Default Xavier Thomas rumors?

Had a few SC people tell me he was about to decommit. Any truth to these rumors?

Wishful thinking on their part based on misinfo put out by their staff.By misinfo, I mean outright lies by a minor league staff playing to their Idiot fanbase.

More than that unfortunately. Some very fishy things going on here. We know a lot on this situation but have been holding our information until the appopriate time.

This is the last thing the staff needs to be dealing with this week with the big game coming up.

I love when Robert drops teasers, but this sounds like a bad-news teaser......

Where is this coming from? Did he delete a tweet? Everything on his twitter right now is pro-Clemson.

Robert, does Clemson have a reason to be worried about his commitment? Hard to believe he would be decommiting the way he has been recruiting for Clemson....

We have recruiting leaders in most every class. Isn't XT that guy in this class? I would be really shocked if he all of a sudden de-committed after putting that effort into bringing in other guys.

Everything I've read centers on a tweet to KJ that will muschamp then retweeted. All threads on this have now been deleted from TOS.

This Tweet and UsuC coaches begging him to visit this weekend after he said he was not taking any visits is what's got the Coots all excited. I have no idea what Robert is talking about, but he is privy to some info that we know nothing of at this moment.

So Muschump retweets something that could mean absolutely anything, and everyone is losing their minds now?

Trust me there is plenty that never gets out. We will release more when we the time is appropriate. We know what to expect and what has gone down this week. We will wait to see if what we expect happens and if it does we will share some background, but we certainly won't be able to share everything.

Oh joy. We're getting to the "over analyze every snap twitter decision from a 17/18 year old" phase of recruiting.

What exactly changed from the "people close to the situation that we've talked to believe these are just rumors" that you originally posted in this thread to this?

A lot of smoke to this rumor, my guess is he will re open his recruitment by the end of the weekend if not the end of the day....I'm not trying to be negative, that's just my opinion. However I still have the upmost faith in dabo and Co. to land a very solid DE class.

I wonder if XT just wants to go to other games and Dabo might be sticking to his "do not visit other schools if you are All In" rule???

Man, Dec 20th can't get here fast enough!!

Looked at the Gamecock site from 247 and the only mention from them about it is coming from this site and this thread. Muschump has been following XT and retweeting him for a while now. XT just spent 3 or 4 days in Clemson, I believe, and tweeted how he couldn't wait to play defense on this team. Everything I have seen, read and heard point to this being a lot more smoke than fire. XT has more than any other recruit this class been recruiting hard for Clemson. Usually when a recruit is fading they begin to show cracks and I haven't seen any. ESPN just did an article calling Clemson DLU. Said that Clemson has put the 2nd most defensive linemen in the league the past 10 years with 13 only behind LSU with 14. South Carolina fans need worry more about how they are going to get through the 2nd half of their season because I think they lose to A&M, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Clemson. I also think Vandy could give them a game as well. As far as the visits guys know what Dabo's rule is and Dabo is relentless in making sure guys that commit know it. Thats why Dabo tries to talk guys out of committing because to Dabo and Clemson being committed is very very important to them. Clemson doesn't lose guys to de-commitments for that very reason. You don't even need all the fingers on one hand to try and count the de-commitments the past several years under this staff. Thats why until it comes out of the players mouth it just doesn't concern me. Thats just my opinion. Also pretty sure XT has signed his FAA so while I know its not binding its still a big deal especially with communication.
