Best thing USC fans can do is just ignore it. He's very likely sitting back laughing at the gullible people who actually believe this BS. Then he'll either get tired of his game or up the ante. IF he's serious about USC he'll show up on campus, until then it's more drama.

I would not be surprised if XT looked around - I have been saying it for a while now. And where there is smoke in recruiting, there is usually fire.

Having said that, I think the real wavering is down the road. Clemson is still gold in the media and the polls. When that changes, I think he will look around for real. Just keep looking at social media.....

My thoughts on XT based solely on my opinion and speculation:

Before the whole Tater spring game debacle, it was being said that XT was waiting to see how our team had improved from the year before. Well right now SC is getting a lot of buzz from ESPN and others. We have even been mentioned as the best team in the East. Also, XT knows a lot of the guys at SC and some of the commits from playing ball in the state, Clemson has this as well, but Joyner I think is a difference maker. I know he seems to be good friends with the Jones kid at IMG but that is a new friendship cause they go to school together, I think they room together as well. I made friends in college and stayed close to a few, but my long term friendships are what I went back to once I graduated.

Mainly I think he wants to visit but he knows the Dabo "rule", and that Dabo would not give him his blessing for a SC visit. He jumped the gun on his commitment for whatever reason and now I think he is a bit confused and getting nervous as it is getting closer for him to put pen to paper that actually binds him.

Very possibly nothing comes from the chattering about him but I think Coach and the team has his attention and he is seeing that some of the negative recruiting that he was told is not as true as it sounded 6 months ago.

Either way the Garnet and Black train will keep rolling, he just has to decide whether he wants to jump on the car or get passed by.

Here's (part of) the deal with that.

Since he's signed the financial agreement paper, Clemson couldn't drop him right now if they wanted to. But he COULD drop them. So there is no way that Clemson can enforce Dabo's little "rule" about Commits not taking visits. However, in exchange for that, Clemson gets to talk to him as much as they want.

And then there's this...

XT can visit anywhere he wants & dabo will do nothing except try to talk him out of it. Same as D Watson when he visited Auburn after commiting. If he wanted to visit he knows damn well he could & still have his slot at Clemson. So far he's not done so. That tells me a lot. The no visit rule is for the "little people"

Default Re: Discussion: 2018 Recruiting Impressions

I think with any recruiting it's best to take an interest from afar and then wait until after signing day to get excited or depressed or angry or whatever other emotions people want to spend on eighteen year old kids who haven't touched a football in college yet.

After the past few years, my new approach is simply to wait until Spring camp and Fall to get excited about player's potentials. Not to call out a single player, but BMac cured me of getting excited about highly recruited players.

All that being said, even if XT has no desire to step foot on campus, to those outside it helps fuel a perception that will help build a reputation, so I'm all for these guys to speculate. Even if not true, just helps us look more legitimate and a hotter ticket.

Until he sets foot on campus, dont hold your breath. Once a high profile commits he doesnt get any more love from the fans he committed to, those fans are after the next recruit. The only was to feel wanted again is flirt with the other school. In the end he likes the attention of being recruited. If he decomits, or shows up on Saturday, then maybe. Even if he shows up, I would expect a 100% committed to the pasture pansies shortly after.

Wish we had more flexibility, sounds like unless some of our commits don't qualify our numbers are getting tight. Maybe 4 spots left, still have a lot of talent on the board we're jockeying for.

All USC can do is try to get him on campus and go from there. Its nice to know that we (or FSU would be my guess) have given the Clemson staff a distraction though.

I'll re-open his thread is something happens like a visit or a decommit.

It's no more official visits. Can't stop a player from going to a game. Deshauns visit was not an official and neither is XT if he shows up

Well I'd say at this point with XT there is enough smoke to say there's definitely a fire, whether or not that fire amounts to anything or not remains to be seen.

Don't know how many of you follow Rob Proffit on twitter (he's a great Gamecock follow IMO) but he certainly seems to think something is up.
