Dabo Swinney Signing Day Comments

Dabo Swinney calls the 2021 recruiting class the "most unique class." The Dandy Dozen. I will never forget them. That was Tajh Boyd and that whole crew.....But this is the Pandemic Posse."

Swinney: "We are going to sign 18 guys. We think maybe 12-13 will be mid-years (early enrollees)"

Only 18

Why was I thinking our target was 23 this cycle. Thought I read that in previous recruiting articles... Don't we need some more oline and backers? Wish we'd take a chance on that OT in Connecticut, originally from Ontario. We never offered but seemed like a really good culture fit.

Guess I'm confused. We have more good kids begging to come to Clemson, so what's the downside of filling out the class with maybes... Or is that not how it works. What would happen to the leftover schollys.

Really don't have room for project players

Thank you both. You're a gentleman and a scholar. That helps a lot. Exciting class and with all the early enrollment, hopefully we'll have a normal spring because I can see quite a few that could contribute right away.

Probably WAS, before players could play this year and not lose one...guess that's telling us several that could leave won't be....

Yep this is my take. Makes me think some folks that we’d really like to stay are going to***

Deer Crump,

Can you please add some sarcasm and snark to this thread?

DavidHood® was on fire yesterday and really had the press conference thread lighting up!

Swinney on Barrett Carter: "He has the ability to do a lot of things. He is a big man. Everyone wants to say he is a linebacker in the recruiting rankings and we just kind of laugh at that. He is not a guy you just put in a box. He could play LB but he could play either safety position."

You gotta love listening to Brent Venables talk about the recruits. The true Brent comes out in these conversations. He can be guarded in interviews with the media, but he's comfortable in this setting.

Venables says the DB Nate Wiggins "jumped at the opportunity" to join Clemson and flip from LSU.

Swinney on Will Taylor: "Our plan with him is to train him as a quarterback for a year and then move him to receiver. I think that is where his career ends up but I could be wrong....it will give us some peace at Qb. It might be 3 years from now but if we got in a bind he could play the position and we wouldn't have to start from scratch."

I've been watching it. Missed the first 10 minutes or so.

Any objective person watching this has to be unbelievably impressed with Dabo and the entire staff. What a great group of men, starting with Dabo, that he has surrounded himself with in this coaching room.

Just an aside, Grisham has done as good a job as any assistant coach in the country, considering the injuries he has had to coach around.

I've respected Dabo from the day he got the job as interim. (Didn't know much about him at that time. I won't go into details but the way he handled the transition - talking to Tommy and Bobby - was remarkable.)

Since then my respect for him has done nothing but grow.

It's easy to spot integrity and character if you don't look at a person with an inborn bias. (Just like it's easy to spot a sleazeball if you take an objective look.)

Any updates on zanders or did I miss that. Great news on both WR's.

What's the latest on Foster? Just wondering how he's getting along. ?? for a full and complete recovery.

We can certainly add a couple nice sprinkles but cherry on top for me would be seeing Justyn ballin out next fall.
