Depends on how the rankings are done. For instance, 247Composite is done by the average ranking of each player.Clemson rarely signs a huge class, and that matters in these rankings. They don't have nearly as much attrition as some of the other major programs do.
Talk about covering your bases.Rusty Mansell , a UGA mod mentioned that he felt Pickens would stick with auburn on NSD, but something about his recruitment made him feel that Pickens could possibly sign with Georgia.
It has obviously worked for Dabo and Clemson. The freshman receiver who torched us in the title game cited these things when giving his reason for switching to Clemson over Bama (according to Herbie during the broadcast).When asked how to recruit aagainst the monster that is Alabama, Mark Richt said you do like Dabo. You push the family atmosphere, you push academics and personal development as opposed to player development.
I’m outta here for awhile, have to go do personal stuff!
