A day after posting that he would not lose to Clemson, South Carolina quarterback commitment Dakereon Joyner offered a response.
On Wednesday morning, Joyner shared on Snapchat that he’d promised himself that he would not lose to Clemson, as South Carolina’s starting quarterback. The 4-star quarterback took to Twitter on Thursday night, to clarify what he meant.
“I apologize for anyone who was offended by the state I made yesterday. I made a promise to myself,” Joyner wrote in an attachment to a tweet. “If I wanted to throw shots, I would have directly said it to a fan, player or Clemson football player.
“It was completely out of my character to say what I said. Some people took it the wrong way and that wasn’t my intentions. I do apologize again. I am confident in my future squad. I also am confident in what I said. I ‘m looking forward to competing (versus) Clemson in the near future.”
Joyner, a 4-star recruit out of Fort Dorchester High School in North Charleston, S.C., is committed to enroll at South Carolina in January.
Alabama, North Carolina State, Oregon and Virginia Tech were among the others schools that offered him a scholarship to play quarterback. Clemson offered as an athlete.
