Ray Ray McElrathbey, whose scholarship was not renewed in a sinister move by Clemson's Tommy Bowden, is headed to Howard University to continue his playing career.
McElrathbey gained custody of his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr in 2006 to get him away from a mother who was addicted to drugs and a father who was addicted to gambling. Last August he tore a knee ligament that required surgery. Then Bowden kicked him out the door in March.
McElrathbey reportedly considered Mississippi, Central Florida, North Carolina Central and Jacksonville State — where former Louisiana State quarterback Ryan Perrilloux now resides — before settling on Howard.
