  4. Tuesday morning recruiting report July 23, 2019 USC is one of the final four with SAF Ja’Qurious Conley of Jacksonville, NC. He has an official visit with the Gamecocks set for the Alabama game. This weekend he plans to visit unofficially either Virginia Tech or North Carolina, depending on his father’s availability to travel. Duke is the fourth school on his list. QB Shedeur Sanders of Cedar Hill, TX plans to visit Florida State this weekend. He has a USC offer, his brother is a freshman DB with the Gamecocks, and he’s the son of Deion Sanders. 2021 RB Evan Pryor of Cornelius, NC plans to visit Oregon this weekend. He has an offer from USC. A new 2021 prospect to watch for in the state is DL Kaseem Vauls (6-1 240) of Irmo. He started last season for Vance High in Charlotte and had 11 sacks and 12 tackles for loss. Vauls said he’s drawing interest from Clemson, Notre Dame, Duke, Hawaii, Michigan State and Gardner-Webb. And he attended a camp at USC. Clemson will hold its annual All-In Cookout Friday night. Paul Strelow of TigerIllustrated reported that Hammond DE Jordan Burch and his mother plan to attend.
  5. A new name to add to USC’s recruiting board for the 2021 class is WR Adonai Mitchell July 23, 2019, | sportstalk.com A new name to add to USC’s recruiting board for the 2021 class is WR Adonai Mitchell (6-3 187), formerly of Houston but now living in Antioch, TN just outside of Nashville. Mitchell is a member of the National Playmakers Academy (NPA), an organization that works with football players in the Nashville area on and off the field in helping them earn scholarships, and it’s a group that has sent players to USC. Mitchell said the Gamecocks made the offer thru the NPA’s founder and CEO Buck Fitzgerald. He has yet to talk to the Gamecocks’ area recruiter Bobby Bentley about the offer, but plans to do so as soon as possible. Mitchell has been rehabbing a hip injury this summer and that limited his ability to get to camps and seven on seven events. But he did travel with his team to USC for a seven on seven in June where he got a chance to see the facilities and talk with some coaches. “I wasn’t able to play and the coach (Bryan McClendon) wasn’t able to see me in action in person,” Mitchell said. “They already knew who I was. Fast forward a little bit, my recruiter (Fitzgerald) sent some videos to the coach and the very next day he called me and said South Carolina had just offered based off the videos. I was pretty excited.” The Gamecocks join Tennessee and Kentucky as the major offers for Mitchell at this point. “I feel good,” Mitchell said. “I’m just like, all my hard work is paying off. Coaches are starting to open their eyes. They like how explosive I am. They like how I can make plays with ball. They like my yards after catch. They like my speed and I can make big plays.” Mitchell also visited Tennessee this summer for a camp. He also visited Tennessee and Georgia Tech in March. He said he plans to visit USC again early in the season, perhaps for the first home game. Last season Mitchell had 25 catches for 378 yards and 3 touchdowns, and he scored another 5 touchdowns on the ground.
  6. Who needs to emerge for the Gamecocks this fall?

  7. Who needs to emerge for the Gamecocks this fall? July 23, 2019 To survive a difficult 2019 slate with success, the Gamecock football program needs to have a few players step forward to provide more production at key spots. Which players will we keep a close eye on in that regard? • The player: Safety Jamel Cook The reason: Now that projected two-deep member Jaylin Dickerson is shelved for the season with an injury, Cook’s role becomes even more important. Starter R.J. Roderick has also worked at nickel and could get a look at starting there. USC’s thinner without Dickerson, but Roderick, J.T. Ibe, and Jamyest Williams are all players who will factor in at the position. Cook has plenty of physical talent but needs to become more consistent; Will Muschamp recently praised his progress in that regard. If he could rise to win a job, it would give USC more flexibility. At a minimum, being a guy the staff could count on to play quality snaps would be significant. • The player: Running back Rico Dowdle The reason: By now, our readers know that USC’s running back room could have a different look once preseason camp rolls around. Dowdle missed the spring with an injury, and that’s been one of the biggest hindrances to his progress in Columbia. He’s shown flashes of his talent and has multiple games with very good production. Yet for this offense to take another step forward, USC needs a healthy and consistent Dowdle to improve the running game. He’s the most talented on the current roster when he’s fully healthy. • The player: Wide receiver Josh Vann The reason: The top two receivers on this squad are obvious – Bryan Edwards and Shi Smith. Vann is currently battling it out with veteran Dreak Davis for the final starting slot. Regardless, he’ll see plenty of time in 2019. Vann had a rough end to his true freshman season, but he has a lot of talent and was a big-time recruiting acquisition for the USC staff. Plenty of attention will be focused on Edwards and Smith, and Vann must be ready to answer the bell when his number is called.
  8. Yes I hope we can use Joyner make some big plays running the ball in a wildcat along with the progress of Urich at WR. Hope we can stay healthy in the backfield.

  10. Football 7/22/2019 11:25:00 AM Brunson Named to Butkus Award® Watch List Senior Linebacker Considered Among Nation’s Best University of South Carolina senior T.J. Brunson was named to the 2019 preseason Butkus Award®, which honors the nation's best linebacker, it was announced today. The watch list contains 51 linebackers, mirroring the legendary "51" pro jersey associated with the Award's namesake Dick Butkus, who was recognized by NFL Films as the best defensive player in football history. 2019 marks the 35th annual selection of the prestigious award. Brunson, a 6-1, 230-pounder from Columbia, S.C., is one of the leaders of the Gamecock defense and an all-star candidate in his final campaign for the Garnet & Black. The first recruit Coach Muschamp visited after being hired, Brunson has collected 206 career tackles over his three-year career, including 15.0 tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks. He has started every game over the past two seasons for the Gamecocks. Semi-finalists for the Butkus Award® will be named November 4, finalists November 25, and winners on or before December 10. Appearing on the watch list is not a requirement to win the award. Formed in 1985, the Butkus Award® was expanded in 2008 to honor linebackers at three levels while supporting causes important to the Butkus family. They include the I Play Clean® initiative promoting training and nutrition instead of performance-enhancing drugs, and the Butkus Takes Heart™ initiative encouraging early cardiovascular screening among adults. The Butkus Award®, www.thebutkusaward.com and on Facebook at 51.butkus, is presented by the nonprofit Butkus Foundation. Selectors and selection criteria are located on the official website. Search social media for #butkusaward2019. The Butkus Award® is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA) which encompasses college football's most prestigious awards. NCFAA's 25 awards have honored more than 800 recipients since 1935. Visit www.NCFAA.org for more
  11. Players report next Thursday. First practice is in 11 days (next Friday). Love the kickoff of fall camp. Time to separate the men from the boys and find out who REALLY wants to play.
  12. Kendall Milton is deciding in a week, Tank is just waiting on that decision in my opinion. If Milton picks the dawgs (which should probably happen) then I do not think he's going to end up there with him, which is why he would be taking those final two visits to really make a final decision. We've been recruiting Tank the longest out of the three and I think thats got to help out at least a little. It's going to be an interesting two weeks. Question is why would Tank be ok with Lloyd, but have issues with Milton in the same recruiting class. Lloyd is better than Milton. Answer It probably isn't that Tank would have issues with Milton it's just that Milton would add one more great RB to a team already stacked at the position. At GA Tank would share carries or be behind 4 other highly rated backs while at Carolina it would be much more of an even split between him and Lloyd. My collusion is Milton doesn't fall their way or Bigsby is simply their b guy. Neither narrative is truly in line with "we think you are special and need you to be a part of this class." Hopefully that is part of what our staff is telling Bigsby, and I'm sure it is. I don't think our pitch has changed at all; we need two special guys to make our room better and to save on the wear and tear being the only special back brings.
  13. SEC pundits weigh in: How will South Carolina do this year? July 22, 2019 The State spoke to a range of experts and media voices at SEC Media Days to get a sense of the conference and national temperature on South Carolina’s football team. The Gamecocks are facing down one of the most difficult schedules in the country with what Will Muschamp thinks might be his best team. SEC NETWORK CO-HOST CHRIS DOERING “I’m going to go seven wins. I think seven wins is a tremendous season, given what the schedule offers. And my hope is that the fan base understands the challenge this year and that it’s more than just what your wins and losses say this year. “I witnessed a very good coach in Will Muschamp being let go in my alma mater. And I wished at the time that they could have had a little more patience and longer vision.” (VIEW ARTICLE) THE STATE
