This is one you have to dig deep on and gather all the facts. We do know at SC its FM's way or the highway so I am sure if FM is interested that will be the first thing made clear. TM's character and flaws are probably no worse than half the guys FM has signed so I wouldn't rule anything out.

Frank may be just what he needs. frank won't give him the leeway that smart did and some kids do much better with more discipline, I know I did.

If we have room and he comes here it would be a low risk but potentially high reward situation for SC and Tevin Mack. If he gets into trouble while sitting out a year he would be lower profile and it would probably not damage a team for whom he is not playing. He would quietly disappear with some by-line that he wasted a second chance.

The problem for Frank is that he has already had some bad experiences at SC with discipline problems. James Thompson (he assaulted his girlfriend before he enrolled; there was one other before him who was a part of Frank's first class) and the 4 guys last year. Ray Tanner may not let him take another chance especially on a guy who has been dismissed by another school. Besides, isn't there a SEC rule that prohibits a player dismissed by another school from transferring to an SEC school? As I remember, that rule was used against a football player (JC Jackson) who wanted to transfer here.

Someone else mentioned that coming home to Columbia might be a bad thing because this is where he grew up and he may gravitate to a bad crowd. But I don't remember hearing or reading that he got into trouble while he played at Dreher H.S. Perhaps he fell into the wrong crowd in Austin, TX and coming back home would be a good thing for him.

I reckon we will find out pretty soon.

There are two rules in play, one about transferring from another SEC school (would not apply) and another about being dismissed due to certain legal problems.

In Mack's case, I don't know what the issues are - if it is something like missing classes, he might be okay. I am sure Frank knows the deal and can weigh the risk versus reward. Remember that we got Chalmers after he was dismissed by Clemson (pot bust) so the rule is not for just any dismissal.

I think he was just granted his release for transfer. Not sure if that is different than being dismissed, but I would assume it is not the same and probably wouldn't be subjected to the SEC rule. But, what do I know?

I'm not aware of any disciplinary issues at Dreher either. He's still got a pretty steep climb to come and play at USC, though. As much as people want the "home state" kids to come back when they go elsewhere, it's not going to be easy for Tevin to do so in this case.

We didn't even make his top 4 when he committed to Texas. I just rewatched his 2nd commitment video. The way I see it, it's his loss not ours.

Ahh ... thanks.

Now that you mention it, I think the second rule applies if the dismissal involved some sort of offense like assault or even robbery. (moral turpitude)

But we have to trust Frank and Ray. I'm sure there has been some discussion about whether he is a take.

I wouldn't think Frank Martin would want him. Think beyond scoring points...is he worth the potential trouble?

Example: Manziel is a great football player, you see how his off the field antics have cost him. No team in the NFL wants to deal with a trouble maker...and Manziel would sell a hell of a lot more tickets, jerseys, etc than Mack ever would.

Tevin is considering Gamecocks and also UGA. Family wants him closer to home. UGA firing Fox would certainly benefit USC's chances

Poor comparison. Manziel is not a good NFL player. He flat out sucks and is more of a sideshow now.
