In the latest episode of The Transfer, Tyler Gabbert's father informed Sporting News that Arizona, Arizona State, Clemson, Iowa, Louisville, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, and Arkansas State were all possible destinations for his son. Gabbert, the 6-0, 190 pound younger brother of first-round pick Blaine, was a nationally-ranked quarterback in the 2010 class but lost out on the quarterback competition at Missouri this spring.

But according to the Charleston Post and Courier, Clemson has absolutely no interest in obtaining Gabbert's services. Travis Sawchik even points out that bringing in Gabbert (a redshirt freshman heading into 2011) could end up hurting the Tigers in the recruitment of a top-ranked quarterback in the future. Head coach Dabo Swinney pulled in the No. 5 recruiting class last February according to Throw in the arrival of high-octane coordinator Chad Morris from Tulsa, and the Tigers seem like a great landing spot for a hot young prospect looking to gain the attention of the NFL.

Clemson has no interest in Tyler Gabbert

Maybe Tyler should research the possibility of playing at the Division 1 FCS level.  If he's as good as advertised, he would have no problem being a big fish in a smaller pond.  Hope my college, which has a winning reputation and long line of outstanding QBs, has made some sort of attempt to woo him over.  Of course, one would have to question his commitment because he asked for a release after losing out as the starting QB at Mizzou.  Does he have desire; or is he liable to cut and run everytime a set back smacks him in the face?
