Thanks guys. I appreciate the feedback.

While I’m in here, I do want to give a quick update on 4* CB Tori Pride out of St. Louis. I was borderline on whether to add him to the list as the chatter I was hearing had OSU pushing hard on him to be the third corner in their class and, if you haven’t noticed lately, they have been getting their top targets when it comes to that position. A lot of NFL output to sell lately.

I also didn’t get the feeling he was a top priority of ours just yet. Missouri is not one of our typical fertile recruiting areas as it can be hard to get kids out of the Midwest (Goodrich & Reuben being recent exceptions). Well, turns out we are very much in this race and he likes that we only took one CB last cycle and there are opportunities for playing time.

When I do the next target update, he will definitely be on there.

Thanks for your input Blood. Appreciate all of your hard work in keeping us up to date.

I had my doubts about Pride but he has several top schools trying to sway him. A couple of days ago Steve Woltfong gave a crystal ball for Pride to Clemson. When i saw that my first thought was, "Who's Pride"? So I had to check him out. His list of offers and the schools apparently showing the most interest indicates he must have quite a bit of potential.

Simpson is now a 5 star according to 247 and up to #27 overall. Bama is coming on strong. We will find out tomorrow...

Yet another recruit that started out 100% good guys, only to end up somewhere else. Seems we can’t close the deal...

In the 90's, we were on pins and needles to land a 3* or a low end 4*. Now we are swimming with the sharks on the best players in the country. Some work out and some don't. I feel certain we will land a very good replacement.

We lose one 5* to reigning national champions Alabama and you say we can’t close the deal with elite recruits? You seem to have a very short memory, especially at the QB position.

Burch, Foreman, Green, Simpson...

Bama became a player less than a week ago.

Jeff Scott, we miss you...

We may miss CJS but we lost players on his watch as well meaning 50/50 your theory is correct. For me I believe much of our appeal is the atmosphere which cannot be replicated without a visit. Other schools are more lip service so the no visit status is less of a hit than it is at Clemson.

Jalon Walker (LB from NC) is committing on 03/28. Since it is my birthday that must be a good omen.

Walker is a must, along with Shaw and Lukus.

I’d take Skinner over Delp.

Everyone else on your list will help get us back where we belong.
