    I was at the beach showing a friend of mine his highlights in June while it rained 1 day and Monday turned into both of our DB man crush of the year.

    Clemson247 teased on Sunday evening that Clemson would be getting a notable running back prospect on campus this upcoming weekend on an official visit.

    Well, we can now tell you that running back is Lyn-J Dixon, a former Tennessee pledge.

    Dixon (5-10 1/2, 180) added an offer from the Tigers back in July before visiting for the All-In Cookout. The Butler (Ga.) Taylor County four-star product hasn't returned to Clemson since.

    But communication between Dixon and the Clemson staff, namely co-offensive coordinator/running backs coach Tony Elliott, has been rather consistent going back to the beginning months of last year.

    Dixon pledged to Tennessee on June 24, a week before nabbing his Clemson offer. He de-committed from the Vols on Oct. 14.

    Clemson values longstanding relationships, so the door is open for Dixon to pull the trigger on a commitment this weekend or shortly thereafter.

    I wrote previously that running backs Jashaun Corbin, Asa Martin, and Mychale Salahuddin are still interested in Clemson, especially Corbin. So the Tigers will have options to move on should Dixon not jump on board.

    But honestly, I don't forsee Clemson's pursuit of a running back in 2018 extending much more into the future.

    Would rather try and take Corbin over Dixon. Never been much of a Dixon fan.

    I like Corbin better too, but I like Dixon. Think he's in the mold of Ellington and McDowell, who both had great success here.

    It's been a long time since I've been this ready for a prospect to hit campus. In reality, I wonder how much we see if him next season. Bryant isn't the best, but he could lead us the the CFP NC game and returns next year. Add in another year for Johnson which I'm excited to see what he can do as well. Hard to see the staff playing him over those two.

    If he’s as good as advertised I’ll bet he makes it interesting. Depends how quickly he can learn the playbook

    He's an EE right? Would greatly increase his chances if he has 9 months on the training table.

    Lawrence is an EE. I believe 7 of the current 11 commits are EEs.

    I know this will piss some people off, but Bryant is EXTREMELY popular in the locker room. Got to be real careful with how this plays out or it will create some issues. Bryant has to lose the job more than Lawrence needs to win it.

    Sounds like coach speak BUT from two friends who went to luncheon last week where Streeter was speaking, he really likes Chase Brice. Complete QB in their eyes. Being redshirted. #QBU

    I think the redshirt also helps keep him around if/when Cooper or Johnson decide to transfer.

    Hey look if Bryant takes us to the playoffs, then it's his job until he gets injured or graduates. Just my 2 cents.

    I feel like this is only half true. The defense has carried us most games and we didn't have anyone better than KB to win us games at qb. I think that changes next year. Bryant gets too much credit for these wins.

    The question then becomes. If Bryant wasn't injured, are we undefeated right now? I think the answer is hell yes.

    Talked about it at tailgate. My predictions are this:

    -Cooper transfers this winter.
    -Lawrence comes in, blows everybodys nips off
    -Johnson struggles this spring, realizes he's not going to play here, transfers to somewhere in Indiana (where he can't enjoy a happy hour)
    -Bryant starts the season, Lawrence is the back up, Brice is happy to hold the clipboard
    -We win a few nattys

    That's as far as I got.

    Bryant play isn't going to elevate a team, but his play is good enough that it isn't going to cost the team on the balance. Bad QB play is the quickest way to sink a talented team. Everybody else on the roster would be a net negative in that department.

    I don't think Bryant is good enough to the point where if he played for generic middle of the pack P5 team that anybody would talk about him. Nor would Bryant elevate them from the middle of the pack.

    Agree generally but I think he elevated us vs. VT and maybe vs. Auburn (harder to remember that game).

    I think he's our best option and he's helped the run game, but I think if Lawrence is who everybody says he is, then it will be a shame to see Lawrence on the bench. Bryant has benefited greatly from an elite defense.

    Bryant's play can absolutely elevate a team if he's hitting deep balls the way he was the first half of the season. He can lead your rushing attack, make plays out of nothing, and move the ball through the air when he's dialed in. He threw the ball beautifully the first part of the season. Remember those deep outs and sideline ropes he was nailing against Auburn when the game was in doubt? He's had some WTF moments but has generally been good and done a good job of preventing turnovers.

    Sure.

    If Deon Cain is at his best, he is unstoppable, but Cain is most often goIng to be inconsistent, drop passes, etc.

    Bryant had few good deep balls in a small sample size to start the season, but hasn’t throw in well the rest of his career.

    More likely that Bryant just isn’t a good passer by and large, but agree if he gets hot and plays great he can elevate your team. So would many other QB if you took their best games.

    Our conservative game plan also plus into his strengths by raking up short completions and minimizing TO.

    200 rush yards for Lawrence ?

    CAn he run or is he a drop back passer ? Our offense seems to use a mobile qb who has designed runs.

    He's athletic enough to run some, but I wouldn't expect what we've been used to or seeing much zr
