Could it Happen?

Gamecock verbal commitment Noah Whiteside is in Clemson this weekend on his official visit and while most experts are saying he's a done deal to Columbia, that may not necessarily be the case anymore.

Could it happen?

After only committing to the South Carolina Gamecocks just weeks beforehand, could Greenville wide receiver Noah Whiteside actually be giving the Tigers a legitimate chance this weekend?

The answer is yes! "Noah Whiteside is 50/50 between Clemson and USC right now," said a source close to the Greenville football program late Friday evening.

This tends to agree with some of the reports released over the course of the last week, indicating that Whiteside was indeed still open to the recruiting process, even though he had pledged his commitment to Carolina just weeks ago.

Whiteside was easily the top receiver in the Palmetto state this past season, bringing in 86 receptions for 1770 yards and 20 touchdowns for the Red Raiders.

The bottom line here is that "Noah doesn't feel like he's necessarily committed to USC, even though he obviously committed a couple of weeks ago," added the source.

While this certainly does not mean that Noah Whiteside will not play football for the University of South Carolina, it does mean that he's giving Clemson one more opportunity to change his mind.

This is only the latest chapter in a roller coaster ride with Whiteside's recruitment. Just after the Shrine Bowl he was very honest in his assessment of both schools, even though he gave the Tigers the slight edge at the time.

He told us that he would likely change his mind several times before making an absolute decision. It now appears as though he going through that very process.

We'll see what happens come Sunday afternoon, but stay tuned, this one is just about to get interesting.
