Clemson assistant named recruiter of year
|Thursday, February 6, 2020, 1:04 PM-|
Clemson's new recruiting director Todd Bates was named the nation's recruiter of the year by Rivals on Thursday.
Clemson ranked No. 2 in Rivals' 2020 rankings, which was its highest-ranking in that site's history.
247Sports rated Bates as the No. 2 recruiter nationally behind Ohio State's Brian Hartline in its metric.
Bates joined Clemson's staff from Jacksonville State (Al.) in 2017 after Dan Brooks retired. He was a three-year letterman at Alabama as a defensive end and a permanent co-captain for the 2004 season.
