  1. Muschamps recruiting press conference excludes 5-star DE Jordan Burch Feb. 05, 2020, | GCF STaff Report Five-star defensive lineman Jordan Burch the No. 8 player in the country according to the 247Sports composite ranking is the undisputed crown jewel of South Carolina’s 2020 recruiting class. But as of now Coach Will Muschamp just can’t talk about him just yet. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  2. Muschamps recruiting press conference excludes 5-star DE Jordan Burch Feb. 05, 2020, | GCF Staff Report Five-star defensive lineman Jordan Burch the No. 8 player in the country according to the 247Sports composite ranking is the undisputed crown jewel of South Carolina’s 2020 recruiting class. But as of now Coach Will Muschamp just can’t talk about him just yet. Why? Because he has yet to send in his signed letter of intent to USC, and NCAA rules prohibit coaches from publicly commenting on recruits until they’ve officially signed and joined the program. Burch participated in his Hammond School signing ceremony on Wednesday, National Signing Day, alongside high school teammate and fellow Gamecock commit Alex Huntley. 'Did you know' Often the case in signing day ceremonies nowadays, the piece of paper Burch sat down and signed in front of the cameras wasn’t actually his letter of intent. That’s commonly done before or after the ceremony and then faxed to the school. Only then can the program publicly acknowledge the signee. And in yet another twist in recruitment full of secrecy and speculation, Burch once again skipped interviews after the ceremony and his mother declined to say whether he had signed his LOI. The Post and Courier reported that Burch indicated he had, but Hammond coach Erik Kimrey said he was unsure if he had or not. Muschamp’s 4:30 p.m. press conference gone and done.Gamecocks has yet to acknowledge Burch, meaning he hasn’t sent in his letter of intent. Huntley was officially recognized by South Carolina after his ceremony Wednesday. All Gamecock fan can say whats next!! Will he sign the Gamecocks LOI and send it in if and when is the question.
  3. Gamecocks hoping to put a ribbon on 2020 recruiting class on National Signing Day February 03, 2020 The end is here, as far as the 2020 recruiting season is concerned. National Signing Day (#2) is set for Wednesday. The signing period actually runs until April 1st but practically all unsigned prospects for the 2020 class will get it down Wednesday. And that will include one of the nation’s elite, 5-star DE Jordan Burch of Hammond School. Burch, you might recall, actually committed to the Gamecocks on National Signing Day (#1) December 18th but he did not sign his LOI. That was cool with everyone because he later explained he wanted to wait and sign with his teammates this Wednesday. What wasn’t cool with Gamecock fans was his decision to take an unofficial visit to LSU January 25th. The Tigers, he had said, were #2 on his list. Soon after that visit, at least one national recruiting analyst projected a flip by Burch to LSU. But, he still had an official visit left with Carolina and he took that this past weekend. The Gamecock coaching staff actually kick-started the weekend but turning out in mass for Burch’s basketball game Friday night at Heathwood Hall. And they had Burch and his mother to themselves since LSU coaches had already used their once-a-week contact last Monday while Burch was still in Baton Rouge. Burch and his mother went from the basketball game to the Gamecocks to begin their weekend. Burch attended the Carolina basketball game Saturday against Missouri, sitting behind the Gamecock bench, and went through the typical official weekend routine of meeting with coaches, touring facilities and the campus and hanging out with the players. Burch and his teammates plan to sign at the school Wednesday at 1:00 PM, and that will include 4-star DT Alex Huntley who has been committed to the Gamecocks since June. Gamecock website insiders, based on their writing over the weekend, now seem confident Burch will stick with the Gamecocks. Another priority target in for an official visit at Carolina over the weekend was 4-star WR Ger-Cari Caldwell of Northwestern. He has narrowed his decision to the Gamecocks and Tennessee after also considering Baylor, Wake Forest and East Carolina, where he was once committed. He will have an announcement ceremony Wednesday at 10:00 AM at his school. The Gamecocks have been out-front for Caldwell since offering in early December. The Gamecocks Wednesday also are expected to add 4-star RB ZaQuandre White (6-2 205) of Iowa Western JC. The former Florida State linebacker from Ft. Meyers, FL committed to the Gamecocks in December, but Will Muschamp never followed up with his “Spurs Up” tweet signifying a taken commitment. However, GamecockCentral reported last week the Gamecocks do plan to sign White on Wednesday. Two other commitments, P Kai Kroeger and PK Mitch Jeter, don’t plan to sign Wednesday at this point due to class numbers, but they plan to enroll in June, go on scholarship in August and count on the 2021 class.
  4. ‘We want Burch!’ Feb. 02, 2020 Gamecock fans roll out garnet carpet for coveted 5-star commitment. With the sheer number of South Carolina football coaches and staffers in the building at the Gamecocks men’s basketball game Saturday afternoon, one could only hope the last one out of the football building turned out the lights and locked up. Mere days before the February signing day, the Gamecock staff was out in full force as Frank Martin’s Gamecocks took on Missouri. Sure, a batch of player newcomers, several coaches and Connor Shaw were at Colonial Life Arena to be introduced at halftime. But after the roar went up when South Carolina’s most winning quarterback was recognized, the crowd turned attention to the unspoken star of the day. “We want Burch! We want Burch!” The scene was somewhat reminiscent of a Zion Williamson visit when the crowd chanted for him and Shaw’s predecessor as director of player development, Marcus Lattimore, was introduced. On Saturday afternoon, he sat between Muschamp and his younger son Whit. Burch’s mother was a seat over, all of them just behind South Carolina’s bench. The 6-foot-5, 275-pounder was plenty conspicuous with some blond dyed into his hair. When the crowd started chanting, he broke into a laugh and pointed across the court as Muschamp talked to him. Gamecock defensive ends coach Mike Peterson sat with Burch’s mother just about all of the game, and pretty much every USC football assistant was in the building with a large cluster of recruits. This came a day after a handful of current Gamecocks and at least seven assistant coaches were in person for Burch’s latest basketball game with Hammond. The Gamecocks are working hard to hold onto the crown jewel of their 2020 class. Burch, the No. 8 player in the country in the 247Sports Composite rankings, picked the Gamecocks ahead of the likes of Clemson, Georgia and LSU. He took a visit to LSU last weekend, creating some stir among Gamecocks fans. But this weekend was saved for his official visit, which meant USC’s staff will be the last one in his ear. Burch will be on campus through Sunday.
  5. 5 star DE Jordan Burch, 4 star Ger-Cari Caldwell will be on official visits to the Gamecocks January 31, 2020 Gamecocks will host two key official visitors on campus this weekend. they are 5-star defensive end Jordan Burch and Rock Hill (S.C.) Northwestern 4-star wide receiver Ger-Cari Caldwell The Gamecocks will have the final opportunity for 2020 prospects to take visits prior to Wednesday's National Signing Day. Burch, who last weekend took an unofficial visit to LSU is set to take his final official visit this weekend. After competing in a basketball game against Heathwood Hall on Friday night, Burch will make the short trip over to campus for his visit. Burch is set to sign on Wednesday at 1 p.m. during a private ceremony alongside his other Hammond teammates, including four-star South Carolina defensive tackle commit Alex Huntley and Colorado State quarterback commit Jackson Muschamp, Will Muschamp's son.
  6. There's another Markway Gamecocks will check January 31, 2020, | sportstalk TE Kyle Markway was a standout for USC in his final season of 2019. Markway caught 31 passes for 349 yards and 2 touchdowns. In December the St. Louis native decided not to take advantage of a sixth year of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft. There’s another Markway at the tight end position coming down the road, and that road could also lead to Williams-Brice Stadium. Mac Markway (6-4 240) of St. Louis is a cousin of Kyle’s. He is in the 2023 class meaning he is going into his sophomore season. As a freshman, Markway started for the largest 6A school in Missouri and helped lead De Smet Jesuit to a state championship. His recruiting is just starting to take off, and the midwestern area programs are highly involved. But the family history with the Gamecocks is strong and they will be a factor “My family loves Coach Bentley,” Markway said. “We will be visiting, but not sure when just yet. I am visiting four schools in March and a few more this summer. I cant wait to meet coach (Will) Muschamp and coach (Joe) Cox. My family loves the Gamecocks. The entire Markway family has had a great experience with Kyle and South Carolina.” Markway has several visits lined up in the weeks ahead, and he’ll be getting a good look around the Big 10 neighborhood. He’ll also take a trip down to the south part of Florida. “Visiting Michigan. They offered me as a tight end. Coach (Jim) Harbaugh is very cool,” Markway said. “Visiting Miami. They love me as tight end. Visiting Penn State for tight end. . Love how they use tight ends. Visiting Notre Dame for tight end. They love there tight ends. Visiting Iowa. My dad was a tight end there. They like me at a couple positions.” Markway said he had 7 catches and scored 2 touchdowns last season. MaxPreps named him a First Team Freshman All American.

  19. Feaster decision could come at anytime July 10, 2019, | sportstalksc.com One of the top undeclared grad transfers in the country is former Clemson RB Tavien Feaster. The Spartanburg native is finishing up his summer schoolwork so that he can graduate in August with a degree in Parks, Recreation and Tourism. Feaster said he has about two more weeks to go with his schoolwork, that includes a bio-lab and an internship with the City of Spartanburg Parks and Recreation Department thru which he has been working in camps and programs with young people. “100 percent. I’m going to graduate. That is no problem,” Feaster said Wednesday afternoon. Feaster said his football future has come down to two schools, USC and Virginia Tech. He has visited each this summer. He took an unofficial visit to Blacksburg where he got the chance to meet with head coach Justin Fuente and hear what he had to offer. “I liked it, I liked the players,” Feaster said. “I got to hang out with the offensive linemen.” And in the program they don’t have a feature running back, and running back is the only spot they are willing to take a grad transfer.” Feaster said Virginia Tech has remained in constant contact and he talked recently with recruiter Jafar Williams. As for USC, he said he hasn’t heard much from the Gamecocks since the dead period started. “I went to a 7-on-7 at South Carolina to watch my high school play, and I talked to the coaches while I was up there a little bit. They said I can come in and help them,” Feaster said. “Both schools have pros and cons. I couldn’t make a decision right now between the two. When I sat down and put it all on paper and in perspective, those two stood out.” As for any chance Feaster decides to return to Clemson, he has closed that door. “No sir, I think my time is up at Clemson,” he said. “I needed more opportunities at Clemson. I went from 1st team to third last spring (2018), and that was a blow. I thought this spring (2019) was my best spring, I feel like I had best my spring and left my mark there.” “I can carry a load for a team,” Feaster continued. “If I felt like I couldn’t carry the load, I wouldn’t have left Clemson. I feel like I’m the best in the country. I feel like given my opportunity, I will be the best in the country.” Graduation is in August but Feaster said he doesn’t plan to wait that long on deciding between the Gamecocks and Hokies. “As soon as my grades are in,” he said about a timetable. “But I could wake up one morning and just be feeling it, whatever I feel is the most comfortable situation, and getting the chance to accomplish what I want to accomplish.” Feaster leaves Clemson with career totals of 1330 rushing yards with 15 touchdowns, and 23 receptions for 183 yards and 1 touchdown. He played in 41 games, starting 11. His per carry average of 5.99 is second all time at Clemson behind Travis Etienne. Feaster was named Mr. Football in South Carolina following the 2015 season at Spartanburg High School when he accounted for over 2000 total yards and 22 touchdowns. He also was the state’s premier sprinter in high school and holds the state record for the 200 meters.
  20. Gamecock commit Luke Doty tried to recruit Tank Bigsby, Jaheim Bell to Gamecocks at The Opening, this is how July 12, 2019 South Carolina quarterback commit Luke Doty had the ideal opportunity to help the Gamecocks recruit some top targets. (VIEW FULL ARTICLE)
  21. Gamecock commit Luke Doty tried to recruit Tank Bigsby, Jaheim Bell to Gamecocks at The Opening, this is how July 12, 2019 South Carolina quarterback commit Luke Doty had the ideal opportunity to help the Gamecocks recruit some top targets. Where? At The Opening, Doty worked out with some of the best high school football talent in the country. And who happened to be there with him on a team but a pair of Gamecocks recruiting targets — the where explosive tight end Jaheim Bell and four-star running back Tank Bigsby. “I actually talked to them a lot,” Doty said. “They were on my team for The Opening finals, the 7-on-7, stuff like that. I got to talk to them a lot and be around them. (Gamecocks running back commit) MarShawn (Lloyd) and I, we’re definitely shooting our shot, giving our recruiting spiels to them. Jaheim decommitted from Florida, so I definitely think a flip is possible there. I think we’re in good shape with Tank too. “We get those two guys, I think we’ll be rolling.” Bigsby is the No. 50 recruit in the country in the 247 Sports composite rankings, a 2,000-yard, 206-pound tailback out of Callaway, Georgia. He’s been a top target for much of this recruiting cycle and the Gamecocks staff had been hoping to pair him with Lloyd, the No. 35 player in the land. Bell is the No. 377 player in the country, about 25 spots out of a four-star designation. The versatile 6-foot-2, 213 pounder projects to play the team’s smaller tight end spot. Bell posted 770 yards on 52 catches for Valdosta last season and played some direct-snap tailback. The quarterback’s message to both was simple. “Making sure they knew South Carolina was home,” Doty said. Doty had already spent some time with Bigsby, as the pair took their official visits on the same weekend. Getting a chance to work with both, he gave his impressions on the talent of each player. On Bigsby: “Tank is just a freak athlete. He can run it. He can catch it. He can get after it.” On Bell: “Jaheim is just really explosive off the ball. He can run any route in the route tree. He’s got some pretty great hands. ... He’s a big body. He can get off the ball really well. ... Definitely think we’re going to utilize his game in different situations. He can do it all.” South Carolina’s class currently has 14 members, plus a pair of transfers. That means nine or eight more spots depending on if USC can reel in Clemson transfer Tavien Feaster. If the Gamecocks were able to get Bigsby and Bell, they would likely be full at both spots for the 2020 cycle.

  24. Muschamp camp update June 19, 2019 South Carolina’s Will Muschamp football camps Wednesday’s had the 247’s top-rated player in CB Jairo Faverus from the United Kingdom part of the PPI group that works with international football players, they were in town as part of a tour of at least 15 college camps. Faverus is a West Virginia commit, other schools involved Penn State and Georgia Tech. Also Swedish tight end Victor Wikstrom. Wikstrom only claims a WVU offer, but he was getting a long look from Bobby Bentley during drills. Wikstrom stands at 6-foot-3, 235 pounds and moved well. ▪ Four-star TE Nick Elksnis out of Jacksonville Episcopal was in town today. He was chatting with Muschamp and Bobby Bentley as things started to ramp up. The 6-foot-6, 225 pounder is the No. 11 tight end in the country for 2021. He claims offers from FSU, Miami and Michigan. Last year, he reportedly had 225 yards and four scores on 17 catches for a 7-3 team. ▪ Four-star DE Naquan Brown the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder came down from Virginia Breach, reportedly with his high school teammate Myles Alston. Brown has offers from LSU, Michigan, Penn State, and LSU. The cousin of Virginia Tech’s Jaevon Becton, he had 12 sacks last season.
  25. Updates from Muschamp camp June 15, 2019 The South Carolina football program came off two days of 7-on-7 tournaments and lineman camp Saturday, with a smaller cadre of players at the Gamecocks indoor facility. But they had plenty of talent on hand. There were five official visitors spotted, none working out. The group included Mississippi safety Janari Dean, Conway defensive lineman Tonka Hemingway, Miami defensive lineman Elijah Roberts, Alabama tight end Eric Shaw, plus local commit Alex Huntley, who took his official this weekend. Hemingway is an in-state four-star who could be a big part of the 2020 class. Roberts is listed at 267, but in person, that number doesn’t quite capture the size of him. Shaw has posted some explosive numbers in high school and has a very large pair of hands. Shaw and Roberts are top-400 prospects nationally, at the high end of four-star talents. ▪ One interesting visitor was Justin Robinson from Eagle’s Landing Christian in Georgia. He’s a UGA commit and four-star recruit, and appeared to be hanging out with teammates who were participating. ▪ During the receiver and defensive back 1-on-1s, the coaches and some players were getting into it. They were betting pushups on who won, with folks such as Bryan McClendon and Israel Mukuamu doing pushups when their guy came out on the wrong end of the drill. Jaycee Horn was also into it, a vocal presence talking trash to folks on the offensive side and helping out some of the younger players. ▪ Former NFL All-Pro Joe Horn was in Saturday, not to see his son Jaycee, a star South Carolina sophomore, but to take his younger son Jaycob to camp. The younger Horn is 6-foot-1, 205 pound wide receiver/safety, he seemed to get some attention from the staff and holds an Ole Miss offer. He had 42 tackles on defense last year. Another brother in town was Alim Legette, younger brother of recent Gamecocks enrollee Xavier Legette. The two were throwing a ball around during lunch. The younger Legette was in with a group from Mullins High School. The younger Legette is a rising junior. He played JV QB and varsity wide receiver, catching passes from his older brother. He’s the No. 325 player in his class, and at the end of the camp, it appeared he and offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon were engaged in conversation and walking toward the football operations building. ▪ In terms of campers, offensive line was probably the most notable position. A few were 2021 tackle Yousef Mugharbil, a four-star out of Murphy, N.C., Colin Henrich, a guard out of Leesburg, Virginia, and Eli Henderson, a 2022 tackle out of Byrnes who holds a South Carolina and Georiga offer among others. ▪ An interesting pass rusher to watch was Lincolnton, N.C., product Travali Price. He’s 6-foot-3, 240 pounds heading into his junior season. He looked solid in drills and had 15 1/2 sacks last season.
