Steve Spurrier is apparently in a pretty good mood these days. Just a few days after news came down that defensive back Victor Hampton had been kicked off the Gamecock football team comes multiple reports that the Head Ball Coach has decided to let the redshirt freshman return.
Hampton was dismissed for what the team termed a violation of team rules. According to sources Hampton was struggling academically and was not showing up for the voluntary team workouts.
The BigSpur is reporting Spurrier met with Hampton and his parents and together they came up with a new set of guidelines for Hampton to follow. The report said Hampton signed a contract stating he would do what is asked of him from this point forward.
The fate of defensive back DeVonte Holloman is still in the air. He was arrested last week and charged with DUI. Per athletic department rules he is suspended indefinitely until the school can sort through the legal issues. Holloman has a clean record and is one of the hardest working players on the team so it would be surprising if he is not back sooner rather than later.
