A caller said on Mickey's show this a.m. that Flowe

[3]
Posted: Dec 16, 2019 8:34 AM
 

posted a video on his Instagram where he shouted "F#@k Clemson!"

I'm guessing that should pretty much seal it, if true.

"When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car."

"I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it."


that's okay...

and I doubt he would've even gotten accepted. Not to mention the off the field stuff. He would've been a disruption in the locker room. Plus, whoever he picks obviously cheated.

I agree! The film that I saw on him where plays where he wasn’t blocked and blew up a ball carrier.

Does this mean he has changed his mind ??

It had been reported many times on TNET that he was a ""LOCK"" --

how can a kid go against all that ???

Just can't trust these younger generation kids !!!!!!

The shameless, unadulterated flattery, worship and bs these guys are used to getting so when they do have a line drawn for them sometimes kids can’t handle it. I do love the way they seem to handle recruiting and we should be thankful

some service now have him trending to Oregon based, at least in part, on Clemson getting a commitment from Trenton Simpson on Saturday.

Obviously Simpson isn't why Flowe changed his mind. They would have played at the same time.

the scenario I stated below would explain a possible expletive-laced rant against Clemson by Flowe, if he indeed said it.

scholarship numbers come into play. It is quite possible that Flowe would not commit and when the staff secured Simpson, they told Flowe there was no longer a scholarship for him.

These are all kids...let Dabo get 3&4 stars with great attitudes and they will be all 5 star plus by their soph season...a famous philosopher once said "don't sweat the petty stuff & don't pet the sweaty stuff"... the Clemson coaching staff has done a good job of picking great ones and most of them didn't start out as a constellation, just small solar systems! Good coaching can make the difference..just look at Dumbo Fishnet at Texas A&M more five stars than the whole ACC and he still can't win even with 7.5m$/yr...ain't life grand!

We would probably still take him as a preferred walk-on though if he promised to control the potty mouth. :)

It's a different world in recruiting now. Every recruiting cycle there seems to be a few who enjoy the hype and drama of keeping the world waiting with bated breath. Still hard for me to believe we're at a level where we can turn away 5 stars. Whether Flowe or Burch choose us or not, still a great time to be a Tiger!

I am not sure why so many on here freak out when another Tnetter posts what he heard on our flagship station’s morning show. He wasn’t advocating that Flowe is taking cash, or isn’t talented; he was just simply stating what he heard on the radio. I was listening this morning and heard the same comments. Some additional things Mickey said, which he admits are some speculation;
1) Flowe has strong west coast ties and extended family pressuring him to stay at home.
2) During Flowe’s On campus visit there was some player feedback that he may not be a good cultural fit with our program. Not a bad guy, but was described as brash.
3)Flowe wouldn’t pull the trigger on a commitment or give the staff a strong indication of a future commitment, even after BV went to the west coast for an in home visit.
4)On the other hand, Simpson wanted to be a tiger in the biggest way, even had his mom pay for a ticket to the ACC championship game which he attended decked out in Clemson attire; even without a formal offer on the table.
5)Simpson is a highly rated 5 star, with comparisons to Vic Beasley so the staff wasn’t settling on a much lower level recruit.

Mickey speculates that CU went with the player that really wanted to be here vs the one that was continuing to be non-committal. There were no knocks on Flowe’s talent level; as he obviously deserves the recruiting ranking he has. At the end of the day CU isn’t a good fit for everyone and the thought is the staff offered the next best guy we could get who was definitely All In.

You're not going to find it on Flowe's social media it was on a USC (our USC, the West Coast one) player's IG live stream. The player is Chris Steele, famous for being a USC commit that signed with Florida and enrolled there for spring ball, then his roomie was accused of bad things and Steele was able to transfer with no penalty. He signed FinAid papers at Oregon, then at the last second went to USC.

Anyway, he and Flowe were together at USC during Flowe's official visit. On the IG story Steele went to trash talk Clemson and Oregon with Flowe joining in. I'm not sure of all the details and who said what, but apparently it was all positive USC things. Oregon fans saw the live stream because some still follow Steele.

Before that we were getting pretty confident it was looking good for Oregon, but now we're thinking that the "USC family" that are friends of the program *paid* a visit ;) as they tend to do around this time of year.


Didn't see that, but he is wearing an Southern Cal hoodie***

Cut it with the "he was overrated" or "we really didn't want him" BS. Statements like that are absolutely ridiculous and frankly "cootish". Flowe is a generational LB coming out of HS. NFL scouts are already watching him. He's a big time difference maker and we'd be fortunate to have him on our team. So don't try to make yourself feel better if he decides to go another direction.

Just checked and I didn't see or hear anything like that. I still think we get him and there's just a lot of smoke being blown for Oregon. Either way they kid is a headhunter and may take a min to adjust to CBV still of defense, but he definitely isn't overrated.
