Let them brag all they want because we're still getting better players and developing them. AND we're still the better team.
They always land highly ranked classes, but it doesn't do them any good against us. However, our classes are very similar according to Rivals. They have 7 (4*) players and 1 (5*) player. We have 8 (4*) players. We're also in good standings for Lewis, Sawyer, Jones, Durant, and maybe Clark, and several others. I think when NSD comes, our class will be better.

Clemson is actually recruiting the trenches this year. They tend to ignore the LOS most of the time.

They fill needs like any other teams. They didn't always get the most highly rated guys at the OL positions if thats what you mean.

They seem to be this cycle, but in the past I would agree with what you are saying.

For those wondering about rivals or 247's recruiting class rankings, they also take into account the players' position ranking and numerical grading, not just the stars.

I'm hoping we can get another BAW-style leader recruit in this class. Both he and his mother were real assets, and I tend to think his enthusiasm and personality may translate to a leadership role on the team.

Key may become that for us.

I'm wanting to see the RB and OL positions heat up some.

Several weeks ago, there was discussion about the players that may not make it in....one of those was Joe Blue. However, word out of Dillion is that things are looking better and he may very well qualify. Of course, there is no certainty until he is on campus, but this is some good news.

I doubt anyone came to USC solely because of BAW, but I'm pretty sure he had a lot to do with Green and Googer. Those are two we know of publicly, and I'm pretty sure he was in the ear of a few others. I wouldn't be surprised if one was DJ Smith. Both are from the Atlanta area.

Tim Irvin is a RB prospect out of fla. I'm not sure how our chances are with him but he's highly ranked and reminds me Of mike Davis. Hope we can get him as I am one of the guys on the board anxious about running back this year.

We were so solid on several big JUCO players, but now it seems like many are opening up a little more. That sucks.

I'm not a subscriber so I don't know the full extent of it, but over the weekend GCC mentioned something about us still being involved with Tyrek Cole and Minkah Fitzpatrick. Again, there may be nothing to it, just thought it was interesting. Their threads are locked so I couldn't post in there.

good chance both will visit.....MF said he wanted to visit Carolina to make sure he made the right decision regarding Alabama....which means he still has some doubts.

Your comment makes me wonder:
1) How long have Dabs & you guys been reading CT & taking our advice?
2) How many days is it 'til USC pops your bubble once again?
3) Should I even bother to sharpen the needle this year?
4) Might it not take a hammer drill to penetrate those thick heads?
5) Hey, taters, buck up or stay in your trucks; #6 is gonna hurt.
