Question-Who is the highest profile prospect Clemson has a chance to sign this year? Britt

Answer-There are several great prospects that list the Tigers among their favorites like Fred Rouse, Duke Robinson, Justin Mincey, Rex Sharpe, etc. However, I think the Tigers will have to have a huge season to get one of those prospects. We think their best bet would be in players like C.J. Byrd, Carlos Thomas, Jamie Robinson and James Davis. Don't forget that Renderick Taylor is a highly ranked prospect by some national services.


Question-Is the in-state recruiting battle over? Has Clemson re-established itself as the school in the state once again? Tony

Answer-It is very early but on my radio show I said that last year's finish would have a bigger impact on the Class of 2005 than last year's class. We have interviewed most of the top 25 players in the state and Clemson looks like they are in the top three with all but three or four of those type players. The Tigers have not offered all of the the state's top 25 but they are in the top three with almost all of them. USC, on the other hand, is not in the top three with several of the top 25 at this time. That is understandable considering how the Gamecocks ended their season. Clemson seemed to have more success in their camps with top in-state players also. With that said, the most important aspect in this situation is that it is very early. If the Tigers fail early and USC gets off to a great start then prospects will take notice.


Question-How many more offensive linemen will my Tigers sign? Ed in Pendleton, SC

Answer-In our offensive line analysis which you can find on our front page, we said the Tigers will sign four or five linemen in the upcoming class. Humphries and Ruffin are in the fold. We think Grant and Austin could follow in the next few weeks. If that is the case, look for the staff to continue to recruit the top tier offensive linemen like Duke Robinson. The staff would not turn down a great one if they could get a commitment.
