That would be a product of having the original window open and posting before seeing any other responses. Thanks for your analysis though.

It is so funny with some of the posters on here. Some on here are mad when we do not get every 5*, some are mad (it seems) that we even recruit 5* (because we have no shot since we are not in the SEC.) If we get these guys then we get them. If not, it will not change my life. Sit back, calm down and wait 24 hours before you go into a melt down. It will all change tomorrow. For better or worse it will all be over in 2 days.

Ive heard he's already made one staff aware of his decision. This is very disappointing no matter how one try's to spin it. Losing out on him is a HUGE loss especially to a staff that has only been together for 2 months. I love all the players commited to us, but we've missed on a lot of big time talents this cycle. What once looked like a sure fire top 10 class is now looking like a fringe top 20 class.

No joke! Yea, it will be dissapointing if he does not choose Clemson, but some make it sound that they should just go ahead and write off the next four seasons.

Yeah he has always kind of favored them so it wouldn't be a huge surprise! I remember him skipping Clemson visits to go there before their season meltdown oh well , I think Dabo is doing the best he can competing against the sec/espn

17-18 year olds get sold sec by espn constantly wAy before they ever become recruits!

Clemson will be great with or without Montravius Adams. Some of you need to also understand that he just came off his visit from Auburn and could be riding high.

Did his Mother go on the visit with him this weekend? It will be interesting to see how much input she has on his decision.

I mean its a little disconcerting that we're being beat out by a team that just experienced a 3-9 season.

Sounds like his decision is made; Dabo cannot be called the closer after this year and last.

Sorry the board's a bit pricklish today; it was simply more of a request for repartee amidst the hailstorm, rather than a shot at a man already down.

But to each his own...

Agreed... This class is good... but if you want to take us to the next level, your players have to be better than the players everyone else is getting. This class will keep us in the top 3 in the ACC... but man... this is a disappointing class. I'm not disappointed with the guys we signed. They're tigers now and I'll support them for life...

But man... this hurts losing out on so many big names... It feels even worse seeing that we've been leading for so many big names just to have the SEC cherry pick them from us at the last minute...

That must've been one hell of an official visit. From 90% to this is definitely a kick in the nuts. I know we'll still field a good team and I'm thankful for all the recruits that see Clemson the way we do, as a truly special place, but this one definitely hurts.
