Clemson LB Shaq Smith (expected starter) has entered the Portal

My apologies for starting a different Clemson thread, but the other threads got so tainted by GlobeTiger and others that I didn't want to continue the stink.

Copied from a poster on Reddit:

quote:

Almost certain he's coming to MD. There were rumors he was transferring here since Locksley was hired. His father figure is Corey Robinson, who essentially helped raise him since 7th grade. He's MD's DB coach. It's why he probably has the "do not contact" tag on, his decision is already made up.


It looks like that Clemson front 7 is getting even more suspect as the offseason progresses. Losing your top 5 DLineman, and 2 starters at LB - meaning you're losing 6 of your starting front 7 (plus your top backup dlineman) - and then a presumed starter (and a leader by Dabo's words) at Will transfers... 'Taint lookin' good.

But, but, but Finebum keeps saying football is fun at Clemson, but its a job at Alabama, and no fun. Everyone wants to play at Clemmons because its so fun.

I have so much respect for Locksley. He left like a man. He was up front and finished coaching. He didn't try to poach recruits that were committed to Bama. He just handled everything the right way

Lord.



It would be interesting to see why this guy is leaving Clemson. Doesn't make a lot of sense on the surface.

I was just ribbing you, GlobeT. My only real gripe with you in that thread was that you kept saying the same thing and making the same point over and over again, as if I (and we) didn't hear you the first 3 times you said it.

Didn't realize Feaster planned to transfer as well. They obviously have a ton of depth at RB, but that still sucks for them.

re: Clemson LB Shaq Smith (expected starter) has entered the Portal
One reason and a huge reason Clemson was good last year was because they persuaded so many players on their defense to return for another year.
They sold beating Bama and a National Championship as bait and their best players took it. A gamble for the players & the school that paid off.

This year all that attrition is going to take its toll. Easy schedule,but then there are the Playoffs.
