Pinky swear, relationships help Tigers land Alabama recruit with "freakish ball skills"

To get a top-ranked recruit out of the state Alabama, a coaching staff has to go above and beyond. A pinky swear and the ability to develop relationships is what helped Clemson land Justyn Ross.

Scholarship numbers: 25 is the goal, but coaches make sure Clemson offer means something

The Clemson coaching staff believes it will sign 25 players or more in the 2019 recruiting cycle, but they won’t take just any player despite the large class size. They are still looking for the right fit as a player and a person. Why? Because a Clemson offer should mean something.

Clemson's 2018 recruiting class: Cycling out? No. Ridiculous? Yes.

In the words of today’s youth, Clemson’s 2018 recruiting class is “ridiculous.” I would call it historic. The urban dictionary says “ridiculous” in today’s jargon means something that is memorable or something that is at the top level of greatness.

Tuesday afternoon update on 5-star Justyn Ross
The decision between Clemson and Alabama is down to the wire for 5-star Phenix City (AL) Central 5-star wide receiver Justyn Ross. The general consensus is that the battle for Ross’ services – who has a top three of Bama, Clemson, and Auburn – is down to the Crimson Tide and the ACC Tigers. Ross will announce in a ceremony at his school. The announcement will be broadcast during the 1 p.m. hour on ESPN2.

National Signing Day Primer: Where will the final targets end up?
National Signing Day, the February edition, kicks off early Wednesday morning as the remaining recruits from across the country make their final decisions. That includes a group of six prospects that we are watching. Will Clemson get all six? Of course not. Will Clemson get shut out in tomorrow’s proceedings? I doubt it.
