Clemson will most definitely be a factor. History tells us this.

And Clemson, UGA, and USC insiders all agree that it's a USC/UGA battle with Clemson trailing at this point. And the last 3 CBs have been for USC, all CBs for Clemson range from June 2016 to October 2017. As of today if he were choosing Clemson would be 3rd on the list, obviously he isn't choosing today though.

We thought the same thing about Ross and Dabs stole him from Saban last second, guaranteed Clem$on will be in mix til the end.

I'm not saying they're not in the mix, I'm saying that as of today they are trailing us and UGA and it's not a disputable point. I've followed recruiting long enough to know nothing is ever over until they sign on the dotted line.

Exactly. He wants to play end and Dab$ may try to talk him into playing tackle.

A five star recruit in their backyard and you think Clemson hasn't full court pressed this guy? we lead simply because he grew up a Carolina fan, but make no mistake Clemson is pursuing him hard.

Pickens and Crouch ARE the 2019 recruiting class. If we miss out on these guys, it will be another class that "meets needs."

These two could be the start of a talent influx like the one we had that led to our 11-2 seasons.

Yeah basically this. Dabo has turned up the heat, the difference is Muschamp has had the heat up longer and is recruiting him to play DE not DT.

I know that it's easy to think that before this class is assembled but let's see how it's put together first. We're in on a few guys that would fall under that "talent influx" category not just Pickens and Crouch.

They donít have to. Swinney said last week, he doesnít want kids that wonít come to visit. In other words, they come to us, we donít go to them. How can that arrogant bastard get away with that.

Not true. Dabs will say that he can play end and then talk him into playing DT after he signs. He will do that by having him look at the depth chart - which Dabs should have shown him pre-signing. Except that he is Dabs. Hopefully, Pickens can see that for himself.

Since he is a Signing Day guy, the success of Clemson, UGA and South Carolina will play a big role. Git those mangy fleabags (I assume real Tigers have fleas, I never wanted to get close enough to check).

But Clemson is having incredible luck with DEs. First they have a 5* hometown player fall into their lap (Henry is from Clemmons) and now Dabs can claim that he re-named Clemson County in Pickens' honor.

I don't think this years class was just a class of "meeting needs". We missed on some of the higher names we were going after, but guys like Wonnum, Sandidge, Vann, Horn, Louis, Mukuamu, Thompson if he gets in, Gwyn, and I think we got some steals in Fenwick and Valentine. I even missed some, but those are guys at almost every single position on the field that could step on any roster and compete for a starting job right away.

I mean if you look at the recruiting classes that Spurrier was bringing in during "the run" this class, ranking wise, rivals every single one of them. This coaching staff swung for some Home Runs last year and ended up with a double instead and we have fans that aren't satisfied with that for some reason. 2019 this coaching staff went to the Barry Bonds school of performance enhancement and are swinging to hit the ball out of the park. I believe this time next year Gamecock fans are going to look at the highest ranked recruiting class in our history. I think we'll have a couple of 5*s and all of the critics will be silenced.

We can't let Clemson pull an XT with this kid.

And this is a case where, hopefull, Clemson's recruiting success will work against them. If it doesn't and the kid goes to ride the bench behind a bunch of D-line talent, well then more power to ya' kid.

It was Muschamp that said he could sell ice to Eskimos. So far he hasn't sold much ice.

Iím glad none of you star chasin fools are I charge of our recruiting. While yíall complain about not winning the popularity contest with the recruiting pay sites Muschamp is doing his own evaluations and filling our team with ATHLETES that have WORK ETHIC and believe in TEAM IDENTITY. They run faster, play harder, and fight til the end better than even some of our best teams in Gamecock history. And the best part... heís just getting started!
