  3. 3-star CB Joey Hunter to see Gamecocks before his decision June 19, 2019, | sportstalksc.com 3-star CB Joey Hunter (6-1 185) of Tyrone, GA has set July 2nd for his commitment announcement. This weekend he will take his first and final official visit prior to his announcement, and that will be to USC. The Gamecocks have been in his top seven along with Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Pitt, Vanderbilt, Boston College and Syracuse. Hunter also visited USC a couple of weeks ago for a camp so he already has a good idea about the school. “The facilities and campus are beautiful,” Hunter said. “I was surprised with where it was. I thought it was going to be more like the country, but it wasn’t really rural, and I really like that. And with the coaching staff, I like that it’s a defended minded coaching staff. Coach Muschamp is a very defensive minded guy. Coach T-Rob is a great defensive back coach, one of the best in the country. It’s a lot to look forward to, the coaching staff over there.” Hunter has built a good relationship with Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson, and the idea of possibly playing for them is highly appealing to him. “I’m real close with Coach T-Rob, Coach Muschamp, I talk to both of them every day, so I’ve got a real good relationship with South Carolina,” Hunter said. “I like the coaching staff and I like the environment around the players, too. That’s a lot to look forward to at the University of South Carolina.” And apparently Muschamp and Robinson are looking forward to possibly having Hunter in their secondary. They have found a lot to like in his play based on what they saw on camp and on film. “Coach Muschamp and Coach T-Rob both told me that my physicality and my ball skills, that’s what they really like,” he said. “And my ability to play different positions all over the field. I appreciated that, getting to go out there and showcase my different abilities at different positions.” Hunter said cornerback and nickelback are his primary positions, with safety being a third choice. He said there is no leader going into the weekend and all the schools are recruiting him hard with calls every day. Last season Hunter 49 tackles with 3 interceptions.

  5. 3-star OL Vershon Lee commits to the Gamecocks June 18, 2019 Rivals bio 247sports bio Rivals star ranking 247sports star ranking USC added what is likely the final piece to its 2020 offensive line haul with a commitment Monday night from 3 star OL Vershon Lee 6'3" 290lbs of Woodbridge, VA. He picked the Gamecocks over Pitt, and also considered NC State, West Virginia and Wake Forest in his final short group. Lee took an official visit to Pitt this past weekend. The weekend before he visited USC and got the chance for an extensive conversation with offensive line coach Eric Wolford. “We were talking about football and how things go and how he needs me,” Lee said. ‘He was telling me about how vital it would be for me to come here. I feel wanted here. I could get real relaxed comfortable here.” The Gamecocks see Lee as an interior offensive lineman, and hs coach believes he would excel as a guard or center. “He definitely has the athleticism to play tackle, just doesn’t have the height,” said coach Darryl Overton. “He’s also been a point guard in basketball. Very athletic. He fell in love with being a lineman, blocking and being nasty. He takes a lot of pride in pancaking people. He’s got a lot of good skill sets. He’s very dedicated to his craft.” Lee gives USC five offensive line commitments for the class, though Issiah Walker is still shopping around, and 13 commitments overall.

  10. Best in the state: A look at the top 10 players in South Carolina June 18, 2019 The state of South Carolina traditionally produces a lot of very good college football players. There are times when the state has a bit of a down year, which includes the 2021 cycle, but some of the best players in the country reside in the Palmetto State this season. This year, there are three players from the state of South Carolina ranked in the Top 100 nationally with another ranked within the Top 200. That’s not a bad number for a small state, which totals five four-star or better prospects. And this year, the state also has the No. 1 prospect in the entire country, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Defensive end Jordan Burch is the best player nationally with a 0.9991 rating in the aggregate total, which averages the rankings of three different evaluation sites. Burch also has another top player, four-star defensive tackle Alex Huntley, on his high school team. (VIEW FULL ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS

  12. 2019 Opponent Preview: South Carolina Hosts Gators In “Measuring Stick” Game For Both Programs June 18, 2019, | by CHRIS, | THESPURSUPSHOW OPPONENT: Florida WHEN: Saturday, October 19th WHERE: Williams-Brice Stadium (Columbia, SC) ALL-TIME SERIES RECORD: Florida leads 27-9-3 LAST MEETING: Florida beat the Gamecocks 35-31 in Gainesville, FL 2018 RECORD: 10-3 (5-3) Head Coach… Dan Mullen The Gators football program got a boost of energy a year ago when former assistant Dan Mullen was named head coach. Year one was successful for Mullen and co., leading the Gators to a 10-3 (5-3) overall record, capped off by an impressive 41-15 win over Michigan in the Peach Bowl. Now, Mullen looks to make another big jump in year two and get the Gators closer to the promises he made upon his hiring. Returning Starters… OFFENSE (5) WR Van Jefferson (Sr.) WR Tyrie Cleveland (Sr.) WR Josh Hammond (Sr.) C Nick Buchanan (Sr.) QB Feleipe Franks (Jr.) DEFENSE (7) DE Jabari Zuniga (Sr.) NT Adam Shuler (Sr.) DT Kyree Campbell (Jr.) LB David Reese II (Sr.) CB CJ Henderson (Jr.) STAR Trey Dean III (So.) S Donovan Stonier (Jr.) How did they fare in 2018? The Gators surpassed expectations in Dan Mullen’s first season, winning 10 games capped off by a huge win over Michigan in the Peach Bowl. The year didn’t come without some bumps and bruises along the way, however. Florida lost to Kentucky for the first time in over two decades, sending fans in Gainesville into panic mode early on. UF rebounded nicely, winning five in a row before suffering back to back losses to Georgia and Missouri. Once again, Florida bounced back, winning four straight games, leading to an off-season full of optimism and hope heading into the 2019 season. Best Returning Player… Felipe Franks While highly criticized at times, Franks truly is the engine that makes Florida go. Franks quietly had a nice year for the Gators, throwing for just under 2,500 yards, 24 TD and just 6 INT. Now, heading into his junior season, he will look to take another major step and establish himself as one of the best signal callers in the SEC. Overall Outlook… To nobodies surprise, the Gators enter this season with sky high expectations in Dan Mullen’s second season. It’s been an interesting off-season for Florida to say the least, led off by Chris Steele’s decision to transfer which spurned a lot of moving around in Gainesville. Mullen has been very outspoken this off-season as well, getting in daily jabs at his archival UGA, Tennessee and others. Now, for the Gators trip to Columbia. First of all, don’t even get me started on last years game… South Carolina had Florida dead, leading by 17 with just under five minutes to play in the 3Q before the Gators stormed back for a 35-31 win. Now, the Gamecocks will look for revenge in what should prove to be a “measuring stick” type game for both programs this October. Still the question remains: what can we expect from this Gators team? Some have them listed as high as a Top 10 team in the pre-season, while some have UF taking a step back. Count me amongst those who are skeptical of the Gators in year two of the Dan Mullen era. UF comes back down to Earth a bit in 2019, including in their week eight match-up in Columbia. 2019 SEASON PROJECTION: 8-4 (4-4)
  13. Get USC’s four-star running back commit in this spot, and it’s ‘like stealing’ June 18, 2019 When former DeMatha High School offensive coordinator Chris Grier got his hands on four-star tailback MarShawn Lloyd last spring, one thing immediately popped. The new South Carolina football commit was working in 7-on-7 drills and showed a little extra in his toolbox. “He really, really cannot be covered by a linebacker in any way out of the backfield,” Grier said. “It’s just a complete mismatch. Being able to do some different things with him out of the backfield, option routes, where he can kind of play off the leverage of linebackers, is like stealing.” When Lloyd arrives in Columbia, there will be some expectation at least outside the program, for him to step in as a primary back of sorts.
