The left-wing outrage mob that’s moved America’s Overton window further to the left than it’s been at any point in history has forced yet another NCAA football program to pull a scholarship offer from one of the best high school quarterbacks in the country after he sang along with rap lyrics in a social media video.
Late last year, Marcus Stokes, the 24th-ranked high school quarterback in the country, was committed to playing college football at the University of Florida before his scholarship offer was revoked in the wake of a manufactured social media scandal. This was after Stokes sang along with rap lyrics in a now-deleted 2-second video, quoting the phrase “welcome back, n—-.”
As National File reported at the time:
Stokes later issued an apology after the clip caused outrage. “I was in my car listening to rap music, rapping along to the words and posted video of it to social media,” Stokes wrote in a statement. “I deeply apologize for the words in the song which I chose to say.”
Though he had numerous outstanding offers from other Division 1 programs, those were revoked as well, and Stokes found himself without a college football destination, despite his status as one of the country’s top quarterback recruits.
Notably, Tim Tebow quarterbacked the Nease High School football team, where Stokes currently plays, earning All-American honors in his 2005-2006 senior season.
On January 24th of this year, Stokes announced that he’d received an offer to play ball at Albany State University, a historically black school (HBCU), located in Albany, Georgia. Within a week, that offer was revoked too, and now Albany State’s head football coach, Quinn Gray, is groveling to the outrage mob and issuing a public apology for offering Stokes a spot on the team, to begin with.
“Let me start with a humble apology,” Gray wrote. “An apology for not honoring the tradition and history of ASU and for letting many of you down,” adding that his “decision to speak with a student that did not meet your expectations was unacceptable.”
After repeatedly apologizing for the “impact” his offer to Stokes apparently had on the school, Gray wrote that Albany State’s “president has made it clear that my actions did not meet [the school’s] standards.”
“My action caused you to question my commitment to our institute and our ancestors. As the consequences go, I hope to find a way back into the ‘Ramily,'” Gray wrote in conclusion.
“Without a doubt, I will be all in. Go Rams.”
