Bates following Venables to OU is a massive loss for Clemson. He's been a huge part of the success of that defense and on the recruiting trail. This guy is climbing the ladder fast.

yeah on him recruiting. You look at their recruiting classes and they did amazingly well at DL, QB, WR and RB. Top 10 in the nation recruits. Now, OL or LB? Not so good.
 
can the case be made that OU's staff next year will be top to bottom BETTER than it was this year?

Spoke to a former equipment guy at Clemson still connected to program claims Bates wasn't as good of a recruiter as people are claiming. Doesn't think it's that big a loss.

Venables leaving was the big issue he was a great recruiter as well as DC.


Look above @Zombie-Cane


This DL coach that retired after 2016 season was better coach than Bates:

I had a bad case of loser denial once, until the football team stuck a parking cone up my ***

He was a DL at Bama. His career really took off when he was at Jacksonville State, and then got the offer for Clemson after. Dude really knows his stuff.

Not so fast....recruiter of the year in '19?

Brooks was loved by the Clemson cucks around here, but Bates made it easy to forget him. There's a reason Clemson paid hum $715k as a DL coach.
