  1. Some new video of 7’ 5-Star Gamecock legacy John Butler Jr. From this AAU season. Do you know anything on this kid doublea1971? Hope we can get in the picture with him IAmJamieShaw posted this on another site excerpt from an article John Butler Jr. is a Truly Unique Talent by Jamie Shaw phenomhoopreport.com Ask anyone around the state and they will tell you that John Butler Jr. is next up. If the recent run of talent tells you anything, coming from the state of South Carolina, that means something. Recently, South Carolina has produced some major talent. Especially the top player in each class, has been considered among the top prospects in the country. The likes of Sindarius Thornwell and LJ Peak, PJ Dozier, Seventh Woods, Jalek Felton and Nick Claxton, Zion Williamson, Josiah James, etc…have all claimed the top (two) spots in South Carolina as well as Top 30 or so spots in the nation. South Carolina’s 2021 class is lining up to be as good of a class as any of them. Even the 2017 class which saw nice players get recruited at the high major level. The 2021 class is shaping up to have no shortage of high major prospects, with ten or so players at this time looking to be recruited at that level. That group of players is led by 6’11” sophomore John Butler Jr. from Christ Church High School in Greenville, South Carolina. At the most recent Nike Elite 100 Camp, which brings the best underclassmen in the country together to compete each year, Butler measured an enormous 7’3” wing span.
  2. Mart Cross set to begin official visits Thursday May 30, 2019, | sportstalksc.com One of USC’s primary basketball targets for 2020, 6-7 Matt Cross of Beverly, MA, has three official visits scheduled, and he will begin his first one Thursday Indiana. Next weekend he will trip to USC and the weekend after that he will see Miami. The Gamecocks have been persistent in their recruiting efforts with Cross. Since making an offer, Frank Martin and assistant coach Chuck Martin have had their in home visit and have followed Cross along the AAU circuit. And they remain in regular contact via the phone and social media. “Just talking about how they see me in their program and telling me that they think I can come in and make an impact right away,” Cross said. “Asking me about getting ready for the visit and doing our thing down there. And just asking about my family. They talk to my family a lot to get to know everyone including my siblings.” The official visit Cross will make to USC won’t be his first visit to Columbia, He also was in for the Georgia game the end of last season. But the official nature of the visit will give him more time to look for deeply into the program beyond what he’s heard from Martin and Martin. “Just to see what it’s all about and just to see how the whole coaching staff interact with each other,” he said. “Just to see the vibe that it all has and just to see the atmosphere, what it’s all about down there. Being able to feel out whether they are as interested as I am, which I think they are considering they are getting me down for an official visit. And if their style fits my style and if I can come in and play in a year or two. I think that’s the most important.” Cross said he might take more official visits and is looking at Florida, Cincinnati and Iowa for those trips. But for now, he feels good about the three official visits he has set and said USC, Indiana and Miami stand as his top three at this point, with no leader.
  3. Seventh Woods decides on Gamecocks June 07, 2019 Former Hammond star guard Seventh Woods, who was a little used reserve in three seasons at North Carolina, has enrolled at USC and will join the team this fall as a walk-on according to GamecockCentral. Woods posted a two-second Instagram video that flashed his picture on a USC ID and included the caption, “USC ’20”. The Gamecocks do not have an available scholarship for this season, thus Woods would have to join the program as a walk-on. He also will have to sit out the season under NCAA transfer rules as he is not a graduate transfer. Woods was a high school sensation at Hammond with a highlight tape of high-flying dunks that was viewed millions of times. Woods committed to North Carolina in November of 2015 choosing the Tar Heels over the Gamecocks and Georgetown. But what was viewed in high school never was seen in Chapel Hill. He played in 94 games over his three seasons with the Tar Heels. Injuries slowed him some, but the accumulation of talent by Roy Williams had more to do with the lack of floor time. This past season was his most productive with Woods averaging 10.8 minutes and 2.5 points per game. He shot 42% from the floor and 64% from the line. Woods will take one of the scholarships vacated by the Gamecocks’ two seniors after this season. There’s also the expectation that guard AJ Lawson will leave for the NBA after his sophomore season opening a spot for Woods on the wing.
  4. Seventh Woods has a decision and will announce next week for USC, Michigan or Gonzaga May 30, 2019 According to Mike Gillespie of WOLO TV in Columbia, former Hammond and North Carolina guard Seventh Woods has a decision and will announce next week for USC, Michigan or Gonzaga.

Littleton, who played the last two seasons at Texas, has two years of eligibility. "Adding Destiny to our Gamecock family is a much-needed boost in our backcourt," Staley said. "She is a big guard who is a prolific scorer. Her offensive skill set will complement and strengthen our backcourt. She's a proven winner, and the FAMs will enjoy the passion she will bring to Colonial Life Arena." A 5-foot-9 guard, Littleton started 12 games last season at Texas and averaged the third-most minutes on the team at 24.2 per game. The 2017 McDonald's All-American averaged 8.4 points per game and was the Longhorns' second most efficient 3-point shooter, hitting 32.2 percent (37-of-115) from behind the arc. Littleton posted 12 double-figure scoring games among her 33 appearances in 2018-19, including 22 against Northwestern State and her highest scoring conference game of 16 against Kansas State. On the international stage, Littleton helped the U.S. to a 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Cup bronze medal, starting three games and finishing second on the team with 10.0 points per game. She went on to capture gold at the 2017 FIBA U18 3x3 World Cup. Littleton was the No. 33 overall recruit in the Class of 2017 and the ninth-rated guard in the class. She became the first girls' basketball player in California high school history to eclipse 4,000 career points and finished with 4,300 over her career, which ranks her among the top 25 scorers all-time in high school girls' basketball across the nation. In 2016-17, Littleton was named California Gatorade Player of the Year and California Ms. Basketball by Cal-Hi Sports. She was a MaxPreps Third-Team All-American and an honorable mention All-America selection by the WBCA.
  17. Cross sees a perfect fit with Gamecocks April 30, 2019' | By SportsTalk Radio Network Like basketball coaches from all over the country, USC’s Frank Martin was on the move last weekend checking out as many of his top targets as possible at the various AAU events around the country. Of particular interest to him and his staff was 6-6 Matt Cross of Woodstock Academy in Connecticut. Martin already has offered Cross and met with him at his school and home, and Cross made an unofficial visit for the Georgia game last season. So, the two sides have become very comfortable with one another. Martin made sure Cross knew they were in Atlanta to focus on him. “There was always a member from the staff there,” Cross said. “Frank was there the first game and then he had to head to Dallas. I got to talk to him thru text after because they are not allowed to talk to you while you there. Like I said before, I think it will be a great fit. They are my kind of guys. They don’t hound you. They are not all over you. They told me how they feel about me and they are going to leave it up to me. That’s the best part. I like how they do things and I think I’d be a great fit.” Cross said he and the Gamecock staff are so familiar with one another, and have such a good feel for one another, there’s not a whole lot more they need to tell him from a recruiting pitch standpoint. “I think I know how they feel about me,” Cross said. “We talk it up more and more and I need to get down there for an official in late summer before the high school season. I think I’ll get a lot from that. Like I’ve said before, they are old school and I come from old school people who I am around. I just think I know what I’m getting from them and I think I know how they feel about me.” Cross was outstanding in his four games in Atlanta averaging over 22 points per game, 6.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists. He showed his complete game to the recruiters and the result was several more offers. “I showed my versatility, that I can take it down low in a mismatch, that I can bring it outside, I stretch the floor well,” Cross said. “What coaches always tell me is they like my toughness. I think I showed some of that.” Some of those new offers include Indiana, Illinois, Miami, Butler, Creighton, Georgia Tech and Cleveland State. He also has offers from Penn State, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Tulane and St. Joseph’s. Besides USC, Cross said he’s not sure who will get his other official visits. He plans to wait until after he completes his AAU season and see what other offers come in before making visit plans.

  22. USC basketball pledge is ready-made for Frank Martin. ‘I like that tough love’ May 03, 2019 | THE STATE The story of how B.J. Jackson learned Jalyn McCreay would be an ideal fit for Frank Martin and South Carolina starts with McCreary — allegedly — ignoring his coach. A break in game action between Legacy Charter and Tri-City Christian (N.C.) led Jackson to share instruction with McCreary, Legacy’s star forward. Jackson’s tone was mild at the beginning, but it grew more stern as it became clear to the coach that McCreary was missing the point. “I was telling him to do something,” Jackson recalled Thursday, “and I said, ‘Do you hear me?’ And he walked off. And I said, ‘Do you hear me?!?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I hear you.’ (READ MORE)
  23. Owasso, OK - Collinsville graduate and Cowley County C.C. pitcher Brannon Jordan announced on Nov. 9, 2018 he had committed to play baseball for the Gamecocks. The 6-2, 195 RHP pitcher - a member of the 2019 class (for the 2020 season), Jordan was continuing down a well-worn path from Owasso to Columbia, SC that already held the footprints of past Cardinal standouts Jonah Bride and Braden Webb, past Gamecocks who are playing their trade in the MLB minor leagues. Jordan would take a side-road via the Junior College ranks at Cowley County Community College, but he has made a very notable mark on the JC records on Saturday April 27th, as he threw a 7-inning no-hitter against the NJCAA 12th-ranked team Johnson County. Jordan threw 7 strikeouts with 3 walks, in the 7-inning shortened game due to it being the first of a double-header played on Saturday. Jordan's Cowley County C.C. Tigers won 2-0. Jordan stands currently with the top ERA for a starting pitcher for Cowley County C.C., of 2.48, with a record of 4-2 in 9 starts, 32.2 IP, with 47 Ks and 11 BBs. For Brannon's efforts, he earned the NJCAA DI Pitcher of the Week honors: Congrats Brannon! Looks like help is on it's way for the Baseball program!
