College recruiting's 'dead period' has begun; but that didn't stop the weekend from being a lively one on the commitment front. Some quick notes:

- Clemson is not only back in the game for former commitment Demarcus 'Bud' Robinson of Peach County, Ga., who recently flipped from the Tigers to Florida - Robinson has, according to multiple reports, now de-committed from Florida and re-committed back to Clemson. Tiger coaches Robbie Caldwell and Jeff Scott visited Robinson last week, after he had committed to the Gators. He initially committed to Clemson during a visit to campus last summer. He is considered to be the state of Georgia's top high school receiver.

- Cornerback Adrian Baker, a Hollywood, Fla. native and a recent visitor to Clemson, has de-committed Florida State and now says he'll choose between Clemson and Oklahoma.

- Clemson 2014 running back commitment Dalvin Cook of Miami-Central told Scout.com after his state championship game that he may open his recruiting up again next summer, and is also interested in Florida, Florida State and Georgia.

- Clemson's Chick-fil-Bowl game against LSU will be of high interest to former Tiger commitment Robert Nkemdiche, who plans to visit LSU, but tells ESPN that Clemson is still very much in the picture.

- New Auburn secondary coach Charlie Harbison is making a strong push for 2014 Clemson commitment Dylan Sumner-Gardner, who has posted seemingly conflicting Twitter messages about where his recruiting stands.

- Former Clemson recruiting target Tramel Terry, who recently signed with Georgia in advance of January enrollment, has been told that he may have torn his ACL when he was injured on the opening kickoff of the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas on Saturday.

- In case you missed it, 2013 Clemson commitment Ben Boulware of T.L. Hanna High in Anderson, S.C. was named as South Carolina's defensive MVP in the Shrine Bowl. The linebacker had nine tackles, including 2.5 for loss, and recovered a fumble and returned it 26 yards. Boulware was one of four Clemson commitment who played in the all-star game, along with defensive back Jadar Johnson, defensive end Dane Rogers, and wide receiver Mike Williams.

Tramel Terry tore hs ACL.
I guess that still ties up one of Georgia's scholarships.
That is sad in a way.

I hope we can indeed lock up Adams, hes a darn good ball player and if we can improve the line, that will give Venables LB's a chance to make plays. His scheme is sound, just gotta have the right fit. Boulware is a beast and will make a huge addition. While I wish Nkemdiche would haev stayed locked in, and I dont believe he has any intention of coming here, I would like it. I guess if I was an 18 year old kid I would be eating up the attention as well, so im not going to knock him. I mean who of us wouldnt love taking trips to campus all over the country with all sorts of people(ladies LOL) trying to help give you incentives to come there LOL Oh gosh, not me! Still, im thinking hes SEC bound. I know his Brother is at Ole Miss, but umm, which program has put more D-Lineman in the pros? Thats right Clemson, but now if LSU is in the mix, gonna be a tough call.
