WOW. His grades cost him a chance to play in the SEC. These kids need to concentrate on school work just as much or even more than they focus on playing football. Good luck to him at UTSA.

He was also kicked off his HS team. No mention of why, but he will not be playing football this year unless he transfers.

Default 2018 - Paxton Brooks - Tennessee

Saw this kid in action Saturday night. Already has a full ride to NC State, but has not yet committed. Apparently, we are interested .

If he wants to be a gamecock, I'm willing to bet CWM will give him that opportunity.

We can't afford to say no to one of the best punters in the country that grew up in Gamecock Country.

Unless they are the starting punter, I don't see most getting a full scholarship. If he is good enough and Champ sees a big enough need then maybe. Otherwise, he may be offered a preferred walk on spot.

Punters are more valuble than fans want to give credit for. You can flip the field with a punter and that would be important to us given we are having to do a complete over haul of our defense.
I remember the Culquitts..(spelling)..over at Teenersea...Those guys won a bunch of games for UT back in the day. I can go back to the Runegar for us. I know at won at least 3 games one year by flipping the field position.
But, these days you hardly see a program offer a schollie to any type of kicker because they are a really weird lot...

He'll get a PFO but I can't see him getting a scholly from us. We don't have enough spots remaining in this class to extend that offer.

I wasn't implying that they are not an extremely important role in the game of football. I was moreso saying that, generally speaking, the starters might be the only one on scholarship. Even then it's a maybe.

Default Re: 2018 - Paxton Brooks

As long as the majority of other programs are offering only PFWO status, then it will stay the norm not to offer kickers/punters schollys (until they are on campus and earn them).

If more schools like NC State decide to start throwing out scholarships to land the best specialists, then bigger schools will have to retaliate with offers as well if they want to ensure getting the best talent. Otherwise they risk failing to have a good kicker/punter.

I don't think (given our current roster) that we would offer a punter a full ride right now unless he could punt 80 yards every time.

I am not sure how you can get a 5.04 GPA, but it does sound like he is smart enough to get a full ride academically. At the least, he should get Palmetto Fellows money, which cuts the cost in half. He would save the rest in travel costs for him and his family.

It is hard to beat an Honors Program education - basically like getting a legitimate Top 25 Public College education without leaving home. The Honors folks get the best professors, smaller classes, best dorms, etc. So he can stay home, play in front of friends and family, get Mom to help with laundry and home cooked meals, and do it on the cheap.
