The guy was an NFL prospect coming out of high school...5 star at one point. That's how bad decisions come back to haunt you.

Default Re: Blackshear gone

I always pulled for this guy and wanted him to step out and become a great player. Why some do in this game and some don't is why they write songs like "Glory Days".



It is true that "Glory Days" will pass you by in the blink of an eye and you will spend the rest of your life re-living what you could have been.


I wish him the best in whatever direction he takes in life.

This is why we are where we are: 4 and 5 star flops.

Blackshear
Connor Mitch
Shaq Roland
The QB from Pennsylvania (already forgot name)
Several other DLs

So many 4/5 star flops. Ugh.

Not sure those few names are reason we are "where we are"
many many teams have players not turn out the way they had hoped.
It is just the way it is in college sports

TRue but we have SO many. Just in contrast, Clemsons 4/5 star guys always seem to live up to the hype. Same for UGA, Bama, etc. Ours seem like 50% hit or miss. What was the 5* JUCO DE in 2015 who was supposed to be our next Clowney? He ended up having a couple sacks and not much impact.

The list of USC 4/5 star guys who ended up making little to no impact since 2000 would fill an entire thread. Those were off the top of my head.

Marquavius Lewis, he was a solid player for us. Looks like he's currently a free agent after being waived due to an injury with the Bills last August.

Not knocking him, he was a solid player, 1000x better than I ever was haha. But in context, he was hyped to be Clowney 2.0, a 5* JUCO. Like almost all our 4/5 stars he didnt play up to expectations. He did play solid though. Many of our star recruits severely underperform.

Like him as a person but BAW was a bust as a player on the field. Can't tackle a pillow that is laying down in front of him.

Exactly, he was always in position, but hardly ever made the play.
