Clemson fans - answer this
How the hell are you only ranked #10 in the recruiting rankings after signing 29 guys and winning the NC last year???

They get guys who fit in their system both football related and when it comes down to having the right mindset.

I'm just gonna trust Dabo at this point that he knows what he's doing.

Not every coach goes stars over all else. It works for Saban and Meyer. Dabo goes his own way. Get the guys he wants, and molds them in a set, structured system. It works. I am willing to bet he gets more out of his class than most other teams will from theirs

It’s almost like they’re a cult or something.

Also the championship bump comes over the next 2 cycles. Leg work was already done for this class. Wait til next year.

27 of their recruits signed in Dec.

Looking at their class, at least 10 of them are those 4-5 year types that they seem to be able to coach up.

Like someone else said,2020 will be the NC winning recruiting class.


Now as an Auburn fan, tell us how your coach continues to fail with all those 4-5 stars ? Must actually be his inability to coach.

re: Clemson fans - answer this
The recruiting class started a little slow. Our typical footprint (SC, NC, GA minus UGA/Bama guys) was weak. We also went after several development guys at positions like DL that I think will pay off, but might take a couple years to bear fruit.

Clemson's average class is never top 5 and usually in the 7-15 range. They don't take many high risk guys and have little turnover. This is not our most impressive class, but it's far from a disappointment. Next year I expect a class similar to 2018... A smaller class of very highly rated guys.

I always see this, but Clemson doesn't touch the success that they've had without the 4 and 5 star guys that they have/have had.

There’s a combination. I’m not saying he’d be able to do it with Boise St. level recruiting classes, but he brings in a lot of really solid players that seem to have the right attitude.

I’m sure part of that is the culture they’re in, but I don’t think Dabo takes that many risks in the recruiting cycle on unknowns as far as attitude goes.

Looks like they hit on more of their 3 stars, the 4-5 year guys that hold the team together. Can't have everyone going pro after 3 or bailing instead waiting their turn.


This answers it

Only thing I can say is staff does a great job evaluating talent specific for our system, a system that’s been in place a while bc of low turn over that helps.

We obviously get enough “dudes”. You can’t win a NC without blue chip guys

Dabo coaches a lot like Belicheck.. Belicheck gets guys he can plug in and fit his system perfect.. never a superstar but they get the job done (aside from QB)

This is the Clemson system. They get guys who fit and scout as well as anyone. Nobody is in a position where they can question Dabo's strategy in this department.

The staff moved on several months ago fwiw. He had a very disappointing junior season and is maybe the 4th best OL in the state after Morris, Thomas, and Mays.
