I think you can add Quin Williams to the list of players we should get. He played with MJ Webb at MoCo, listed as a 4* outside linebacker and fills a need for one with BAW and Skai leaving.

Most of us understand it's going to take time to rebuild the relationships we've lost with hs coaches. The staff we have now gets it and there's enough talent in the surrounding states of Fla, Ga and NC for us to compete.

That said, proud of our guys and the coaching staff for being bowl eligible. This shows the staff we currently have can get it done in recruiting and coaching.
We aren't a long term rebuild either. There was some damage to relationships with state HS coaches, but not as much as you think, and Boom is doing a great job of repairing them. Plus, Clemson is burning bridges and the throwing gasoline on the fire.

A bigger problem with our demise and lack of in-state recruiting success was the lack of in-state recruits. That is improving and next year looks to be one of the better years. If we can hang on, we should be able to get the handful of difference makers that we need to make the next step.

One difference between Boom's recruiting and Spurrier, back when he was successful, is that Boom gets Charlotte. Charlotte is on the state border, has suburbs in SC (where Spurrier did recruit well, just could not get over the state line), and is closer to Columbia than the Tobacco Road schools - who are not particularly concerned with football anyway. We have better fan support, facilities, and play in a better league.

Need to reopen Robert Coopers Thread. Might not be so solid on his FSU committment? Just got a CB flip from Demetric Warren.

Robert Cooper would be a mammoth flip.

Top 100 player, huge DT, kills it in the weight room. If you could get guys like him, Rick Sandige, or Josh Belk. To go with XT. That would be scary.

I think we may just see some of our best recruiting in years because of this. Dabo may have unknowingly awoken the dragon so to speak. Champ wants to win above all else and will do what it takes to make it happen.

He didn't awaken a dragon. Our staff is going to bust their tails on the trail at all times because Muschamp demands that of his staff. Now it's just going to be harder to land players head to head against them. This won't change our effort on the trail at all. There is zero positive spin for what happened in the NC game tonight.
