Clemson or MLB? Chandler heeds Dabo's advice as he faces life-changing decision

Bubba Chandler has a big decision to make in the next few months, and he doesn't know what the decision will be. But like Dabo Swinney says, when he knows, he'll know. Full Story »

David you’re really coming into your own. This article is very well written; I enjoyed reading it. I’m a little snobbish when it comes to writing...and I have to say you’re the best, dude. The site is great, the writing is good, and you seem honorable. Thanks for the content!

If I had to make a guess, playing for Dabo and getting him as a teacher, is priceless. We will see him in Clemson!

Exactly what I was thinking. Unlike a home situation where a kid has an opportunity to raise his fam from poverty.

He will get a very good LOV policy. He knows the situation at Clemson and it really comes down to whether or not he's ready to enter the workforce, go through travel ball (which his parents are well aware of what that's about) or if he wants the "traditional college experience". Sounds like Mom and Dad leaning towards traditional college.

Great Story David. May be one of your best. I had a smile though out the whole story. It can teach us all about the hecklers of this life and how Dabo has encouraged us to not take criticism from those we wouldn't seek advice. 4-13><>

I do hope he gets a chance at an official visit before his move in date. Give Dabo and staff to a chance to meet him in person and meet the family at Clemson. It could go a long ways toward helping him make that decision.

As to Monte Lee, maybe he should let Dabo handle this.

Great story. What kid doesn't dream of playing in the big leagues, baseball that is. It would have nice to him play both sports at Clemson.

David Hood writes some great stories!
Thanks for the information and the painting of the scene on that red clay diamond!

We can keep hoping that Bubba is gonna be a great Clemson Tiger!

Then if it doesn't workout you can Chris Weinke yourself right back to Clemson.

This is definitely gonna come down to the wire from the sound of it...which probably bodes well for Clemson IMO.

As another poster mentioned, in this scenario it doesn't sound like the family is in a "we need this kid to make money now to help pull this family out of poverty" situation which allows the kid to really try and make a decision for his own benefit.

Can't fault him either way and would love to see him suit on for the Tigers on the football field and the diamond ??

Anyone have insight on how a player of this caliber would benefit from college ball vs going straight to the minors and grinding to the league?

(Other than potentially being guaranteed 1st rd money and being able to go to college later if they enter the MLB draft.)

Great article, David, in fact, unusually well written.

Reminds me of something that would have been in SI back when SI was good!

Full disclosure, I used to write "Player Profiles" for The Tiger, and I love articles that hit on the personalities and families of players.

Thank you for a great story, David - you took us all to the game with you, and I enjoyed it from start to finish!

CMON, Bubba - come be a Tiger! That 95 mph fastball will still be there 3 - 4 years from now if you need it!

Go Tigers!!

Hey David,
I didn’t realize that you have two kids now! In the Chandler story you said you had to load up your two little ones. Anyway, thanks so much for the continuing great stories and enjoy your beautiful family!

Hopefully, a 95mph fastball translates into a 70 yard TLaw type pass.

As so many on here have said, David's stories paint a picture. Great job! I hope this young man comes to Clemson, but he has great support from family and friends, and it seems as though he has a great personal relationship with God, and I'd bet he will make a great decision. I do hope he becomes a Tiger, but whatever his decision, I wish him the best.
