Will we see a flurry of commitments towards the end of May like the last two years?
Not quite sure if there will be a flurry of commitments, but I would be a little surprised, if Clemson comes out of May with less than six verbal commitments. A couple guys could commit during the Nike camp, but we believe it will be a good summer for Clemson. The numbers will be very similar to the last couple of years, where Clemson went into the season with 8-10 verbal commitments.
Any idea who is going to replace Stephen Faris in the weekend rotation?
The most likely candidates are David Kopp and Ryan Hinson. Kopp pitched very in relief at Boston College last weekend. The coaching staff was very pleased with his performance, and he may be the most likely candidate at this time. Hinson’s name comes up, because he is clearly a future weekend starter, and he is a lefty. It would bring something different to the weekend rotation to start Hinson. Hinson has very good stuff, and he pitched very well in his only start of the year at South Carolina. Virginia Tech would be a good team for him to get his feet wet as a starter in the ACC.
Is there really something to Greg Little’s interest in Willy Korn?
At this time, one would have to believe so. The comments are coming straight from Little’s mouth, and they are not based on speculation. Little wants to play for a quarterback, who can get him the ball. He was very impressed with Korn, when the two met. Little is getting offered by everyone now, so this is way too early to tell, but Clemson will remain a factor. If Mike Paulus does not go to North Carolina, I believe that helps Clemson’s chances.
Will there be any attrition this off-season?
It does not appear anyone on campus at this time will be leaving on their doing. The summer is always a dangerous time, where a lot of college coaches hold their breath, and Clemson is no different. With 18-22 year old kids, things can and most the time will happen.
