Kelcy Quarles’ dad: DT leaving Gamecocks for NFL at season’s end

Blake Bortles, Kelcy Quarles AP

Barring an absolutely unforeseen chain of events, South Carolina will lose Jadeveon Clowney to early entry into the April 2014 NFL draft. Around the same time, and barring a change of heart, the Gamecocks will lose another standout member of its defensive line as well.

The father of Kelcy Quarles confirmed to the long-held speculation that his son will be leaving collegiate eligibility on the table in order to begin his professional career a year early. Buddy Quarles said the decision came after the defensive tackle and the coaching staff discussed the issue and decided this would be the best course of action for the younger Quarles to take.

“I think they all came to that conclusion,” Buddy Quarles said. “They had a good assumption that he’s going to be leaving.”

The elder Quarles said his son will submit his paperwork to the NFL Draft Advisory Committee in the next week or two. As if putting an exclamation point on the impending ending of his playing career, Quarles will walk with the seniors during the final home game of the year vs. Clemson the last weekend of this month, the father said.

This season, Quarles is tops on the Gamecocks with 11 tackles for loss and seven sacks. The latter number is good for third among SEC defensive players.

    Quarles easily has had the best season of any Cock. With the team’s expectations for next season, who can blame him? Troubled past and an extremely bright future. Good luck.

    jonkybon once again proves his 9th grade education at Pickens Jr High has him delusional. ” With the team’s expectations for next season”? Fewest seniors in the country and with solid recruiting classes, the expectations of the press, coaches, players and fans are high for next year and beyond. Typical paper tater reaction. We WILL be expecting win # 6 over the Clempson Taters in 2014!! Maybe best year of any defensive player, but Davis and Shaw (you know the senior QB who has NEVER lost to Clempson), among others, are doing pretty darn good.

    The Connor Shaw that has his own private rooms reserved at Richland Memorial and Lexington County Hospitals from being thrown under the bus so many times by the Ole Drunk Ball Sack? That Shaw? The Shaw that has almost as many yards rushing as throwing Shaw? Isn’t he the lowest rated QB of all SEC schools with winning records?

    South Crapolina hasn’t recruited badly, but hasn’t had a class ranked higher than UGA in FOREVER. The same Jailcocks that have the lowest qualifying rate of any SEC school and still ranked lower than UGA, UF and Mizzou last year?

    The same institution that has the second oldest HC in the NCAA football? The same HC that appeared on TV drunk off his ass? The same HC that has never taken personal responsibility for anything. Instead he blames teenagers and staff members for everything. The same PUSSY HC that is too afraid to schedule a decent program with his three at large games every year?

    Are you talking about the same Lamecock program that issues rings for fifth and sixth place finishes since the Drank knows they are nothing but blowhards and pretenders? The same program that ESPN and Bleacher Report claimed had the easiest Division 1 schedule, but still lost to an unranked program?

    BTW, I believe personal insults at other posters are a TOS violation. Aren’t they? When you come to the table totally empty handed, insult insult insult. Let me guess, most Cock lovers are Democrats as well.

    Can any Cock fan ever have a civil discussion without having to resort to insulting the other poster?

    I doubt it also.

    Jonkybon calling anyone insulting is comical. He is the worst offender on this site. Plus almost all, if not all, of his comments are fabrications and based on non facts. He is to be ignored and thrown out with the rest of the trash.

    Slurrier drunk:

    2013 recruit ranking:

    To see how many qualified each year, compare the roster of commitments to the team roster. I didn’t save the Bleacher Report article that ranked/listed SEC recruits/qualify. It was eye opening.

    Ball Sack gets tried to get reporter fired for telling the truth:

    Spurrier blames Shaw:

    Do I need to prove SC is currently on probation again for recieving improper benefits at the Whitney? Google it. They also lost 9 scholarships as part of the NCAA sanctions.

    Unlike a certain individual that can’t make a post without taking a shot at me, I can prove EVERYTHING I post.

    As for being the worst offender: Our posts speak for themselves. I’ve never had a post removed from

    Your still here? You may go now.

  8. jets12 says: Nov 8, 2013 1:34 PM

    Oh and by the way jonkybon, in past posts you have said that you know me personally, you know my mom personally, you talk to my mom regularly, you have said that I am wanted by law enforcement for some unmentioned reason, and you claim that I post under different names. These are a few of the blatant lies you have posted.

    Now do you still want to claim you can prove everything you post? Let’s start with an easy one. If you know me personally then post my name. First name, last name or both. Go ahead. I give you permission. If you can’t then you really have lied about me. And we both know you have.

  9. jets12 says: Nov 9, 2013 1:58 PM

    I thought so. Silence. Well you have proven what I have been saying. Liar and coward. Jonkybon you are nothing but a blowhard.

  10. jonkybon says: Nov 10, 2013 10:21 PM

    The only liar is you Kevin. Your laundry list is mostly fantasy. I am in law enforcement and I have spoken with your mother and brother (once, not regularly). Your name is Kevin Tarrant. The last time I discussed you with a Ranger, since you were from Houston, was over a year ago. I never said you were wanted. In fact, no one wants any part of you. Sorry, unlike you, I have a life and only read and/or post here two to four days a week.

  11. jonkybon says: Nov 10, 2013 10:23 PM

    Now you will claim that wasn’t you, but we both know it is.

  12. jets12 says: Nov 11, 2013 7:57 AM

    Sorry jonkybon. Again you are a liar. I have no idea who this
    Kevin Tarrant is, but it most certainly is not me. I don’t have a brother and I have never been to Houston. Whatever “job” you have in law enforcement hasn’t done much to sharpen your skills but I suspect that your “job” is that of a security officer. Nothing wrong with being a security officer but it hardly qualifies as law enforcement. But hey, if I ever do commit a crime and someone is chasing me, I hope to God it is you. I would like my chances against your “law enforcement” skills. You really are just so incredibly stupid.

    You see all you are is a delusional liar. You don’t know me and your pathetic claims just show how stupid and ignorant you really are. Do yourself and the rest of us a favor and just go away. Kevin Tarrant? Never heard of him and my guess is neither have you. Just another made up name in that perpetual fantasy mind of yours.

    Oh and we can add another lie to the many that you have told. You said that you would never directly address me again. Just couldn’t help yourself could you. Once again got you. But then again you make it sooooo easy.

  13. jonkybon says: Nov 11, 2013 10:26 AM

    So predictable and full of crap. We both know I’ve told nothing but the truth. As every one else realizes, you wouldn’t have your panties so wadded if it weren’t. Do worry Kev, one day you might get the Silver Cloud Singers back together…LOL, just kidding as the rest hate you also.

  14. jets12 says: Nov 11, 2013 12:13 PM

    You may be the the biggest most delusional person on the planet. Not only am I not this Kevin Tarrant person you claim I am and not only have I never been to Houston, I have never been to the state of Texas. You are a either a pathological liar or the dumbest person to ever exist. I think you are both by the way. I can only imagine the pain and torture you must go through each and every day knowing that there is absolutely no one on this planet that is dumber than you are. All you have done is confirm that you are a liar and a coward. Nothing you post can be taken seriously and your credibility, not that you ever had any, is non existent.

    And your infatuation with all that is Steve Spurrier is kind of strange also. I really believe that you are in love with him in some psychotic way. Look to each his own but as far as I can tell the man is happily married and content with his life. You not so much. Look there are web sites out there if you feel the need for some male companionship. No need to post your frustrations on this web site for all the world to read. But as we know your personal frustrations are the least of your problems.

  15. jonkybon says: Nov 11, 2013 11:13 PM

    Since I have proven everything I post except your info, which you have unwittingly validated. You are the liar and coward. You’ve never proven anything, because you can’t Kevin. You are who you are.
