He doesn't compare to quinshad or Sidney at this point in his career.

His SR. year will be key. Does he have the QB so he can develop? Maybe...?

Come to Columbia RS his FR. year and who knows.

Why you are allowed to constantly troll the board here is a baffling.

Your boy Renfro had a offer from Wofford so that alone should tell you not an exact science. Of course you know that you just like to troll your Rivals and act like a DB.

Yep, and he's done it before. The avatar gives it away.

I have more people on ignore now, than I ever have. Guess we just have to wait until we beat Clemson this year to see less trolls on the board...

Sorry, if my opinion about a recruit or how the program stands is different then yours, but I don't think I should be punished because you don't agree with my point of view.

That or a nice big fat NCAA sanction on them but the win is more likely. I can only imagine the meltdown if they drop the game to us in Willy B this year...They'll run Dabo out on a rail despite being only a season removed from a natty.

Getting back on topic, I'd love to have Dennis. Depth seems to be the name of the game with Champ and I fully support it. Having a few 4-5 star WR's is great but you need a deep bench to back them up God forbid something happens on the field. This goes for any position.

That won't work for him, every time news comes we've offered a highly ranked guy he immediately downplays it and says we don't have a chance.

If Spurrier had taken Boom's approach to getting more depth at WR and QB, the last two years would not have happened. You never know when you will have a guy or two not work out - get hurt, transfer, miss on an evaluation.

We have had to largely start over at all of the skill positions due to a lack of talent. It will pay off in a big way when the young talent is in their 3rd and 4th years, but it has caused some painful moments recently.

seriously? So why were Nunez and Scarnecchia brought in for? Deboo and Googer ,among others, were brought in for? in Spurriers last 2 years he brought in 8 WRS and 2 qbs. Plenty enough to "build depth"

Don't count Deebo, and Googer is a pretty good possession receiver. But the others were poor evaluations and lack of player development.

I think we get Smith.

Seriously, dude. He brought in the guys that you mention because the roster was empty. Smack dab empty. Because he ignored the WR position for a couple of years.

Shaq Roland, Shamier Jeffery and KJ Brent were pretty much the entire WR roster when the 8 WRs were brought in over two classes, and Brent and Roland transferred. So our Junior and Senior classes consisted of Shamier Jeffery. You don't think that is ignoring the position???

It should have been apparent to Spurrier that Mitch was not the answer. Scar was a major reach, and Nunez was way beyond a reach - he was never going to be a fit for a passing offense like ours, and he needed a couple of years to get to where he could pass well enough to contribute. So yeah, be blew it at QB also.

Oh - and of the 8 WRs that you mention, 5 are gone, as is one of the QBs.

So if he was not ignoring the positions, he was certainly doing a piss-poor job of evaluating. They had some decent star ratings, so maybe he was going the easy way and recruiting off the services.

I'm with you on both of your points.


1.) He has an excellent QB throwing him the ball, so that shouldn't be a problem.

2.) Agreed, he's not a high impact guy year 1 or year 2 IMO, but a guy that can develop. And as I said before, getting the foot in the door at Gaffney could be a big plus for the next 3-4 years as all of this talent that I mentioned filters through.

The WR position wasn't ignored for a couple of years, numbers weren't the issue. The issue was who was being brought in. Spurrier's last 2 full classes had 7 WRs combined, that isn't a numbers issue. The problem is most didn't deserve an offer. It's not ignoring the position, it's evaluating the position extremely poorly.

Coaching was an issue at the position as well, but I won't open that can of worms.... Dang it I already did.
