    On to the next one. Dado couldn't recruit very well in year 2. Gotta give Muschamp time. Kinda glad this is over.

    This doesn't seem right for some reason. Why would the dad announce it? XT loves the process and the hype. So at the very least you think it would be him announcing it with one of those over produced videos.

    Also, is he going to follow Dabo's no more official visit rule? Seems unlikely.

    If this is true, this sucks.

    There's some kind of rumor going around that XT and his family were trying to get Muschamp to pull a few strings to get his dad out of prison. And when Muschamp couldnt pull that off they stopped all communication with our coaching staff. No idea if it's true.

    Not surprised. Another reason for me to despise the previous coaching staff for putting us in this position while our athletic director did a Nero impression and allowed it to burn.

    You know they are trying to pull Zamir White away from UGa at this moment too. He is on campus.

    It appears we don't play the game as well as our neighbors do. Thus we will always trail in recruiting. 100 plus years of bullish!@&. That is what gamecocks have dealt with.

    As a Clemson fan, I'm a little confused. The timing seems way too early for him. There is no way this kid shuts it down. He loves the drama and hype.

    I'm not sure I've seen a parent confirm a commitment before.

    It's called shame. Daddy can't wait to go shopping. Everyone at Wilson believed him when he chose Carolina. Then suddenly he hauled ass to Florida, Daddy got rich and you know the rest of the story. I'm so sorry for him.

    Look for his dad to get out of jail soon, and for his Pressure Washing company to blow up. Those would be the signs of fowl play.

    Keep it classy gamecock nation. We have a LONG time before signing day NEXT FEBRUARY. XT may very well change his mind SEVERAL times. We still have a great shot, I think.

    If you are a five star recruit..and not a all in fan of either school..would you rather play for a school that has played for a national championship the last 2 years or a school that just lost in the Birmingham bowl?...easy choice..

    This is what clemzun does- get them on campus, don't let them leave without committing. "Whatever it takes"- bring religion into it, bags of money, bus load of sluts... WHATEVER!!!

    Remember when Gimore and a couple other future Ganecocks went to clemzun for a visit, committed and realized on the bus ride home they had been railroaded and apologized to our coaches, decommitted and turned to us? This is nothing new..

    He hasn't signed a damn thing, the show ain't over yet!! Muschamp knows how to play big boy recruiting games too, he knows how to flip guys on signing day... let it play out, don't bash a 17 YO for grabbing at the "shiny thing" in front of him! He will have another 8 months or so to think about this before deciding where to go if he wants to enroll early.

    It's Clem$on. This started when Grantz beat the brakes off of them almost 40 years ago. Went through a slump after they had to bring Hatfield in to keep the NCAA at bay. Think back to when Spiller was about to leave to be close to his child. Then he miraculously decides to stay in Clemson. The legacy of BC Inhabinet just keeps on giving.

    XT told us, he grew up a Gamecock fan, everything was even & he was not close to committing, he was not committing until Dec 20. Was anything he ever said true?
