  7. One visit is all it takes for Tate to make decision, commits to Butler August 06, 2019, | sportstalk.com The exodus of prime basketball talent from the state of South Carolina continued Monday night when Dorman PG Myles Tate announced a commitment to Butler. Tate took an official visit with the Bulldogs over the weekend and that was enough for him to form a decision. He had narrowed his decision to Butler, USC, College of Charleston, Pitt, Appalachian State and Ole Miss. The decision has to be a shock to USC coach Frank Martin who recruited Tate longer than any of the other head coaches. The Gamecocks tracked Tate over the last two seasons and were regular visitors to his games on the AAU circuit. In late July, Tate indicated the Gamecocks were in excellent shape with him. “South Carolina is a good fit for me I think. It’s at home so family and things, that won’t be a problem. The school, I just like. I like Coach (Frank) Martin a lot. I feel like I can fit there and play to the best of my abilities. They’ve been showing me a lot of love for a long time. That’s important to me. Loyalty. They’ve been watching me since the summer of my 10th grade year. That really means a lot.” But apparently not enough to land him. Tate’s decision means the Gamecocks will miss out on both of Dorman’s highly acclaimed 2020 prospects. 6-9 PJ Hall has already cut the Gamecocks from his list. Clemson also offered Tate but did not really follow up with much interest, so he did not seriously consider the Tigers. The Tigers are on the short list with Hall who will take an official visit to Clemson on September 6th. He will follow that with officials to Florida, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Georgia Tech
  8. Gamecocks offer local forward August 02, 2019, | sportstalk.com 6-8 Ja’Von Benson of Ridge View saw his recruiting get a major boost Thursday. He took an unofficial visit to USC and left with an offer from Frank Martin. Prior to the visit, Benson’s biggest offers stook as Ohio, Indiana State and Murray State. The Gamecock offer now gives him a chance to play at the highest major conference level in the SEC. “I like USC a lot,” Benson said. “I’m definitely interested. I’m just living in the moment.” Martin and his assistants checked out Benson early in his career and over the summer. He helped Ridge View win a state championship last season. And he was impressive on the summer circuit. Martin saw enough to move forward with the offer on the first day of the new “quiet period” on the basketball recruiting calendar. “They’ve been watching me over the years and they’ve said that they believe I would be a great fit,” Benson said. “And they said to keep working. I see a great fit. I’m definitely considering it heavy. I love the program.” Benson also likes Martin’s system for big men and his coaching coaching style and sees that as another positive for the Gamecocks. “Coach Martin likes to feed the post and not put anyone in the post. And he lets people grow,” Benson said. “He’s aggressive and that helps you to become discipline.” Benson said there is no favorite at this point and he has not set up any of his official visits.
  9. USC Women offered rising freshman guard 5-9 Maliyah Mason of Irmo July 31, 2019 South Carolina women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley continues to set her sights on some of the up-and-coming talent in the Midlands. Irmo High rising freshman Maliyiah Mason picked up an offer from the Gamecocks recently after attending an Elite Camp at USC. It was her first Division I offer. “To me it means that hard work and dedication pay off,” Mason said of the USC offer. “In the long run, it just motivates me to go harder and push harder to accomplish all my dreams and goals.”

  11. Tate set with four official visits July 30, 2019, | sportstalk.com This week 6-0 PG Myles Tate of Dorman plans to name his final seven. From those seven he will take his official visits. Monday night he said he knew of four of those visits and dates are set for three of them. “I just felt like they were the schools that wanted me and showed me the most love,” Tate said of his final seven. “They made me feel like I was at home.” Tate will take his first official visit starting Thursday when he heads up to Butler. He also has set an official visit to the College of Charleston for August 22rd. And he plans to visit Pitt in September. Tate said USC also will get an official visit though a date has not been set. He talked with Gamecock coach Frank Martin earlier Monday. “He told me he was really excited and he just said that I can fit well in his program,” Tate said. Tate is not naming a favorite but previously stated some of his stop schools as USC, Virginia Tech, Appalachian State, Murray State and College of Charleston. He has not scheduled any in-home visits.
  12. Gamecocks make final seven with 6-5 Earl Timberlake of Dematha. The others on his list are North Carolina, Alabama, Miami, Pitt, Seton Hall and Providence.
  13. Gamecocks checking out another big for 2020 July 24, 2019, | sportstalk.com USC will lose big men Maik Kotsar and Micaiah Henry after this season and that will leave Frank Martin with just two true inside bodies for the following season in Alanzo Frink and Wildens Leveque. So, Martin and his staff this summer watched the various events around the country trying to identify possible replacements. One they like 6-9 Obinna Anochili-Killen, a native of Lagos Nigeria who has spent the last four years in Chapmanville, WV. The Gamecocks last exposure to Anochili-Killen was at the recent Peach Jam in North Augusta. The two sides are building that recruiting relationship that could lead to an offer in the near future. “We’re trying to set up an unofficial visit for after the dead period,” Anochili-Killen said. “I can come in there and play because they are losing two big guys. I’ve been talking to coach Chuck Martin. They are looking for a big guy.” The dead period ends July 31st and the month of August does allow for on-campus visits. Anochili-Killen has taken official visits to Temple and George Washington. Last season hea averaged 14 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks per game. What he hears from the Gamecock coach is they like his effort level. “They like my motor, how hard I play offensively and defensively,” he said. “I can score in and out. I can face up.” Anochili-Killen has offers from Penn State, VCU, Akron, East Tennessee State, Evansville, George Washington and George Mason.

Hall named Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech as the schools he will take official visits to in the weeks ahead, and he will choose one prior to his season. USC also was in strong pursuit but did not make the cut. “We were talking about really seeing the Gamecocks, but I just thought in my head I wouldn’t be happy and I didn’t want to waste their time,” Hall said Friday night from Los Angeles where his AAU team is playing the adidas Gauntlet Finale. “I’m just moving on to the other options.” USC coach Frank Martin had to cancel a scheduled in home visit in May and did not reschedule though he did meet with Hall and his teammate PG Myles Tate at school.

  17. Gamecocks sitting well with PG Myles Tate July 22, 2019, | sportstalk.com USC did not make the final five with Dorman standout 6-9 PJ Hall but the Gamecocks are in much better shape with his teammate, highly acclaimed PG Myles Tate. Tate is coming off an appearance at the Chris Paul CP3 Elite Guard Camp and this week he plans to move forward with his recruiting. He plans to review all of his offers and then narrow his list to the schools he will visit before making a decision prior to his season. Tate’s most recent offer came Sunday from Pitt. He also has offers from Clemson, College of Charleston, South Florida, Coastal Carolina, Presbyterian, Wofford, Appalachian State, Virginia Tech and Murray State. “We are just going to look at their rosters and what they have to offer, and what kind of systems they run and things like that, and how I would fit,” Tate said. “South Carolina is a good fit for me I think. It’s at home so family and things, that won’t be a problem. The school, I just like. I like Coach (Frank) Martin a lot. I feel like I can fit there and play to the best of my abilities. They’ve been showing me a lot of love for a long time. That’s important to me. Loyalty. They’ve been watching me since the summer of my 10th grade year. That really means a lot.” And heading down the stretch of his recruitment, Tate said the Gamecocks are continuing to show their strong interest. “I talked to South Carolina last Thursday,” Tate said. “They were asking me how I was playing in Alabama. They actually came to see me when I was down there, and I played pretty good. I talked to coach Bruce (Shingler) and he told me to keep doing my thing. I told him I was excited about South Carolina.” Tate took an unofficial visit to USC June 17th. He also took an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech in early June.

After that, he’ll be ready to concentrate on picking the college he will sign with in November. With that in mind, Hall plans to announce Friday his final five schools, and those will be the ones to get his five senior year official visits. He has already taken officials to Clemson and Florida. Those two, along with USC, Virginia Tech and Tennessee have been in his focus group, but there are other offers he has considered, such as Vanderbilt, Texas Tech, Maryland, Marquette, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Georgia and Wofford. Hall is relieved to have reached the stage of the recruiting process. “It is amazing,” Hall said. “I’ve thought about this my whole life. Getting to this point is really awesome, but there is still a lot more to do.” Hall said he has decided on the five schools but he has not notified any of its inclusion. He said coaches from each of the five scouted his games in last week’s event in Hoover, AL. “I’m going to wait (to notify the schools) until I put it out, but of course, the ones that are in there, they have a good feel, certain confidence, they are in there,” Hall said. ” Each program has their individuality so there’s not really a common thing about them. It’s a good list. I’m really comfortable with who I picked.” As he whittled his list to the final five, Hall said there certain things he looked for in a school that would make his list. “The coaching, of course,” he said. “The schemes. The offense and how I would fit in there. And them telling me their plans for me and how they would develop me.” Hall said he will take all five of his official visits before making his decision which will come soon after his final visit.
  22. Ten hoops names to watch in 2020 recruiting class July 15, 2019 The South Carolina basketball program will likely have two scholarships to work with this fall with the departure of two seniors and likely A.J. Lawson going to the NBA along with Seventh Woods going on scholarship. There are however, many players who are being recruited to fill those two positions.. The Gamecocks and head coach Frank Martin are certainly going to lose a pair of big men - Maik Kotsar and graduate transfer Micaiah Henry, so some of the chief targets are players who the staff believes can help in the post. Others, however, can help at multiple spots with another being a major in-state talent at point guard. (VIEW FULL ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS
