Why was there such a delay in Stanley Hunter’s announcement, if he knew he was going to Clemson all along?
Every prospect has right to make their decision at the time of their choosing. Hunter was pretty much a given to Clemson all along. Some may have believed he was wavering at one point, but we never got that feeling. He leads a defense that gets overshadowed by a high powered offense. The staff has seen in person multiple times, and we feel confident in their evaluation.
Is the drama of making announcements getting out of hand?
Without question, YES. The players are just making it harder on themselves. When players used to make traditional announcements, the de-recruitment process was hard enough on them. Now, players are really hyping themselves, and the realization just hits harder in August. Players talk about how close they are to all of the recruiters that are after them, if what they say is true, then it is awfully disrespectful to that coach and school to pick up a hat and throw it down, just to reveal another school.
How does Oral Roberts match up with Clemson?
The Golden Eagles have a talented pitching staff. They silenced the bats of Arkansas and Oklahoma State. Clemson’s pitching staff will be a big key this weekend. If Berken, Faris, and possibly Cribb give quality starts, then Clemson should be okay. Oral Roberts is a gritty team that will give the Tigers a battle. Any team that has won 31 of 34 certainly is dangerous, because they are playing with a lot of confidence.
