When a 4 star recruit transfers after one season the readers, or most of them would like to know why. If he were to have been a 2 star or maybe even a 3 star recruit who cares. This guy was a 4 star recruit and a defensive back to boot. Was it academics? Were the coaches pushing him to play to his potential? Just why would you up and leave a great place like Clemson? Let me be cynical as long as I am complaining. If he doesn’t want to be there then don’t let the door hit you in your hinny as you leave.

I really was rooting for him a Tankersley to be a good solid one-two punch in that defensive backfield. To come in as the No.10 safety in the nation should have shown up on the field at some point. Its disappointing because he has good size and range and it would have helped strengthened that area of our defense even more. I really wonder what happend?

Again, Star rankings are only good to rank them in High School. He was a big fish in a little pond but when the pond got bigger with as big or bigger fish then results start to show. He also saw the recruits brought in from last year and just doesn't measure up. When you finally have to compete with the same level of talent across the board then a recruit has to make a decision to stay or move on. All I can say is good luck and focus on the education first.
