2018 Joe Morrison Co-Offensive Player of the Spring

2016 Co-Offensive Scout Team Award

16-17 First-Year SEC Honor Roll


Talented fourth-year junior offensive lineman who has been a starter at the guard position, but is athletic enough to get a long look at tackle this spring... has played in 23 games making 17 starts.

2018: Redshirt sophomore offensive lineman who started at right guard in every game... named one of three Strength & Conditioning Award winners by the coaches following the season... had an impressive spring practice session in which he shared the Joe Morrison Offensive Player of the Spring Award with K.C. Crosby.


2017: Played in 10 games making four starts... did not play in the season's first three games... made his collegiate debut against Louisiana Tech, playing the majority of the game at left guard after Cory Helms left with an injury in the first quarter... served as starting left guard against Texas A&M, Arkansas and Tennessee while Helms was sidelined... also saw extensive action in the Vanderbilt win after Helms suffered another injury... started in the Outback Bowl win after Donell Stanley was injured and unable to play.


2016: Redshirted as a true freshman offensive lineman... shared the Offensive Scout team Award with Ty'Son Williams as selected by the coaching staff following the season... named to the 2016-17 First-Year SEC Honor Roll.


Before Sadarius Hutcherson was even a starter for the South Carolina football team, his teammates raved about his strength and physical skills. One went so far as to say sure the first-year lineman was unpolished, but one-on-one, he’d just run you over. He’s since grown into a starter, and Thursday he got recognized for the work he’s put in to augment that natural strength. Hutcherson checked in at No. 20 on Bruce Feldman’s “Freaks List.” The feature has bounced from ESPN to FoxSports to Sports Illustrated and now to The Athletic, and it celebrates the absurd lifter, leapers and speedsters in the sport of college football. And now Hutcherson made the cut.


“The fourth-year junior has emerged as a quality lineman and one of the strongest guys in the SEC,” Feldman wrote. “The 320-pounder benches more than 500 pounds, squats 650 and has a very impressive vertical jump of 31.5 inches.”


He was not a particularly highly-rated recruit, but had offers from Arizona State, Memphis and Louisville. Late in high school, be bulked up considerably from 230 pounds. He started out as a tackle at USC, moved inside to guard and emerged as an effective injury sub in 2017 and a starter last fall. The staff moved him to left tackle this offseason, and current indications are that he’ll start there.
