  1. 3 star OL Jakia Moore remains hot target for three DECEMBER 5, 2018 BY PHIL KORNBLUT LINK: SPORTSTALK Rivals bio 247sports bio Rivals star ranking 247sports star ranking Jakai Moore 3 star OL Jakai Moore 6'6" 295lbs of Nokesville, VA has done his due diligence in preparing for his college decision. He’s already taken an official visit to USC and during the season he made unofficial visits to Miami, Penn State, Florida, Ohio State and he also came back to Columbia. He also saw Clemson during the summer. From all that he’s now focused on USC, Clemson and Penn State according to his coach. Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell was in on Tuesday night to watch Moore in a basketball game. He also scouted him during the season. USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford also is expected to visit Moore this week. Will Muschamp and Penn State coach James Franking are scheduled to visit on the 14th. This weekend Moore will take an official visit to Penn State and he’s scheduled to see Clemson officially the following weekend. USC has been one of the favorites for Moore throughout the process and the Gamecocks will have a good shot to land him. “He loves Coach Wolf,” said Moore’s coach Brud Bicknell. “Every time he’s gone downn there he’s had a great time. Coach Wolford was one of the first guys on him so he’s got a great relationship there.” Clemson was not on Moore early as strongly as USC was but Caldwell has been doing what he can to make up for that and has opened some eyes. “Coach Caldwell has done a great job recruiting him but it’s been a one-man deal,” Bicknell said. “South Carolina, it’s been more of a full staff. It seems more of a group effort than Clemson. Coach Caldwell and I have had some good talks as far as his interest.” At this point, Bicknell said he can’t get enough info from Moore to get a read on what he’s thinking. “He hasn’t tipped his hand one way or another between the three schools,l” he said. “He’s enjoying the whole process. Some of it is becoming overwhelming.” Moore played guard in high school out of need for the team but his coach said he’s a natural left tackle. Moore plans to sign in December but he will not enroll early.
  2. Alabama safety one to watch for Gamecocks February signings STR / December 17, 2020 New USC football coach Shane Beamer is far from completing his first recruiting class with the Gamecocks. He announced eight signings Wednesday. It looks good for the Gamecocks to land cornerback Isaiah Norris on Christmas Day for a ninth. And defensive end TJ Sanders still plans to sign in February for a 10th. Add in the four current Gamecocks who are counted in the 2021 class and that’s 14. That leaves Beamer 11 spots to fill between now and February. One of those spots could go to SAF Juwon Gaston (5-11 187) of Montgomery, AL. He was offered by the Gamecocks recently and considers them the favorite at this point over Tennessee and Charlotte. “I was surprised about the offer from South Carolina,” Gaston said. “They’ve been recruiting me since my senior season. Coach Drew (Hughes) has been talking to me. Coach Beamer made the offer. I talked to him, too. Coach Beamer said he really liked me. He needed a player l like me in the lockerroom, an enforcer. And he likes the way I return punts and kickoffs.” Gaston said he wasn’t ready to sign this week because he’s just now getting this major offers and he needs more time to develop relationships. “I’m just trying to get closer to the coaches,” Gaston said. “Make sure everything is right and it feels like home. I feel really good about South Carolina. They’ve been showing a lot of love. I like them. They are standing out the most because they communicate with me the most.” Gaston said it’s possible he could make a decision and a commitment before February. Gaston was one of the top safeties in Alabama this season with 98 tackles and 5 interceptions. He was chosen to play in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game and according to one report has been one of the top performers in practice.
  3. Gamecocks make a move back up the list with Young STR / December 10, 2020 Byron Young DE Byron Young (6-3 240) of Georgia Military was offered by USC when Will Muschamp was in charge, and as a Carvers Bay product, the idea of playing for the home-state school struck a chord with him. After Muschamp was fired, he drifted away from the Gamecocks. But new coach Shane Beamer, after a phone conversation with Young Tuesday, has reeled him back in. The Gamecocks were one of the first Power Five programs to offer Young. Since then, the likes of Texas, UCF, Georgia, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, Virginia Tech, TCU, Appalachian State and Ole Miss have jumped in. After talking with Beamer, Young has the Gamecocks right back in the mix for his commitment later this month. “He hit me up and I was really excited,” Young said. “He really wants me to come back. He said I would be good in the program. I would be a major priority to the defense. Honestly, I had faded away from South Carolina a little bit, just everything that happened to the coaching staff. But now they have a coach. By the time I decided I thought they wouldn’t have a coach, but they do. I feel really good about them right now.” Young drew a quick assessment of Beamer from his initial conversation. “He’s a great guy, honestly,” Young said. “I’m going to research him a little bit. I think he’s from South Carolina, so he’s pretty good.” Young said USC defensive ends coach Mike Peterson has also been in touch with him. As have recruiters from other schools. He did a Zoom session Wednesday with Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffen and defensive line coach Deke Adams. Young has some favorites in mind, but he’s not to the point of making a decision, and may not be ready to sign on the 16th. “I told a lot of the coaches, it depends on how I feel on Signing Day,” Young said. “I don’t have to sign on Signing Day. I’ve got to January 15th, though I’m not going to wait that long. If I’m not feeling it on the 16th, I’m just going to wait to my momma’s birthday on the 23rd. I’ve got the day off just in case. I’ll see how I’m feeling. A lot is changing. South Carolina getting a new coach and stuff like that. I’m going to have to see.” Young said what he’s looking for in a school is rather simple. “Getting on the field,” he said. “I’m looking for an opportunity to show my ability. I would say the top ones are Auburn, Tennessee, Florida State, Missouri, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Texas and UCF. Those are the main ones right now.” Last season Young recorded 31 tackles with 11 tackles for loss and 7 sacks.
  4. Gaston feels the decision is near STR/ January 4, 2021 SAF Juwon Gaston (5-11 187) of Montgomery, AL doesn’t plan to announce his college decision until the February National Signing Day, but he’s getting closer on making the decision. USC coach Shane Beamer has been leading the charge for the Gamecocks, and right now his efforts are paying dividends. The Gamecocks have the edge right now, and the challenge for Beamer and his new secondary coach will be to hold on to it. “I’m at the peak now of making my decision,” Gaston said. “I’m almost there. I’m almost ready to make my decision. South Carolina and Tennessee. “South Carolina leads. A good little bit. A lot. I should be working on my edit this week but I’m not going to put it out. I’ll announce on Signing Day. I’m going to get everything else done.” Gaston said his phone was down for about three days last week so he missed out on contact with the coaches for those days, but it’s back up and running now and the calls and text messages from Beamer have returned. “They are showing a lot of love,” Gaston said. “They talk to me every day. They check on me every day. I feel like it’s home there. What makes me think he’s going to be successful is the way he talks to me. He talks like he’s a winner. He’s coming from a winner, so I feel like he knows what winning means.” Beamer not only envisions Gaston has a defensive stalwart on the backend, but also a major factor in the return game. “They told me about the new special teams coach, and he wants me to come and return kicks for him,” Gaston said. “He’s ready for me to go ahead and make my decision. He’s not rushing me, but he wants me.” Gaston was one of the top safeties in Alabama this season with 98 tackles and 5 interceptions. He was chosen to play in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game.

  5. Gamecocks land Louisiana linebacker Kolbe Fields 01/07/2021 Three-star linebacker Kolbe Fields from New Orleans (La.) Rummel commits to the Gamecocks The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder committed to South Carolina today after recently decommitting from Memphis. A sideline-to-sideline 'backer, Fields already had offers from Arizona, Houston, Purdue, Oklahoma State and SMU, among others. Fields is the for now is the only linebacker to commit to the Gamecocks for the 2021 class. He's ranked the No. 28 overall prospect in the state of Louisiana by Rivals.
  6. Saint Francis duo set to join Gamecocks in March January 26, 2021 / Recruiting QB Jason Brown (6-4 230) and WR EJ Jenkins (6-8 230), teammates at Saint Francis, PA received the news today from USC that they have been admitted to school, so both have officially committed to the Gamecocks. They will arrive on campus March 1st. The two are from Fredericksburg, VA and decided to transfer after Saint Francis cancelled a spring season. Their goal was to continue playing together, and the Gamecocks offered them that opportunity. “It’s a blessing,” Brown said. “I’ve been playing with him since the seventh grade. We’re definitely ready to get to work and show Columbia what we can do. I think we can definitely show them that we can play. I know there’s a lot of doubt coming from the FCS level, but I know that we can show them that we can play with the ability that we have on the field. Definitely excited for it.” In 2019, Brown led the NEC in passing and set a school record with 3084 yards and 28 touchdowns. He completed 62% of his attempts. He believes the new offense Marcus Satterfield plans to install at USC will fit him well. “The type of offense that South Carolina runs is perfect,” Brown said. “I think we could really fly up there. I’m in the pocket but I can extend plays. And when I extend plays, I’m always looking down field to throw the ball. I’m not looking to run, but I can definitely run if I need to. Running is not my first priority. No matter if I’m in the pocket, standing still, or if I have to escape the pocket, I’m still looking to throw the ball no matter what.” Jenkins was second team All-NEC in 2019 and set the school with 13 touchdown catches. He had 39 catches for 779 yards. If Brown and Jenkins count with the Gamecocks’ 2021 class, that will increase the number of spots taken to 22 leaving room for three more additions.
  7. Gamecocks reoffer one of the state’s best January 26, 2021 / Recruiting The new USC coaching staff has handed out a bunch of new offers for prospects in the 2022-24 classes in recent weeks, but one of their most important moves in recent days was to reoffer LB Jaylen Sneed (6-3 220) of Hilton Head. The four-star prospect carries a heavy load of offers from coaches-to-coast with Southern Cal, Texas A&M and Notre Dame the most recent new ones. New Gamecocks defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Clayton White didn’t waste a lot of time getting in touch with Sneed once he got settled in Columbia. He made the call to the 5th ranked outside linebacker in the country and #2 prospect in state and reassured him the original offer from previous linebackers coach Rod Wilson still stands. “I got a reconfirmed offer because of the new coaching staff,” Sneed said. “They want to get me on Zoom and definitely get me up for a visit when the dead period is over in April.” White has been the only coach from the Gamecock staff to communicate with Sneed thus far, which works for him since he would be his position coach should he choose USC. “He’s definitely a good coach so far from what I’ve seen,” Sneed said. “We’ve only talked once so far and we’ve been texting back and forth. We’ve talked about getting on a Zoom so I could meet more of the coaching staff, and do like kind of a virtual visit.” White said that Zoom meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at 7:00 PM. While USC has a big recruiting presence with Sneed, he said it’s been the opposite with Clemson thus far. “I haven’t really been talking to Clemson much,” he said. “They did just lose a linebacker so they are probably regrouping right now.” Some of his other offers are Iowa State, Duke, Florida, NC State, Indiana, UCF, Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Tennessee, Michigan State, Arkansas, Kentucky, Alabama, Texas, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Oregon, Kansas State, North Carolina and Syracuse. “I feel like it’s going great just knowing all these big time schools want me and I can play at the next level,” Sneed said. “I never really thought it would come this fast and this far.” He said along with USC he also hears regularly from Oregon, Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame and Virginia. He does not have a favorite and will name a top five or top ten this summer. He plans to make his commitment between the middle of his senior season and the end. Sneed only had three games in 2020 due to Covid, so recruiters are basing their judgement off his sophomore season when he had 76 tackles with 18 tackles for loss and 4 sacks.
  8. Gamecock recruiting round-up 01/25/2021 Gamecocks have offered 2023 WR Johntay Cook (6-0 170) of Desoto, TX. New receivers coach Justin Stepp had offered him at Arkansas.

Gamecocks have offered 2023 WR Brandon Inniss (5-11 175) of Miami Gardens, FL. 247Sports ranks him the #1 WR nationally in the ’23 class and the top prospect in Florida.

  9. Gamecocks hanging tough with Gaston January 22, 2021 / Recruiting USC has been one of the favorites of SAF Juwon Gaston (5-11 170) of Montgomery, AL for several weeks. In fact, he has called the Gamecocks his favorite in the past. But he landed an offer from Auburn earlier this week, and considering the proximity to his home, it stood to reason that the Tigers would jump right in and mess things up for Shane Beamer and company. However, Thursday night, Gaston said that is far from the case. “I really want to get out of the state so I can meet more people, new people,” Gaston said. “But I appreciate the opportunity they gave me. They said they really like me. They like how I play and they think I can come to their program and help them out.” Beamer was on the phone with Gaston Thursday night just making sure the Gamecocks remain in the lead spot for him. “He was making sure that I was still locked in with them and stuff like that, and that I still feel good about the team,” Gaston said. “He was telling me about the new strength and conditioning coach. I hear from them every day.” And for good measure Thursday night, Gaston restated his position that the Gamecocks are in the lead position for him. And he will have a Zoom call with the staff on Tuesday. “I’m feeling great about South Carolina,” Gaston said. “I’m feeling really good about them. They are still number one. They are still my favorite. They’ve recruited me the same since they first offered. They’re a big favorite.” Gaston also has had Tennessee and South Alabama on his short list, but with the coaching change in Knoxville, he said the Vols are no longer under consideration. He plans to wait until Signing Day next month to announce his decision, but he will privately commit to his choice before then.

  11. Gamecocks make offer to Georgia tight end STR / January 20, 2021 Tyrus Washington Leesburg High School in Georgia has been a fertile recruiting ground for USC in recent years. Former safety Jammie Robinson came from Leesburg, and incoming running back Caleb McDowell starred there this past season. The Gamecocks have gone back to Leesburg with a couple of 2022 offers, one to safety Jaron Willis and the other to tight end Tyrus Washington (6-4 230). The new Gamecock coaching staff recently made the offer to Washington. Tight ends coach Erik Kimrey, running backs coach Des Kitchings and offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield are the ones in touch and developing the relationship with Washington. “The relationship is really strong. I like it,” Washington said. “I’ve been talking to the tight ends coach and the running backs coach, and the offensive coordinator. I can split out and be like a wide receiver, and come down and bang with the big boys, block the defensive linemen.” Washington said he has talked with McDowell about the reasons he settled on USC after decommitting from NC State. “He said he liked how the coaches talked to him,” Washington said. “He liked the coaching staff. He liked the energy. Jammie told him about the energy and atmosphere at the stadium and said he loved it.” But Washington added that McDowell’s future with the Gamecocks won’t be an influencing factor with his decision. “That’s not a factor really. It’s just going to help to have somebody there with me if I go there,” Washington said. Washington said Coastal Carolina, Cincinnati, USF and Arkansas are some other schools he’s hearing a lot from. He also has offers from Pitt, Ole Miss, Boston College, Charlotte, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Troy. Washington wants to make his decision before his senior season, and he will sign in December. Last season Washington caught 15 passes for 200 yards and 8 touchdowns.
  12. Wallace on cruise control until Signing Day STR / January 19, 2021 It’s roughly two weeks until the February National Signing Day, and USC target LB Trevin Wallace (6-2 217) has gone into full recruiting chill mode. The former Boston College commitment is not sweating the decision because it’s practically made. So, he’s been spending more time talking with his family and less time talking with recruiters. He does hear from USC coach Shane Beamer via text most every day. Just a word or two of inspiration. Wallace said it’s been a little while since he last talked with a Gamecock recruiter. The others he’s been hearing from are Auburn, Kentucky, Illinois and Ole Miss. “My plan is to make everybody sit there and wait and be clueless,” Wallace said. “I’m sitting undercover now.” So, Wallace has a secret and he’s not going to share until Signing Day. But he did let on that he’s got an idea as to which school he’ll choose. “I’ve got a feeling that I do,” Wallace said. “I like how they talk to my parents. My parents feel comfortable with them. Overall, it’s just a good community to be in. They’ve just told me I’m going to be a baller.” But, Wallace added, at this point, he’s still not married to any one particular school. “I’m in the middle, you know,” Wallace said. “I’ve still got a couple of weeks to wait. Anything can change in that kind of time.” Wallace said he has done Zoom sessions with the coaches from USC, Auburn, Tennessee and LSU. Wallace is a four-star in the 247Sports Composite. He’s ranked the #13 inside linebacker nationally in the class.

The two put their names in the NCAA Transfer Portal earlier this week after their spring season was canceled. The new USC coaches quickly got in touch on Tuesday. They followed up Wednesday with another Zoom meeting and delivered the good news to the long-time friends. “We were told we both have offers,” Brown said. “They just have to get us in. Admissions take about five days to get the percentage and hours of classes and things like that. We’ll be ready to commit once everything finalizes. We’ll have to be March 1st enrollees.” Brown said he and Jenkins plan to formally commit once everything is finalized with USC admissions.

  17. Five-star quarterback Gunner Stockton trending from South Carolina to Auburn When the South Carolina Gamecocks fired head coach Will Muschamp in November, it was inevitable that some players would possibly decommit from the program. While 2022 five-star quarterback Gunner Stockton has not yet done so, 247Sports' director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong reported today (VIP) that the Auburn Tigers came in with an offer to the talented signal-caller today and are pushing hard to flip him.

  20. Gamecocks working hard on LB Trevin Wallace 01/06/2021 LB Trevin Wallace of Jessup, GA has become kind of a big deal in recruiting since decommitting from Boston College the end of November. He passed on signing in December and rolled the dice on the offers he might attract for February. So far, it’s worked out well. Wallace has seen the Gamecocks, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, Ole Miss and Kentucky come to the table. The intensity is picking up among the schools, but Wallace is not ready to push the issue. “Really, there hasn’t been any movement because I’ve been letting everything go over my head and chilling,” Wallace said. “I’m just taking time with my family now and will worry about this stuff later until it gets closer to the signing period. So, I’m just sitting back and relaxing now.”

  24. Recruiting news could there be a commit coming soon 01/02/2021 Saturday was to be the day of the All-American Bowl in San Antonio (formerly the Army All-American Game), but Covid-19 put end to it for this season.

  25. Transfer DE may not be able to wait on Gamecocks new DC STR / December 31, 2020 Former Temple DE Arnold Ebiketie (6-4 240) is one of the prime prospects in the graduate transfer portal, and he’s talked with USC defensive line coach Tracy Rocker. The Gamecocks would have a lot to sell Ebiketie on…a starting job, the SEC, graduate school opportunities…but they don’t have a defensive coordinator. And justifiably, that’s a big concern for the 2nd team All-AAC performer. “I talked to their D-line coach a couple of times, and he told me about the fact they are hiring a new defensive coordinator,” Ebiketie said. “We talked about getting me into the program. For me, the concern is not knowing the type of defense they are going to run. I wouldn’t want to get myself involved with something like that if I have no idea. The coaches really don’t have an idea who their defensive coordinator is. That’s kind of why I’ve started to narrow down to a couple of schools that’s coming down to my final decision. I wasn’t really so high on South Carolina because of that factor.” With only one season of college ball, Ebiketie wants to play in a system that fits his skills and will help prepare him for what he hope will be an NFL career. “I’m more of a 4-3 guy,” Ebiketie said. “Time to time, I like to move around a little big just to show my versatility. I kind of want to show all that package as I transition to the next level.” If Ebiketie would wait on his decision, he might find what he’s looking for in a scheme with the Gamecocks, based on what he heard from Rocker. “The way the conversation went, he told me the head coach knows the type of defense he likes to run, so the defensive coordinator that they are getting will most likely fall in that category of a 4-3,” Ebiketie said. “To be honest with you, I’m not really sure I can wait on them. It would be a risk I would say.” The top three with Ebiketie at this point are Texas, Boston College and Penn State, and he’s looking at making his decision within a few days. In 25 games with the Owls, Ebiketie totaled 59 tackles with 10.5 tackles for loss and 6 sacks.
