South Carolina quarterback commit Dakereon Joyner is pretty confident in his abilities on the gridiron.

On Tuesday, he boldly claimed that he would not lose to defending National Champion Clemson while at South Carolina.

"I promised myself to never lose to Clemson as a starting QB at South Carolina...NEVER! They gone feel what they missed out on I promise ya'll!" Joyner posted on social media.

However, on Thursday evening, Joyner released a statement that he was misunderstood and that it is not his character to trash talk another team.

"I apologize for anyone who was offended by the statement I made yesterday. I made a promise to myself! If I wanted to throw shots I would've directly said it to a fan, player, or Clemson football player. It was completely out of my character to say what I said. Some people took it the wrong way and that wasn't my intentions. I do apologize once again. I am confident in my future squad! I also am confident in what I said. I'm looking forward to competing vs. Clemson in the near future." #SpursUP #GamecockNation #WeCocky18

I just want to say on Joyner's behalf that he was a stand-up kid during the recruiting process the last few years while he visited Clemson's campus. TigerNet was able to speak with him several times during interviews and he was always very nice and respectful -- take that for whatever it's worth.

Clemson was Joyner's favorite school throughout the recruiting process, but the Tigers had other higher profile quarterbacks committed or on the roster and offered Joyner as an athlete instead. Joyner wanted to play quarterback in college so he donned the Garnet and Black and apparently now has a large chip on his shoulder against the Tigers.

The Clemson vs. South Carolina rivalry will start up again on Saturday, November 25 at Williams-Brice Stadium.
