Tony has said this kid had no interest in visiting us. What does everyone think the reason clemson is able to get kids like lawson, mont. adams, vernon hargraves, and alot of these 5 star kids from out of state to visit them year after year and we have dominated clemson the past four years and cannot get a sniff from these kids.
Good question... Nevwr seen a good answer. Maybe we need 18 years of coaching stability instead of 8.

Gotta either be better/relentless recruiters/salesmen, cheating, or individual perspective of each program's status. As long as we're signing top 15 classes, and winning games, I couldn't care less though.
Great question, I can't believe this has never been asked before...........
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
or a combo of all 3.
their HBC is a very active recruiter and a dishonest salesman. Our's isn't. I wouldn't trade our's for there's any day of the week, tho.
This is definitely a big part of it.

Any 5 star that visits Clemson gets a ho.
I'd say they have a good bit of diva in them and playing at Clemson just seems easier (less work). I'd also have to say they are probably pretty gullible.
I will guess that he has a bagman. I don't have any evidence to back that up. However, there is evidence that Montravious Adams has a bagman. When 247 Rumors first started, a moderator started a thread that Adams would go to the school that his "mentor" chose. Of course his top schools were Clemson and Auburn.
Very interesting. Didn't know that.
No one kisses ass like Dabo. He tells any high level recruit what they want to hear and even went as far to hand out scholarships to friends of the #1 recruit in the nation over the summer. He does anything to make the sale.
Eddy is exactly right.
Nobody will ever convince me that dabo is not dirty, at least on some level.
I think that Lawson is quickly taking Greg Bryant's place as most asked about person on the board, even though there is no possibility of him becoming a Gamecock. He basically told Mangus to take a hike when Mangus tried to talk to him. Devin Washington is going to be our end of the Future, and Darius English is the other. Lawson can go pound sand.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
And hopefully Mr. Hand.
the kind of kids who believe Dabo vs. the kind of kids and adults that are with them that can see through his BS.... like Robert's mom - she steered him clear of that mess
They promise the world to get a select few who love promises
You nailed it with cheating.
And if they're Klempsin's kind of 5 star recruits, there's a suitcase full of cash to go along with the whores.
Then why have we been kicking their ass in state? It doesn't make sense to me, why they would get so many 5 star kids in florida unless their was something funny going on. But if there were it seems like it would have come out by now.

Ya would think a player the caliber of a Lawson would want to visit Carolina,just because of the possiblty of playing with Clowney! But I honestly think that Carolina just doesnt go by the star system and just knows what players fit what they are looking for! I can admit I was hoping for a better recruiting class on paper then what we have,but I guess we have to trust our coaches! I would love to have a class full of 5 stars and 4 stars,but we dont, I believe this is a class where they have a great group of Offensive Lineman,and if ya are goin to win in the SEC ya got to have that! And also a good group of Linebackers,even though I am hoping we get a couple more! Spurrier and his staff know what they want! We just have to trust them! I hear Adams is a great recruiter maybe he can get involved with more of those players!
