USC RB commitment Marshawn Lloyd July 12, 2019 USC RB commitment Marshawn Lloyd was quoted earlier this month at The Opening saying Georgia was still coming hard after him and he planned to visit Athens for the Notre Dame game. But Lloyd walked back some of those comments in a Thursday story written by Adam Friedman of Rivals. Lloyd acknowledged the talk of him visiting Georgia and Penn State, and he told Friedman, “I want to be in 100 percent with South Carolina.” Lloyd added that he’s not going on many visits and he doesn’t have any planned at this point. Lloyd did say in the article that Georgia is the other school he hears the most from besides USC, and Bulldogs running backs coach Dell McGee is staying on him.
Gamecocks commitment RB Marshawn Lloyd says no plans to change his mind July 03, 2019 The Instagram video didn’t have much to it. Uncommitted five-star California tailback Kendall Milton, who has offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State and just about everybody else out there, is prodding South Carolina football running back commit MarShawn Lloyd to say something on video, maybe a “Go Cocks.” Lloyd brushes him off, maybe sounding a tad furtive. It led to an apparent Georgia fan tweeting “Flip watch?” So Lloyd took to Twitter with a direct response.
Gamecocks RB commitment Marshawn Lloyd thinking about Georgia? July 01, 2019 Gamecocks RB commitment Marshawn Lloyd, interviewed at The Opening Finals by Kipp Adams of Georgia's 247Sports site, said Georgia remains on him hard, and he said Georgia RB coach Dell McGee told him he's not concerned with his Gamecock commitment because McGee does not believe he will stick to it. Lloyd told Adams he remains committed to South Carolina right now "and I will see where it goes from there." Lloyd said McGee has given him a lot to think about regarding Georgia and its RBU reputation. He said he hopes to take an official
Exclusive interview with South Carolina Gamecocks 5-star 2020 RB MarShawn Lloyd June 9, 2019 MarShawn Lloyd went through a rigorous recruiting process with plenty of teams wanting to land his services in their 2020 recruiting class. A five-star running back out of DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, Lloyd decided to take his talents to the South Carolina Gamecocks. (CLICK TO VIEW)
In his words: MarShawn Lloyd explains why he picked South Carolina May 29, 2019 South Carolina football scored a big recruiting coup in MarShawn Lloyd, a high four-star recruit rated among the top 30 prospects in the 2020 class. What led him to pick the Gamecocks over a slew of powerhouse programs. He explained that in a video with the TV show Sports Stars of Tomorrow. “The football atmosphere. Everyone down there worships football,” Lloyd said in the video. “The facilities, the coaches, pretty much everything down there is amazing and I can’t wait to go down there. That’s the reason I chose that place.” The DeMatha High School football star had long been reported to be leaning toward Georgia. If he makes it to signing day with USC, he’ll be the highest-rated back USC has signed since Marcus Lattimore. The Gamecocks have long been in need of a primary tailback. The past few years have been by committee, and USC has had one runner surpass 700 yards since the 2014 season. “I’m pretty much a downhill runner,” Lloyd said. “I’m always able to make a defender miss and breakaway speed is also a part of my game.” He had offers from a range of power programs, including Georgia, Penn State, Clemson, Alabama and Florida.
5 star RB Marshawn Lloyd talks about recent visit with Gamecocks April 12, 2019, | By SportsTalk Radio Network 5 star RB Marshawn Lloyd of Hyattsville, MD made his second visit to USC last weekend for the spring game. Lloyd is one of the Gamecocks primary running back targets as they look to sign at least two in the 2020 class. In a video interview at his school with Adam Friedman of Rivals, Lloyd said he very much enjoyed the visit and the Gamecocks are contenders, though he has a ways to go with his recruiting. “Met the coaches. Got closer to coach Thomas Brown. I hung out with some of the players to figure out the lifestyle down there. It was definitely different,” Lloyd said. “I really interacted with the players and it was very different and I liked it. I felt like I fit in well. Their offensive line is amazing. The running backs fit me as well. It’s a place where I can push myself and play probably early. Being able to have a coach like Thomas Brown and my coach now, pretty much not really a difference, that was a big up for them.” Lloyd also has visited Clemson and he mentioned the Tigers as one of his schools of interest. He also listed Penn State, Georgia, Notre Dame, Texas and LSU as other schools showing strong interest in him. He said he has been to Penn State three or four times and knows the staff well, and he knows Georgia’s reputation for running backs and is in daily contact with the Bulldogs’ running backs coach. Lloyd said he wants to play early wherever he lands. He’s running track now so he won’t take any more visits until after that season. And he’s not decided on his official visits.
Five star RB Marshawn Lloyd does not want to be the work horse on any school he chooses April 09, 2019 I'm not sure if the Gamecocks have a realistic shot at Lloyd or not. Reports seem to indicate that we're at least in a legitimate position to fight for him. If I were Thomas Brown, I'd try to get Bigsby and Lloyd into a room together and say, "You're each one of the top RBs in the country. Look at the guy next to you. If you both come to Carolina, that person is going to help you get better, and help preserve your body for an opportunity at a lucrative career after your time here is up." Think about what could have been for Marcus if there was another back on that team that could have taken the burden off of him on a more consistent basis. I'm not saying he would have avoided both knee injuries because they were pretty fluky anyways, but you just never know how things could have turned out. RB is one of the shortest life-cycle positions in the NFL. If a player wants to spend 3-4 years getting banged up 35 times a game, 12-15 games per year without any income, then that's their prerogative, but I think most young RBs nowadays are being wisely advised to find a school that will split their carries.
Lloyd enjoyed visits thru South Carolina & ClemsonFebruary 12, 2019 | Phil Kornblut Sports Updates USC & Clemson both are looking for that special running back in the 2020 class and one each is pursuing is Marshawn Lloyd (5-10 210) of Dematha Catholic in Hyattsville, MD. Lloyd visited Clemson the last weekend in January and USC the following weekend and came away with a positive feeling for each. At Clemson, Lloyd spent time with running backs coach Tony Elliott. He will lose Travis Etienne and Tavien Feaster after this season and may get only one more season out of Lyn-J Dixon. He made the playing opportunity point clear to Lloyd. “The coach told me he puts the best man on the field, the best man plays at all times, and I like to hear that,” Lloyd said. “I feel like Clemson was a great place for me. They call it the best and their technology there is amazing and really opened my eyes a lot.” And considering Clemson’s status as the reigning national champion, Lloyd said getting an offer from the Tigers means more. “Especially coming from a national championship, it’s very big to me,” he said. “An offer from a school like that that just came from a big time win, it’s big for me and it’s big for the school.” Lloyd also spent quality time in Columbia getting to know Will Muschamp’s program better and meeting up with new running backs coach Thomas Brown. “South Carolina was nice,” he said. “The coach is actually close friends with my running backs coach. I got to know him when he was at Miami. I know South Carolina is not too big on hype I don’t think. They’re telling me that basically the best man comes and they were telling me they would put me in the best position as possible.” Lloyd also has been to Georgia and Penn State, two more tradition laden programs. So, how much will Lloyd’s decision be influenced by the high level success of a program? “To me it doesn’t matter,” Lloyd said “I don’t care if they have the best tradition or they have the worst. I just want to go somewhere and make an impact wherever I go. Tradition doesn’t matter to me” He plans to take more visits with Texas, Texas A&M, Notre Dame and Ohio State on his agenda. And he’s planning a return visit to Clemson and USC, possibly for one of their spring games. Lloyd said he won’t make a decision until late in the process and he will not sign early.
