USC also was in strong pursuit but did not make the cut. “We were talking about really seeing the Gamecocks, but I just thought in my head I wouldn’t be happy and I didn’t want to waste their time,” Hall said Friday night from Los Angeles where his AAU team is playing the adidas Gauntlet Finale. “I’m just moving on to the other options.” USC coach Frank Martin had to cancel a scheduled in home visit in May and did not reschedule though he did meet with Hall and his teammate PG Myles Tate at school.

  7. Latest ESPN 300: http://www.espn.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/playerrankings/_/view/rn300jr/sort/rank/class/2020 Hopefully the Gamecocks can add most to the commit list but anyhow no Tisdo and Tank listed ahead of Lloyd. Interesting. 3. Evans 5* 6. Burch 5* 10. Grimes 5* 39. Bigsby 54. Lloyd 68. Murphy 124. Cowan 145. Doty 170. Walker 189. Hemingway 219. Wyman 221. Huntley 222. Kaba 228. Conley 258. Whitehead 270. Wannamaker
  8. Gamecocks target 6-5 Earl Timberlake of Hyattsville, MD will name his top seven schools next week. He has taken official visits to USC and Providence.
  9. South Carolina has only had 5 players that were deemed 5 stars commit to South Carolina in the programs history, since the star system has been in place. Muschamp’s signed 1 of those 5 stars with Zacch Pickens. Gamecocks stole one basically from Clemsons backyard. Muschamp has a chance to get two more with Burch and Grimes. That would be a total of 7 players rated as a 5 star player in South Carolina programs history. Muschamp if successful would have signed 3 of 7 in our history. Muschamp would have signed 43% of our 5 star players. Almost half of the 5 stars in back to back classes. The operations center with Muschamp’s recruiting ability. I believe will get us in the running. The foundation is being built, but the Gamecocks need Burch and Grimes to show that Carolina is a destination for elite players. The continuation of high 4 stars players are increasing. Lloyd might end up as a 5 Star. Progress is promising for the future. Definitely proud of the recruiting efforts. It’s difficult to get those 5 stars, because you are battling Georgia and Bama and Clemson and others.
  10. Hall ready for next step in recruiting process July 16, 2019, | sportstalksc.com 6-9 PJ Hall of Dorman will play in his final AAU event this weekend in Los Angeles. 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.
  11. 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
  12. July's Mock class 4* QB - Luke Doty 4* RB - Marshawn Lloyd 4* RB - Tank Bigsby 4* WR - Mike Wyman 4* WR - Rico Powers 3* WR - DaQon Stewart 4* TE - Jaheim Bell 4* OL - Tyshawn Wannamaker 3* OL - Jazston Turnetine (JUCO) 3* OL - Vershon Lee 3* OL - Trai Jones 5* DE - Jordan Burch 4* DE - Reggie Grimes OR Tonka Hemingway 4* DT - Alex Huntley 3* DT - Makius Scott 3* DE - Darrell Bailey 4* LB - Mohamed Kaba 4* LB - Len’neth Whitehead 4* DB - Ja’Qurious Conley 3* DB - Joey Hunter 3* DB - Dominick Hill 3* DB - O’Donnell Fortune 3* P - Kai Kroeger GT RB - Tavien Feaster GT LS - Matt Oliveira GT TE - Nick Muse I could see us utilizing the gray shirt for a prospect to make 1 more spot available; particularly given how down the next cycle is in state the number of quality targets we are still in on this cycle with such limited space. The Tank recruiting seemed to be in the Gamecocks corner, But now Georgia has stepped up big and will be a battle for his services, that being said still give the Gamecocks a very slit edge as of now. My gut tells me that we end up with Rico Powers or another WR to make 3 total. I also tend to think we won’t get 1 out of these 3 DL I just don’t know who yet (Grimes, Tonka Or Bailey). It seems they would want Bailey to wait until things shake out with Burch, Tonka & Grimes but with an upcoming visit & decision at July’s end.....I think they will take his commitment. Maybe they hold him off; maybe Tonka picks UNC; maybe Bama pushes for Grimes after all &/or maybe we lose the Burch sweepstakes. I think that we’ll miss on 1 of the DL targets & end up with Powers as a 3rd WR. I just truly believe Whitehead is more likely then Tisdol at this point. I think we made a big move on the camp visit & stand to trend upward with him. Tisdo is just perplexing to me & I could see him here, AU or some other school coming out of left field. I think things will start aligning up with USC & Len’neth Whitehead. We shall see
  13. Obinna Anochili-Killen, new USC basketball target JULY 13, 2019 Obinna Killen is one of the several basketball players South Carolina coaches scouted during the 2019 Peach Jam. .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%}
  14.

  15. Gamecocks miss on big one out of North Carolina July 09, 2019, | sportstalksc.com Will Muschamp’s recruiting success in the state of North Carolina has been duly noted, but Monday afternoon the USC head coach hit a roadblock when DE Myles Murphy (6-6 280) of Greensboro announced a commitment to North Carolina at a press conference at his school. Murphy picked the Tar Heels over USC, Florida and Alabama. Murphy took official visits to each of the finalists. His trip to USC in early June was his first one and he came out of that with the Gamecocks as his favorite. But North Carolina got the final official visit the weekend before the dead period. Apparently, Mack Brown was able to convince Murphy that joining his rebuilding efforts is a better move for him that joining the more established Gamecock program. Myles Murphy and family display their Tar Heel colors after his announcement (WFMY-TV twitter) “The love there is unreal,” Murphy told reporters following his announcement. “They love me down there. I’ve got a good relationship with all the coaches. It was a good vibe down there. It was hard, but I had to do what was best for me and make sure I get the right fit for the next four years and after that. South Carolina was leading at a point, they were, until I went to that official at UNC. I got the most live I’ve ever felt down there.” Murphy also told the reporters what separated UNC from USC in his final analysis was the difference in the relationship he felt for the two coaching staffs. “I had a good relationship, but I didn’t have a great relationship with the coaches at South Carolina,” Murphy explained. “Tim Cross at UNC was one of the best defensive line coaches I’ve ever met. He kept it real and that was one of the best parts of it. And I love Coach Brown. He kept it real and kept telling me I can follow in line with all the great defensive linemen that came here.” With Murphy off the board, the Gamecocks still have plenty of options at defensive end headlined by Jordan Burch of Hammond. The Gamecocks also have offers out to Desmond Evans of Sanford, NC, Jacolbe Cowan of Charlotte, Reggie Grimes of Brentwood, TN and Tonka Hemingway of Conway.

It definitely changed my life in ways that I didn’t know were possible.

He was directly coached by Alex Brink, a 10,000-yard passer at Washington State, and Craig Nall, a seven-year NFL veteran who backed up the likes of Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre. He also got some time with analyst Yogi Roth and chess pro Seth Makowsky. The Elite 11 is a 20-year-old quarterback competition that brings some of the best junior signal callers in the country together, while The Opening is a national camp for players of all positions. Doty said the focus was on mindset and improving his thinking as much as it was about throwing footballs. “A lot of it is mentality,” Doty said. “Just controlling the way that you think and the way you do things out there on the field and in life. That was really a main focus for this week. “I definitely think that’s going to take my game a long way.” Doty connected on 71.6 percent of his passes for 3,037 yards, 36 touchdowns and six interceptions.

But he was around plenty of other highly rated players last week, and he thought that also helped him. “I definitely think it lifted my game to another level,” Doty said. “Just being around those guys ... that have been highly recruited — obviously highly touted quarterbacks and athletes. I really just think it took everybody’s game to the next level. We were all pushing each other and pulling for each other as well.”

  21. 2019 Gamecock Recruiting class is full and has a nice diversity overall. The only thing lacking in the 2019 cycle was a top-notch running back, Gamecocks could feel those needs with 2020 class. Names to keep an Eye on are Five-star tailback MarShawn Lloyd and Four-star targets Tank Bigsby. Gamecock are in good with both. Gamecocks have a good chance at both at this time. On the defensive side lots of talented players, the Gamecocks are at this time involved with some instate and out of state top talent. If Boom can have a good season next year get to 8 to 10 wins would help in landing some of the top talents. This could be the class that can put them over the hump and possible rival the Class the ole Ball Coach had in 2007 to lay the groundwork for the success he had. 2020 class has started out with a bang. With the Ops building in full swing, this will be another exciting recruiting cycle to follow so let the commits commence!!

  24. Best of the running backs from Day 1 of The Opening Finals July 02, 2019 MarShawn Lloyd -- Lloyd, a strong four-star standout committed to South Carolina, was a bit of a prototype for many of the builds in this position group, which seemed to feature numerous guys in the 5-foot-9 to 5-foot-11, 200-plus range. He impressed on the hoof and showed encouraging quick-twitch traits during Cat-and-Mouse drills, particularly during the showcase at the end of the day's workout, when he won two reps against top linebacker competition. Tank Bigsby -- Bigsby's twitchiness caught our attention early during position drills and continued with a couple of nice reps in Cat-and-Mouse drills. Bigsby is another one of the backs with the broad-shouldered, low-center-of-gravity profile who is built well with the type of pad level and frame that could provide high-volume value at the next level, if needed.
