  11. Jadeveon Clowney rated top recruit since 2000. How USC’s current five-star stacks up November 03, 2018 South Carolina football got an all-timer of a recruit in Jadeveon Clowney in the class of 2011. It turns out, the Gamecocks got the top prospect of the recruiting ranking era according to one measure. 247 Sports released its all-time list of talent, dating back to 2000. Clowney came in at No. 1 on the list. Current Gamecocks pledge Zacch Pickens is No. 401 and on track to be South Carolina’s fifth-best since players have been ranked.

  12. Hilinski's regular season highlights now on HUDL Nov. 02, 2018 Ryan Hilinski #3 QB Orange Lutheran High School Orange, CA
  13. Gamecocks QB commits Hilinski and Doty finally meet, start building bond for future November 01, 2018 This meeting was supposed to happen in September, when South Carolina football hosted Georgia. But Ryan Hilinski, the Gamecocks’ four-star 2019 quarterback commit, had to go to Pullman, Wash., for a ceremony honoring his late brother. Myrtle Beach passer Luke Doty, the team’s 2020 commit, was still there, but the face-to-face for USC’s next two blue-chip passers had to wait. Until last weekend. “I was walking down the sideline and he touched my shoulder,” Hilinski said. “I turned around, I saw his face. It was pretty cool meeting him. I met his dad and I met a young lady that was with him as well. He’s a great kid. It’s a great family it seemed like. Whenever you have a kid like that, that you’re going to be competing with the next four years, it’s always going to make things easier.” There might be a natural inclination toward some sense of rivalry between quarterback recruits. There’s only one job they’ll be fighting over. Everyone thinks they’re good enough to take it. But these two seem to be fostering a good relationship. Before that Georgia game, Doty said he was looking forward to finally meeting Hilinski after communicating online. This season, Doty, the No. 6 dual-threat QB in the 2020 class, is connecting on 66.8 percent of his passes for 1,553 yards, 21 touchdowns and only two interceptions, with 322 yards on the ground. He’s led his high school team to a 7-0 record, with some games lost because of Hurricane Michael, averaging 39.7 points. Hilinski’s season has featured more adversity, as he’s lost 80 percent of his starting line and his top target. But he’s persevered to lead his team to the playoffs despite facing the top teams in the country, another top-10 team. He’s thrown for 2,641 yards, 26 touchdowns and ten interceptions, completing 64.5 percent of his passes. The pair are the fourth and fifth blue chip quarterbacks USC has recruited in the past five classes. When Jake Bentley moves on, one of them might soon enough find himself as the face of the program, though Dakereon Joyner or even Jay Urich could have a say there. Hilinski and Doty will be together in the QB room, fighting for the same job, supporting and competing with each other with a common aim in mind. “We know when we start building this bond, we’ve talked to each other, we just want to win for the program,” Hilinski said.
  14. Gamecocks still hunting corners Nov. 01, 2018 USC offered CB Maurice Gaines, a native of Sacramento who attends St. Thomas More Academy in Connecticut. He currently is committed to Arizona. Georgia Tech and Baylor are among his other offers. USC is showing some interest in CB Dontye Carriere-Williams of Independence JC, KS. He’s a native of Miami who transferred out of Wisconsin in August after spending two seasons there. He was just offered by Louisville and also has a Vanderbilt offer.
  15. Gamecocks had some big DL recruits visiting Saturday night. Trayvon Walker, UGA commit, (This one keep an eye on Gamecocks could still be in the future here) was visiting and Alex Burch 2020 kid was there too. Jakai Moore(OL) was hanging with Hilinski in the student section and was apparently having a good time. Rashard Cheney is supposedly on de-commit watch from Bama, too.
  16. #Gamecocks & #Clemson moving on big lineman OCTOBER 29, 2018 BY PHIL KORNBLUT LINK: SPORTSTALK Wisdom Asaboro (Christ School) DL/OL Wisdom Asaboro (6-8 275), a native of Nigeria who attends Covenant Day School in Matthews, NC has suddenly burst onto the recruiting scene. USC and North Carolina were his first offers and Clemson is also entering the fray. Asaboro visited USC this past weekend for the Tennessee game and is scheduled to visit Clemson this Saturday when the Tigers host Louisville. “Told me he had a great time,” said his coach Chris James. “I haven’t had a chance to talk to him too much. It’s real early in the process and he’s just trying to do some basic level introduction stuff where you find out more about the schools. He’s going to take his time and figure out what’s the best fit for him.” Asaboro also has offers from Duke, Georgia, Virginia Tech and Virginia according to his coach. He’s also been to Duke for a game. His coach adds that Asaboro is an excellent student. “Academics are very, very important to him,” James said. “The American colleges to him are fascinating. He’s trying to find the right academics for him and athletically he’s trying to do the same thing. He’s really looking at the full picture of the school. International programs are going to be important to him.” Bobby Bentley is recruiting Asaboro for the Gamecocks and he’s been in communications with the coach. And the recruiters are learning that Asaboro is definitely a sign and develop prospect. “With Wisdom being so raw, everybody knows it’s going to take him a little bit of time for him to lean the game,” his coach said. “I’m just telling people it’s not going to be an overnight thing where he’s going to get there and be your top guy. It’s going to be a process of taking some time to slow the game down and learn the game.” Asaboro plays defensive line for James but he projects for either the offensive or defensive line and there is no consensus among the recruiters about which position he would play. He also plays basketball. What’s also not known at this point about Asaboro is which class he will sign with. James said he can sign for the 2019 class but he does have the opportunity to return to high school for another season and sign with the 2020 class.
  17. Visitor notes from #Gamecocks Oct. 29, 2018 OL Jakia Moore of Nokesville, VA was back at USC for the Tennessee game. He took his official visit with the Gamecocks in April. He’s also been looking at Clemson, Penn State, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Miami and Florida. 2021 CB Emon Hill of Hoschton, GA visited USC Saturday for the Tennessee game. “The visit was great. The campus and facilities are top of the line. The fans are #1. I can see myself playing in Columbia.” Hill has not yet landed offers but he’s also getting interest from Mississippi State, Louisville, Oregon State and Kentucky. He is going to Tennessee November 3rd and Notre Dame the next weekend. 2021 ATH TreVeyon Henderson of Hopewell, VA was in for a visit at USC Saturday. “I had a great time there, they have very nice facilities and a lot of fans. They talk very highly of me, they like my speed and how aggressive I am. They’re talking about offering me sometime around the end of my season.” The Gamecocks like him as a safety. He’s also getting interest from Indiana and Michigan and he’s planning visits to Virginia, Temple and Cincinnati. 2021 LB Dameon Wilson of Kings Mountain, NC has a USC offer and was back Saturday night for his second game of the season. He also was in for the Georgia game. “It’s a great school and I love the environment the fans make.” He also has an offer from North Carolina and has visited there. He also went to Clemson for the Syracuse game. Two of his teammates in the 2021 class, WR Kobe Paysour and DE Javari Wilson also visited. Some other confirmed visitors at USC Saturday were ATH Janaz Sumpter of Carvers Bay, Georgia commitment DL Travon Walker of Thomaston, GA, 2020 CB Christian Miller of Hilton Head, 2021 LB Nicholas Fairweather of Orleans, ONT and 2022 DB Marquis Killebrew of Snellville, GA.
  18. Mullins ATH has caught Muschamp’s eye #Gamecocks OCTOBER 28, 2018 BY PHIL KORNBLUT LINK: SPORTSTALK Xavier Legette USC coach Will Muschamp loves to uncover hidden gems within the state, players who are not heavily recruited but who he feels can be developed into winners with the Gamecocks. He’s found another in the 2019 class in Mullins ATH Xavier Legette (6-3 190). Legette visited USC for the Tennessee game and might eventually call Columbia home. “I feel like I fit in pretty good with them” Legette said. “The quarterback throws the ball pretty well. I just need to work on my route running a little bit so I can get open.” Legette plays quarterback for the unbeaten Auctioneers but said the Gamecocks like him primarily as a receiver though he also talked Saturday with defensive coordinator and secondary coach Travaris Robinson about playing over there. Legette also met with Muschamp in his office and got an offer from the Gamecocks’ head man, though it came with a twist. “He was telling me about how my recruiting process going,” Legette said. “He said I’ve got a full scholarship offer from there right now but as of right now I can’t enroll in June. “I have to enroll August 1st when the school starts because he doesn’t have enough (scholarship) numbers right now. He put me on the scholarship with the 2020 class.” Legette said that arrangement is fine with him though he wasn’t prepared to say yes right away. He also has an offer from Coastal Carolina and is hearing from Georgia State and Wake Forest. He also has been to Coastal Carolina and Georgia State for games. “I’m still looking around to see what other opportunities come, and I’m trying to wait a little more to make sure everything is good schoolwise.” Legette said he won’t take too long to make a decision and he plans to return to USC for the Tennessee-Chattanooga game.
  19. A personal loss, a huge game and a red eye: Ryan Hilinski makes it to Columbia October 27, 2018 Say this for South Carolina quarterback commit Ryan Hilinski, it took a little something extra for him to make it to Columbia this weekend. The four-star quarterback from California had death in the family during the week and a schedule that wasn’t the most conducive to making the trip. But he’ll be in Williams-Brice Stadium to watch Gamecocks football take on the Volunteers. Hilinski had been scheduled to visit in September, but instead went to Pullman, Wash., to honor his late brother Tyler. The family suffered another loss this week, as his mother’s father passed away. When Ryan Hilinski picked USC, it was on a trip to Hawaii to spread Tyler’s ashes at the same spot the family spread his grandmother’s, the nana Kelly Hilinski mentioned in his message. Friday night, Ryan Hilinski led his Orange Lutheran squad against powerhouse Mater Dei, the No. 2 team in the country that knocked off blue chip factory IMG Academy earlier this year. After the 45-7 loss, which would’ve ended past midnight on the east coast, the Hilinskis set off on the journey. Ryan Hilinski chronicled the trip on social media. A 30-plus mile drive to the airport, a red eye flight from Los Angeles to Charlotte, and finally a morning flight into Columbia.
  20. Gamecock running back commit goes for career-high six touchdowns October 27, 2018 Kevin Harris scored early and often Friday night. The South Carolina running back commit had a career-high six touchdowns in helping Bradwell Institute (Ga.) to a 41-14 win over Brunswick. Harris finished with 202 yards on 26 carries and went over the 1,000-yard mark for the second straight season. It was the sixth time he has rushed for more than 200 yards in a game and second one this season. For the year, Harris has rushed for 1,168 yards and 19 touchdowns. Class of 2019 quarterback Ryan Hilinski had a 20-yard touchdown pass but it was his team’s lone score as Orange Lutheran lost to second-ranked Mater Dei, 45-7. Hilinski was 18-of-37 for 149 yards. Orange Lutheran finishes the regular season at 5-5 and likely will get an at-large berth in the playoffs, according to the Orange County Register. Hilinski, whose grandfather died this week, is scheduled to visit South Carolina this weekend for the Tennessee game. Class of 2020 quarterback commit Luke Doty helped Myrtle Beach stay unbeaten and keep hopes alive of winning a region championship with a 17-14 win over rival North Myrtle Beach. Doty was 23-of-37 for 202 yards and two touchdowns and interception. He also rushed for 41 yards on seven carries. Myrtle Beach, ranked No. 3 in Class 4A, can win Region 6-4A title next week with a win over No. 1 Hartsville. A day after receiving his jersey for the Under Armour Game, 2019 commit Zacch Pickens added to his TD total Friday night. Pickens rushed for a score as TL Hanna defeated Woodmont, 41-7, to finish off an unbeaten regular season. Class of 2019 Devontae Davis (Georgia Military) – Plays Army Prep on Saturday.

  21. USC commit Zacch Pickens got his jersey, got to share moment with someone important October 25, 2018 .mcclatchy-embed{position:relative;padding:40px 0 56.25%;height:0;overflow:hidden;max-width:100%}.mcclatchy-embed iframe{position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%} ANDERSON, S.C. - Five-star South Carolina football commit Zacch Pickens sat in front of an Under Armour backdrop Thursday morning, ready to receive his All-American jersey in T.L. Hanna High School weight room. He was flanked by graphics of NFL stars Leonard Fournette and Julio Jones. Beyond them, he had his high school teammates in the gallery. But next to him, he had someone more important flanking him: his mother, Felicia Harris “It’s a huge honor,” Pickens said of having his mom by his side. “I respect my mom. I’d do everything I can for my mom, and I’m glad she’s here. “(She’s) been very important. I’ve tried a lot do a lot of things without her, but it’s hard.” T.L. Hanna High Zacch Harris received the UnderArmour All-American jersey in a ceremony at the school. His mom, Felicia Harris, was by his side. 10/25/18 Tim Dominick tdominick@thestate.com Pickens, a five-star recruit, is one of 90 players going to the Under Armour game and got his jersey during a ceremony at his school. His coach, Jeff Herron, introduced him by saying it takes a village to raise a young man, and delivered a hefty helping of credit to Harris. Moments after her son got his jersey, she was handed an award as a person important in his life. She admitted she was shocked when she got the small honor, but mostly focused on what she felt about the day. “I’m super duper proud,” Harris said. “I would’ve never imagined this happening. I’m just proud of him. He’s a good kid. I can’t complain. I’m excited.” She made sure to credit the Hanna coaches for helping her keep him on the right path. “I’m a single parent, mom, so I depend on the coaches to have my back on certain things,” Harris said. “Make sure anything he’s missing or slipping in class or whatever, got my back. I truly say they have my back 1,000 percent.” They, in turn, credited her for acting as a team mom of sorts. “Miss Felecia has done a great job with him,” Herron said. “She’s raised him pretty much by herself, I guess. He is such a good kid because she is such a good lady. She’s taught him right and wrong and to be humble and all those things. “I was talking to coach (Will) Muschamp the other night. He came to our game and he talked about how good she had been during the recruiting process, that wasn’t typical for a recruit’s mother. But that’s the kind of family they are.” The coach added the level-headed Pickens and his mother never let the recruiting process get to him, never bought the hype like many athletes can. Harris said he’s always been a quiet kid, and he hasn’t changed much as a person through his high school years. Herron took over before Pickens’ junior season, and the team is 20-1 since then. The 6-foot-5, 268-pound defensive lineman is one of the crown jewels of South Carolina’s recruiting class. The team’s first five-star since Jadeveon Clowney in 2011, he’s the No. 17 player in the country according to the 247 Sports composite rankings, tops at his position and in the state. This season, Pickens hasn’t put up dominant rushing stats, but supplied a different sort of strong numbers. As a defensive lineman, he’s leading the Yellow Jackets with 52 tackles, plus three sacks, despite facing double- and triple-teams on most plays. That’s for a defense allowing 11.5 points per game.
  22. Latham to visit #Gamecocks next month; USC offers former Miami Oct. 25, 2018 Newly offered 2020 DE Jah-Marien Latham of Reform, AL said he will visit USC November 17th.

  23. All systems go for Hilinski to the Gamecocks October 24, 2018 Wednesday is South Carolina quarterback commit Ryan Hilinski’s birthday. And he has another present for Gamecock fans. Hilinski affirmed his commitment with the Gamecocks, according to the Sports Talk Radio Network, and will be in town this weekend when USC hosts Tennessee. Hilinski, who is from Orange, California, received an offer this month from home-state Stanford, and this set off a familiar cycle of angst for many Gamecocks fans. A day ago he teased via social media an announcement of sorts that would come Wednesday. The four-star passer, a top-50 player nationally by the 247Sports composite rankings, committed to the Gamecocks in April and has since seen his recruiting stock take off. That’s meant more big-name offers, each one sending a segment of fans into a panic that he’ll leave the class. It happened with Ohio State, Southern Cal, LSU and then the Cardinal. After the LSU offer came, he explained the reason he took the time to shout out the schools that offered on social media, despite being a firm Gamecocks pledge. “It’s just out of respect to them that I post the offer,” Hilinski said. There were reports the offer from Stanford was a “dream offer,” though he’d have to delay his enrollment schedule if he had flipped his commitment. He’s set to graduate in December and Stanford doesn’t take mid-year players. He’s said throughout the process he’s a firm USC pledge and often tells reporters about talking to quarterbacks coach Dan Werner and coach Will Muschamp. Hilinski is supposed to visit Columbia this week for the Tennessee game. He will play in two all-star games: the Pro Football Hall of Fame World All-Star Bowl on Dec. 22 at Azul Stadium in Mexico City, as well as the All-American Bowl in San Antonio on Jan. 5. The early signing period begins Dec. 19. This season, he has thrown for 2,458 yards and 27 touchdown
  24. It seems like we don't have much momentum with anyone in particular. Should we be hearing some new names pop up soon? Who do you think we end up with? DL - Sorrells OL - Moore DB - Shilo Sanders & Jalen Perry? Not sure on the last guy. Also - Holley’s spot is rumored to be in Jeopardy so there’s that and no one is sure if we replace him with another receiver or another Defensive person...
