Ray Ray Finds a New Home at Howard

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.

There was no sinister motive behind dropping Ray Ray's scholie. He was asked to leave b/c he wasn't fulfilling his end of the bargain. He was missing class and practice and the staff couldn't just let him do what ever he wanted. It had NOTHING to do with scholarship allotments.

Clemson did everything they could for Ray Ray for 3 years. Coaches went so far as to potentially foster his brother so he could stay at CU.

I've always enjoyed your site but the media have only gotten 5% of this story.
