From the Clemson 247 page (UF wasn't mentioned) here's how many offers several other schools have put out for 2020:

  • Clemson has unofficially offered 99 players in the 2020 class. LSU has offered over 300. Alabama, Florida State, Georgia have all offered around 250. Ohio State: 200. Notre Dame: 160. Stanford: 63.
  • Clemson has not accepted any verbals for 2021 yet.

Here's an article on Clemson's mega-recruiting budget:

We examined Clemson football's robust recruiting budget. This is what we found

We examined Clemson football's robust recruiting budget. This is what we found

Big spenders
► In the 2009-10 academic year, which included Dabo Swinney's first full season as head coach, Clemson spent $292,595 on recruiting. Last year, Clemson spent $2.9 million.

► Last year, Clemson spent $1.9 million just on recruiting travel, including $1.4 million on use of the university aircraft, $126,298 on charter fights and $37,280 for commercial airfare.

► Recruiting spending exceeded $1 million for the first time in 2015-16. That year, Clemson bought a second aircraft for athletic use.

► From 2006 to 2012, 42 percent of Clemson’s signees were from South Carolina. Through the past eight recruiting cycles, that percentage dropped to 24. Since 2017, merely 15 percent of Clemson recruits have been South Carolinians.

► Clemson’s only 2020 commitments from South Carolina are Demonte Capehart, a defensive lineman from Hartsville, and Tyler Venables, a safety from Clemson who is the son of defensive coordinator Brent Venables.

It takes a village
► Aside from the coaches, Clemson's recruiting is commanded by four full-time staff members: director of recruiting and external affairs Thad Turnipseed, director of recruiting operations Jordan Sorrells, director of on-campus recruiting Tyler Clements and director of recruiting graphic design Joe Robbins.

► Last year, Clemson spent $684,690 on compensation for these full-time salaried personnel, some student workers and temporary staff. Outside of travel and compensation, Clemson spent $344,400 on recruiting operations, including $74,660 in printing and binding services and $16,595 for postage. That includes letters, offers and creative images the program may send a prospect.

► That operations expense is more than Clemson's total recruiting expense in 2009, $321,591. Clemson spent less than $400,000 each year from 2006 and 2010. During that span, Clemson cracked the Top 10 of the ESPN recruiting rankings only once.

► In 2017-18, Clemson spent $1.79 million on football recruiting, $1 million more than it spent for recruiting in all other sports combined.

Looks like Clemson is setting itself up to be the mid/late 90s Tennessee. If my memory is correct, they used to have one of the largest recruiting budgets because they were always out raiding other states to make up for a relative lack of in state talent. Once Dabo leaves, Clemson better hope they hire well. As Tennessee showed, it doesn’t take long to crash and burn but takes forever to recover (if they ever do).

Are we still going to win the way Clemson does?

RE: Recruiting budget. The NCAA should mandate the recruiting budget to be the same amount for all P5 schools. As a matter of fact, all P5 schools should pay the same percentage of revenue into a recruiting pool, say 15% of revenue, and then the money is divided equally among the schools. No other funds or alumni provided incentives could be used for recruiting.

why? and why do you think it would be legal?

we aren't have nots. we just act like have nots. the only reason we're looking up at the central Florida, south Florida Missouri and Memphises of the world is because we choose to.

all the while fully was paying himself 1.5 million a year and stuffing 30 million in the mattresses per year.
