He is a 2018 kid. We are holding off taking his commitment until we feel better about his grades and know he will qualify. Grades/switching schools are why we did not go hard after him early and allowed VT to slip in.

If the academics are good, he is a lock here - and, apparently, NC State and VT both realize it. I think NC State is tired of going after SC recruits and coming in second, just a waste of their time and resources (does not bother me at all).

I understand all this. What is his one course to finish comment all about. Plus he can commit any time he wants. It's Muschamp's decision whether he accepts it or not. I think he has a commitable offer from us subject to correcting all academic issues.

Not that it matters now but he was never going to VT he just committed to them because it was the first big offer. If he gets his grades in order he's a guaranteed SC lock as he's been one since before we even offered

That is just it, the offer is not commitable yet - the coaches need to see progress towards being eligible first. Trust me, a 17 year-old HS student is not going to be in summer school unless he has serious grade issues.

So I am assuming that the coaches have told him that they will take his pledge if he gets the needed grade on the course(s).

Exactly, I never transferred schools before so I don't know if that has any affect on things but rising seniors should already have enough credits to graduate early, it was a bit odd when I read it but hopefully he continues to focus on that end for his own sake.

I wonder if going from private to public has been an issue with grades?

Grades is why he has bounced around from what I have read.

If he follows the path USC has laid out for him he will qualify and not have to go the JUCO route.

The transfer between schools is not the issue for his grades

Per Phil Kornblut,

Dutch Fork DB Bryce Thompson said Thursday night he has successfully completed the academic work he needed to be able to commit on July 30th. Thompson, who plans to graduate early, needed one more class this month in summer school to be in a position to announce his decision Monday. He now plans to move forward with that as he has already made up his mind on his school.

I have to talk with my mom and coaches, said Thompson, a former Virginia Tech commitment. USC, NC State and Virginia Tech were the schools on his list. He decommitted from the Hokies in June after attending a USC camp and the Gamecocks have ratcheted up their interest since then. He was back at USC last Saturday.

I wasnt a hundred percent committed to VT and and I felt like it wasnt fair to me to stay committed if Im over here looking at other schools so I decided it would be the best if I decommitted, Thompson said. Im looking for playing time, of course, and how the coaches treat you and how they make you become a better player.

Thompson, who also plays receiver, said USC commitment QB Dakereon Joyner has been in his ear a lot attempting to persuade him to commit to the Gamecocks. He said earlier this month while USC has been on him hard he wasnt hearing as much from Virginia Tech and NC State.

I love getting these local guys.

Apparently it's a Clyde Wren philosophy (and I'm sure it's a common way of thinking amongst all coaches), that if two recruits are equal and you can't decide on which one, always go with the home state kid.
