National signing day is a day in which players officially join their new teams for the first time, but that hasn’t stopped some of the country’s top prospects from jumping right into rivalries. Dante Sawyer, a four-star defensive end recruit that signed a letter of intent with South Carolina on Wednesday, gave us an example of that when he posed for a photo with a Clemson commit.
As you can see from the photo above that The State’s David Cloninger passed along, Sawyer tossed up five fingers while standing next to four-star linebacker recruit Korie Rogers. South Carolina has beaten Clemson the last five seasons, and Steve Spurrier is always taking shots at his in-state rival.
Earlier on Wednesday, a Florida State commit’s younger brother wore a shirt that read “Sucks to be U,” which was an obvious shot at Miami. These are the reasons we love signing day.
