And, just think, Big Dex in 2016 was a "Consolation Prize",

because of Rashan Gary's recruiting shennanigans.

I wouldn't change that set of circumstances one bit.

That years loss turned into a big win for sure. It's amazing how many times our back up choice turns out to be the better choice!!

I remember Mike Williams was a similar situation.

Can't remember the WR who we "missed on."

Yeah, Mike told us not to worry, that he had us covered when he committed. Sho nuff the truth right there.

was basically never heard from again.

We were the winners there for sure!

More times than not, guys who screw around with the integrity of the “verbal commitment” process turn out to be guys you did not need to begin with.

There are many examples.

Not really BIG dex had committed way before R.Gary committed to Mich. Gary would have been a Cherry on top. He committed on National signing day.

Nearly all the attention was on Gary from Clemson people.

Dexter's commitment was not talked about NEARLY as much as Gary's not commitment.

I remember doing my "complain-about-the-fans" thing and being a complainer about it. If Tigernet had a decent search function I would prove it. :)

True I do remember there being a lot of attention on Gary. I never understood why when Dex was such a massive human that could move. But I just remembered getting Dex earlier and then trying to land Gary on top of that. I don’t recall getting Dex as a consolation prize because we missed on Gary.

Thanks, this shut the blowhards up who are crying about our 3 Star recruits. Football is not Stars coming in, it is about Stars going out and how many games that are won.

I wasn't trying to shut anyone up. Just presenting data.***
