Beaux Collins was emerging as the new deep threat at the end of the season EJ Williams looks strong Dacari Collins was stepping up in Joe's absence Plus we got 2 strong WRs Antonio Williams and Adam Randall coming in
Roscoe was a five star-And I think he was the overall number one or number three Prospect per rivals -If I remember it was between him and the Williams kid Receiver who I believe went to Washington Huskies. Roscoe had it rough with injuries that his friends die in a car wreckHis freshman year. He was playing like a five star receiver his last few games and had the physical tools to be the best receiver ever at Clemson with His size and speed and hands.
Crosby was a 5 star for sure. There may have been some random services back then that had him as a 4 but I 100% remember him being a 5 star. I even want to say he may have been ranked as the #1 receiver in the country by at least one service but I may be wrong about that part.
he tore his throwing shoulder up... Qbs are usually not the same player after they do that. We never really got to see him play healthy except for a couple of snaps against sc state or so in his first games ever.
Re: Ngata was most definitely a 5 star when we got him

He wasn't considered a consensus 5 star though. He wasn't like Bellamy and Bowman. Those guys were supposed to be locks. I consider a 5 star where everyone has them 5 star. Like I said, some people didn't see Ngata that way at 247. I think it was just Rivals that had him that way.
Chris Garocki, Norris Brown, Chester McClockton, several others from Danny's rock star recruiting class of '88. Dexter Davis was my lab partner. Carr was a prima donna. He dressed like he was going clubbing when he graced us with his presence (rarely) at 12:30 lab. I don't even think he finished the fall semester of 88 at Clemson.
Glad I read through the whole post because this was who I was going to bring up. Dang he was horrible and hate to talk about a kid and it wasn’t his fault he was listed a 5 star but it did not take long to realize that was incorrect.
To me a bust is: -Somebody who didn't have significant injuries to hinder their play on the field -Nobody was "ahead of them" on the depth chart giving them adequate opportunity for play -The talent never showed on the field
I'd probably agree with: Hunter Johnson Ngata - he shows flashes, but not consistent Bowman
some commonly mislabeled as "busts" IMO -Willie Korn - after his shoulder injury he was never the same.....I think he was a 5star talent prior to.
-Mike Bellamy - he was absolutely electric when given PT and touches.....his head prevented him from sticking around.........he was a 5star talent though
-Chad Kelly - he was a 4star first of all......he was very talented, but had a crowded QB room. He did pretty decent at Ole Miss. I think his 4star rating was accurate.
-Roscoe Crosby - Talent wise he was great, but juggling baseball and personal issues hindered his football progress at Clemson.
-Tony Steward - once he was finally healthy from multiple ACL injuries he was good.
-stephone anthony - he took a little longer than most 5stars to make a significant impact, but once he did he lived up to billing.
