Default Re: Last season of football for Carson?

Risky move considering he doesn't have a baseball scholarship and would be contending for a walk on spot. Considering he didn't make it 2 seasons ago, and was one of the last guys standing for walk on's last season, he's going to be battling again for a walk on spot this coming spring.

Best of luck to him though, I think he see's the writing on the wall about his PT.

Seems like a huge risk to play baseball rather than football, but it's his decision. Hope he does some big things for us this year.

Guessing this means he knows he won't be getting much PT this fall. Good for him though, he'll be a monster at whatever sport he decides to focus full time on.

I think maybe his decision will be based on how much PT he gets this season.
We'll see.

Strange....Coach Sands just got through saying the other day after practice that Carson was making moves on both Davis and Wilds, and possibly giving USC 3 options instead of 2 for top RB...

I wish Shon and our coaches would just exercise some patience and let the season play out. I'm still perplexed over burning his RS for a few plays in the bowl (no matter whose decision it was.) So many things can happen this season that could land him in the starting role.

No biggie...I just think he has a ton of talent but with all his competition he needs to...well, stay focus.

Crazy that he goes from being Lattimore's backup a couple years ago to now having thoughts of quitting the team... especially considering how last baseball season went for him.

Almost like Kenny Miles situation. He was going to leave due to lack of playing time. Then he made the decision to stay.

He as an Under Armor All American Baseball Player selection. If he focuses on that sport, I bet he will succeed. Williams is a bigger version of him already, so this was coming. Good luck to both of them.

Which was likely to repeat itself considering the depth at RB. I just hope the fan hype doesn't contribute to the discouragement of some of these guys.

A season is a long time, a lot of carries, many ups and downs. See where he stands coming out the other side of this season.

I think he can help us big time on the football field. Not saying he should play over others, but he does have a lot of talent.

That being said....I would think long and hard about giving up that football scholarship. He didn't exactly tear it up on the diamond last year.

Default Re: Last season of football for Carson?

I've played baseball against him a few times and the kid is an absolute stud, it's tough to play two sports and be successful at both. Just like Bruce's basketball suffered so to did Carson's baseball. Baseball is a tough sport to be good at if you aren't playing it all the time, it's all about repetition. If he focusses full time on baseball it wouldn't shock me at all for him to win a starting spot; he is a legit five tool player, his timing seemed to be off all last year when he got in. Breaking balls made him look pretty lost at the plate. If him and Tanner get to share the outfield not many balls will be finding the outfield grass.
