Why didn't Marcus Lattimore come to Clemson?


Posted: Jul 15, 2015, 1:15 PM
 

I know we were the first to offer. I know Slurrier danced for the commitment. What was Lattimore talking about we he said he was being told the truth? I assume by Clemson. What was the deal? Thanks I'll listen off air.

No real reason. Unlike clowney there wasn't an academic concern. HE Just didn't want to come to Clemson even though 4-5 of his teammates did.

academic concern because he might not get in anywhere (NCAA standard). Clemson and SC are equal on standards for a football's academic requirements.

Dexter wideman is taking algebra 1. Hunter renfrow is taking Civil engineering courses. Same NCAA standards, yes. Same school standards, no.

I meant to say that he wasn't being told truth. Sorry.


I thought he grew up a coot fan?

It's less common now, but some prospects still stay loyal to the school they've pulled for their whole lives.

His sister was at USC just had more ties to them.

Ok thanks. I must have misunderstood what someone said or I made it up myself. I am glad it was that simple.


That and they gave his sister a full academic scholarship...


Posted: Jul 15, 2015, 1:38 PM
 

just as soon as Marcus signed his national letter of intent.

Well I mean we let Charlie Whitehurst's sister play basketball here... It happens.


At least Charlie's sister was a legitimate player.

As a senior in high school, she averaged 20 points and 6 rebounds per game and was named a Street and Smith Honorable Mention All-American.

I don't know what kind of student Lattimore's sister was but I do know that it was only after Lattimore signed to play football at $CU that they gave his sister a full academic scholarhip.

He was a coot, coots don't play for Clemson.


It was the transition of Head Coaches at the time

Perfect storm for the coots.

Because Cha-Cha-Slide

According this article - apparently his mother was impressed by Slurrier doing the Cha-Cha-Slide in her living room. She was "sold" at that point. Smh

He tried to commit to us but we had bigger fish in the pond, so we turned him down. That's what I heard.

Not sure where you heard that crap. We offered him before the Coots did.

i heard his Mama likes chicken


Posted: Jul 17, 2015, 12:05 AM
 

Churches catered his recruiting trip and his mom really enjoyed it. She said it was a closer drive and Clemsons mascot scared her but she liked the Chicken.

It was really simple, she didn't know they were going to run her boy so much he was to hurt to go to the Pros. Talk about if we could go back we would all change our decisions. As the years go by and his knees hurt bad when he walks he is going to through the "what ifs" we all go through. He likes Orange better than the coots that run his future into the ground. It really is sad that a bucket changed his future. I'm sure he will tell all the young folks that make a decision when Mama's hungry is not wise.

It breaks my heart knowing he would be in the Pros right now " if only" ( we have all had a, if only) Churches had not been so good. I breaks my heart know Spurhead did this to Marcus. (He was a great guy until)

Stevo- let us run him up the middle, around the end and on third down and six, he gives it to Marcus. This abuse was real.
