Question-I heard you say on your radio show that Clemson has changed its recruiting responsibilities in North Carolina. Is this true? Why the change?
Answer-Last season Mike O'Cain was responsible for the entire state. This is a very big state both geographically and in the quantity of prospects. Bowden and Blackwell felt it would be best to have more coaches cover the state. This season three coaches will work the state of North Carolina. O'Cain still has a lot of ties there but Burton Burns will be able to help especially in Charlotte which about two hours from campus. Three coaches will cover the state more efficiently.
Question-Will your buddy Rick Stockstill make a difference for the Gamecocks?
Answer-On the field Stockstill have the wide outs playing better. The USC wide outs have dropped so many balls in the past two seasons. They will perform better with Stockstill as a coach. In recruiting, Stockstill's relationships with high school coaches in he state will help.
Question-How many running backs will Clemson sign in February?
Answer-Two or three. It depends on if they can play other positions. The Tigers lose only one tailback next season, Yusef Kelly. Tony Nelson has committed and the staff will take at least one more. They would like to sign one superstar like James Davis. The staff will go on an extensive search for a national recruit like Davis. In the state, they could also take one of the very talented group. So two or three is what we expect at running back in February.
