  3. Four-star decommits from Trojans. Gamecocks pledge says he was at ‘The Wrong USC’ Oct. 19, 2018 South Carolina football had been in it with four-star recruit Chris Steele right up until the end. But in the end, the Southern California product picked the USC closer to where he lives. Until Thursday. Steele, rated the No. 42 player in the country by 247Sports, decommtted from Southern Cal. Soon after he did, Gamecocks pledge Cam Smith stepped in with an a few words about the news. Steele visited USC in the spring.

  4. ATH Quavaris Crouch says two tied at the top of his list OCTOBER 18, 2018 BY PHIL KORNBLUT LINK: SPORTSTALK Quavaris Crouch ATH Quavaris Crouch (6-3 222) of Charlotte remains one of the nation’s top prospects despite playing just one game this season. Crouch rushed for 3246 yards and 33 touchdowns and totaled 51 tackles and 14 sacks last season. But a high ankle sprain in game one ended his senior campaign. But the recruiting campaign storms ahead. Last Saturday Crouch was in the house at USC as the Gamecocks battled Texas A&M. Crouch had previously visited USC and Will Muschamp, Bobby Bentley and Travaris Robinson are putting forward their best effort with him. “Everything was good. I was mainly was there to see my lineman that played for me last year, Jovaughn Gwyn. I wanted to go see him,” Crouch said. “It wasn’t a lot of recruiting in it. I talked to Coach Muschamp and Bentley and all them. I got a good relationship with everybody on the staff. It was pretty fun.” Crouch again got the chance to talk face-to-face with Muschamp and the message remained the same. “Come somewhere where you can be the first, not the second, you know, where we could start something.” Crouch continues to refer to himself as an athlete but has pretty much made the decision to focus on linebacker in college, with a little running back thrown in for good measure when the opportunity allows. “For me, I think it’s a business decision I’m making, more longevity,” Crouch said. “I think it sets me up for the goal I’m having. I’m not saying I won’t ever run the ball again, I’m just saying I think I want to play linebacker. I do want to hop on the other side sometime. Some colleges tell me I can do both, have a package at running back. But it may be the other way around. You won’t never know until you get to school and find out I’m not as good as I thought I was going to be at this. I know I’m a good running back. I feel like at that position (linebacker) I’m kind of flexible because I’m big enough to play inside but I’m fast enough to get around the edge. It’s just kind of what their scheme is and how they want to handle it and then you go from there.” This Saturday Crouch will make a return trip to Clemson. He also visited in March and in late September for the Syracuse game. “Clemson has been a successful team, they always are going to be successful,” Crouch said. “I feel like they bring in good recruiting classes. I feel like that’s the most stable program that I am getting recruited by, honestly, other than Alabama. They’re stable. They are on top of things. They’re kind of solid. It’s not a lot of fixing to do. It’s a good program already, you just come in and do your part.” Clemson has told him he’s viewed as an athlete and they’ll figure out his position once he gets there. But again, he’s more included to play linebacker for Brent Venables. “Coach Venables is one of the smart defensive coordinators, he does a good job every year,” said Crouch. “I feel like they use their linebackers pretty good.” Crouch has a tentative lineup now for his official visits. He is planning to go to Michigan November 3rd for the Penn State game, to Clemson November 17th for the Duke game and to Alabama December 7th. He’s also planning officials to Southern Cal and Florida State. And, he’s got leaders at this point. “I would say Michigan is #1, but the weather is crazy,” Crouch said. “I feel like Michigan and Clemson are tied for #1.” Crouch said Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt has been in to see him and he’s expecting USC coaches to visit Friday. By the way, he has a brother who is a freshman at NC State so he’ll get the chance to watch him Saturday, but he said State is not a factor in his

  8. USC #Gamecocks one of the early offers for Tennessee corner OCTOBER 11, 2018 BY PHIL KORNBLUT Link: sportstalk De’Arre McDonald USC has a commitment out of Murfreesboro, TN for the 2019 class in DE Joe Anderson, who will visit Saturday for the Texas A&M game. And the Gamecocks’ area recruiter Bobby Bentley is now going after Anderson’s 2020 teammate cornerback De’Arre McDonald. Bentley recently offered and McDonald, with Anderson’s heavy influence, is looking hard at the Gamecocks. “Running back coach (Bentley) talked to me and said he had heard a lot about me and came to watch me play,” McDonald said. “After the game, Joe told me that they liked me and would be in contact soon. Two weeks later they offered me. It was unbelievable, it was crazy. He (Bentley) said he liked how I move and I have great size to be a corner and I move well. He said they want me to be a Gamecock.” McDonald recently visited Louisville and he has an offer from the Cardinals. He also plans to visit USC at some point. “I’ve been talking with Coach Bentley and he informed me they are giving me a full ride and really want me to come visit and start a bond with them and see how they are and get a feel for each other,” McDonald said. The Gamecocks have been attempting to upgrade at the corner position thru recent classes and McDonald is confident he could be an early contributor. He has three interceptions this season. “I’m an athletic player, I can make tackles in open field and I cover well,” he said. “I’m still working on my speed. I’m just an overall good corner, I do everything maybe better than what normal corners do.” As for his pal Anderson and his efforts to persuade him to join him in Columbia, McDonald said he’s listening. “He talks to me as much as possible, he tells me all the time to come and visit with him just to see how it is. He wants me to be on the same team. We talk here and there, we talk a lot. That’s my guy.” McDonald actually grew up in Detroit and is a fan of the Michigan Wolverines. He only recently moved to Tennessee so he’s not latched on to any one team in the SEC area, at this point.

  13. Perry reviews latest visit with the #Gamecocks OCTOBER 9, 2018 BY PHIL KORNBLUT LINK: SPORTSTALK Jalen Perry Cornerback Jalen Perry of Dacula, GA has been a prime USC target since before he decommitted from Georgia last week. And his first visit post-decommitment was Saturday to USC for the Missouri game. It was beneficial unofficial visit for Perry and Will Muschamp. “I had a great a great conversation with Coach Muschamp and Coach T-Rob,” Perry said. “I enjoyed the game. It was a big win for them. It was a great time and I had a great time while I was there. They just told me that they want me there, fitting in there with my versatility in the secondary and how long I am on the outside. They just think I’ll be a great fit in their system and they kind of broke down my film and told me that’s what they want me to be.” Perry has been to USC several times over the past two years. He visited for the Georgia game earlier this season, he made a camp appearance last summer, and he was in for two games in 2017. He knows well the Gamecock depth chart and his chance for early playing time. “I think there’s definitely opportunity there,” he said. “Both their corners this year are seniors and they’ll be moving on next year. So, the opportunity is there and I think I’ll work and compete with the guys that are there for that corner position, so that that’s what I’m coming in looking to do there.” Muschamp also knows what he’s losing at corner and that’s why he’s made Perry a high priority, a fact he’s shared with him. “He’s telling me I’m definitely important, definitely someone they want to help build depth,” Perry said. “They have young DBs and they want me to add to that list. I’m definitely important to them.” Perry will take an unofficial visit to Michigan this weekend and he also plans to visit Florida. He’s also considering Auburn.

  16.

And USC is one of the schools that could benefit. He visited for the Georgia game and is returning Saturday for the Missouri game. “I’m looking at some other schools right now, schools like South Carolina that have some interest in me and continue to recruit me throughout this process,” Perry said earlier this week. “I would say I’m definitely still looking for that best fit for me and my family, looking for the best situation. I’m just not sure where I’m going to end up right now.” Perry has a long-standing relationship with Gamecock head coach Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson. He has worked out privately for them at camp and he also visited for a pair games in the 2017 season. “Talk to them very often, multiple times per week,” Perry said. “I talk to those guys a lot about a lot of different things, just South Carolina in general and how they see me fitting in in their program. Those guys do a great job of always communicating with me and stuff like that. The Gamecocks are really high with me because I’ve always liked it in Columbia.” Perry said all of the exposure to Muschamp and the Gamecocks leaves him in a comfortable position with them when it comes to thinking about his future on the field. “I’m familiar with them and their coaching style and they are familiar with me and how I play,” he said. “They like long, physical corners. They say I have good height and size for the position. They like my ball skills and how I play the ball in the air. And my athleticism and man to man skills, they think I fit great great into their system and the style of corners that they are looking for.” Perry also has been to Georgia and Auburn and plans to visit Florida and Michigan. He said he will take all five of his official visits and USC will get one. At this point, Perry said, USC, Florida, Auburn and Michigan all are recruiting him hard. But, he said, the Gamecocks are making that extra effort. “I don’t think there’s another school that talks to me quite as much. The Gamecocks always show a whole lot of love.” Perry said his parents will join him on his visit to USC Saturday.

Most definitely I will be visiting.” Sanders said he does not yet have a date for his visit with the Gamecocks but said it would be soon. Some of Sanders’ other offers include Georgia, Oregon, Oregon State, SMU, Louisiana Tech, Texas A&M, Arkansas, UCF, Nebraska and Syracuse.

  22. South Carolina getting more than just talent with four-star lineman Sept. 24, 2018 MURFREESBORO, TENN. - It burned Oakland High School defensive lineman Joseph Anderson that he couldn’t play. The four-star South Carolina commit started his senior season at a new school with a bang, but a dislocated elbow first limited him and then put him out of commission. And that stung. “It’s not fun, because you’ve got to look at everybody else have fun and make plays,” Anderson said. “It’s not fun, but you can cheer on your teammates and build them up.” On Friday night, he still had on his elbow brace, and at points it still hurt. But he toughed it out in a 24-14 win against Blackman. After all, a region title was on the line. “Joe Anderson is a great human being,” Oakland coach Kevin Creasy said. “This guy makes a play the second play of the season on a Division I kid running a speed sweep outside, and he makes it from a shade technique, a 1-technique on the center.” That’s a 6-foot-4, 268-pound defensive end racing from just over the center to stuff a speed guy on the edge. Then came the dislocated elbow. Then came a game against the No. 1 team in the state. “He’s supposed to be out,” Creasy said. “And he comes back and plays for 20 plays just because he’s got a big heart.” He played the first halves of the first two games, then missed the next two. Coming back against an undefeated Blackman team, he played almost every snap. He also got a pair of visitors from the Gamecocks staff. Running backs coach Bobby Bentley was in during the day. Defensive tackles coach Lance Thompson started his day in Atlanta, but made it to the game Friday night. “It means a lot,” Anderson said. “That means he cares. He wants to see me grow. It was great seeing him here.” Creasy said the coaches had a message for Anderson. “They just wanted him to know that they were both here and it was to let Joseph know they came all this way just to let him know that they’re here, still following his high school career,” he said. “They want him to finish strong in high school, and he’s got plenty of time to worry about college. “They know that a lot of these big-time prospects would lay down and sit out, wouldn’t have dressed. Just for the injury part. Some would do it because they’re scared of the competition, but that’s what burns this guy from the inside out.” Anderson has been trying to work on growing as a leader as he goes through his senior season. He’s working inside with his high school team, but could be a hybrid end/tackle type in college. And he’s got big plans when he teams up with 2019 five-star classmate Zacch Pickens. “He’s physical,” Anderson said. “He’s a smart player. He’s aggressive at the point-of-attack. He’s just a player. He can ball.” “I think we’ll do well, tear up some backfields.” Visit plans Anderson aims to visit USC at least twice this season, for the Texas A&M and Tennessee games. He missed Georgia because of the SAT. He said he’d like to make it to Columbia at least once more before the Clemson game. Seeing a bright future Anderson called the current Gamecocks a young, growing team. He expects to reach the level of an SEC championship squad in coming years. He’s also been talking with classmates such as Ryan Hilinski, Cam Smith, Derek Boykins, Keveon Mullins, Keshawn Toney, plus Pickens. He also has taken a shot at recruiting the likes of four-star wide receiver Trey Knox, De’Arre McDonald, a 6-foot-2, three-star corner on his team. Other interest Anderson said most other schools stopped bothering him after he made his pledge to USC. The one exception is in-state Tennessee, which at least remains in touch. But he had a promise for South Carolina fans. “I’m 100 percent Gamecock,” Anderson said.

  24. Will Muschamp assesses South Carolina's recruiting needs, 2019 class Sept. 22, 2018 South Carolina coach Will Muschamp took some time to discuss his 2019 recruiting class during Thursday night’s “Carolina Calls.” “We feel really good about, No. 1, in our state — five young men we’ve offered all committed to us. We’re excited about that,” Muschamp said on his weekly radio show. Muschamp isn’t only focused on having the top-ranked recruiting class in the state, though. He also noted the Gamecocks’ need to explore more of Georgia, Florida and North Carolina, but he seemed pleased overall with South Carolina’s efforts so far. “I feel really good about where we are,” he said. “Recruiting is a marathon. You’ve got to continue to run the race, as you get into to December, obviously with the early signing day, then you focus on the guys that are maybe still out there in February.” The Gamecocks are certainly running well, as South Carolina’s most prized recruit thus far is five-star defensive end Zachh Pickens from nearby Anderson, S.C. The report also mentioned seven four-star prospects that are committed for 2019, including wide receivers Jamario Holley and Traeyvon Kenion, among others. The Gamecocks’ in-state class features Holley and Kenion, as well as Keshawn Toney, a three-star tight end out of Willison, S.C. According to the report, South Carolina currently holds the seventh spot for 2019 recruiting classes in the SEC. South Carolina isn’t currently ranked in the Associated Press Top 25, but as a dark-horse contender for the SEC East, they should be well on the way with a new batch of Gamecocks.
