This is why I believe our football program is so up and down, we were always in the mindset you gotta win your state, which I agree to an extent. But it doesn't matter if you win your state recruiting when your state doesn't have a deep talent pool year end and year out..we arent FL or Texas....so we go as our high school talent goes. We haven't been able to rely on consistently going in other states grabbing their top players. Clemson realized in 2013 they can't beat Spurrier just relying heavily on this states talent. I believe this is when they started focusing their recruiting elsewhere and not making this state a top priority for them because lack of talent depth...I just don't think we can sit back and rely on or wait for our HS talent to have that depth it had In talent from 2010-2014 again. I don't know how Clemson does it ( well, we do actually 🤑) but until we are able to recruit top kids in other states then we will be up an down and go as our HS talent pool goes
