Fentrell Cypress II

Read in the post regarding our initiative in the portal. This is a CB leaving Virginia and Tony Bennet, and he’s the #1 overall player in the entire transfer portal right now. One prediction has him to Ohio St. Having another elite corner with Wiggins (and other young ones) coming up, it could end up being a main reason we return to the playoff. Just look at how much Nate Wiggins individually affected the ACC Championship game.

Is he a basketball player or a football player?***

Since he is from Rock Hill and played at Northwestern High maybe Coach Kyle Richardson can reach out to him.

I was curious to know if we offered him when he was coming out of Northwestern. It doesn't appear we did! Per 247 he was a composite .85; which means he was a composite high 3-star!

DJ Turner will be one of the 1st players drafted and had a similar grade.

Yes we offered him and he visited a couple of times before committing to Michigan.

I'm not sure I'd want him. He's a DB that played in 16 games over 3 years, that means he was a backup who couldn't make the starting line up. He has 0 passes defended, yet a total of 59 tackles (solo/assisted combined) which says to me he was tackling after the catch instead of preventing it. I don't believe he could crack our starting lineup and he's most likely leaving for a chance to start somewhere else. Virginia's pass defense was worse than ours, why would we want someone who didn't start for them?

Also, he's not the #1 overall in the transfer portal, he's #17 overall and the 3rd DB listed.

Good thing you aren’t recruiting coordinator. 13 PDs. He’s leaving because he wants to play for a team that can help get him to the next level. Based on your games started theory…a guy like Isaiah Simmons in the 2nd half of his Clemson career wouldn’t have been a guy you wanted because he was not an instant impact guy when he stepped on campus. Also I think some people think any top Transfer is going to choose Clemson automatically upon an offer…that isn’t the case. If he can help the depth of the CBs and get good recommendation from Elliott…why not go after him.

****UVA doesn't have the pass rush Clemson can put on the field.

He has 13 - PD.

If a CB is doing a good job they actually don't get to defend as many passes(we all know that right)? Because the QB goes; "can't throw it there he's blanketed"!

The biggest thing Cypress has is "experience"!

He's a kid that could fit into the Clemson culture from everything I have heard about him around Rock Hill.
6'0 is good size for a CB.

And then there is the below: I can't stand Ohio State; but they do not target dudes at skill positions that can't play.
Not when you can have just about any player you want.

I thinking adding an elite corner is something we need. Still a young group even next year, but yes they do look extremely more experienced now.
