What changed between 2019 and 2020 class recruiting?

Combine last year’s numbers with this year’s recruit average, we could have signed 15 five stars. Why a different focus between last year’s full load and this year’s stellar class?

Few things... UGA beat us on a few last year. Combine that with the overall talent of the class in the region down a year ago and it happens. Why my pulse took a hit pointing out last years class was a depth class and not overall great. Got a lot of Dabo knows best last year from the same people touting Stars this year. You don’t need 5 stars every year as depth is good, however, I wish we would have pocketed a few of those schollies as we are a deep team next year and everyone knew 2020 was loaded.

Yes, stars don’t matter when it’s lower star signees but then why get excited for a class of five stars if stars don’t matter? Do people not see how ridiculous they are playing it both ways like that?

Smaller class so we focused more time on higher targets?

Class size has very little to do with it. The talent was simply not there in our traditional recruiting areas last year and for whatever reason we missed on several guys. We also won a second near term natty which changed how recruits look at Clemson

Lol, man Dabo has us all fooled!! I honestly believe it was setup tht way by Dabo...he knew he was getting 10 five stars this year, he need a 3 and 4 star foundation, then here come the studs, 2018 studs, 2019 class, 2020 studs..see the Dabo effect??

We won a second national title and had 4 guys drafted the first two rounds of the NFL Draft


That Clemson's recruiting can be questioned in any way

There were a few factors

Our roster balance had gotten a little off leading to a couple of tiny recruiting classes in 2017 and 2018 and then 2019 needed to be huge- close to 30. That meant the staff could not be as selective as normal.

We also got beat by other schools for quite a few guys. I think we whiffed on at least our top 4 OL targets. I think one stayed up north and went to MSU, maybe a couple to UGA, etc. We missed on 5* DE Pickens right down the road that went to SC. It happens.

And, as somebody already mentioned, it wasn't a good year for premium talent in our normal recruiting footprint.

We are really outgrowing that recruiting footprint right now and going national. We've also become a very desirable destination for WRs, QBs, and DLs and we seem to finally ne shaking off the OL and RB stigma this year as well.

These guys saw this team play this fall with T. Lawrence at QB....they know what’s coming.
The 19 recruits, although knowing he was committed....did not see the full picture yet.
Also, people probably figured we were due for a ‘down’ year to cycle out or whatever. That doesn’t seem to be the case.


I believe much like Fuller and team back in the 70's

These guys got together and wanted to be something special. They drew a line and made a decision
