It was a soft cap before. Now it's a hard cap and transfers count against it.

Recently, he made a comment that he made a business decision with committing to Clemson. That did not sound heart felt to me at the time and now there is smoke so.....maybe

This may have been posted. I also, read that we are no longer recruiting Steven Gilmore from the BigSpur.

To be fair, there was plenty of that from our fans when he committed there to begin with.

At Clemson, I can always trust those coaches. Coach (Dabo) Swinney, youve seen his track record and coach (Brent) Venables youve seen his track record. I did some research on coach (Todd) Bates, hes a good coach. With that decision, I felt it was best for me.
"business decision" is laughable at best and disrespectful to SC coaches at worst. He is a great talent but is too impressionable and definitely has the drama gene. Wish him well but move along, he gone

I'd be fine if he ends up here, but certainly don't care much of he does. He has already proven what type of person he is in terms of drawing attention and the spotlight to himself. Doubt he flips to us.

Because the NCAA is trying to take out oversigning and the inevitable move would have been with a hard cap for teams to overload on transfers to skirt the rules.

I get the policy reasons for the hard cap, but the language doesn't read as if transfers count towards the 25.

According to TBS Tyson Williams will count against our cap for this season since he went on scholarship over the Summer. Him and Tyreek Johnson (greyshirt) will both count against the 25.

Ill help you out a little. Basically it's nothing. Absolutely nothing concrete & nothing that anybody wants to put their name to. My guess is that XT is making some noise behind the scenes trying to get some attention. Won't be the last time & if you read anything into it you're very likely buying into simple cries for attention.

Hope that helps, right now it's a nothing burger.

That's what a lot of ppl on Twitter are saying. Attention and just trying to cause a scene.
