  1. Gamecocks sitting well with PG Myles Tate July 22, 2019, | sportstalk.com USC did not make the final five with Dorman standout 6-9 PJ Hall but the Gamecocks are in much better shape with his teammate, highly acclaimed PG Myles Tate. Tate is coming off an appearance at the Chris Paul CP3 Elite Guard Camp and this week he plans to move forward with his recruiting. He plans to review all of his offers and then narrow his list to the schools he will visit before making a decision prior to his season. Tate’s most recent offer came Sunday from Pitt. He also has offers from Clemson, College of Charleston, South Florida, Coastal Carolina, Presbyterian, Wofford, Appalachian State, Virginia Tech and Murray State. “We are just going to look at their rosters and what they have to offer, and what kind of systems they run and things like that, and how I would fit,” Tate said. “South Carolina is a good fit for me I think. It’s at home so family and things, that won’t be a problem. The school, I just like. I like Coach (Frank) Martin a lot. I feel like I can fit there and play to the best of my abilities. They’ve been showing me a lot of love for a long time. That’s important to me. Loyalty. They’ve been watching me since the summer of my 10th grade year. That really means a lot.” And heading down the stretch of his recruitment, Tate said the Gamecocks are continuing to show their strong interest. “I talked to South Carolina last Thursday,” Tate said. “They were asking me how I was playing in Alabama. They actually came to see me when I was down there, and I played pretty good. I talked to coach Bruce (Shingler) and he told me to keep doing my thing. I told him I was excited about South Carolina.” Tate took an unofficial visit to USC June 17th. He also took an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech in early June. Clemson was his first ACC offer but the Tigers have not been recruiting him. USC has two scholarships to offer for the 2020 class, though a third could become available if AJ Lawson leaves early for the NBA Draft

After that, he’ll be ready to concentrate on picking the college he will sign with in November. With that in mind, Hall plans to announce Friday his final five schools, and those will be the ones to get his five senior year official visits. He has already taken officials to Clemson and Florida. Those two, along with USC, Virginia Tech and Tennessee have been in his focus group, but there are other offers he has considered, such as Vanderbilt, Texas Tech, Maryland, Marquette, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Georgia and Wofford. Hall is relieved to have reached the stage of the recruiting process. “It is amazing,” Hall said. “I’ve thought about this my whole life. Getting to this point is really awesome, but there is still a lot more to do.” Hall said he has decided on the five schools but he has not notified any of its inclusion. He said coaches from each of the five scouted his games in last week’s event in Hoover, AL. “I’m going to wait (to notify the schools) until I put it out, but of course, the ones that are in there, they have a good feel, certain confidence, they are in there,” Hall said. ” Each program has their individuality so there’s not really a common thing about them. It’s a good list. I’m really comfortable with who I picked.” As he whittled his list to the final five, Hall said there certain things he looked for in a school that would make his list. “The coaching, of course,” he said. “The schemes. The offense and how I would fit in there. And them telling me their plans for me and how they would develop me.” Hall said he will take all five of his official visits before making his decision which will come soon after his final visit.
  6. Ten hoops names to watch in 2020 recruiting class July 15, 2019 The South Carolina basketball program will likely have two scholarships to work with this fall with the departure of two seniors and likely A.J. Lawson going to the NBA along with Seventh Woods going on scholarship. There are however, many players who are being recruited to fill those two positions.. The Gamecocks and head coach Frank Martin are certainly going to lose a pair of big men - Maik Kotsar and graduate transfer Micaiah Henry, so some of the chief targets are players who the staff believes can help in the post. Others, however, can help at multiple spots with another being a major in-state talent at point guard. (VIEW FULL ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS

And we got to spend quality time with the staff as well.” That time included some direct talk with Martin who got another chance to present Hall with his argument for why his program would be his best fit. “It was the same message of playing in front of your home state, in front of people that love you. He also talked about how much he will develop my game even from what it is right now.” Hall has had a lot of exposure to the Gamecocks via visits to Columbia and the coaches tracking his every move on the AAU circuit. The Gamecocks have a place at the table with him as he goes thru the decision making process, and today’s visit helped them hold on to that spot. “They didn’t move it up or down, but I did have a great time,” Hall said. “USC stands well with me.” Hall has been working with a top group of USC, Clemson, Florida, Virginia Tech and Tennessee.

  15. NCAA, not AAU, is behind newest recruiting showcase June 22, 2019 College coaches travel the country watching high school players on their AAU summer teams. But this weekend in South Carolina, those coaches were flocking to high school gyms in the Midlands for a different reason. Under new NCAA rules, college coaches are allowed to attend what’s being called “June scholastic basketball events,” organized for the first time along with the National Federation of High Schools, S.C. High School League and S.C. Independent School Association. The change was part of the NCAA’s reaction to the FBI’s probe into recruiting and aimed to strengthen relationships between college coaches and high school programs. Previously, coaches could only watch prospects on grassroots AAU circuits in April and July before players rejoined their high school teams. But the NCAA eliminated one of the two July evaluation periods for non-scholastic events. Nike EYBL will still hold its Peach Jam in North Augusta on July 11-15, while Adidas and Under Armour will hold their events in Indianapolis and Atlanta the same week. The SCHSL event concludes Sunday with the Top 100 camp at RNE. Fans also able to attend the games. According to the National Federation of High Schools, there are 30 scholastic basketball eventsover the next two weeks involving 41 state member associations. More than 60 teams are playing in the SCHSL event, while nearly 20 are playing in the SCISA camp. Some South Carolina teams, including state champions Dorman and Ridge View, also have been invited to take part in a scholastic event in North Carolina next weekend.

PJ Hall explains June 22, 2019 Dorman forward PJ Hall, South Carolina’s top player in 2020 class, updates his recruitment on June 21, 2019. .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%}
  17. PJ Hall backing off recruiting for a bit June 21, 2019, | sportstalksc.com Competition takes the place of recruiting the next few weeks for 6-9 PJ Hall of Dorman. This weekend he and his state champion Dorman team will be in Columbia for three games in the SC High School League Scholastic Basketball Event which is sanctioned by the NCAA. Then in July he’ll return to AAU action before shutting that down and preparing for his senior season. And that will include more recruiting activity. Hall has taken official visits to Florida and Clemson. And he recently added offers from Texas Tech and Vanderbilt. The Red Raiders went to the Final Four last season while the Commodores are starting over with new coach Jerry Stackhouse. His other offers include USC, Clemson, Maryland, Marquette, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Wofford and the College of Charleston. Hall took advantage of the new rules with allow five official visits as a junior and then five more as a senior. So the two he’s already taken don’t cut into the total he can take as a senior. But it will be a little while before he goes back on the road for visits. “I’m going to take a little break from that,” Hall said. “I’m going to wait until the fall so that I won’t burn my senior officials, because of the rule with the junior officials. I’ve already been to Florida and Clemson and I’ll probably go back to those. And there’s Tennessee. I’ve also been talking to Virginia Tech a lot, too. Georgia Tech, and maybe if I get a good feeling from somebody else. And maybe South Carolina, too.” Clemson and USC continue to recruit Hall as a priority. Each watched him closely in the recent Top 100 camp at Virginia, and each has detailed out how he could excel in its program. “Both are saying how they’ll let me play in their system,” Hall said. “At Clemson, I got the chance to watch them practice and what they’re doing is really flowing to the elbow, and they were saying how that’s how I would flourish in the games. South Carolina, they would let me play on the perimeter, but still keep me down low.” Hall said it would be August or September before he resumes his official visits. He still plans to sign in November and said no school has emerged as a favorite.

  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
