Hard to know where to place them tbh. Solid teams for sure though. I don't understand the hype for clements - they start the season strong, but are quickly surpassed by SL and LASA. Assuming everyone is bringing stacked teams, I don't see how clements will be in the top 10 this year with the insane number of national teams this year as well as the number of teams in general (75 or something)

Clements can definitely be a force to be reckoned with, especially during my time at LASA. Clements also did pretty well at MIT last year (top 10?), and they were very close to making nationals the last two years, barring some stupid mistakes but also debatable choices by the state supervisors. But such is the way of Texas SciO ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Any reason specifically for the mentor over solon? Or just intuition?

Solons builds seem underdeveloped at the beginning of the season (similar to LASA) and have a few bomb events that have carried over into this year. Mentor's builds seem very strong at the start of the season and I know they have dedicated event coaches for many events including EV (not to say that event coaches will necessarily guarantee success, but I am sure it lends a hand to doing well early in the season)
