Here is what they had to say:

Matt Bockhorst, OL, Cincinnati (Ohio) St. Xavier – commit:

“Can’t spell unsuccessful without USC.”

Chase Brice, QB, Grayson (Ga.) Grayson – commit:

“It was great! They absolutely dominated the whole entire game. Offense played phenomenal and defense played lights out.”

“Them boys came to play and put it on them.”

Amari Rodgers, WR, Knoxville (Tenn.) Catholic – commit:

“Deshaun for Heisman lol.”

Baylon Spector, LB, Calhoun (Ga.) Calhoun – commit:

“Thought it made a statement. I loved it. I thought it was a good thing for the ACC, too.”

A.J. Terrell, CB, Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake – commit:

“The better team won at the end of the day! Clemson is the king of South Carolina.”

Blake Vinson, OL, Citra (Fla.) North Marion – commit:

“I’m really excited for all of the coaches and players. Great win.”
