It's really not when you consider he's from GA and his family are all Bulldogs besides supporting B-Mac. People are really overstating that relationship. That has nothing to do with his ultimate choice, in fact the truth of the matter could be we'd have no shot without B-Mac. I'm not saying that I know that to be the case, but that could be the case.

No, it's really not. He has much better reasons to pick UGa or USC than where his cousin coaches, and if he does pick the Dawgs, it's hardly a slap in BMac's face. I want him to come here and hope that the current winds that are blowing towards Athens are wrong, but we'll survive if he doesn't pick USC.

I've got cousins that live within driving distance that I don't see but at reunions, if I actually make it. Just saying, cousins in the South may not mean that much.

A “back breaker?” Dude, we all want to land the kid but that is a mighty bleak overstatement you’ve made there. We have a fantastic class coming together, including at least one 5-Star D-lineman (possibly another) and the #2 composite pro-style QB in the nation...along with several other elite players at key positions. It will be one of our top two or three classes ever...with or without McLendon. Fingers crossed we get him, but our spines and our class are going to be just fine either way.

TM said yesterday McClendon called Boom last week to set up an official. That seems odd that he would that if he were going to Georgia. Also, his family has said it is totally his choice.

“While I cannot confirm whether he has committed to the Gamecock staff, I can tell you he spoke with head coach Will Muschamp and offensive line coach Eric Wolford last week and scheduled an official visit to South Carolina for the fall, something he would not likely do if he knew he was going to Georgia. However, I will continue tracking this as best I can.”

Speculation has been running strong this week regarding OL Warren McClendon of Brunswick, GA. Will it be USC? Will it be Georgia? Will he announce a commitment this week? McClendon provided his second update of the week to us Wednesday night.
So, will McClendon announce a commitment as soon as this week?
“I won’t be (announcing) for a couple of weeks,” he responded via text. “I’m about to leave for vacation.”
In a phone interview earlier in the week, McClendon said he was at about 90% on his decision. Wednesday he informed us that percentage has dropped.
“It kind of went down a little bit after talking to some of the different coaches,” McClendon wrote. “I talked to my cousin Bryan (McClendon, USC recruiter) today. I (also) talked to Georgia and Florida.”
McClendon said earlier in the week he is going to Cancun for his vacation and would be gone for most of the rest of July and thus would not be able to attend the recruiting events at USC and Georgia the end of the month.
He also said he wants to visit his final four schools, USC, Georgia, Auburn and Tennessee again before finalizing his decision.

Gamecock !!! Not saying he is a lock but its close to being a lock. The kid knows he was slow played by Georgia and knows SC prioritized him and that matters.

Georgia showed little interest up until this summer while SC has made him a priority from day one. This is the deal breaker.

Seems to be stepping back for a bit and thinking things through. He said earlier he was 90% sure he knew his decision and now it is being reported that the percentage is not as high. Also seems most of the UGA chatter was from his community and not so much coaches and his family.

Not worried here, I think there's a really good shot we get one out of him and Walker if the staff continues to work them both.


Possible shot for both.

I thought I read that he had already contacted both schools and told them of his decision. Just reading the tea leaves, if he had done that, Muschamp wouldn't still be on his as hard. Looks like he picked GA but is having second thoughts.

According to some stuff being passed around now UGAs staff isn't even saying he picked them. It's been the word in his home town, but nothing from the staff.


Seems like he's telling people different things. Which is fine, it's a tough choice to make.
