How much does this have to do with our two DL coaches leaving?

Don't like this one either. Certainly would have been nice to know this before signing day. Only hurts depth for one year but would have been nice to know you had that extra scholarship.

Not sure how this affects size of 2018 class since he was a senior anyhow - he was already counted as leaving when looking at that class.

As Robert said, this would have been nice to know earlier so another one in 2017 class could have been signed.

Expect Clemson to take 2-3 defensive tackles in the 2018 class after not signing one this year

Unfortunately I don't think he will be the last before the start of the season.. I could see Kelly Bryant leaving after spring if he doesn't win the starting job.. And possibly Adam Choice..

That is just the one bad downfall of great recruiting classes..

Well F^#^%. I was really really excited to see him play this year and see him completely dominate with the DL.

Wish you well Scott and thank you for your hard work.

Disagree. Then you lose a scholly in the 2018 class.

This doesn't impact the 2018 class since he was going to be a senior. It would have helped as was stated had Clemson known before signing day as they could have added a DT in 2017 class and they would have had a year of experience before Pagano leaves. Timing not in Clemson's favor on this transfer or the Baker loss.

But if he would have decided to transfer before signing day, then we would lose his scholarship for the 2018 class if we had signed a DT correct? Therefore making the 2018 class smaller?

Yes, but the need is now so his ship could have been moved up to 2017 thus givng better depth this year and also giving more experience going into 18 instead of adding another there.

We will have some background on this situation up on the site later

And it would have helped spread the depth out across years more as well.

This hurt depth wise for sure but I think Wilkins and Lawrence will be the starters inside. I think this is a sign for Huggy Bear that he needs to step up and be that next guy. Dabo has raved about Pinckney and I think this kid is going to be a stud and if they didn't have so many guys they wouldn't have redshirted him. I remember hearing Pinckney was dominant at times during camp and bowl practice. Then you have Jabril who is undersized but gives you a body and I don't know about Johnson, he has been non-existent since arriving. If Johnson is going to make a move it has to be this year. Pagano leaving hurts in experience big time but I really like the guys they have with Wilkins, Lawrence, Huggins and Pinckney. I think those guys have the potential to be the best set of DT's in the country. I wish nothing but the best for Pagano but too me I think he wants to be at a place where he is the "guy" inside like Watkins was this year and with Wilkins and Lawrence I just don't know that would have been the case. I promise I am not trying to minimize him leaving I just think with two 5 stars and maybe the 2 most premier DT's country that him getting enough snaps to maybe get to the next level may have played a part. He did graduate and help take Clemson back to the mountain top and for that I thank him and Pagano will forever be a Tiger and a class individual...
