As Signing Day approaches, the disgraced midfielder of Nease High Marcus Stokes got a second chance to fulfill his college football aspirations. After a final season in which Stokes hit 2,672 yards, raced 496 yards and scored 28 touchdowns, the four-star (or 3-star, depending on your position) passer accepted the offer. from Billy Napier’s Florida Gators. Then at the end of the year, fingertips fumbling with the ball in the most teenage way possible by singing the N word on social media, leading to Florida rejecting his offer.

Props to Florida for that. We can’t let outside groups think the N-word truncation is a loophole. Gators was the best possible offer for Stokes, who attended the same school Tebow was famous for in the mid-2000s, but he was not a Tebow-level talent. Based on the hits he’s made, he’s likely to be a reliable pick for the Team of 5 program and a steal for the FCS program. Stokes gets offers from other Division I schools, but his most interesting pick might be from Albany State II Division.

According to Stokes, the Golden Rams coach visited Nease on Wednesday and his father seemed confused. “It is very unique. Very interesting,” Marcus’ father told Sports 247 by phone. “We didn’t expect this at all.”

What are the advantages of the State of Albany?

An HBCU School in Georgia The redemption offer for a white high school quarterback from Florida sounds like the plot of a Tyler Perry movie, but let’s not give him any ideas. Stokes sounds open to the move, but he may well be doing PR for himself. Most schools have been hesitant to invite Stokes since he slipped on social media, and the Albany State coach’s offer feels like Al Sharpton is inviting fighting figures to Sylvia’s on the 125th. to take a photo.

Instead of Last Chance U, we’ve got a Black Chance U on our hands in which Albany State acts as the magic negro trope in Stokes’ redemption story. Conversely, Albany State is a program looking for an edge, and a quarterback with a 3 or 4-star pedigree is a boon for everyone. Alas, Stokes actually committing to Albany State would be the upset of Signing Day. How would that work out? Who knows? Three-stars usually end up at schools like Albany State after they’ve used up their opportunities and Stokes has at least one more chance at a D-1 program if he’s got the talent to compete.

On the other hand, if Stokes hasn’t learned his lesson yet, he’ll definitely think twice before getting too comfortable and doing the same thing at any HBCU.
