Everybody has heard the phrase, "If you can make in New York you can make it anywhere.", but have you heard, "If you can't make it into Clemson you can't make it into anywhere." Can anyone name a recruit that has not made it into Clemson since abo became head coach? I honestly can't think of one.
They have 2 prep guy in their coming class. Lawson and tankersly I think

Lets see in 2012 Cordrea Tankersley and Shaq Lawson didn't qualify, went to prep and signed again in 2013 so there's two more
I've had that argument with Tater fans forever. They claim they have a higher admission requirement for athletes than we do. There s no evidence to support that and a lot of evidence that proves it wrong. When athletes don't get into Clemson, they don't go to other D-1 schools because they can't get in there either. It's always because they didn't meet the minimum NCAA requirements, not Clemson requirements. Cordrea Tankersley is a good example. He didn't get into Clemson last year, went to prep for one year and is expecting to be admitted this year if he takes the SAT again and scores 1 point better. If Clemson has such high requirements, how can an athlete just barely qualify by NCAA requirements and still get into a school that ha such high requirements. I could list several situations that are exactly the same as this one. They love to bring up the Dwight Jones/Jo Jo Cox story from years ago but Clemson quickly changed their rules after those athletes got into another school to make sure they could take any athlete that qualified by NCAA requirements.
going to be interesting to watch mike williams situation at taterville. if they get him eligible it will be because they compromised many standards. i dont think he has sat or act scores high enough to get in anywhere. stay tuned!!
I guess those high entrance requirements are how they could get Wm Perry and his brothjer in school and keep them eligible for 4 yrs. The old saying about Clemson goes like this. If you are a good athlete and drive your car thru Clemson art less than 25 mph you'll porobably leave time with a couple of diplomas in your back seat. Those inbreeds from NW SC are totally delusional.
Exactly, when you hear them say, we didn't want him because he couldn't get into Clemson, that is complete BS. Not only athletes but their entire admissions system is a joke. They keep their SAT scores up for incoming freshmen by using a bridge program at a tech school up there. Every kid I know that wanted to get into Clemson got in by going to that program and it didn't matter what their academics were like in HS or what their SAT score was.
