Gamecocks' lands veteran ACC receiver via transfer portal



Gamecocks' has been looking into the NCAA Transfer Portal for some immediate help at wide receiver, and new coach Shane Beamer has hit on a player he must think can contribute in 2021. Thursday former Georgia Tech WR Ahmarean Brown (5-10 170) announced on his Instagram and Twitter pages that he will transfer to USC.

Brown is a native of Tampa and a graduate of Jefferson High School, the same school that produced former Gamecock quarterback Stephen Garcia.

Brown played two seasons at Tech coming on board when the new coaching staff there was hired. This past season he caught 11 passes for 183 yards and 1 touchdown. As a freshman in 2019, Brown caught 21 passes for 396 yards and tied Calvin Johnson for the most receiving touchdowns as a freshman with seven.

In two games in his career against Clemson, Brown had 2 catches for 30 yards.

At Jefferson High School, Brown caught 74 passes over his final two seasons for 1348 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was rated a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite as a high school senior.

Brown used two years of eligibility at Tech, but of course, the 2020 season doesnโ€™t count again him, some heโ€™ll come to Columbia with three years to play if he so chooses. He is expected to enroll at USC in January and participate in spring practice and will be eligible to play in 2021.

This is what we will be eeing over the next months - key pieces coming via the portal.

Two of the best WRs isrecent NFL history - Calvin Johnson and Demarius Thomas - came from GT with their triple option. If this guy tied Calvin Johnson's Freshman record for receiving TDs, he is a keeper.

Plus he has 4ย to play 3, unlike a grad transfer (remember this year did not count). But we need to be careful - remember that our underclassmen can also leave without sitting out a year.
