Devonaire Clarington

Recommended Posts

Per an OB poster:

Clarington's issue has always been the transcript and trying to get it through the clearinghouse. That was going to be the challenge. Texas took a gamble on Clarington because sometimes those things fall your way, but by no means was it ever a guarantee he would make it to campus.

Both Horns247 and HornsDigest are now saying Devonaire Clarington won't qualify. Higdon is saying the reports/rumours are accurate. Jeff Howe mentioned that Texas might try to get him back after a year of prep school and/or try a sign-and-place with a junior college.​
 
I'm not saying it's true, I don't know. Just posting this as a take-it-or-leave-it.

The problem is I think all the sites are basing his qualification on the fact that he started looking at junior colleges. Thing is that's fairly common for recruits that are grade risks. 

 

D'onta Foreman and Poona Ford did the same thing last year. Maybe they have other inside info, but it seems like they are basing these new reports on Clarington looking into JC's (which really doesn't tell me a thing, it's common).

While DeAndre McNeal gives up some height to Clarington, he also adds some agility and YAC advantage possibilities. McNeal could be a better blocker as well in the sense that he may have more of a take-one-for-team personality. (Pure conjecture on my part.)

    • Sounds like the 2019 class will be best evaluated in 2-3 years.
    • Marcel Brooks named LSU and Bama as his final two, I believe. From a poster on Geaux24/7 known as DD3 24, re Brooks. https://247sports.com/college/lsu/Board/59425/Contents/Will-four-star-linebacker-Marcel-Brooks-sign-with-LSU-Tigers-or-Alabama-Crimson-Tide-115385904?Page=2 "Like I've been posting, and sent info to certain people on here to pass along, he can't read, and is failing, is a cancer on the team, always in high gear, whether it's fighting with coaches or players on the sideline, or getting personal fouls, or grabbing girls in school, posting instagram pics of him and his GF in shower etc. goes nuts on the sideline and needs a handler, which is usually a assistant coach, and sent to emergency room after a precaution to check for concussion, and they did blood work. Not only pot in his blood... hmmm..., no wondered he has all that energy and erratic behavior. Coach still allowed him to play after all this( failing as well). Maybe he's not now.. ??... other teams heard this, and was waiting to use the info, so they finally had to kick him off the team for the last part of the season. But hey...... he's better now! He's back on the team."
    • I've been optimistic on the Steele recruitment but if we don't get an OV then it ain't happening IMO.
    • Set up his 4th OV to Florida.  Committing on September 27th.  Fingers crossed we get his last OV.
