The Woodbridge native Royster is no longer on the South Carolina roster.
What a difference a few years make. G.A. Mangus was arrested for public intoxication, their South Jersey booster slush fund was shut down (with of course, only a slap on the wrist from the NCAA as a result), and Tanner McEvoy is leaving the program as well. Wait, so you mean a football factory that never had any issues does not care about the well-being of its players? Well, I never!
In the meanwhile, Rutgers now has to contemplate the wisdom of going after Royster. He's presumably interested as a local who almost picked RU, and there's a hole in the roster at safety following Rashad Knight's transfer. A homecoming could make sense on many levels, but one remaining X-factor will be Royster's treatment of his widely-reported Type I Diabetes condition.
Update: it's official. Royster is coming home.
