I know there's a ways to go until the 2022 classes get the bows on top, but I'll take the time anyways to show where Clemson stands against the rest of the national powers in terms of number of offers sent out, as the vast majority are in the mail by now.
ND is included with the ACC for conference numbers, and I only looked at P5 schools. Whenever WR is shown, that includes TEs as well.
Average Number of Offers Sent by a P5 School 222
Average Number of Offers per School by Conference ACC - 218 Big 10 - 215 Big 12 - 207 PAC 12 - 189 SEC - 274
School With Highest Number of Offers Sent by Conference ACC - Georgia Tech - 339 Big 10 - Nebraska - 371 Big 12 - Kansas - 420 PAC 12 - Arizona St - 438 SEC - Tennessee - 464
School With Fewest Number of Offers Sent by Conference ACC - Clemson - 69 Big 10 - NW - 87 Big 12 - Texas Tech - 108 PAC 12 - UCLA - 70 SEC - Mizzou - 169
Those rankings and average scores WILL change a good bit, but the number of offers shouldn't. Some surprising stuff to be sure, but it's kinda cool to be the 9th ranked class with the 3rd highest average recruiting rating despite sending out the fewest offers. A whopping 17 teams sent out over 300 offers, but only two are top 10 classes, and only one barely made it to the top 10 average. Just goes to show, quantity is certainly not everything.
Arizona State sent more offers to offensive linemen (107) than nine schools did to all positions COMBINED. That's the most at any position group by any school!
There are 18 instances by 11 schools of more offers sent at a single position than the total offers from Clemson, meaning 70 or more.
Tennessee, with the most offers sent at 464, offered more WRs (86), OL (75), DL (87), and DBs (84) than Clemson did total players (69).
When you get a Clemson offer, that MEANS something. And I love that we get kids that buy into that, evidenced by the rankings and our success of the last decade.
It would seem like Mack's going the Dabo route, but it's working for him. Their classes since he took over have been very, very good by their standards. Low offers, modest class size, but plenty of high caliber talent with plenty of 4* and a couple 5*.
As for other small-offer schools, I knew about Stanford (they were the only ones to send less than us the last time I did this) and Northwestern, but the most famous is Rice. Didn't show them since they're not P5, but they've sent out a whopping 31 offers!
