It’s not often that an athlete ever transfers from one rival school to another.

It’s almost never happened between the University of South Carolina and Clemson. The only one to happen in recent memory is Kaleb Chalmers, who transferred back and forth between Clemson and USC about 100 times.

Josh Belk, an early enrollee at Clemson in Spring of 2018, was just granted a release by Clemson.

Multiple sources are claiming different reasons from family issues and homesickness, and some just say he didn’t like it. I’ve speculated the reasons on The Spurs Up Show, check it out here.

I do think it is naïve to believe that Belk is transferring just for one specific reason and that it has nothing to with Clemson and everything to do with the kid.

Belk is currently set to visit South Carolina and Georgia, according to the State Newspaper. There are also rumors circulating that the Lewisville grad will visit Tennessee. Homesickness isn’t likely playing a huge role if he does end up going to either Georgia or Tennessee.

Josh Belk is expected to go to South Carolina. He grew up a fan, and if it wasn’t for a poor senior season, he probably would’ve been a Gamecock. Belk’s effort just wasn’t there and didn’t dominate at the A level in South Carolina’s High School Football League. 24/7Sports made him a late addition to their list of 5-stars, but he was relatively regarded as a mid 4-star prospect.

Now, if Josh Belk came to USC and Muschamp and Co. fixed his motor, he could be a freak. Just imagine a combination of Zacch Pickens, Rick Sandidge, Josh Belk, and Savion Jackson/Joseph Anderson. That’s not even mentioning the other multiple quality players that Lance Thompson is starting to gather on the defensive line. It could be a very scary front to face for anyone.
