Clemson beats the Crimson out of Tide for Beasley

Remember when we told you that Clemson was starting to kick around the might SEC in recruiting?

It happened again this past week, when the Tigers outlasted favored Alabama to claim touted athlete Victor Beasley of Adairsville, Ga.

Beasley, who is considered capable of playing TE, LB or slot receiver for Clemson, was believed to be almost an Alabama lock until recently. He changed all that, though, at a Friday morning news conference.

So why Clemson?

"It felt like home to me," Beasley said, churning out perhaps the hottest cliché of this recruiting season. “It was great to get to know the coaches at Clemson. They were very honest. And it's the loudest stadium in the country. I can't wait to play there.”

Beasley is 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, with a remarkable 4.51 40-yard dash. He also had offers from Auburn, Duke, East Carolina, Louisville and Stanford, among others.
It was another kick in the SEC’s recruiting face by Clemson, which landed its 17th commitment.

The Clem$on boo$ters must be in full effect since their head coach won't be around very long.

This young man had Alabama on his list but I believe if you check Saben hadn't offered him a ride. Do wish the best for Dabo but Clemson beating the SEC (particularly Alabama)in football is still a joke!
