I care because it doesn't help recruiting when the fans bash a player who leaves because of perfectly acceptable reasons. The guy thinks has a better opportunity somewhere else. It's bush league to say "don't let the door hit you." We should be saying, "Thanks for your efforts, good luck to you."

In that case,

We will love you forever Ahmad. Also, I have connections at local car dealerships and sports apparel retailers. Recruits contact me.

Geez, some of ya'll act like he's killing our program.

He's a young man that's making a decision for his future. What his reasons are, is his business.

Personally, I commend him for making such a tough decision for his life and possibly career. A lot of young men wouldn't have the mental make-up to make such a big decision.

As far as our program is concerned, treat him like a senior. Thank him for his time and contributions and move on to the future.

That being said. Coaches have some recruiting to do.

Couldn't have said it better. Some people act like these kids shouldn't be in control of their own lives.

How can you say that? The kid has worked hard and given everything he's got to the program while for two years, playing sports.

"$240 million yeah ill holla at you football ✌️" - Ahmad Christian

"I prefer swisher" - Ahmad Christian



So yeah.. I could care less. Half these player's don't care about "Team". It's just the truth. Not everyone is Marcus Lattimore/Connor Shaw. Sounds to me like someone who would rather take it easy and go the baseball route. Baseball is NOTHING like the grind of week to week football & I can only imagine it's even tougher in the SEC. I'm good friends with a guy who was called by the reds to pitch for millions. The conditioning is way less intense & trust me they can get by with being lazy. While in the end probably make more money with less risk of injury.

I don't get this line of thinking. Same with the people who get upset when players go to the NFL as a junior.

You mean you expect someone to care about their university or their team more than their own career and future? Basically more than their own life?

Dude obviously either likes baseball more or thinks he has a better chance of making a career out of it. Why should he continue playing football at USC despite that in order to make fans happy?

I could care less what he does. Just like I don't care if players leave early. If the money is there take it.

Maybe Ahmad should have called Russell Wilson. He could have told him how hard it is to make a living as a professional baseball player. I'm guessing that Wilson was a better baseball player at NCST than AC is now and RW got drafted. Remember RW went to college to play baseball first and football second.

Baseball is every bit a grind. The season is long and you are playing pretty much every day. Being lazy is not likely to make you successful in any endeavor, especially including professional baseball. You know nothing, Jon Snow.

Stop being ridiculous. It's better we know now so that we can make preparations, try to use it as recruiting leverage for guys like Wesley Green and DJ Smith. Maybe float another offer out there. He did us a FAVOR. "Blindsiding?" Come on man, you say that like he is trying to hurt some one's feelings. It's laughable.

Sounds like your as much of a Gamecock as Ahmad is! Maybe both of you should move further north and dress in Orange! No such thing as once a Gamecock always a Gamecock! If you don't want to be a Gamecock - get the hell out!
