If that is his facebook page, and it sure looks like it, he has listed under education, University of South Carolina !

McClain is insurance.....good insurance, really good offer list....Bama, Auburn, LSU, Florida among others.
Let me rephrased, I think he will play DT before he leaves.

So, he apparantly posted onhis facebook page that he will attend South Carolina. I can't confirm bc I don't do the facebook thing, but I figured one of you might be able to see if this is accurate.

Oh, I see someone has confirmed. Interesting.

So his FB page is a bit confusing... his profile picture is a pic of him in an FSU jersey, but it does say University of South Carolina.

Long time FSU commit & he has never been here. I think this is really interesting....I can't recall a recruit who signed without taking a visit .

This should be very entertaining

Nice! Spurrier name means a lot in jacksonville area. So if you want some history of integrity, that makes a ton of sense.

Sometimes you just have to be in the right place at the right time. He wanted to go to Nebraska but the family didn't like that distance. We had the spot open (unlike other schools at this point), offer a great opportunity at a great program in a great conference. In short guys, this fell into our lap but kudos to our staff for being on the ball and getting this done.

I have been very critical of our recruiting process, but I will say our staff did a great job with this young man. They stayed with it and convinced him this was the place for him. SC may not have been his 1st choice or his 2nd choice, but we got him and that is what matters. Congrats to the staff.

Actually Nebraska almost forced the kid to commit. Bo told him they would pulll his offer if he did not commit and after what FSU did to him he just felt pressured to commit. I think he was set on SC once FSU was off the table but fell to the pressures at Nebraska. His Family was ok with him going to Nebraska but his commit to them was one of those pressure gigs.I also heard Bo negatively recruited the kid basically throwing SC and Spurrier under the bus. Great pickup.
