Clemson lands a few big recruits
Clemson landed one of their biggest defensive targets, as they earned a commitment form four-star Barrett Carter. Carter is considered one of the best, if not the best, linebacker in the Class of 2021, and his recruitment was largely a battle between the ACC power and Georgia. Ohio State and Auburn were also considered fairly strong contenders for his services. Carter didn’t make a spectacle of his recruitment, as he had over 40 offers, and he publicly cut that list down only once, to eleven teams a few months ago.
Carter said each of the four serious contenders for his commitment were around the top of his list, but his pre-virus visit to Clemson was a major factor in his decision. This decision was a major victory and a pleasant surprise for Clemson, who, like many, believed the Georgia product was bound to stay in-state with the Bulldogs.
However, Carter wasn’t the only player Clemson stole from Georgia – they took from their baseball team as well. Bubba Chandler, a commit to the Bulldogs on the diamond with no prior FBS offers, received one from the Tigers. Without so much as an official campus visit, Chandler de-committed from Georgia, swinging to Clemson, where he will be playing both baseball and football. Although he may be a better prospect at shortstop or on the mound, Chandler had over 2500 all-purpose yards and 31 touchdowns as a high school senior, and he’s certainly an intriguing add for the Clemson team.
4-star S Josh Moore commits to Stanford
Clemson wasn’t the only team bringing in big recruits on the gridiron, as Stanford managed to swindle a commitment from Josh Moore, bringing the Georgia product coast-to-coast, as the four-star safety will be taking his talents to the Palo Alto. Staying in state didn’t seem to be a huge priority for Moore – Georgia Tech seemed like a potential contender for Moore’s service, but in-state powerhouse Georgia didn’t offer Moore. Stanford’s talent and great coach in David Shaw, even coming off a 4-8 season, enticed Moore to join the Cardinal’s secondary.
4-star OT Jonah Miller commits to Oregon
Barely a week after landing a big-time tackle in Bram Walden, the Ducks continues to add to the trenches in their 2021 class. Oregon also dipped into the state of Arizona’s talent to snare Jonah Miller. Miller was thought to be headed out of state, but Texas was considered his most likely destination. However, the Ducks, in their ongoing quest to strengthen their offensive line and running game, secured Miller’s commitment, taking him away from the Longhorns and into the Pac-12 in another big victory in the trenches for the Ducks.
