It's nice to see recruits noticing our strong finishes in the country and the sec and that helping us. I wish more recruits would notice that we own clemson and always will with Spurrier as coach. Good pickup.

Saw this on PK's website.

The Gamecocks will lose both of their starting tackles after this season and they eye Clark as a possible immediate replacement.
Didn't Shell RS his freshman year? The roster has him listed as a RS-JR. Just wondering could he come back for 2015 if he wanted to or am I missing something.

He could come back...but with his size, physicality and last name, he will likely leave early.

He could but bloodlines and size may send him up before senior season. He'd probably have to a) make absolutely no progression in skills, or b) largely underperform this season in order to secure him for his senior year.

Just my opinion.

This was a great pickup. We're really getting to shelf recruits from all over now. It's about time we got a good one from VA.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up. I remember Shell playing as a True Freshman then he got hurt. I wasn't sure.

Kinda bothers me when Kornblut says "we will lose both tackles" when really it should be "we could lose both tackles". I know he knows the meaning of "could" b/c he's saying today we could land a commitment from Wilder. But that's typical PK trying to be the first to break a story on a kids commitment.

Default Re: 2015 Commitment - Austin Clark

I looked into it. Clark is the highest rated recruit we've pulled out of VA who was from VA since 2002. Rivals has Clark as a 4 Star, 5.9 rating. We've gotten many recruits the past 13 years from Fork Union or Hargrave MC in VA, but they weren't FROM VA, they were just going to prep school there.

In fact, we haven't pulled recruits out of VA really at all over this timeframe. The only guy we got from VA was:

Brandon Samuels
LB
Milford, VA
Caroline
6'3"
232
4.7
2 stars
5.2
7/8/03

Seems like we're getting recruits from places that have in the past been hard to get recruits from (i.e. Louisiana, Virginia, Alabama). Whether we can hold on to these guys or not is a different story.

The place that impresses me most is Louisiana. Getting a guy out of there is like pulling teeth if LSU wants them.

Then the other most likely place for them to go is Alabama or A&M (now).

Still a ton of players there like Georgia, and LSU can't sign them all.

Clark was more impressive get that Milton. Jozy was a good get but we didn't exactly beat out super powers for him. Georgia was his next best offer and I doubt he was a take for them.

To be fair, I think the big reason we got Milton, is b/c lsu didn't offer. Had they offered and gone all out for him, he would've been much harder to pull. We're doing a great job of getting Top 10 players from other states we rarely get anyone from though, and that is awesome. (Christian, Clark, Fields, etc....)

I don't remember Graham getting anyone out of VA, except maybe he helped with some of the guys out of Fork Union or Hargraves, but usually those guys are just going to prep there and not from VA.
