Lateek Townsend just selected Clemson at the US Army All-American bowl game this afternoon. Townsend has been back and forth on making a decision and was apparently back and forth with his decision for months. Clemson won out in the end but maybe this was something foreshadowed months ago when Townsend committed to Clemson at a banquet that Clemson coach Dabo Swinney attended.
I'm sure USC will continue to talk with Clemson but for all parties involved, it may be best to move on and let Townsend head to Clemson. He certainly would have had a shot at immediate playing time here at USC as both starters graduate this year but some of these recruits have other reasons for heading to whichever school they select.
