Question: Who will be the top player in the state next year?

Answer: Good afternoon. Sorry I am a few minutes late. I have a major story to tell you about and news from junior day to give out in this chat. Hope all is well. The top player in SC next season will be Clifton Geathers of Carver's Bay HS. He will be a terrific OL.

Question: Good to see you MP. HUEY SUCKS!

Answer: LOL. OK I won't hold it back any longer. Becky Bowman is leaving Compliance and going to Vickery and Phil Grayson is going to compliance

Question: gotta think a true freshman TE plays...who is more ready, Muse or Barry ready?

Answer: Williamson's move to TE moeans one less will play but I think Barry is ahead of Muse. Remember he is a year older and more experienced

Question: Perhaps you can confirm or refute whether the Tigers' NIT game is on TV. We've asked just about everyone else.

Answer: I have heard both stories but I don't know for sure. I will check for my show today

Question: So what's the story on the brawl article? (have to ask)

Answer: I am geting closer. Hope to have something the first week in April

Question: Is the aTm game on TV?

Answer: Not sure

Question: what effect does the bowman move have?

Answer: It depends. Only hindsight will tell us the truth but it could be great. Her personality could be suited for enrichment. Grayson moving to compliance is also interesting but he will not deal with football. Stephanie Ellison will be the compliance director for football

Question: is that legit info re: becky bowman?

Answer: Yes

Question: Any reason for the change? Was it forced or voluntary?

Answer: I think Vickery needed a change

Question: Mickey, don't you think compliance needed a change, too?

Answer: Yes. Stephanie and Phil will do a good job

Question: Is Jaquez McKissick ready to play? 6'7" 301! Haven't we got to find some PT for him early?

Answer: I think he has looked good in shorts but we will know more about him after some days in pads

Question: How have the Receivers looked thus far during drills?

Answer: Great. Grant has made another comeback. Everyone is healthy, But the wind was a major factor Friday and Saturday

Question: Have you had a chance to judge how Charlie has taken to the change at OC?

Answer: I hear only good things. This is a key to the offense but I think the relationship will work

Question: How have the backup QBs looked? Especially the redshirt freshmen.

Answer: I think all three have looked good in the first two days but again the wind and not being in pads were factors. BTW-Spence likes athletic quarterbacks. He wants to be able to move the pocket and and have a guy who can run back there. He will not recruit a pocket passer in the future

Question: Name 3 first year players who will contribute this year.

Answer: Durrell Barry, Phillip Merling, Miller or Clay

Question: Whats the SID telephone number again?

Answer: 864-656-2114

Question: How has Sergio looked at CB?

Answer: I have not heard a lot but I think he will be OK. Coach Blackwell says he is a play-maker with good size, speed and ball skills

Question: This looks on paper like the best OL we've had since Bowden got here, thoughts?

Answer: Yeah and it will just keep getting better. The last two classes have really helped. In the 2006-2009 range the Ol should be a major stength of the program. Richardson, Lambert, Ruffin, Austin, Humphries, etc

Question: How was Junior Day received by those in attendence?

Answer: Good. They made major in-roads with Sapp. I think they lead there. Wilkerson had a great visit. I think they were impressed

Question: What do you think we'll finish this year overall and in the ACC? Thanks

Answer: I haven't studied the brackets but Illinois will win it. I like Syracuse too

Question: What about Chapman . . . he leaning our way?

Answer: I have not talked to him

Question: How strong is the state of SC next year for recruiting? I have heard mixed reviews so far about it being extremely top heavy (1-5) and then nothing after that

Question: How about the RB from Cary (forgot his name)?

Answer: I have not talked to him yet

Question: How much more talented is VT than Clemson in Football?

Answer: They are better at TE, Special teams, LB, WR. Clemson will be better at QB, RB. The major difference now is VT is playing in a system that has been in place for years. They have great system in place in every aspect of their program

Answer: Johnson was and he looked great. He is a monster. Clemson will be in it

Question: Diomande....what is the verdict on him?

Answer: He has a big upside but is very inexperienced

Question: Are we ok at LB? Hill was a big loss...

Answer: He will be missed. Waters will be a very good player. Billie is very good. Watkins and Dunham will be solid. Clay and Miller have a chance. Gotta run to the day job. Hope everyone has great day.
