    How Jamyest Williams coming to USC is impacting Gamecocks recruiting in Georgia June 08, 2018 ATLANTA When Jamyest Williams signed with South Carolina in February of 2017, the Gamecocks didn’t just land one of the top players from the state of Georgia who was ready to come in and make an immediate impact as a freshman. USC also secured a player who was a role model for other high school athletes in the Peach State. Williams coming to South Carolina is paying off as the Gamecocks continue to make recruiting in the state of Georgia a priority. South Carolina signed eight players from the state of Georgia for the class of 2018 and already has three commits from there for the class of 2019, including defensive end Rodricus Fitten. Fitten, who is from Atlanta, committed to USC during the 2017 football season. “With Jamyest going to South Carolina and the impact he had as a freshman it really impacted my decision,” Fitten recently told The State. Williams played in 11 games as a true freshman in 2017 and finished tied for eighth on the team in tackles with 38. He was also third on the team in interceptions with two, and he added a fumble recovery. Fitten is aiming to come in and have a similar impact as a freshman when he gets his opportunity in 2019. “I’m the type of player that is hard working and likes to be the center of attention, which is like I want to be the leader. I want to come in and try to get extra workouts and all of that stuff,” Fitten said. “My strengths are I feel home when I have my hand in the dirt or just rushing the passer.” In addition to Williams, Fitten also communicates regularly with USC sophomore receiver Randrecous Davis and freshman defensive lineman Kingsley Enagbare. Both players are from the Atlanta area. “It’s fun. I get to start talking back with the people that I used to look up to,” Fitten said. “One of the freshman that came in this year was Kingsley. I’ve known him since I was 11 years old. That chemistry goes way back for us.” Even though Fitten is committed to USC and has friends on the team it doesn’t mean other programs have stopped recruiting him. He holds offers from Florida, Tennessee, Nebraska and others and plans to visit Florida and Tennessee this summer, in addition to taking trips to South Carolina. But overcoming South Carolina’s lead for the three-star prospect, who is rated as the No. 440 overall player in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings will not be easy. Fitten has strong relationships with South Carolina outside linebackers coach Mike Peterson, offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon, defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson and head coach Will Muschamp. “They’re hard working. They’re good coaches. They’re worried about more than just football,” Fitten said. “South Carolina, it was different because they were one of the first schools to jump on me early and kind of build a relationship and bond with me. That made a big difference in my commitment.” THE STATE

    The exisiting population of bowls already struggle to select teams with winning records. This further dilutes the reward of being "bowl-bound" and the exclusivity of an "invitation". At this rate, in the not too distant future, there will be enough bowls so that everyone is invited. It will become like the participation trophy -- no one's left out, so no one's feelings are hurt.The only good news regarding this is that it appears Myrtle Beach is a lock to be one of the three cities to host one of the new bowls. Charleston, SC is also mentioned as being in the conversation.

    It was definitely easy to get excited about Smart and Herman, but I was genuinely having mixed feelings, But when WM landed the job and because I like defensive-minded HC's and I had really wanted Spurrier to bring him in the season prior to be DC. But with time to see him in action, last two years has totally turned around for me my thinking. Seems he is the man for the job. Anyway, WM hit the ground running in terms of hard work on the recruiting trail. Since then, hundreds of names of recruits have popped up on Tony's daily scoops. There have of course been some that have gotten away - Tindall, Thomas, Nasrildeen, etc. - but 2 names I remember from the beginning were Pickens and Savion Jackson, their class seemed so far away at the time. This is really the 1st class for this staff where there has been enough time to ID some guys early and build a relationship with them, and we're seeing it pay off in a major way. After the Gamecocks put up another 9+ wins this season, I don't see this train slowing down. Exciting times for Gamecock football.

    Why USC's 2018-19 basketball schedule is the toughest in the Frank Martin era June 07, 2018 It wasn’t the response a reporter was looking for, but Frank Martin used the question to push something off his chest. “I'm going to answer your question in a second,” said the South Carolina basketball coach, “but you said something that triggered something in my head.” This was late October 2017 and Martin, coming off a Final Four run, wasn’t happy with a narrative he saw circulating about his program. The Gamecocks, in his mind, were NOT set up with a soft non-conference schedule. “I'm just telling you, that insults me,” Martin said defiantly. “When people say I'm soft, or I like soft, that insults me. That insults my players.” If such a topic rises to the surface again this upcoming fall, Martin won’t have to be so defensive. Instead of his signature stare, he might just grin at a reporter – or tear up. USC’s 2018-19 schedule is about finished – and there’s nothing soft about it. In fact, it might just be the hardest Martin’s ever faced in his seven years in Columbia. The SEC on Wednesday announced each school’s league opponents for the upcoming season. South Carolina has home-and-homes with Georgia, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Missouri and Texas A&M. It hosts Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn and Ole Miss and it travels to Florida, Kentucky, LSU and Vanderbilt. (Dates, times and television information will be released later.) These 18 games are now added to the known portion of the non-conference slate. South Carolina will host Stony Book (Nov. 9), Norfolk State (Nov. 13), Virginia (Dec. 19), Clemson (Dec. 22), Coastal Carolina, travel to Michigan (Dec. 8), Wyoming and Oklahoma State (Jan. 26) and take on Providence (Nov. 16) and Michigan or George Washington (Nov. 18) at a neutral site in Connecticut. Of the 23 opponents listed above, 12 of them appeared in the NCAA tournament last year. They play Sweet 16 participant Texas A&M twice, second round finisher Tennessee twice and get first round finisher Missouri twice. There’s a chance, too, that they twice face national runners-up Michigan. Previous Martin teams never faced more than seven opponents in the regular season that appeared in the Big Dance the year before. Gary Parrish on Tuesday released his way-too-early Top 25 on CBSSports.com. Eight upcoming USC opponents are listed, including Tennessee (No. 3), Kentucky (4), Virginia (7), Auburn (10), Mississippi State (15), LSU (19), Michigan (21) and Clemson (24). Joe Lunardi’s lists 10 upcoming USC opponents in his latest 2019 NCAA tournament bracket projection on ESPN.com – Virginia (2-seed), Kentucky (2), Tennessee (2), Auburn (3), Michigan (4), Clemson (6), Florida (7), Mississippi State (7), LSU (8) and Oklahoma State (11). The Gamecocks (17-16 overall) beat three eventual Big Dance teams last season – Kentucky, Florida (away) and Auburn. Carolina is returning four starters, including All-SEC forward Chris Silva.

    Report: Two freshmen, including former top prospect, leaving South Carolina baseball June 15, 2018 A year after spurning the MLB draft to attend South Carolina, freshman outfielder Kyle Jacobsen's time with the Gamecocks is over. Jacobsen and fellow freshman Elijah Bowers will transfer from USC, John Whittle of The Big Spur reported Friday. Neither has said where they will go. Jacobsen entered the 2018 season as the jewel of coach Mark Kingston's first recruiting class in Columbia — the Acworth, Georgia, native was ranked as Carolina's top signee and considered a top-150 prospect in the MLB draft, but he turned down the opportunity to play pro ball to join the Gamecocks. In his freshman campaign, however, he rarely saw the field, making 27 appearances and seven starts, hitting .158 in 38 at-bats. Bowers, a catcher out of Charlotte, South Carolina, never made an appearance this season as senior Hunter Taylor and junior Chris Cullen took turns behind the plate. The Gamecocks' incoming recruiting class also includes an MLB draftee in Wes Clarke and a junior college commit in Luke Berryhill.

    Where South Carolina fans rank nationally in filling the seats May 28, 2018 South Carolina's fortunes on the football field have risen the past three years, going from three to six to nine wins. So it only follows attendance would also rise. USC saw a gain of 1,666 fans per home game from 2016 to 2017. South Carolina's average of 78,586 was 16th nationally, up from 17th a season prior. Williams-Brice (capacity 82,500) only got more than that 78,586 twice in 2016, the home opener and a late game against Tennessee. The best attendance days in 2017 were the home opener against Kentucky (82,493) and Clemson (82,908) to close the season. USC's one-year gain was the second-best in the SEC behind Kentucky's 2,825. Purdue had the biggest gain overall with 13,433. Overall, attendance was down nationally. THE STATE
