USC offered 2021 CB Jordan Hancock of Suwanee, GA and 2021 DB Damond Harmon of Highland Springs, VA. 2021 OL/DL Nick Barrett (6-3 323) of Goldsboro, NC made a visit to USC for the Clemson game. ” My experience for the visit went good. But what stood out to me the most was how we rode the bus to the stadium, I haven’t been too many different colleges, so that was first for me. Another thing that stood out to me was the facility. Also, the staff was good. I felt comfortable around them, and any questions that I asked were answered.” 2021 OL Cody Bradford (6-3 270) of Flowery Branch, GA made an unofficial visit to USC for the Clemson game. “The visit was great The brand new facility and weight room were amazing, and the atmosphere at the game was awesome. What I liked was how they work you hard but also take care of you in the recovery room. All around great time. I talked to coach Wolford, coach Bentley and coach Lattimore mostly, and they just told me to keep grinding and working and to have fun with it and hopefully I can come back.” Bradford has not been offered, and he also visited Furman this season. 2022 DB Jeadyn Lukas of Maulin visited USC unofficially for the Clemson game. “The facilities were nice and I liked the atmosphere in the stadium.” Lukas also visited Clemson this season.

Morris plans to announce his college decision December 17th and then shut down his recruiting. The Gamecocks were the first program to offer him and that has stuck with him throughout the process. “South Carolina was the first school that offered me, so the relationship that I have with South Carolina has been the one that I’ve had longer than with any other school,” Morris said. “I’ve been going there since I was a freshman, so it’s just the bond I’ve made with the staff.” Morris visited all of his finalists this season with Auburn getting the last visit for the Iron Bowl.

Five of the six 247Sports crystal ball predictions are for Burch to Clemson with the other having going to USC. But a new prediction hasn’t been entered since June. The 6-foot-5, Burch has kept his recruiting quiet for the most part and hasn’t done many interviews.

Along with USC, Williams has offers from Oregon, Minnesota, Toledo and Wake Forest. Williams has not yet visited USC but he plans to in January at the request of recruiter Travaris Robinson. “He said he wanted me to come down to see the campus, and he loved my film and he decided to offer,” Williams said. “It feels good. I appreciate the offer and I want to go down and see how they treat their players, is it a family or is it just football.” Williams has the Gamecocks among the schools standing out the most to him right now along with Wake Forest, Oregon and Minnesota. This season he went to games at Florida State, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Michigan State. Virginia Tech was by the school Wednesday to check in on Williams. Thru the season he said he also saw recruiters from UCLA and Auburn come by his school, and he’s expecting USC and PItt to visit later this month.

  8. Gamecocks reach into Oklahoma with tight end offer Dec. 04, 2019, | sportstalk Carolina has not recruited the state of Oklahoma much over the years, but tight ends coach Bobby Bentley identified a target he likes in 2022 TE Andre Dollar (6-5 222) of Mustang and made him an offer over the weekend when he was in for an unofficial visit for the Clemson game. Dollar has also been offered at this point by Liberty, Georgia Southern, Evangel and Southern Miss, but his list is expected to grow with Power Five offers over the coming months. For now, he’s happy to get that first big time offer from the Gamecocks. “I’ve grown up watching SEC football, so it was an amazing feeling to receive it,” Dollar said. “They’ve been in touch for a couple months, so when it was finalized, I felt thankful and appreciative. I like how South Carolina incorporates tight ends into their offense in many ways. I also loved the facilities that I got to experience on Saturday. They have some of the best coaches in the nation, including coach Bentley. They like how I can be used in many different ways and I’m very reliable in tough situations. They like my height and build as well.” Dollar also has taken visits to Georgia, Oklahoma and Stanford. From what he saw on his visit last weekend, and with the offer from the Gamecocks, Dollar has put the Gamecocks in a strong position, early in his recruiting, along with Georgia and Oklahoma. “They are definitely higher up on the list,” Dollar said. ” From relationships to communication to overall enjoyment. I’ve been to some other colleges on unofficial visits , and South Carolina was by far the best.” This season Dollar has 15 catches for 240 yards and 2 touchdowns.
  9. DE Yaya Diaby set for an official visit with Gamecocks in January Dec. 04, 2019, | sportstalk Gamecocks involvement with 3 star DE Yaya Diaby (6-4 255) continues to be hot and the two have set up an official visit to Columbia for the third weekend in January. Diaby is a native of Riverdale, GA and was the leading tackler for the Bulldogs this season with 58 tackles. He also had 16 tackles for loss and 5 sacks. He’s a recruit whose stock has steadily climbed throughout the season to the point he has numerous major offers to choose from. This weekend Diaby will take an official visit to Kansas State. Next weekend he’s set to see West Virginia. He also has Tennessee, Utah, Texas Tech, Central Florida, Houston and Arizona working him for visits. He will not sign early so he’ll have time for more visits in January and could set two more besides the one to USC. The Gamecocks were one of the latter teams to get in to Diaby with an offer, but his coach at GMC Bert Williams said that’s no problem for the Gamecocks and there’s obvious strong interest from his player’s part. “I think he is,” Williams said. “He has had some good talks with (DL coach) John Scott apparently. He’s wide open. I would say if there’s anybody potentially in the lead it would be Louisville simply because of longevity. They were in there back in the spring and have the longest amount of time with him. He really hasn’t given an indication one way or another. Staying close to home is not a big deal for him. He’s kind of open to that, to going farther away, going to where he feels is the best place for him. He wasn’t recruited much coming out of high school so this is the first rodeo for him.” Williams said because the recruiting process is so new to Diaby, and because he’s not signing until February, he’s not rushing the process. “He’s being real analytical with the process,” the coach said. “He’s pretty good about thinking thru and talking thru the pros and cons of what he’s looking for. He’s got his head on straight. I think he’s going to make a good decision one way or another. He’s got a lot of good opportunities.” USC has had a lot of success recruiting the Milledgeville, GA junior college over the years, and the Gamecocks have two GMC graduates on the roster right now. That, Williams said, can only help them with Diaby. “I’m sure it doesn’t hurt,” Williams said. “He knows guys that’s been there, played with guys that have been there, or siblings that’s been there. He’s at least indirectly familiar with Columbia. Certainly that level of familiarity is a benefit. We’ve got a couple of guys that are there now.” Diaby visited Louisville and Auburn unofficially during the season.

  11. Gamecocks add another target to its 2020 recruiting board Monday with an offer for WR Ger-Cari Caldwell Dec. 03, 2019, | sportstalk Gamecocks add another target to its 2020 recruiting board Monday when Will Muschamp offered WR Ger-Cari Caldwell (6-4 290) of Northwestern. The Shrine Bowl selection is a former East Carolina commitment. Along with USC, he’s also added fresh offers from Duke, NC State, Wake Forest, and Baylor. Caldwell grew up a Gamecock fan and he was thrilled to get the offer. “This offer is big time,” Caldwell said. “It’s close to home and I’ll be playing at a high level. South Carolina likes my ability to catch the ball at the highest point. They also love my breakaway speed (4.48) once the ball is in my hands. I think I would fit in there as an outside receiver who can line up and get the jump ball, and with my breakaway speed, I can catch the short route and take it to the house.” This season Caldwell had 51 catches for 744 yards and 7 touchdowns and had over 1000 all-purpose yards. USC recruiter Bobby Bentley was by Northwestern today to visit with Caldwell as the Gamecocks have just started their recruiting efforts. He did not make it in for a game this season thought he was invited for Saturday’s Clemson game. He did attend a camp at USC last summer. The offer might have come a little later in the process, but Caldwell is glad that it did. “South Carolina is actually my dream school,” Caldwell said. “I had dreams about getting this offer. I dreamed of even going to the school. I have thought about it (committing) but I’m going to wait for a second, but I am thinking about committing. I don’t know when a particular commitment will come out, but a commitment is in mind. They are an option. They are definitely up there.” Along with seeing Bentley and Wake Forest recruiter Kevin Higgins at his school Monday, Caldwell also talked on the phone with Muschamp who made the official offer. “He just saw my film and he thought my film was amazing and that I could be just a good player for the program,” Caldwell said. This season Caldwell attended games at East Carolina and Wake Forest. This weekend he will take an official visit to Wake and next weekend he will go to Baylor. He is not signing early so he won’t take his official visit to USC until January. Caldwell also is a basketball player and runs track for the Trojans.

Everything was smooth man.” The Gators apparently are very impressed with Boone and indicated to him they will continue to pursue him with a lot of interest.

  16. RB ZaQuandre White, I love coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (Thomas) Brown, the running backs coach Dec. 02, 2019, | GCF Staff Report USC had a bad day on the field Saturday against Clemson but off the field, the Gamecocks proved to be a winner with RB ZaQuandre White of Iowa Western JC. He has an offer from the Gamecocks and this past weekend he and his parents came in from their Ft. Myers, FL home for their first up-close look at the program. White has his choices down to USC and Tennessee and the Gamecocks made a good first impression. “I loved the atmosphere. I was around some of the players and I love how they interacted with me,” White said. “I love coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (Thomas) Brown, the running backs coach. Everything felt like a family. It wasn’t anything about them selling me, it was about, at the end of the day, it’s business and I feel like that this would be a good fit for me. I just feel like I’m an all-around back and can do it all. I just feel like they’ll have a playmaker coming.” White said he spent much of his time with fellow Floridian Rosendo Louis and he got the chance to check out the football facilities, the dorm and, most important to him, the academic side of campus. “I really want to be somebody with good academics and they (players) said they make sure they are on top of you and you’re really destined for greatness over there,” he said. “The weight room was huge. I love how it is. I saw some new devices I hadn’t seen before at any other school. The stadium, when they played Clemson, I think they had close to 80-thousand people there, so I liked how the fans supported the football team.” White, who began his college career as a linebacker at Florida State redshirting in 2017 and playing in 2018, did not commit to the Gamecocks, but doing so would not come as a shock based on how he was feeling after the visit. “I talked to mostly all the coaches and we felt like we’re on the same page, all on the same plan so when I get there,” White said. “They feel like it’s a good fit and I’m just going with the flow.” And that flow will include an official visit to Tennessee December 13th. After that, White will have a few days to make his decision before the start of the early signing period December 18th. The new contact period began Sunday and White said Brown is planning to come out to his school Friday. Saturday 4th ranked Iowa Western plays #8 Hinds JC of Mississippi in the Graphic Edge Bowl in Cedar Falls, IA.

  21. Forecast for 2020 Top Targets / November 25, 2019 / GamecockCentral.com No Burch Gamecocks have 3 to 4 scholarships to offer. I would love to get Grimes but I feel he will be heading to Bama and for Murphy Tarheels. It will be a top 20 class but not what is needed here. Need top 5 and 10 classes to make the jump in talent. Basically Gamecocks with this talent will be 7 to 8 win season at best. Keep the Gamecocks close to the middle of the pack in SEC at best and lacking to boost wins over the taters.

  22. Recruiting updates on Gamecock targets remaining Nov. 27, 2019 Look for Grimes to go OU. The Gamecocks have a backup plan in place with 3 star DE Yaya Diaby (6-4 260), a native of Riverdale, GA who attends Georgia Military JC. I did not think we would land him anyhow. The good news here lookout for Burch here. The family has really done a job keeping any outside the family out of the lope. Bell spent the weekend visiting Florida. Lots of paysites CB say 100% Gamecock. Not so fast my friends. Whitehead most likely Tennessee bound and Tisdol looking more and more like grade issues here. Best shot out of this group Burch and Bell.

  23. Gamecocks offer two one is the back up plan for Grimes Nov. 27, 2019, | sportstalk Gamecocks now have offered a pair of players Tuesday, one in the 2020 class and one in the 2021 class. The ’20 offer went to DE Yaya Diaby (6-4 260), a native of Riverdale, GA who attends Georgia Military JC. It’s well known the Gamecocks have been waiting on decisions from DE Reggie Grimes of Brentwood, TN and Jordan Burch of Hammond. The Gamecocks may have concerns about Grimes and Burch and thus reached out to Diaby, or they might want him on his own merit. “They (Gamecocks) are in the game and he likes them,” said GMC coach Bert Williams. “They definitely have a shot. His recruitment has really taken off the last 5-6 weeks with many FBS offers. Physically he is a nice combination of speed, length and power in a frame that is still developing. He was a wide receiver in high school and only has about 16 months of defensive line training. He had two good years of development here with two defensive line coaches that played professionally. He also has a great attitude and is a work ethic guy too.” Diaby also has offers from Tennessee, Kansas State, Memphis, Louisville, which has visited officially last weekend, Arizona, Utah, West Virginia, Hawaii, Charlotte and Western Kentucky, Diaby led the Bulldogs this season with 58 tackles. He also had a team high 16 tackles for loss along with 5 sacks. For the ’21 class, the Gamecocks offered LB/WR Jabril McNeill (6-4 210) of Raleigh, NC. The offer seems to have put the Gamecocks in a good place with McNeill at this point in his recruiting. “I liked South Carolina growing up. That’s what makes this so special to me,” McNeill said. “And it’s my first SEC offer. What they like about me is I’m tall but I can run. And I’m still 16, so they know I still have a lot of potential in me.” This season McNeill has been to Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Duke and NC State. He also has offers from Virginia Tech and Appalachian State.
  24. Decision week for Gamecocks target Grimes Nov. 25, 2019, | sportstalk USC football coach Will Muschamp has called Thanksgiving “just a meal”, and his will go down a lot easier Thursday if he lands the commitment of DE Reggie Grimes Jr. of Brentwood, TN. Grimes, the son of the former Alabama standout of the same name, has been a heavily recruited prospect. He named a top six in April and USC was in that group. Grimes took an official visit to USC in June and returned for an unofficial visit in September for the Alabama game. Following his official visit, Grimes recounted what he liked most about his time there. “How open the players were,” Grimes said. “How the coaches were determined to do things the right way, including little stuff, where they’re trying to change the culture there. The way they play, how fast they play, how smart they play, stuff like that.” Grimes also took official visits to Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Florida State.
