    Can Clemson Get as many as 10 - 5* Recruits?

    https://247sports.com/Season/2020-Fo...eTeamRankings/

    Right now they have 6 - 5* recruits....

    They seem to be in the lead for Burch and Flowe -- which would give them 8.....

    Could they reach the unthinkable and hit 10 or more?

    I just don't get it.....but -- it's impressive nonetheless....

    I don't think they will get 10. They got 3-4 5* commits early on and those guys have done a good job of recruiting other 5*'s telling them they are going to have the best recruiting class ever. Bama has done it before with several of our classes. We will be right behind them and have had better classes than them over the past 5 years so it seems we will be seeing a lot more of Clemson in the future.

    Still awhile till signing day........ lots of things can happen. I had read somewhere that Bama was still in the mix for Flowe and Burch, so I wouldn’t count them out........

    This recruiting cycle is down by our standards, still a great class at #2 at this point, just the top recruits don’t have Bama in their final preferences. I think it goes back to the well documented staff turnover and late with some of the relationships with the top kids. That said, the hay isn’t in the barn yet so things may change and kids may flip so we will see.

    We wouldn`t know how to act if we were able to keep a staff intact for 3 years.

    It's this reason that Dabo has to be considered whenever CNS finally hangs it up.

    I know some people just can't stand the thoughts of him at Bama but the reason Clemson has been so good the last few years is they get top talent (just like us) and he's proven he knows how to coach.

    Unless there's another top coach who has proven he can do both of these and translate that into NCs like Dabo, he deserves the first call IMO.

    Unless his entire coaching staff is coming with him, you have no idea what you would be getting in Dabo.

    No idea??? Come on, really? There will always be uncertainty no matter who it is, but there's enough evidence at this point Dabo knows what he's doing. If he put on a Bama hat, I would only suppose his recruiting might even be better.

    A lot of his staff have Bama roots... (They have an inside joke over there about being the "Clemson Tide".)

    BIG...wouldn’t this be the case with any coach, using this logic?

    Good question. The question is, why go after Dabo? The answer - because he has proven to be a championship caliber head coach, who is able to sustain that level of competition at Clemson. Seems simple, and pretty hard to argue the point. But my point is different - should we assume that he would be able to replicate what he has done at Clemson somewhere else?

    Only 2 coaches in the history of the sport have been able to win even one championship at two separate schools - Saban and Meyer - and there have been many championship coaches who left for other programs. Why are Saban and Meyer different? Because their entire program is about what they do. They are not dependent on specific coaches or coordinators to win. They are innovative and are able to win in different ways, using the tools at their disposal. They can take their program anywhere with sufficient resources and win championships.

    Why would anyone assume that Dabo will be able to pack up his show and win championships at Alabama or anywhere else? Is it all about what he is doing, or is it about the collection of parts that he has assembled at Clemson, none of whom has left Clemson since his first CFP team - NONE.

    Note - I am not saying that we know one way or the other. In fact, I am saying the opposite. We have no idea, and can't know, so shouldn't assume. So, my statement: Unless his entire staff is coming with him, you have no idea what you would be getting in Dabo. You might be getting the next Saban/Meyer, or you might be getting the next Erickson.

    Well, give credit where credit is due. He has taken them to the next level and is sustaining it...
