Gamecocks land in TJ Moore's top eight, make strides with Dake June 16, 2016 Making the cut - 4-star 2017 offensive lineman TJ Moore of Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, someone who has been considered a Gamecock lean for some time, released his top eight schools on Twitter Tuesday and South Carolina made the cut. Moore is high school teammates with 2017 Gamecock OL commit Eric Douglas, and that connection is one that seems to bode well for South Carolina. Many feel that Moore will eventually end up in Columbia, which would be another big addition to the 2017 class. - The Gamecocks also made the cut for 2017 3-star cornerback Tavyn Jackson of Tallahassee, Florida when he released his top five schools on Twitter Tuesday. Jackson currently holds offers from Auburn, Mississippi State, Indiana and others. He performed well at Will Muschamp's camp the last couple of days and expects to be back in Columbia sometime in July. The Gamecocks should be a player with Jackson until the very end of his recruitment, which very well could come down to South Carolina and Auburn. Gamecocks get back in the game with 5-star QB One big-time prospect that it seem the Gamecocks have made some headway with is 2018 5-star quarterback Dakereon Joyner of Fort Dorchester High School. Joyner is one of the most coveted athletes in the 2018 class nationwide and was long considered a strong lean to Clemson before the staff change at South Carolina last fall. However, since that time, Will Muschamp and the new staff have gone out of their way to rebuild connections with Joyner. Those efforts seem to be paying dividends. There is some traction of Joyner trending South Carolina's way in recent days, which is an astounding accomplishment when considering where the Gamecocks stood with him just six months ago. Joyner has made multiple visits to Columbia and seems very receptive to what the program has to offer. In addition, South Carolina has made it very clear to him that they view him as a quarterback at the next level and are recruiting him as such, which is something some schools have not yet agreed to with him. Joyner sees himself as quarterback and wants to play quarterback at the next level, so these developments are just another big step in the right direction for the Gamecocks. While no commitment is imminent and there is still a long way to go in his recruitment, Joyner is one of several can't-miss in-state prospects in the 2018 cycle. Landing him would send a message both in-state and nationally that the Gamecocks are on their way back, as well as solidify the quarterback position at South Carolina for the foreseeable future. New offers in Georgia, Tennessee - South Carolina extended on offer Tuesday to 2018 offensive lineman Christian Armstrong of Warner Robins, Georgia after his strong showing at the Will Muschamp camp. Armstrong has tremendous size at 6'4, 315 pounds and an impressive offer sheet that includes Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Tennessee and others. He is certainly a prospect to keep an eye on going forward as far as the Gamecocks are concerned. - 2018 cornerback Brendon Harris of Chattanooga, Tennessee received an offer from South Carolina on Tuesday, just one day removed from getting an offer from Clemson. https://twitter.com/youngLharris/status/742724156412809216 Harris stands 6'2 and shows ball-hawking skill in the secondary as well as good vision and playmaking ability in the return game. He is sure to see his offer sheet grow before his recruitment is over.

South Carolina coaches faced an unfamiliar speed bump as they set out on the class of 2014 recruiting trail.Where are the scholarships? The Gamecocks on Nov. 30 honored five scholarship seniors before their final home game – Connor Shaw, Chaz Sutton, Jimmy Legree, Ronald Patrick and David Wilkins. Their five spots have been the starting point for the stars of tomorrow who will sign with the Gamecocks in February, but it’s 10 to 15 fewer scholarships than coaches normally have to work when looking ahead. “It changes the way you recruit,” said Steve Spurrier Jr., the team’s recruiting coordinator. “Last year we had 20 or 22. That’s a big base to start with. You can put 22 on the board. When you start with five and wait to see what happens, it gets a little trickier.” Going through the process with five known available scholarships impacts several recruiting strategies: 1. Coaches are even more selective in which high school players are offered and with which ones get recruited the hardest for a commitment. According to 247Sports, South Carolina has extended 152 verbal offers for the class of 2014, the fourth-fewest in the SEC behind LSU (125), Georgia (119) and Texas A&M (101). Tennessee leads the conference with 285 offers. 2. A prospect’s academic outlook is magnified. Taking a commitment from someone who may not qualify academically becomes riskier when that could lead to an unfilled spot. 3. The Gamecocks also don’t want to sign too many or too few prospects with the final scholarship numbers being anyone’s guess. “The numbers are low,” Spurrier said. “It’s really changed the way we focused in on this class, not being real sure what our numbers are going to be, and then trying to make sure we sign the numbers we have.” South Carolina won’t see relief next year from the 2012 NCAA sanctions that still affect how many players can be on scholarship. The Gamecocks will have 82 spots available for the 2014-15 academic year. The shift back to the full 85 scholarships happens with the class of 2015 and the 2015-16 year. Meanwhile, the class of 2014 grew to 15 last week when Chapman High wide receiver Tyshun Samuel pledged to play for the Gamecocks. More commitments are expected in the coming two months, with the Gamecocks in hot pursuit of prospects such as Havelock (N.C.) running back Derrell Scott, Suwanee (Ga.) defensive end Dante Sawyer and Georgia cornerbacks Wesley Green and D.J. Smith. The final tally should be in the neighborhood of 18 to 20 signees, but that won't be official until National Signing Day on Feb. 5. How the Gamecocks find a dozen or more available scholarships will play out in various forms of player attrition between now and when the class of 2014 starts to arrive in June. In fact, that process is already under way. On top of the five seniors, juniors Jadeveon Clowney, Kelcy Quarles and Victor Hampton are all expected to enter their names for the NFL Draft after the bowl game. South Carolina will also gain three scholarships from the departures of cornerback Ahmad Christian, kicker Nick St. Germain and offensive lineman J.P. Vonashek. That would put the team at 11 available scholarships, with other player transfers likely and the possibility that more juniors could decide to turn pro. The scholarship crunch is testing the old recruiting adage: The numbers always work out. “It’s one of the more inexact sciences that you can get involved in,” Spurrier said. “You never know until it’s over. You have to hang on and press on to recruit and sign the best players you can.” Class of 2014 commitments Name Pos Hometown Michael Scarnecchia QB Fleming Island, FL Joe Blue FB Dillon, SC Shaq Davidson WR Gaffney, SC Terry Googer WR College Park, GA Tyshun Samuel WR Inman, SC Kevin Crosby TE Bamberg, SC Kalan Ritchie TE Goose Creek, SC Donell Stanley OL Latta, SC Malik Young OL Piedmont, SC Abu Lamin DT Fort Scott, KS Taylor Stallworth DT Mobile, AL Jhaustin Thomas DE Athens, TX Bryson Allen-Williams LB Ellenwood, GA Al Harris Jr. DB Fort Lauderdale, FL Darin Smalls DB Summerville, SC
