WRs from Gaffney have worked out well for this university, I wouldn't mind Mr. Smith getting the ball rolling as far as commitments.

Why wouldn't he? His only other options are Charlotte, Coastal Carolina, Duke, East Carolina, Old Dominion, or Wofford.

Let's see what his offer list looks like when NSD rolls around. When Urich committed to us his next best offer was Duke and he ended up getting multiple SEC offers later on.

UT hardly qualifies as multiple SEC offers. Look I understand you are a full Muschamp supporter, but I am not sold on him yet or his ability to evaluate offensive players. When I see a player with no d-1 offers other then Duke, it is concerning.

Ummm on the D1 offers you're either behind on D1 or trying exaggerate for a point, not sure which.

I don't see it that way. How many "project" or "under the radar guys" do you really think are out there? Muschamp is still unproven. He had a mediocre season with a mediocre recruiting class. 8th in the SEC in recruiting is mediocre. Bottom 50% in the conference.

Either you evaluate talent and get in early with a kid who may be flying under the radar a bit; or, you are the 14th offer for a stud that everyone knows about. I think some schools just use stars and recruiting services. Either strategy opens itself for criticism and praise. I think this kid has a ton of potential, so kudos for CWM for extending the offer.

Recruiting services rate him as a 3* currently. That's not terrible. Wouldn't it make sense that with our bigger recruiting staff we're getting in with kids early, especially kids in SC?

Muschamp has an offensive staff that I'm sure has a role in evaluating talent. In 2016 we got Edwards and Dowdle who contributed right away.

We doubled our win total from the prior year. Not many teams increased their win total by 3 games in 2016 vs 2015.

Default Re: 2018 - Dennis Smith

Dennis has some talent and I'm sure he will develop into his senior year, but he is a 3 star prospect through and through. I saw him make some really great catches last year and I saw him have some really bad drops early in the season.

He got better as the season progresses, which is one big thing that you look at with this level of a recruit. If he continues to progress then his untapped potential will get him a few more solid d1 offers. While Dennis is a good player and may turn out to be a better college player, he doesn't have the overwhelming physicality that Quinshad brought to the table.



I don't mean to take anything away from Dennis, but I think it's a good play for Muschamp (getting his name in the door) right now because Gaffney has several very gifted rising sophomore and Freshmen players that could easily be d1 talent. The 9th grade team was undefeated last year and the JV team did well as well.

Here are some articles on that class going back as far as 2013 where they went undefeated as 6th graders. I believe they were undefeated as middle schoolers as well, but I'm not sure.
