Clemson Lands Top Wide Receiver Prospect

Clemson University’s football program scored a major coup this week when one of the nation’s Top Ten high school wide receivers – Florida’s Artavis Scott – announced his intention to leave the Sunshine State next fall and head for Tigertown.

Scott – a 5-foot-11, 179-pound wideout from Tarpon Springs, Florida – is a four-star prospect who had scholarship offers from all of the big Florida schools (Florida, Florida State, Miami and Central Florida). He was also recruited by Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and numerous other big-name programs from across the country.

And Clemson got him …

Scott caught 64 passes for nearly 1,000 yards and ten touchdowns as a junior. He also played running back, kick returner and defensive end for East Lake High School.

Props to head coach Dabo Swinney and his staff for landing another star wideout …

Clemson has had some of the nations’ best recruiting classes in recent years … a trend that looks like it’s going to continue into 2014.

First round NFL draft WR Hopkins says Hi.

He said Hi, right after he told Dabo, who criticized him, to kiss his @$$….

careful, just because he is drafted doesn’t mean he is that good. I am a gamecock and can tell you Troy Williamson hasn’t done much and in his draft he was the #7 overall pick (Hopkins was back at 27). Also the year before Hopkins the Gamecocks had two drafted even higher that would say hello Gilmore and Ingram (10th and 18th). Not sure but Gilmore could have a say on some of Hopkins production level.

Dateline: Gaffney, SC.

“Peak shats on USC East…….”

“After first putting on a USC cap indicating a commitment to the Gamecocks, Peak tossed it aside and replaced it with a Georgetown Hoya cap, much to the shock of the partisan Gamecock crowd in attendance. “I just figured Georgetown can get me to the next level and so I just happened to choose Georgetown,” Peak said. “They have a great history and I just thought why not join the history. South Carolina ain’t really got a history of great players and getting them to the NBA so I just happened to choose Georgetown.””

Wonder how long it is before Peak transfers back to Clemson, He sounds like he has the level of character that fits your university…

Frank Howard, the guy Rex Enright go the best of, it made u proud that Peak tossed the Gamecock hat to the floor. I can bet that you are one of the Clemsux fans I call 7-11 fans, one of those who stops by the 7-11 for a 6-pack on the way to a game and one on the way out. U have probably never been any place on the CU campus other than the sports facilities.. U have never done anything in life, but you vicariously enjoy the wins against the likes of the ACC weaklings and go around wearing that ugly orange shit and brag about it as if you completed a pass, caught a pass, intercepted one, made a block, or made a tackle, add infinitum. U might need to get a life? Did u know that Peak has never been to Georgetown but like you he believes a lot of bullshit about Georgetown as you do about the Tiggers. Get a life.

Is that the same Duke with whom USCjr has a lifetime series losing record?

Reply
oh my old bones..... July 3, 2013 at 12:05 pm

And exactly how long ago was it that we lost either of them? How about how long ago it was that we even played them? Hell Clemsux lost to Duke and Wake more recently than THE USC did. Keep on living back there in that past of yours tater.

Reply
CNSYD July 3, 2013 at 1:31 pm

So is that a yes or a no?

oh my old bones..... July 3, 2013 at 2:49 pm

its an actually answer the question there old timer instead of your typical round about BS. since we have been better than Duke and Wake for the last 30+ years but haven’t played them to even up or right the side of the series its not exactly comparing apples to apples is dumbass.. I mean according to your “living in the past” logic, Harvard, Princeton and Yale are better football schools than Clemson because way bay in 1920 those schools were winning more championships than Clemson. So is Princeton better than Clemson? What about Yale, or Harvard?

CNSYD July 3, 2013 at 7:14 pm

Tell me where that past/present line is. USC jr, aka Carl’s Jr, moves and twists it so much it is never in the same place.

oh my old bones July 4, 2013 at 8:46 pm

well you should answer it yourself. If Tigers want to bring up the lone championship in the past (33 years is almost twice the age of the incoming freshman players on the team, so yeah thats long in the past) then they are not better than Harvard, Yale, Princeton, or many others that have many more. If they want to say those title cant count they were too far in the past, its a sissy cop out but again so is the Tigers (see time pointed out earlier). I know Tigers dont want to use the present because the present says the Gamecocks just kicked your ass in the most recent game there is to go by, and therefor they are not better than than the Gamecocks. Im sure once again instead of answering the point you will come up with another off the wall remark, question, or someone says hello remark, so let me answer it for you. Yes some idiot at the WB stadium thinks putting a worthless ACC title from 1969 up , and no most gamecocks could care less about that piece of crap. To answer your next question you would try here, Carolina has won the exact same amount of worth titles that would mean something in the last 30 years that Clemsux has. Both are at zero. And finally George Rogers says hi. You might have just had your 1st first round draft pick in many years (carolina has had more recently FYI) but if you want to go somewhere you think Carolina has never been we also also have a hiesman and you dont. I wrote this fast and could care less about proof reading it so I have errors instead of poiting this out like a total loser that only does that when they know they are brought out, think about this. I know more about logic and deductive reasoning than you could ever learn, and in no way can you win this debate. So go ahead ignore it and point out some other BS instead as usual.

CNSYD July 5, 2013 at 8:09 am

So the bar is set at 2012. Is that correct? ANYTHING prior to 2012 in any sport is not applicable, correct?

oh my old bones July 5, 2013 at 5:25 pm

once again only if YOU want it to be, and if YOU do remember Harvard is better than Clemson based on total past titles.

oh my old bones July 5, 2013 at 5:31 pm

and I see where you are trying to go with this. Any sport? go ahead and try to discredit the baseball titles by claiming theye are int he past. if you do then you are conceed anything before 2012 doesnt count. then in that case clemson as a football (and baseball) program is carolina’s bitch right now. At least say perhaps go back as far as the last remaining player on a team. wait, In that case Clemson is still carolina’s bitch in both sports, and Carolina has two total national championships in the last 2 years to clemsons’, whats less than zero? You arent going to win this, yu might as well ignore it some more.

oh my old bones July 5, 2013 at 5:33 pm

If the player had an offer from an SEC school, but chose the ACC…it is an indication he is afraid of top-level competition. He may not have as much confidence in his abilities…..
Usually, going to the ACC, shows that the player would rather take the easy way out, instead of challenging himself, like a true soldier would…

I knew that Blind Hog would display his nuts…

One of the biggest indicators of a team quitting is the number of underclassmen declaring. LSU had 11. That team did not care vs Clemson.

But it was the biggest win in the last 30 years for Clemson…Very telling about the direction of Clemson football…

Can we be real? To be a pro prospect, you need catches. Connor Mitch is a pocket passer, pro style passer. He was recruited by many schools. He is the qb that pro careers are made from. He is at South Carolina, not Clemson. Poor choice to choose Clemson.
