I will say that McClendon has recruited lights out for Oregon. Seems like an ace recruiter.

re: What is going on with South Carolina's class?
Oregon is a much easier sell than South Carolina right this moment. I wish him well, but I'll be interested to see how he develops the talent he brings in.

WR is probably South Carolina's weakest position group. Mcclendon brought in a bunch of big bodied receivers who look amazing on paper, but most of them are slow and are cursed with brick hands. I'm hoping Bobo's recruiting approach will pay off quick dividends.

Idk but my USCe friend has quit following recruiting and claims to not like college sports much anymore.

re: What is going on with South Carolina's class?
I would attribute this to a few things besides on field performance.

1. The State of SC has a week class this year.

2. UNC has NC locked down and obviously there are other regional recruiters.

3. Very poor national recruiting. This could possibly be viewed more as a symptom. They basically have to go out of state. And you're not succeeding if you just pull a bunch of 3 stars.

Y'all got talent to turn it around this year. Good QB, RB and your defense should be good. Just gotta stay healthy. Your overall talent is better than Tennessee. They have better linemen but your defensive talent is better. Just got to stay healthy.

Also gotta keep beating Georgia!

Will's got the same issue les miles had going into his final season . Everyone was telling the kids he was going to be fired during or after the season so why go there if you dont know who the coach will be during your time there. Les Miles saving grace was he was at LSU and players still wanted to play for LSU. USCe does not have the state or Area on lockdown like LSU did so now you are seeing a low rank class for carolina.

Tatum went to USCe over GT. Arkansas and ECU were never serious for Tatum. FWIW, GT Rivals guys think Tatum ends up staying home with GT. It was a shock he committed so early to USCe. GTs coaches are staying on him.

Reminds me of marvin wilson picking FSU over LSU. I bet he regrets that decision everyday.


I don't get that feeling at all. Marvin Wilson seems to love FSU despite the coaching turnover. He is a team captain pre-season All American and a Texan with no connection to Louisiana. He is projected as a Top 10 overall pick in the draft.

I doubt LSU even crosses the guys mind.

Wow! Now I am seeing why Muschamp is not getting his team to recruit at a higher level since McClendon went to Oregon. Good job to Oregon for hiring him. Good Luck!

Let’s see if the guys he gets at Oregon can catch the goddamn ball this time around. For every Deebo or Bryan Edwards we have Josh Vann, Nick Muse, Mullins, Xavier Leggette, etc etc

I guess this is fair if your biggest indicator for recruiting ability is solely ratings.

McClendon started out as RB coach for UGA from '09-'13, and was the primary recruiter for Crowell, Gurley, Marshall, Michel, and Chubb. However Thomas Brown became the RB coach in 2014 for 2 years of Gurley's and Marshall's career and all of Michel's and Chubb's career.

Fast forward to McClendon as the WR coach and offensive coordinator for us and you see most of his recruits either didn't work out or it's still TBD if they will work out. The guys (all WRs) he was the primary recruiter for and actually coached here are:

OrTre Smith - .9413 rating with career stats of 42 rec/ 420 yds/ 4 TDs in 16 GP over 3 years. Has only played 8 games in the last 2 years because of rare injury.

Josh Vann - .9388 rating with career stats of 37 rec/ 289 yds/ 1 TD in 8 GP over 2 years. Broke his hand last year and hasn't been able to beat out guys ahead of him.

Chad Terrell - .8818 rating with career stats of 7 rec/ 76 yds/ 0 TD in 5 GP over 3 years. Terrible injury history hear too starting in HS.

Randrecous Davis - .8780 rating with career stats of 12 rec/ 123 yds/ 1 TD in 9 GP over 4 years. Injury and ability issues here.

Korey Banks - .8519 rating with no WR stats recorded in 1 GP over 2 years. Was moved to DB for a year and transferred.

Darius Rush - .8506 rating with no WR stats recorded in 0 GP over 2 years. Was moved to DB last year.

TyQuan Johnson - .8487 rating and my personal favorite recruit for McClendon. This guy is offered a scholarship and signs an NLI to play for us in 2017, but doesn't qualify. We do the same thing in 2018 and he still doesn't qualify. We do the same in 2019 and he does qualify which is good but now we've used 3 scholarships on a average rated guy for 0 years of service only for McClendon to leave his 6 figure position coach job here and not coach the guy he wanted very badly.

Sorry for ranting, but I do not thank McClendon at all for his time here other than getting us good recruits that he didn't end up coaching.

So moral of the story is Oregon should be fine with McClendon if they want him to recruit guys from the SE that he doesn't have to coach, but that relies on having good position coaches which I believe Oregon does. "BMac" as we used to call him down here has enough of a repeating history of not developing players with talent to be used as negative recruiting against him.

So best of luck to Oregon with him.

McClendon will be working under Moorehead and with an up and comer GA.

That being said, he seems to be a recruiter. I am not sure if losing him caused some drop off. I know Oregon recruits as a group effort.
