What Scott's departure means for Clemson recruiting

The Clemson Insider reported Sunday evening that all signs pointed to Jeff Scott taking the head coaching job at South Florida to replace Charlie Strong, who was fired by the school on Dec. 1.

So, with Scott moving on, how does that impact the Tigers from a recruiting standpoint?

First of all, Scott was not only the wide receivers coach at Clemson in addition to his co-offensive coordinator duties, but he was also one of the best recruiters on the staff if not the Tigers’ top talent-getter. Scott has been recognized as one of the nation’s top 25 recruiters and the ACC Recruiter of the Year multiple times by various publications over the years.
