This young man gets it. His word means everything to him & his mom said, before the season, he would take his visits & once he committed that was.it....the visits would just be for him to visit places he otherwise wouldn't be able to.

So, having an earnest conversation results in weak name calling? Cool.

I hope he sticks, as he's probably the highest-regarded commitment in this class, and he has the tools to be Norwood 2.0. I'm simply voicing my concern when two SEC rivals with significant closing abilities are hanging around a little bit longer than is making me comfortable.

Gamecock 100%

There's a difference between being very vocal about the school you like and being "Gamecock 100%". I'm on twitter, I notice what he says on there, to the media, and to other recruits. But what makes him as committed as a guy like KC Crosby or Joe Blue? You don't see them taking OV's and scheduling in-homes with other schools and making comments like "USC's still my favorite right now" or "___ gave me something to think about".

I love BAW as much as y'all do but to me he's less committed than the majority of our class right now. I think he ends up a Gamecock but his commitment level isn't on the level of the guys in our class who actually shut it down and gave meaning to the word 'commitment'. I honestly think he's about USC 75% right now judging from everything I've seen and read.

For me, red flags go up when I start seeing articles like

"______ says he remains solid for Gamecocks"
or
"____'s mom insists he is still committed to USC"

Why is an article like that even necessary if the kids is so solid and committed? Somebody with good sources is hearing things to the contrary, that's why.

See, this is another thing people are ignoring. He is having to answer questions because there are obviously questions to be answered in regards to his commitment level. Somebody clearly knows something, otherwise they wouldn't be asking him such questions.

Default Re: 2014 Commitment - Bryson Allen-Williams

that may be true, but when an article is released saying that a recruit is solid to another school we as fans on a message board assume that it is true and assume the recruit isn't coming here. It can't be both ways. To me, most articles written don't have any more sources than we do and are only there to stop fans from stressing out. Our coaches know much better than any recruiting site and better than any of us how they stand with BAW, Green, etc... and will prove it by closing strong.
IMO our coaches would(and maybe they are behind the scenes) be pushing these guys not to take these visits if they were truly worried. Trust has to go both ways and this shows our coaches trust.

If you are listening to BAW on the radio you have got to feel extremely confident. The guy is all gamecock and even said that he thinks wes green will be a gamecock with him come next week. Great interview for those that are feeling uneasy.

Okay, did Clowney & Marcus, both silent commits at the time, take OVs? Crosby & Blue are fine players, but are they BAW...Negative. What determines whether a committed player gets the opportunity to visit other schools after he commits...how good he is- bama is the only school that I know of that makes every recruit say, WOW....I have something to think about.

Bottom line, no one is truly 100% committed until the signed LOI is received in February. We don't have a policy like a school like Texas did....you can take OVs if you are committed & BAW has & will. If he doesn't sign, then we dropped the ball. Do you guys know who he talks to or otherwise communicates with all of the darn time??? One guess, he is a coach @ Carolina-after calling Mom, he immediately called this coach.

Remember my guarantee re Shaq Roland despite his visits & people believing Coach Early's BS? How did that turn out? Well, I'm pretty much saying the same thing here-this young man will be a Gamecock!

I think a lot of folks are worried about a Matt Rolin again. I would sure hate to lose a player like BAW. Great player with high character,but whatever happens,happens. One thing that helps me is that the so-called experts really aren't experts,and i never believe everything i read.

When did he say RIGHT NOW? I saw the tweet and it never once said he is still committed to usc right now. Where did the right now b/s come from, because if it was from that tweet then someone misquoted horribly.

Right here.

I am still committed to South Carolina, but Alabama gave me a lot to think about.
I am going to go home and pray about it, but I am still solid right now.

That's straight from TBS.
