It's that dreaded time of year again during the College Football season where we have a few weeks before we can see a real College Football game again.... For now, the coaches are on the road recruiting during the home stretch of this recruiting cycle. December is widely considered to be a critical time for coaches when it comes to recruiting. Still have a few targets left for the class that will sign in February....
Dabo and Co.'s #1 remaining target is set to announce his decision of either Clemson or Georgia on Friday. Right now, its kind of hard to figure out the indications of where he will possibly announce. There have been a lot of talk recently that Huggins could be a Clemson lean but I'm not so sold on that. Albert Huggins grew up a Georgia fan and his father wants to see him play in the SEC. This is a hotly contested recruiting battle between Dabo Swinney and Mark Richt for the state of South Carolina's top D-Line prospect. Right now, it could go either way.
While this puts a damper on our hopes for beating Oklahoma in Orlando, this is probably the right move for DW4...Better to get him ahead of schedule than play him in a meaningless bowl game... I would've loved to see him play against Oklahoma but its better to get him rehabbing sooner rather than later.
One of the top receivers in South Carolina has Clemson at the top of his list.. If Dabo and Co. can beat Spurrier and the Chickens for this intriguing prospect, it would be huge in restocking receivers in next year's class for WRU.
An ACC related link... Found the ideas proposed in this articles to help the ACC gain more respect and credibility quite interesting...I absolutely agree that if Miami becomes a prominent program again then it would increase the credibility of the ACC considerably. They have the talent but not the coaching to do so... I think the ACC as a conference upgraded and took a step forward this year with the addition of Louisville as replacement when the Terps thought they were too cool for the ACC.
Grady Jarrett, Stephone Anthony, and Vic Beasley were not surprise selections and were expected to make this. It was quite a pleasant surprise to see Garry Peters named to the Coaches All-ACC first team... Garry deserved it with his strong play this year after an injury-riddled year last year and his suspension during the Georgia game. I hope to see NFL scouts pay attention to Peters during the Combine..With his strong play this year I feel he has warranted enough attention to possibly get drafted.
