Re: New Story: The scoop on Clemson's mid-year enrollees

I don't normally gush over player's character because frankly, I don't know any of these recruits personally. But the fact that you have this many guys enrolling early speaks to their level of commitment - both academically and athletically.
I also factor in pedigree as a good sign. Williams' dad played at FSU, Hyatt's uncle played at CU, Van Smith's dad is a football coach. Anyone that checks in on Tnet regularly knows the kind of guy we're getting with Chad Smith. Anyone that's watched Muse's highlights knows he's underrated; same for Chalmers. And I really respect Bell's conviction in choosing his school -- not a lot of 17 year olds are like that.
Very excited about this class and the culture that is being created by Dabo and the staff. Ultimately, it all comes down to wins and losses, but as a CU grad, I do take satisfaction in the way Dabo goes about his business and the players he attracts.
