Default Victor Hampton might return?

Some sites reporting that Victor Hampton is considering his options, with regard to leaving early for the NFL. Anyone have any more up to date information on this?

South Carolina cornerback Vic Hampton indicated Tuesday that he is approaching his final game at South Carolina and is planning to turn pro early. But the junior also said he would give some consideration to returning to the Gamecocks for one more season if his feedback from the NFL Draft Advisory Board suggests he is not a first- or second-round draft pick.

If he's not going pro unless he's a first or second rounder...then he's coming back.

I do believe he is a 2nd round talent, but his numbers were low because of few opportunities. Coming back would be absolutely huge for us. bigger that QUELCEE even.

That was the meaning of my first post about it.

If he's basing his decision to stay or go whether or not he's going in the first or second round, then he's coming back (meaning, there's no way he goes first or second round).

Default Re: Victor Hampton might return?

I would love to have him back but also think he could improve his stock with a big year as a senior. Look how much he improved this year, and he was solid but if he comes back he could be the unquestioned leader of our defense. If he has an Antonio Allen, DJ Swearinger type of senior year, he would put himself in the top 2 rounds.

AA was drafted in the 7th.

It's difficult to be a top 64 pick. A school of thought is to try to increase your stock by a good senior year, but you run the risk of getting hurt...like Aaron Murray or sucking like Taj the Mirage, and dropping like a rock. The other school of thought is to get out early and sign your contract and start the clock on your 4 year contract to sign a new contract when you are 25, instead of 26.

7th round for AA is correct, but that big senior year is what got him into the league. I agree on those two quarterbacks you mentioned and was shocked that either of them stuck around, considering how thin the qb crop was last year, but I never criticize a player for sticking around for their senior year.

True, I was surprised as well. Had either or both of those qb's left, they would have been first or second rounders simply by default.

He would definately be one of those guys who would have to have a very strong combine or fall into right hands. Projected 2-3 by this website.

Hampton is currently rated as the No. 10 draft eligible cornerback and No. 88 overall prospect, according to NFLDraftScout.com's rankings. Through 12 games this season, he is tied for the team-lead in interceptions (3) and leads the Gamecocks with 12 passes defended.

I'd bet my house on the fact that he won't be projected better than a third round pick, but doesn't come back.

Absolutely. He will not go in the first 2 rounds. Unless he's got grades like Ace did last year, I don't see why he chooses to go. Gettin paid is gettin paid I guess.

well, you'll probably still have a house. What does it matter? I believe he doesn't come from the greatest of backgrounds, and scouts do like him regardless of what we want to believe. Ideally yea he stays his senior year and blows up, because I think he would.

But he's gonna do what's best for Victor as well he should. and he will have my full support no matter what he does. He has been a great story here at USC. I'm glad our coaches gave him a second chance, and I'm even happier that he grasped that second chance with a death grip and hasn't looked back.
