  1. 2022 composite 5* and national #1 Dual Threat QB prospect Gunner Stockton has committed to the Gamecocks today, per his twitter account: Stockton plays for Rabun County out of Tiger, Georgia. He has had a longstanding relationship with both Connor and Jaybo Shaw, as well as with the Bobo family of George and his son Mike, who is now the Offensive Coordinator at USC. Jaybo Shaw is Stockton's high school head coach, so even though it came down to USC and UGA as the final two programs vying for Stockton's services, the Gamecocks have held a large lead for some time. Stockton also held offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, LSU, Miss State, Missouri, Ole Miss, UNC, NC State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn St., SoCal among others. Curiously, Gunner is the nationally ranked #1 Dual Threat QB per 247sports, and the nationally ranked #2 Pro-Style QB per Rivals for the 2022 cycle, so we have it covered with this kid. 247sports Bio Rivals Bio 247sports Rating: Rivals Rating:
  2. Former WR Tyquan Johnson South Carolina signee expected to be part of 2019 class December 11, 2018 Rivals bio 247sports bio Rivals star ranking 247sports star ranking .mcclatchy-embed{position:relative;padding:40px 0 56.25%;height:0;overflow:hidden;max-width:100%}.mcclatchy-embed iframe{position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%} 3 star Wide receiver Tyquan Johnson 6'3" 195lbs had to take a detour to joining South Carolina football. But the lanky Georgia product is expected to finally join the Gamecocks soon enough. His coach at Screven County High School, Ron Duncan, said he is good to go academically and as far as Duncan knows will enroll in January after spending the fall at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia. Academics forced Johnson to take the prep school route. Johnson, a December signee last year, will count against South Carolina’s 25 2019 signees. They currently have 16 commits for 22 spots, accounting for Johnson and two transfers, as well as the recent news that Northwestern wide receiver Jamario Holley was dropped from the class. For the season, Johnson had 12 catches, 157 yards and two touchdowns for a 9-0 team at Fork Union, working in a loaded receiving group. “He’s a hard-working, diligent kid,” Fork Union coach John Shuman said, adding Johnson was headed to Columbia in the spring. “Performed admirably for our postgraduate team.” In high school, Johnson was a deep threat for a series of successful option teams in Georgia. As a high school senior, he caught 32 passes for 661 yards and 10 scores. Nearly two in five of his 94 career high school catches went for touchdowns. He was the No. 641 player in his class by the 247Sports composite rankings and the No. 100 receiver. He’ll join a group that has a range of options but is losing one big piece. South Carolina will be without Deebo Samuel next season, but will have Shi Smith and OrTre Smith, plus second-year pass catcher Josh Vann, Chad Terrell, Chavis Dawkins and others. Junior Bryan Edwards would be a big piece to have back, but he faces an NFL decision. Johnson, who stands at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds and can jump 36 1/2 inches, will join a line of Gamecocks who came through Fork Union. “Jacob August who is a tight end there now, Jerell Adams, he fits the same mold as those guys,” Shuman said. “They came in with some rough edges. We smoothed them up, and they’re going back a little better people.”
  3. The staff is chugging along - Coach Muschamp tweeted out another "#SpursUp!" today - we secured a commitment from OT JonDarius Morgan, out of Birmingham, AL. Morgan is currently a 5.5 rated 3-star per Rivals, although he's unrated by 247sports as well as per their composite rating system. Morgan (6-4, 306) chose South Carolina over offers from Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, South Florida, and Syracuse. Morgan is the 10th commitment to the 2021 class...
  4. South Carolina got a big commitment today in WDE George Wilson out of Green Run (Virginia Beach, VA). Wilson (6-5, 214) had been a strong prediction by the online recruiting experts to go to North Carolina, but things started changing over the past 2-3 days. Wilson has a strong offer list of Georgia Tech, Arizona State, Maryland, Michigan State, Mississippi, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Virginia, Indiana, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, and Pittsburgh among others. With Wilson's pledge, it brings the South Carolina 2021 class to 15 total commitments...
  5. Coach Muschamp secures his 2nd commitment of the day in in-state WR prospect O'Mega Blake (6-2, 188) out of South Pointe in Rock Hill. Blake follows up OT prospect JonDarius Morgan's pledge to the 2021 cycle, and brings the class to 11 total commitments. Blake is the 2nd WR prospect added to the class, joining Sam Reynolds who committed back on March 1st. Blake chose the Gamecocks out of a lengthy list of offers which included Georgia Tech (this is the 3rd or so commitment in a row that also has GT offers - either we're recruiting their targets, or they are recruiting ours), Kentucky, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Illinois, Kansas State, Michigan State, Penn State, NC State, Louisville, and Indiana among others.
  6. Kamari Wilson Gamecocks have early positioning with '22 safety Feb. 11, 2020, | sportstalk USC coach Will Muschamp feels he got a steal with the late commitment and signing of LB Gilber Edmond of Fort Pierce, FL Edmond literally changed his plans from South Florida to USC in the final minutes before signing last Wednesday morning. And with Edmond in the fold, the Gamecocks will have an excellent chance to land his close friend and teammate SAF Kamari Wilson (6-1 180) for the 2022 class. “We have a safety that is the best in the nation in the class of 2022,” said Westwood High assistant coach Roscoe Barber. “He’s been seriously thinking about committing now that Gilber is going there. They (USC) are one of his top schools. They are in the lead group.” Wilson has not yet been given a rating in the 247Sports composite but he’s expected to be in the 4-5 star range based off his offer list of USC, Miami, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Penn State and Tennessee. Barber feels a 5-star rating would fit the talent. “There is nothing Kamari can’t do on the football field,” Barber said. “He came into our program wanting to make a name for himself and did just that thru all the hard work and dedication he put in. He received his first offer from the University of Florida in the spring of his freshman year. Now he has offers from South Carolina, Penn State, Indiana, Miami, Tennessee. This year he has played every position on our defense except for defensive tackle. He is a big time playmaker and wants to be great on and off the field.” Wilson has seen USC. He was in with his seven-on-seven team last summer and the plan is for him to get back for a recruiting stop. “Kamari really enjoyed the visit,” Barber said. “He wants to get back on campus to see more of it. And he just wants to see what’s going on with the staff being that there are all these changes happening. But Gilber being there does put them at the top of his list. They are very close.” Barber added that the two staff members coming to USC from Tennessee should be familiar with Wilson since he was offered by the Vols.
  7. The Gamecocks have gotten another commitment to the 2021 class today, with GA Safety Jayden Johnson. Johnson is a 6-2, 200 athlete out of Cedartown, GA. Johnson is considered as an Athlete as he's also played WR and QB for Cedartown High, proving that he's one of the top athletes for their program, and is placed into multiple positions to make plays. Johnson committed to USC over offers from Arkansas, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Virginia, Georgia Tech, and Kansas State among others. Johnson is now the 8th prospect committed to the 2021 class. https://247sports.com/Player/Jayden-Johnson-46100278/ https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2021/jayden-johnson-259448
  8. He is transferring and will be a walk-on. Welcome aboard young man, you look great in Garnet and Black! Work hard and you can't be denied. CB Elijah Rodgers 6'1" 169lbs
  9. April 4, 2020 (per Phil Kornblut) Three-star cornerback Demarko Williams of Atlanta, who committed to South Carolina on Jan. 21, announced a decommitment on Friday. Williams gave no reasons for his decommitment, and indications are that USC will still be considered. After his commitment, Florida State and Ole Miss offered him scholarships. Three-star offensive tackle Jakiah Leftwich of Atlanta has been a target of USC offensive lineman coach Eric Wolford for months. Head coach Will Muschamp offered Leftwich in late November after a visit to Leftwich's school during the open week, and since then Wolford has kept up his interest. Leftwich has set July 19 for his announcement, and it would shock few if he picks USC. Four-star running back Lovasea Carroll of Warrenton, Ga., and IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. On January 17, he named his top five as USC, Florida, UGA, Auburn and Ohio State. However, he has dropped Ohio State from his list and replaced it with Tennessee. Carroll has set his announcement day for August 6th. Between now and then, when visits are once again allowed, Carroll plans to take official visits to all five finalists. He had scheduled one with USC for the spring game. Florida is considered the favorite at this point by Carroll. Wide receiver Malcolm Johnson (6-feet-1-inch, 185 pounds) is a 4-star, 2-sport prospect from Bryans Road, Md., who attends school in Alexandria, Va. He's an acclaimed track and field athlete in the 200-, 100- and 55-meter dashes. That speed has transferred well to the football field where he's also attracted national attention. Johnson named a top 12 last week and USC was firmly in the mix. Johnson maintained there's sincere interest on his part toward USC, and he just needs to get the campus to learn more about the football and track programs. Johnson also has been talking in detail with USC WR coach Bryan McClendon. He's liked the approach McClendon has taken with him. Johnson is ranked the No. 7 WR prospect in the country in the 247Sports composite and the No. 6 prospect in the state of Virginia. He will not be an early graduate. USC dipped into south Florida to become the first SEC offer for athlete Tavoris Miller (6-0, 160) of Miami. Miller said USC likes him as a DB. He also plays QB and WR and is on the basketball team. Miami is the other Power 5 conference offer for Miller at this point. He also has offers from Coastal Carolina, Florida International, Western Kentucky and Tennessee State. Other USC offers last week went to 3-star tight end Elijah Arroyo (6-4, 210) of Frisco, Texas; '22 class 3-star CB Joshua Thompson (6-2, 185) of Washington; 3-star CB Devin Moore of Naples, Fla.; 4-star WR Luther Burden of St. Louis; 4-star linebacker Torren Wright (6-3, 210) of Kannapolis, N.C.; 4-star CB/RB Kody Jones (5-10, 165) of Memphis, Tenn.; WR Mari Brown (6-3, 170) of Stuart, Fla.; WR Andre Greene (6-3, 180) of Richmond, Va.; and LB Keaten Wade (6-4, 215) of Spring Hill, Tenn. USC TE target Bryson Nesbit of Charlotte was offered by Michigan State, USC LB target Raneiria Dillworth was offered by Penn State, and USC ATH target Kamarro Edwards was offered by LSU. USC RB target Trevion Cooley picked up offers from Syracuse, Mississippi State, Coastal, Georgia Southern, Rutgers, Virginia Tech and Temple. USC RB target Tiyon Evans of Hartsville and Hutchinson Junior College in Kansas was offered by WKU. USC LB target Bryce Steele was offered by Texas. He has had USC and UNC as his top two with an announcement date of April 9. USC is in the top 8 with RB AJ Green of Tulsa, Okla. The others are Oklahoma, LSU, Michigan, Baylor, Texas Tech, Arkansas and Oklahoma State.
  10. Gamecocks move early on JUCO bound DT By Phil Kornblut / March 18, 2020 / Recruiting Will Thomas Gamecocks this week offered DT Will Thomas (6-3 286) of Raleigh, NC knowing he won’t be part of the 2021 class. Thomas said he will have to go to junior college first, and the plan is to go for a year and a half before moving on. The same plan Javon Kinlaw used to get to USC. And the Gamecocks now how the Kinlaw story turned out. “The last time they came (to school), a good month ago, I came out and introduced myself,” Thomas said. “My coach told me they wanted to see me in the spring and they’ve just been talking to me ever since.” Thomas said he’s been talking primarily with new defensive line coach Tracy Rocker and new director of player personnel Drew Hughes. Both came from Tennessee, which is also one of the offers to Thomas. “He (Rocker) sent me an invitation to their spring practice (before it was canceled) and the times that I can come in their practice schedule,” Thomas said. “He was just checking up on me and hoping that everything is staying safe. He’s just been checking up on me to see how I’m doing.” “I’m really excited about the offer,” Thomas continued. “It’s going to be one of the top five that I have, one of the main ones I might pick. I like that they are close to home. They have a nice facility that I’ve seen. I hope in the future I’ll visit.” Thomas has not yet visited USC. He has been to Coastal Carolina, East Carolina and Duke. The Chants and Blue Devils also have offered along with Tennessee and Liberty. Last season, Thomas said he was in on around 65 tackles with 5 sacks. 247Sports rates him as a three-star prospect and the #32 ranked prospect in his home state.
  11. Gauthier goes inside his commitment to the Gamecocks By Phil Kornblut / March 19, 2020 / Recruiting Colten Gauthier USC worked hard to earn the commitment of QB Colten Gauthier of Dacula, GA. The work started with head coach Will Muschamp and quarterbacks coach Dan Werner last spring when the offer went it. And it continued with Muschamp and his new quarterback's coach Mike Bobo when he came on board in December. Gauthier took five visits to USC over the last year, the last one coming earlier this month. At that point, he knew his decision. “I was originally planning on doing it (announcing) at the spring game,” Gauthier said. “I committed to Coach Muschamp about a week ago and I told him I was going to do it at the spring game. With this whole thing going on, I wasn’t too sure that was going to happen. I’m committed so I might as well go ahead and put it out because it’s uncertain what’s going to happen. That was the debate this morning (Wednesday), whether I should do it or I should wait. I decided to do it and send it out.” On that last visit, Gauthier got the chance to visit behind the scenes with Bobo and talk quarterbacking. Then, he got to watch a practice and watch Bobo teach what he preached. “I was listening to the offense and it is kind of surreal about how much he knows about the game of ball,” Gauthier said. “It’s convenient because he played the position, too. He gets it. I got to see it live. It was eye opening to see the offense in motion. And I talked to a lot of people too after I left South Carolina. Me and (Ryan) Hilinski are pretty tight. Me and Luke Doty are pretty tight, too. I asked them, what’s your take on Bobo, what’s your vibe? I asked KJ Carta-Samuels, who played for him at Colorado State, because I’m really tight with his brother Austyn Carta-Samuels. We hooked up. We talked about it. I heard really great things. I talked to my coach, Jeff Saturday, and heard a lot of great things. Prayed about it, thought about it for a while, then I decided to call Muschamp and commit to him.” Last season Gauthier passed for 2400 yards and 20 touchdowns. He’s ranked as one of the top pro-style quarterbacks in the country. And he feels like he can give Bobo exactly what he’s looking for in a quarterback. “I feel like my biggest strength is I’m able to touch everyone on the field,” Gauthier said. “He asks that you make every throw on the field, and you go as much as you can handle with that offense. I feel like that’s an advantage for me because I’m able to handle a lot of it, because of my arm ability and strength. So, the biggest thing for me fitting in wise, I’m able to make every throw on the field. That’s Coach Bobo’s offense right there. And that’s also probably a reason why I decided to commit. I feel like that’s a high level offense. That’s pro. That’s an NFL type offense. I have aspirations to go to the NFL. Why not go somewhere that’s going to be as close as possible to the real thing. That’s pretty much it for me and how I feel I will fit in.” Gauthier had double-digit offers and he had Ole Miss, Florida State and UCF also high up on his list. He is rated a 4-star prospect by Rivals and a 3-star by 247Sports.
  12. 4-star QB Colten Gauthier commits to Gamecocks March 18, 2020 / Recruiting Rivals bio 247sports bio Rivals star ranking 247sports star ranking Colten Gauthie USC Wednesday landed a commitment from 4-star QB Colten Gauthier (6-3 205) of Dacula, GA. Gauthier was offered by the Gamecocks last year while Dan Werner was the quarterback's coach, and new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Bobo picked right up on his recruiting once he arrived in December. Gauthier made at least five unofficial visits to USC for recruiting and camp purposes over the last year and had kept the Gamecocks high up on his list along with Florida State, Ole Miss, and UCF. Some of his other offers are Boston College, Duke, Virginia Tech, Colorado, Michigan State, Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Georgia Tech and Indiana. Gauthier last visited USC on March the 5th and he got the chance to go inside the offense and the quarterback position with Bobo. “I met with Coach Bobo for two hours and talked about life and football,” he said after that visit. “And I met with Coach Muschamp and Bobo In Muschamp’s office for about an hour and discussed how interested they are. I am a top priority. I told them they are definitely a top school and I’m looking to make a decision soon.” According to MaxPreps stats, last season Gauthier passed for 2401 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. As a sophomore, he passed for 2088 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. Rivals rates him as a 4-star prospect and the #14 pro-style quarterback in the country. He’s ranked as the #26 prospect in Georgia by Rivals. 247Sports rates him as a 3-star prospect, the #18 pro-style quarterback nationally and #38 prospect in Georgia. Gauthier is the third new commitment for the Gamecocks’ 2021 class which now counts five members with two specialists carried over from the 2020 recruiting season.
  13. Tuesday Recruiting Report March 17, 2020 South Carolina offered 2022 DE/TE Eli Hall (6-3 250) of Shelby, NC. He also has an offer from Akron. South Carolina target LB Trenilyas Tatum was offered by Minnesota. South Carolina target LB Raneira Dillworth of Kernersville, NC was offered by Michigan State.

  14. Monday Morning Recruiting Highlights March 16, 2020 / Recruiting WR Mario Williams of Plant City, FL, who has Clemson and South Carolina offers, did not include them in his top of Georgia, Alabama, LSU, Florida, and Oklahoma. New South Carolina offers last week went out to 4-star RB AJ Green (5-11 190) of Broken Arrow, OK, DL Dejon Robinson (6-3 288) of ASA College in Brooklyn and DL Will Thomas (6-3 286) of Raleigh. Some other offers for Green are LSU, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Nebraska. He’s rated the #2 prospect in Oklahoma in the 247Sports composite. South Carolina's target CB Nyland Green was offered by Florida. South Carolina target WR Raheim Sanders was offered by South Florida. South Carolina target DB Ryan Barnes was offered by Georgia Tech.
  15. Carroll gives the latest on Gamecocks and visits By Phil Kornblut / March 12, 2020 / Recruiting / Leave a Comment Lovasea Carroll Former USC commitment RB Lovasea Carroll of Warrenton, GA and IMG Academy in Florida is ready to dance the dance again with the Gamecocks. He committed last May and then decommitted the day after the Gamecocks loss to North Carolina. There wasn’t much contact between the two for the next three months, but conversations resumed in January and remain regular to this day. “I talk to Coach (Will) Muschamp a lot,” Carroll said. “He sends me a quote everyday and we’ll talk almost twice a week, or I’ll talk to Coach Mike (Bobo). We talk about like how I’m a priority for them and they would love to have me.” There have been significant changes on the Gamecock offense since Carroll’s initial commitment. Thomas Brown no longer is running backs coach, Bobby Bentley is back coaching running backs and Bobo is the new offensive coordinator. The changes are something Carroll said he’ll have to sort thru. “I feel like this was a big move and I really hadn’t flipped thru it yet,” Carroll said. “I’m going to go on my visit and I hope I get more Intel on it and stuff like that.” Carroll’s only unofficial visit thus far this year was to Florida. He goes on spring break next week and he plans to see USC, Georgia and Auburn. He has set official visits with USC April 3rd, Auburn in April and Tennessee June 5th. He also plans to take officials to Georgia and Florida. Right now, Carroll said Florida is the team to beat. “I’ve visited there a lot and visited there recently,” Carroll said. “I feel like I can come there and play early.” Carroll missed much of his junior season with a shoulder injury which he said is fine now. The year before he rushed for nearly 1500 yards.
  16. Latest on Gaffney DL Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins By Phil Kornblut / March 13, 2020 / Recruiting Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins Gaffney DL Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins has taken unofficial visits to USC, Clemson, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Georgia. His most recent visit was to Knoxville March 8th. Once recruits are allowed to return to schools for unofficial visits, he plans to go back to USC and Tennessee, and take other visits to Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, North Carolina and NC State. The Gamecocks have made Ingram-Dawkins a recruiting priority with Will Muschamp keeping up a steady line of communication. “Me and Coach (Will) Muschamp talk every day,” Ingram-Dawkins said. “He texts me every day, checks up on me. Sometimes he calls. No specific thing every day, different things every day. We’ve got a tight relationship. I keep up with them. They are recruiting me hard, like the home school should.” Ingram-Dawkins also is in touch with new Gamecock defensive line coach Tracy Rocker. Their relationship dates back to win Rocker was at Tennessee. “I already had a relationship with Coach Rocker when he was at the University of Tennessee,” Ingram-Dawkins said. “They were recruiting me, and they still are recruiting me. He was there, so I’ve already had a relationship with Coach Rocker, so that just made it better when he came to the home state school. We have a real tight relationship that is still the same.” It would appear things look good for the Gamecocks with Ingram-Dawkins. But he’s not at the point yet to name them, or anyone, as a favorite. “I really don’t have a special feeling for anybody right now,” he said “I’m just really concerned with enjoying the recruiting process and get some good things out of it and just find out what’s best for me. So, really right now, I’m really not leaning nowhere. I’m just enjoying it. No school is over another school right now. I like South Carolina. It’s my home state. It’s a great school with great coaches and great atmosphere and great tradition. I like that place.” Clemson, Ingram-Dawkins said, has not showed much interest to this point. And that’s not a problem for him. “Not really worried about. If they come, they come,” Ingram-Dawkins said. “That’s my home state school, too. If they show love, I’ll show love back. As of right now, I haven’t heard from Clemson.” Ingram-Dawkins also has offers from Syracuse, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Michigan, Oklahoma, Kansas, Penn State, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Florida State. He said he will be graduating early and is looking to make his decision in late summer or midway thru his senior season.
  17. Gamecocks will sign 4 star RB ZaQuandre White of Iowa Western JC Wednesday January 30, 2020 Per GamecockCentral, Gamecocks will sign 4 star RB ZaQuandre White of Iowa Western JC Wednesday. White committed to USC December 12th but needed to complete academic work before his take by the Gamecocks could be confirmed. White has been at his home in Ft. Myers, FL
  18. Four-star LB includes Gamecocks in his top eight By Phil Kornblut / March 10, 2020 / Recruiting LB Trenilyas Tatum of Jonesboro, GA named a top eight of USC, Tennessee, Louisville, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech and Virginia. He visited USC the last weekend of January and he talked on the phone with Will Muschamp last week. Muschamp, Tatum said, reaches out to him practically every morning. “He sends me inspiration quotes to get the day started and stuff,” Tatum said. “I hear from Coach (Tracy) Rocker, Coach (Travaris Robinson) T-Rob. I hear from all of them. Sending me stuff with their spring ball getting started and inspirational sayings and good morning and stuff. I’m most definitely going to try to get up their for the spring game.” Mississippi State and Georgia, Tatum said, also are keeping up strong contact. He was supposed to visit Georgia last Wednesday but couldn’t make it. From his top eight, Tatum has settled on outright favorites, but he is strong on the Gamecocks. “They are definitely top three,” Tatum said. “Not many head coaches reach out like Coach Muschamp. It’s a school for defensive players. I know there are a lot of defensive players every year going to the (NFL) Draft and I know Coach Muschamp will help make that happen for me.” Tatum is a Mike linebacker and is ranked 15th nationally in the 247Sports composite. Last season he had 91 tackles with 31 tackles for loss and 14 sacks.
  19. Speedy Alabama receiver commits to Gamecocks March 1, 2020 Sam Reynolds WR Sam Reynolds (5-10 183) of Alabaster, AL is known for his speed on the field and on the track. He also showed his speed in making a decision when he committed to USC coach Will Muschamp and recruiter Bobby Bentley while on an unofficial visit Sunday with his parents. It was his first visit to USC and he saw and learned enough to know he wants to join Muschamp and company in 2021. “We were talking about where I would fit in to their system with Coach Muschamp and Coach Bentley,” Reynolds said. “Coach Muschamp said when you commit to me, I commit to you, so you ought to be a Gamecock. When he said that, that kind of tough my heart, touched my family’s heart, and at that moment we all knew it was time to be a Gamecock.” The Gamecocks offered Reynolds last week and becoming his first Power 5 offer. Troy, Samford, Middle Tennessee State and North Alabama are his other offers. So, going into the visit, Reynolds had given some thought to jumping in with the Gamecocks. “Before I went I prayed on it,” Reynolds said. “Once I got there, it had everything I was looking for. My family loved it. It felt like a home away from home. The football aspect was wonderful, the education was great and they have the major I would love (Business Management). Everything seemed new, state of the art. You go to a lot of SEC schools and ACC schools and they can’t even compete with South Carolina in my opinion. The facilities were wonderful. It was the best decision for me.” Last season Reynolds had 36 catches for 360 yards and 5 touchdowns. He also averaged 25 yards on kickoff returns. He liked the fact Muschamp and Bentley, and receivers coach Bryan McClendon, have a plan for him in the offense. “They love my speed,” Reynolds said. “They said they wanted to get me in mismatches and let me go to work in the open field. They said I’m going to be like a gadget or a toy like Deebo Samuel and Ace Sanders. They can move me around, put me at back, slot, outside receiver and get me out in space and create mismatches.” Reynolds reported has run his best 60 in 6.93 and the 100 in 10.76. He also drew a track scholarship offer from Colorado State. Reynolds gives the Gamecocks four counters toward the 2021 class at this point. He said he will return to USC in three weeks and plans to bring with him his close friend QB Will Crowder of Gardendale, AL and teammate WR JB Mitchell.
