Did anyone catch the interview with Cooper Dawson where he was talking about his overall recruitment? He revealed some interesting tidbits the best of which came from his conversation with Coach Elliot (Clemson O coordinator) which said SU has the best DE's they faced all year. That's a pretty good compliment. Respect is building.

FYI - Cooper says he's a die hard Clemson fan, but chose SU because he wanted to play D. I still wonder if his offer from Clemson was actually commitable.

Coleman and Robinson may each be first day picks if they improve

Everything you've seen and heard about that kid, why would you think his offer wasn't committable?

It was 100% committable.

To play O-Line.
They didn’t want him for DE, which is where we want him to play.
And where HE wants to play.

Not unlike how we got Stritzinger over Michigan - we promised to give him a shot at RB (and did), where M and the others wanted him for Safety.

He saw the writing on the wall, and switched to S for us.

And made that HUGE INT in the CWB game.
:cool:

It was up until a week before signing day. They didn't send him an LOI.

Taking a page from the Rutgers ‘crootin’ playbook
(After it becomes clear you’re not getting said player) -

“Ah, we didn’t really want him anyway”

Would love to see that interview if someone can post

Clemson's offer was committable and when they were told he was signing with Syracuse they offered Fritzsche who also visited Syracuse but wasn't offered.
