  1. The fourth and final prospect projected to be part of the four-tweet "birdie" class for the 2021 cycle has now officially announced her college destination. 5'-8" 5-star PG Raven Johnson out of Atlanta, GA (Westlake High) has chosen to become a Gamecock: Johnson is the 4th 5-star rated prospect to join the 2021 class, joining other 5-stars G Saniya Rivers, F Sania Feagin, and G Bree Hall. The South Carolina class is the first class in the 2021 cycle to have as many as four top 100 rated prospects in it, and currently should the top-rated class in the 2021 cycle, although other programs are still filling their classes. Without a doubt, this class should finish up in the top 10 overall, and even most likely as one of the top 5 in the cycle..... With the class expected to be completed with Johnson's announcement, the early signing period for the cycle will be this November. The 4 2021 prospects would bring the expected 2021-2022 roster to 13 scholarship players plus 1 walk-on: 1) Henderson 2) Saxton 3) Wesolek 4) Boston 5) Cooke 6) Beal 7) Amihere 8) Russell 9) Rivers 10) Feagin 11) Johnson 12) Hall 13) Littleton (transfer) 14) Thompson (walk-on??) Littleton would be in her 5th collegiate year including one transfer red-shirt year in 2021-22, so the question could remain if she chooses to stay and spend her final playing eligible season, or if she leaves with degree in hand and try her luck at the professional level. In WCBB, programs can have up to 15 scholarship players on the roster, so Thompson may end up getting on scholarship herself. Depending on that and Littleton's decisions, the Gamecocks could have anywhere from 1 to 3 available scholarships to give for the 2021-22 roster, but Coach Staley has stated her preference of having a roster size of 11-12 players and no more, so we'll see. As it is, NEXT season's roster won't have these commitments on it. The roster for next season has everyone minus those kids, plus senior Lele Grissett, so that's a complete playing roster of 11 players. We still could see a possible graduate transfer added to the roster for next season alone, or we could simply stand pat on who we have now. There are all options available to the staff, but we went 32-1 last season with 11 available players to play (we had 12, but Littleton was red-shirting and wasn't eligible to play)......
  2. Gamecocks recruiting class could turn these 3 weaknesses into strengths Jan. 02, 2016 Over the last 12 months, Muschamp certainly has proven that he has the chops to make it happen. Here are the team’s three biggest needs: Speed South Carolina struggled to cover kicks in 2016, and team speed was one of the primary reasons why, according to Muschamp. The Gamecocks finished as the worst team in the country in kickoff coverage, giving up 28.67 yards per return. Just over a month before signing day, Muschamp has commitments from a handful of recruits with more-than-adequate speed who — at the very least — will contribute on special teams in 2017. Muschamp already has told reporters that he believes that both junior college signees Kaleb Chalmers and Keisean Nixon will add speed to the defensive backfield. Four-star wide receiver Shi Smith, who’s listed with a 40-yard dash time of 4.4, could be the fastest recruit in South Carolina’s 2017 class. Even though he’ll do most of his work catching passes, Smith has enough of an edge to be counted on as a kick-coverage player. Four-star cornerback Jamyest Williams is also in the fastest-man conversation. At The Opening, he clocked a laser-timed 40 of 4.52. Nixon, Smith and Williams are also expected to figure into the mix as return specialists — Nixon and Williams on kickoffs and Smith and Williams on punts. Linebacker Davonne Bowen (4.66), safety Zay Brown (4.68) and linebacker Eldridge Thompson (4.79) have intriguing 40 times that could translate to playing time in 2017. Following the 46-39 overtime loss to South Florida in the Birmingham Bowl, Muschamp spoke indirectly to a handful recruits, letting them know he needed their help. South Carolina had a good one in defensive end Darius English, whose 9 sacks were tied for fourth-most in the SEC. But English’s playing days at South Carolina are finished. The Gamecocks’ top-returning pass-rushers are linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams and defensive tackle Keir Thomas, both of whom had 2 sacks in 2016. Muschamp already has reeled in 4-star defensive end M.J. Webb, who he’s likened to Jonathan Bullard, one of Muschamp’s former players at Florida. But Bullard had only 5.5 sacks for Muschamp when he was still the Gators head coach. Bowen’s highlights flash plenty of ability as a pass rusher, but his size likely will limit him in how he’s able to line up as a pass rusher. The potential as a situational pass-rusher is similar to what fellow 3-star linebacker Damani Staley brings to the table. Three-star Brad Johnson continues to consider South Carolina, Virginia Tech and, to a lesser degree, Tennessee. At 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, Johnson is built similarly to Bowen and Staley, though he is a little bigger than the two commitments. If Muschamp lands Johnson and regains a commitment from 4-star defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, the Gamecocks will have made good strides in upgrading their pass-rushing talent. Offensive line Not all of the 41 sacks South Carolina allowed in 2016 were on the offensive line, though the group is at the heart of the issue. Fortunately, for the Gamecocks, only one offensive lineman is gone from last season: starting left tackle Mason Zandi. All other starters return, including guard Donell Stanley, who was injured in the opener against Vanderbilt. South Carolina is also in the midst of replacing offensive line coach Shawn Elliott. Until then, a fourth offensive line commitment will be put on hold. Of the three already on board, JUCO placement Dennis Daley and Eric Douglas are the most likely replacements for Zandi. Several recruits remain in the mix, including 4-star Tony Gray and 3-stars Jordon Carty and Jordan Rhodes, all three of whom project as tackles. All rankings and ratings are based on the 247Sports co SECCOUNTRY
  3. Coach Dawn Staley and her staff have secured the 3rd official commitment to their 2021 recruiting class, with 6-3 Forward Sania Feagin's announcement on TikTok today: Feagin is a 5-star Forward listed as the #2 Forward and the overall #6 prospect by ESPN's Hoopgurlz. She's also the overall #9 prospect per Prospects Nation, and the #13 prospect by both Blue Star and ASGR. Feagin is out of Forrest Park High in Ellenwood, GA. Feagin's announcement along with Saniya Rivers' yesterday gives USC two overall top 10 prospects for the 2021 cycle, following up the 2019 class that had three top 10 prospects in Aliyah Boston, Zia Cooke, and Brea Beal. The 2020 class only had one prospect, 5-star Eniya Russell....
  4. The 2nd of the 2021 mystery commits for the women's basketball program head coach Dawn Staley tweeted about has added her name to Bree Hall - 5-star Guard Saniya Rivers out of Eugene Ashley High School in Wilmington, NC committed to the Gamecocks today: Rivers is the #2 Guard and overall #3 prospect in the ESPN Hoopgurlz rankings. She's also the overall #2 prospect on Prospects Nation and ASGR, and the #6 overall prospect on Blue Star. Rivers is the 2-time Gatorade Player of the Year for NC. Rivers is an athletic player that performs at an elite level on both ends of the court, and has a strong mid-range jumper. If anything she can improve on, it's her shooting distance from the 3-pt. arc, but as long as she's fundamentally sound in her mid-range game (and she is), then its just a matter of getting stronger in the weight room, getting into the gym and getting more comfortable at shooting from the longer distances.....
  5. The first commitment for the 2021 cycle to South Carolina has now made herself known: 5-star Guard Aubryanna "Bree" Hall out of Wayne High School in Dayton, Ohio. Bree Hall is another stellar prospect out of Ohio along the lines of Zia Cooke, guaranteeing that we will continue to see games scheduled with Dayton, Ohio State, etc. Bree Hall is a 5-star prospect on ESPN's Hoopgurlz ratings for the 2021 cycle - the #10 G and #26 prospect overall. Hall chose South Carolina out of a final list of 7 schools which included Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Texas (looks like Dawn beat Vic Schaefer again!), North Carolina State, and Ohio State. She also had offers from Louisville, Florida State, Indiana, and Dayton, among others. Hall is an athletic 5-11 guard that is a very strong lockdown defender but also has a strong mid-range game. She is a strong driver and finisher at the basket, and in all these skill sets she is very reminiscent of former Gamecock Alisha Gray, much like current Gamecock Brea Beal. Like Beal (and not quite at the level of Gray), Hall needs to continue improving her perimeter game at the 3-point arc.
  6. Gamecocks showing interest in 6-8 grad transfer Kevin Marfo of Quinnipiac March 17, 2020 Gamecocks showing interest in 6-8 grad transfer Kevin Marfo of Quinnipiac according to a 247Sports report. The Gamecocks also are reportedly interested in Virginia Tech transfer Landers Nolley II according to Stockrisers.
  7. 4 star SF Earl Timberlake 6'6" 215LBS will be announcing his commitment Monday Nov. 03, 2019
  8. South Carolina showing interest in Wichita State transfer Erik Stevenson March 16, 2020 South Carolina, according to Stockrisers, is among those showing interest in 6-3 Wichita State transfer Erik Stevenson. He’s a native of Lacey, WA and this season averaged 11 points and 5 rebounds per game. He played two seasons for the Shockers starting 32 of 68 games.
  9. Benson set to announce a decision Oct. 17, 2019, | sportstalk The two horse race for 6-8 Ridge View star Ja’Von Benson is set to end Friday morning. According to Blazers coach Yerrick Stoneman, Benson is set to announce his college choice on Twitter Friday morning. Benson took official visits to USC and the College of Charleston and has been working on his decision between those two for several weeks. He also had offers from Ohio State, Indiana State, Winthrop, SC State, Presbyterian, Upstate, UNC-Wilmington, East Tennessee State and others. “They’ve been watching me over the years and they’ve said that they believe I would be a great fit,” Benson said of the Gamecocks earlier in the process. “I see a great fit. I love the program.” Benson also has been impressed with the Cougars and the effort Earl Grant and his staff put into recruiting him. His coach said last week much of Benson’s decision would come down to where he thinks he’ll have the best opportunity to play. “He can go to College of Charleston and play quicker, not necessarily right away because they’ve got good players too, but you know, it’s going to be tough for him to get that playing time at South Carolina,” Stoneman said. “But in the long run, that might make him a better player because he’s got to compete every day.” Benson sat out his sophomore season at Ridge View after after transferring from Westwood. Last season he helped the Blazers win their second straight state championship averaging 10 points and 9 rebounds per game. He scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the state championship game victory over Wilson
  10. LeBron Thomas of Bishopville, a rising South Carolina basketball prospect June 30, 2019 LeBron Thomas played varsity basketball as a freshman. He’s had a breakout summer on the AAU circuit. He’s already receiving letters from Power 5 schools. LeBron Thomas, a rising sophomore at Lee Central High School and one of the state’s top prospects in the 2022 class. Thomas last week wore No. 22 — not 6 or 23, digits associated with the LeBron of 15 all-star games and three NBA championships — as he guided the Stallions during play in an NCAA-certified South Carolina recruiting event at Richland Northeast High School. The 15-year-old is a 6-foot-2 point guard — projected to grow to 6-5 — who finds joy in teammate involvement. He’s pass-first, but can score at any moment. “The sky’s the limit with LeBron,” said Lee Central coach Xavier Harry. “His IQ at that age, you don’t see that a lot. His IQ coming in, as a ninth grader working with us in the summer, his vision, his IQ, some of the things he did with the ball, we knew he was going to be a special player.” Thomas averaged nearly 12 points per game as a Lee Central freshman. He was paired in the backcourt with DaVeon Thomas, a rising junior who was recently offered by Presbyterian. In late April, while participating on the AAU circuit for Florence International, Thomas averaged a near triple-double — 27.8 points, 10 rebounds, 8.5 assists — over four games at a Phenom Hoops event. “It was a good weekend,” Thomas said. “I was mostly focused on my team. I was with my team that day. I know I can get out there myself, but I wanted my team out there exposed.” The state of South Carolina is on a good run when it comes to producing elite prospects. Dalzell’s Ja Morant (2017 class) and Spartanburg’s Zion Williamson (2018) just went 1-2 in the NBA Draft, Charleston’s Josiah James (2019) is a reigning McDonald’s All-American headed to Tennessee and rising Dorman seniors P.J. Hall and Myles Tate are ranked among the country’s top 105 players in the 2020 class. Greenville’s John Butler are Piedmont’s Bryce McGowens — couple Gamecock targets — both have four-star ratings in the 2021 class.
  11. Dawn Staley getting another McDonald’s All-American as Gamecock signee picks up honor January 24, 2020 For the third year in a row, South Carolina women’s basketball will be represented in the McDonald’s All-American Game. Guard Eniya Russell, who committed and signed with Dawn Staley’s Gamecocks back in November, was named to the 24-player roster on Thursday. Russell, a native of Baltimore, Maryland, is ranked No. 43 in her class by ESPN, No. 39 by Prospects Nation and No. 49 by All Star Girls Report. As a junior, Russell was named first-team All-Metro by the Baltimore Sun, averaging 20 points, five rebounds and five assists per game. For her senior season, she transferred to a new school and has helped lead Pallotti to a top-10 ranking in the Washington Post, putting up big numbers along the way.
  12. Gamecocks trying to get 4 star Power Forward Matthew Alexander-Moncrieffe for an official January 21, 2020 4 star Power Forward Matthew Alexander-Moncrieffe 6'7'' | 205 LBS CLASS OF 2020 The Gamecocks along with St John's are trying to get visit from 4 star PF Matthew Alexander-Moncrieffe from Mono, ON. "Moncrieffe has already visited Seton Hall officially and he'll hit the visit trail again soon. He's headed to Oklahoma State next Sunday and then he'll go see Georgetown the following week. He would like to take more visits after that with South Carolina and St. John's among those pushing to get him on campus."
  13. How the Gamecocks view SC’s top prospect Bryce McGowens in 2021 class November 25, 2019 There’s a long, lanky point guard playing high school basketball in South Carolina, but making a name for himself nationally. The Gamecocks are recruiting him — and perhaps having flashbacks. “They compare me to P.J. Dozier,” said Bryce McGowens. “I like that because I think he’s a pretty good player.” Five years after Dozier, a 6-foot-6 perimeter player from Columbia ranked among the country’s top 30 prospects, committed to USC, Frank Martin is after the 6-5 McGowens from Wren, the class of 2021’s No. 49 player, according to 247Sports composite. McGowens averaged 26 points, 3.8 rebounds and three assists a game as a sophomore for Wren, the Class 4A Upper State runners-up in 2018-19. Approaching his junior season, McGowens has offers from the likes of Clemson, Georgia, Pittsburgh, LSU and South Carolina. He visited the Gamecocks on Sept. 14 for the football game against Alabama and plans to return to Williams-Brice Stadium next week for the Clemson game. “I love the coaching staff,” McGowens said of Martin and company. “It’s a great coaching staff.” McGowens was in Columbia recently for a SC high school basketball media day event at the Convention Center. The scene also included USC’s 2020 signess (AC Flora’s Patrick Iriel and Ridge View’s Ja’Von Benson) and fellow ‘21 target John Butler Jr. “My boy John,” McGowens said. “We played with each other when we were little. That’s my guy. We got a relationship going, we want to play with each other in the future.” At the college level? “It doesn’t matter,” McGowens continued. “Some point in the future.” Greenville’s Butler Jr., who visited USC for the Gamecocks’ win over Wyoming on Nov. 10, and McGowens give the Palmetto State two representatives among 247Sports composite’s top 60 players for the first time since Dozier (No. 25) and Tevin Mack (57) in 2015. Dozier, of course, came to the Gamecocks and played a major role in the 2017 Final Four run. Clemson’s Tevin Mack is at his third school since starting at Texas and transferring to Alabama. While Butler Jr.’s parents are USC graudates, McGowen’s brother, Trey, is a starting guard at Pitt. “I want to go to a place where I know there’s another father figure because I’m going to be around him all the time,” McGowens said. “Play style, playing right away (is important). (Trey) just told me to go where best fits me.”
  14. Terrance Williams decommits from Georgetown. He was a Gamecocks target before he committed.
  15. Recruits taking notice and now this top 60 recruit is noticing Nov. 19, 2019 An inch or so away from being 7-feet tall, John Butler Jr. had a clear view of his potential future team. South Carolina beat Wyoming, 66-32, on Nov. 10. The announced crowd of 10,255 included Butler Jr., his parents and brothers. He sat behind the USC bench, easily spotting the way the Gamecocks held the Cowboys to 23% percent shooting, but also hearing how Frank Martin orchestrated one of the best defensive games of his eight-year run as Carolina coach. “One thing I picked up is during the game, when they set on-ball screens,” Butler Jr. said, “he really likes his bigs to go out and hedge really hard. So he got on a couple big men when they weren’t hedging hard.” Butler Jr., according to 247Sports Composite, is the nation’s No. 51 recruit in 2021 class. The Christ Church Episcopal School (Greenville) junior is the No. 2 prospect in the state of South Carolina. Offered by the Gamecocks last month, Butler Jr. has natural ties to Martin’s program. Both his parents graduated from USC. One of his parents had him raised on a Martin staple. “He kind of grew up as an all-defensive player,” said John Butler Sr., the coach at Christ Church. “And the last couple years I’ve seen him be a little bit more offensive minded. But we’re trying to push him to be a little bit more assertive, aggressive. So I’ve watched that, witnessed that.” It’s something Martin is prioritizing for the future, too. The 2020 recruiting class is complete — for now — with 6-10 Patrick Iriel from AC Flora and 6-8 Ja’Von Benson from Ridge View. A top target in 2021 is the 6-11 Butler Jr., who came to Columbia twice last week — once for South Carolina high school basketball media day, once as Martin’s visitor for the USC-Wyoming game.
  16. Dawn Staley and South Carolina get the first commitment for the 2020 cycle as 5-star Eniya Russell committed to the Gamecocks Friday. The 6-0 PG prospect - #43 currently on the ESPN Hoopgurlz ratings - is out of Saint Vincent Pallotti Highschool in Baltimore, MD. Russell chose South Carolina out of a top five that included Georgetown, Indiana, Miami, and Kentucky. Welcome to the Gamecocks, Eniya!!

  22. 7-0 John Butler Jr. gets down to see Gamecocks Sept. 16, 2019, | sportstalk 7-0 John Butler Jr. of Christ Church is emerging as a national prospect in the 2021 class. Clemson was one of his early offers and the Tigers were in to see him last week. USC has not yet offered but that process was set in motion last week when Butler and his dad, who also is the coach at Christ Church and the former coach at Eau Claire in Columbia, came in last Thursday to meet with Frank Martin. “The coaching staff invited him down when we weren’t able to make it on an earlier visit. He just came down and talked to him a little bit,” coach John Butler Sr. said. “He wanted to get to know one another a little bit. Just an interest kind of deal.” Coach Butler said they toured the campus and facilities and got the feeling from Martin that there is interest there and he will continue to develop the relationship. Butler visited Clemson in August for the Georgia Tech football game. He’s also been to Florida State unofficially. Georgia Tech also appears to have a solid place at the table with him at this point. “Just kind of letting John soak it in,” coach Butler said. “We’re just trying to help him thru this process. I think he really enjoyed his Florida State visit. The academics are attractive at Georgia Tech. And of course Clemson being close by. But it’s wide open. We’re just trying to kind him and help him make a good decision.” The Butlers did not visit anywhere this past weekend. Georgia Tech and Missouri are possible future visits. His offers also include Florida, Saint Louis, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Baylor and DePaul. Arkansas also is showing interest.
  23. Gamecocks do not make the cut for PJ Hall July 20, 2019 The state’s top basketball prospect in the 2020 class, 6-9 PJ Hall of Dorman, Friday night released his final five schools. 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. Hall took an unofficial visit to USC in late June. He also visited for the final regular season home game against Georgia.
  24. signing period. Any one have any info? I'm guessing we lost out on our top 2, Reese and Cardosa.
  25. Gamecocks, others waiting on Timberlake Oct. 09, 2019, | sportstalk The wait continues on a decision from 6-5 Earl Timberlake of Dematha Catholic of Hyattsville, MD. One of the nation’s top prospects in the 2020 class, Timberlake took official visits to USC, Miami, Seton Hall, Providence and Pitt. USC coach Frank Martin has gone all in on Timberlake with the help of assistants Bruce Shingler and Perry Clark. The staff made all the allowable visits with Timberlake, and like the coaches from the other schools, can only sit back and wait on a call. “I just think he’s going to take his time, you know, make sure he communicates everything with his family, and with his family get their opinions and everything,” said Dematha coach Mike Jones. “Ultimately, Earl’s going to make what he feels like is the best decision for for him and his future, so I don’t think there’s really any timetable other than I know he wants to get it done before the season starts.” Martin and company did a great job recruiting Timberlake, according to Jones, showing him how he could not only excel in the program but also find a home in Columbia. “Coach Martin is Earl’s kind of coach,” Jones said. “He’s one that I think understands. He’s a player’s coach. He’s got guys that he’s going to get the best out of you with this coaching style, but he also makes sure that the guys know that he loves them and he cares about them and their future. Those are the kind of coaches that Earl really thrives under. Coach Bruce and coach Clark, coach Bruce just because he’s got relationships with players and especially from this area, and then coach Clark being a Dematha guy himself, both of those things help the case for Earl as well. So, just familiarity, guys that he knows, guys that he can trust. That’s the kind of person Earl is.” Timberlake took his official visit to USC in June. He’s not said much publicly about that visit or any of the other four. Jones said Timberlake doesn’t like to talk about his recruiting publicly and is not tipping his hand on things. But the two have talked about the Gamecocks and the others left on hs list. “I know he enjoyed his visit. They’ve definitely put their best foot forward,” Jones said. “I know he believes all the schools that are remaining on his list would be good schools to go to, he’s just trying to do his research to make sure he picks the best option for himself.” Jones said Timberlake is a five position player on offense and can defend all over the court as well. He said his physicality really stands out and is the toughest player he’s ever coached.
