could have at Clemson.

Yeah we were #5 on keys "top 5 in order" too. Seems like the guy is just putting out a list for the fans that show him the most love on social media. Of course I have no real inside info on his recruitment and is just my opinion. I think sawyer will recruit him to the garnet and black in the fall.

Just talked to Jones about being his top school and he said it all goes back to the Vols staying with him through high school and into junior college.

He said he's built a strong relationship with Stripling and Jones and has become really close with them.

Alabama is second and he said his friendship with guys that were at East Mississippi last year, DJ Pettway and Jarron Reed is part of it as well as getting to know the staff more on a trip recently.

He will visit USC in two weeks he said and is looking forward to that trip.

His timetable is still late in the fall and he plans in taking all five official visits. He said he knows Auburn, Florida State and Tennessee will all receive official visits.
