Adam Humphries, a 5'11 176lb (4.55 40') WR/S from Dorman High in Spartanburg, committed to Clemson after receiving his offer on an unofficial visit to campus last week. He was recruited by Jeff Scott, who has the Spartanburg-Gaffney-Rock Hill upstate area for us in recruiting.
Clemson coaches think he's another Tyler Grisham, who I thought was a good tough player, but I would not have offered this guy. His only other offer as of now is Wofford. I have seen Humphries play, several times in all and twice last year. I do not think he's even the 2nd best WR on Dorman's team. I didn't recognize him as a good DB either. Nothing he did impressed me. Jeff Scott needs to have his damn head examined, but remember the entire offensive staff now sees a player before he's offered.
This offer isnt even going to bring us Charone Peake, as he's had us as his leader for quite some time. I thought we were in good standing with other top recruits Quan Bray and Tacoi Sumler (though we have cooled some on Sumler) and we had a chance with some others. We all know that WR is a key position this year in recruiting, so why bring in someone who doesn't have the talent to compete?
If Clemson wants to compete with the big boys, then we have to recruit the next-level athletes. Bringing in one of these types every year keeps us from building that talented depth we've lacked.
I don't get this one.
