Not a joke, getting something. Otherwise, they’d be pro and at OTA’s.

Great players want to play with other great players, and having guys interact on social media and in showcase events is huge.
Great point.

Players like to play with elite players. Hilinski will hopefully bring in some top WRs in the next two cycles....same with Pickens....

Something where a Clemson recruiting guy quoted Zacch on something he never said. Think there was more to it though.

I have a hard time believing that realistic amounts of $$ persuades a player to give up being a multi millionaire and also being one season further from the big contract.

Edit: Decided to change my post out of respect for Zacch who is a quality kid, and we are truly getting an excellent athlete and person.

I won't bother to even try to explain that Clemson crowd. Just consider that it is probably less believable that they do it for the heck of it.

It might be hard to believe, but is it easier to believe that these guys do it because they are just really swell fellows who love playing college football for a tiny little stipend, a meal plan, and because they enjoy not being millionaires?

Which seems more unrealistic? If you think about it, I think you'll have your answer.
The money will be there if they don't end up with a career ending injury, or perhaps just an injury could drop them from first round to being a later draft pick. Nonetheless, if I were projected as a first rounder, I'd have got drafted and came back for my senior year after I finished in the NFL.


All that being said, this thread is about Pickens, not clemmy players.

Yep. That's why I changed my post completely, but you beat me to it. No need to even mention them in such a great thread about an outstanding kid. Feel free to cut my post as well if you'd like. It contributes nothing to the convo about Zacch.

This is such a fantastic pickup for us. CWM and staff are delivering. We just need to give them time. Think about it, we went from 3-8, to a bowl game the first year, to a 9-4 season last year. He is getting shit done, period, and I love the staff he has put together. Good things are coming again.

This was really a massive pick up for us. Reminds me of a momentum swing when Gilmore signed with us back in the day. Dominoes started falling after that day. I think with Pickens committing, and we already had Hillinski, the chips will start falling our way, hopefully the blue ones.

It's enough to definitely make them think about it anyway.
