Question: What are the most common negatives rival coaches use when recruiting against Clemson?

Answer: Sorry, I am 13 minutes late. I was on the phone trying to confrim some recruiting inforamtion. Hope everyone is well. Can onyone in this chat room shoot free throws? Rivals coaches have less ammunition now than before because of facilities. Some will use rural setting, some will use lack of African-American population base, etc. But much less now than before.

Question: As for Whitehead, is Dabo still pushing for him at all?

Answer: No. He is bought and paid for.

Question: I've heard that CJ Spiller has been talking alot with Ricky Sapp. Any chance CJ could be the suprise of the class and join the Tigers?

Answer: I doubt it I have always thought it is FSU

Question: You've got to think Dabo is working hard to convince CJ to look at the difference in depth charts at FSU and Clemson. Behind FSU, are we his #2 in your opinion?

Answer: Yes and yes.

Question: Mickey or Trey?

Answer: Mickey

Question: Will we ultimately get Godfrey? I just don't see him going to Wake when he's got an offer from Clemson.

Answer: He is a great kid and terrific player but Wake has done a great job on him. However, he liked his visit and his mom loved it. Clemson has a chance.

Question: Are Sims and Jenije a package deal wherever they go? Chances they end up here?

Answer: Not really but I think they end up at FSU

Question: % chance of landing Grant?

Answer: 50

Question: West End Zone--will there be an additional 1K seats in phase 2?

Answer: I am not sure. I asked Billy D to be on the show in the next few weeks and he said anytime. We will have him on after signing day

Question: How can FSU continue to sign numerous HS AA tailbacks? Do the recruits not comprehend the depth chart?

Answer: FSU plays true freshmen as much as anyone in the last ten years. They have been such a great program for so long it is all these kids know anymore.

Question: with 18 scholarships available (right now) it seems that we are almost done....who remains on the board we want most? any commits wavering?

Answer: Every commitment from here on out is an over sign. Clemson is waiting on one RB, Godfrey, Prince, Alexander, Stevens and Jenije

Question: who are our prospects at de if we miss out on prince?

Answer: I am not sure they will sign one.

Question: Do think Alexander will commit to us?..How about Rodney Prince?

Answer: I think Alexander is a slight Clemson lean. Prince is such a great kid, I am not sure he can go back on his word and back out on MSU

Question: Littleberry?

Answer: No decision yet. He is on the thinnest of ice sheets right now. I think he may be done.

Question: how many of sc commitments would clemson offer?

Answer: Clemson offered Anderson, Prochak.

Question: bought and paid for? explain

Answer: How do you get a player of that caliber out of Alabama?

Question: What's Geathers's story?

Answer: He still has not released his transcripts. He will not sign on signing day. But his father did call Clemson the other day to gauge their interest.

Question: Do you think Alexander commits tonight?

Answer: Maybe. Not sure if it happens tonight or not but could.

Question: what happened woth peanut to make him feel "uncomofortable" with Clemson?

Answer: Auburn and Alabama

Question: based on the possible losses at bandit, who are we looking at now to back up Gaines? who plays the other end position?

Answer: Vincent is the back up with Sapp comming. Merling starts at the other end with Cannon backing up

Question: Your prediction for starters at CB next year by the fifth game?

Answer: I can see a scenario with any of the guys including Coleman, Lewis, Gilliam, Chancellor, Ray Ray, Butler or Maxwell. These guys are very talented but inexperienced. It depends on their off-season and their development.

Question: dekoda watson - why no interest from clemson?

Answer: They thought he was a 'tweener.

Question: Is he bought yet or are still in the bidding process?

Answer: LOL. I think its Auburn

Question: What is the situation with Wilkerson? I thought he was in good shape academically.

Answer: He has not come up on his test. He needs to improve his test score and it has been raised

Question: does wilkerson make it in? if not do we push for both alexander and stevens?

Answer: Not sure of how this scenario will play out

Question: I think most kids like a little nightlife...other than visiting current players at their apartments/homes, do these kids attend parties? go out to any clubs? .If this is too touchy a subject don't answer.

Answer: Yeah they have a few parties I am sure.

Question: Your thoughts on Caleb King in 2007? Chances on Clemson getting him?

Answer: He is suppossed to be one of the top running backs in the country next season. I would expect Clemson, Auburn and Georgia to be in the mix

Question: Any chance Vincent moves back to LB? Doesn't seem to be a natural DE to me.

Answer: He is not a Bandit by nature. If they really liked Sapp enough he could eventually move back to LB

Question: Akeem Robinson to DE in the Spring?

Answer: Not sure. I think he will be a good TE. I am not sure he has the instincts to play defense

Question: How many Clemson commits did usc offer?

Answer: 2

Question: Did Will Korn's presence help much this weekend?

Answer: It did not hurt. I think things went well with him but I have not talked to him since last Sunday

Question: I know we only have 3 slots left. But, which guys would we oversign? Jenije, etc.?

Answer: They are already over. They would take one RB, Godfrey, Prince, Alexander, Stevens and Jenije

Question: % chance that we get ONE of the Spiller, Sims, Grant trio? In other words, what's the chance we'll get a second RB in this class? Thanks for the work you do.

Answer: 66

Question: Does Sims really think he can play RB at FSU?

Answer: Yeah

Question: Any "potential" surprise out there beyond projecting these last three (Alexander, Godfrey, Grant)?

Answer: No

Question: Which Clemson commits did usc offer?

Answer: Jo Jo Cox, Medlin, Sapp, Butler, Maxwell, Gaither. Not sure on Ogren, Johnson.

Question: ANy more info of Hines's Job change and possible replacements?

Answer: Things are very quiet. The staff does not talk about among each other. I think there is a better chance than not that he is gone. replacements depends on if Bowden or Spence makes the hire

Question: Why would any questioner think a kid could play rb for us but not FSU?

Question: DO you think Kornblut fabricates offers that USC commits passed on?

Question: What happened regarding wr recruit who changed his mind and is going to Michigan State?

Answer: TJ Williams got in a little trouble at prep school. Nothing major.

Question: Why would a rb want to run behind FSU's poor OL rather than our very good and very deep OL?
