    SC is taking a look at former North Carolina cornerback Mike Hughes who was a standout at Garden City JC, KS this past season.  Yes sir they have been recruiting me pretty hard, Hughes confirmed over the weekend.  He did not say if he will take an official visit to USC.  He has taken officials to East Carolina and TCU.

    Hughes is a native of New Bern, NC.  He played in 12 games as a true freshman at UNC in 2015.  He was suspended for one game after his arrest for a count of misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury after an incident at a UNC fraternity house in October of 2015.

    6-foot-2, 172-pound Darius Rush from C.E. Murray High School in Greeleyville, S.C. is the No. 19-rated prospect in the state for the 2018.

    Brian Smith, Rushs former high school coach: Hes a straight-A student, National Honor Society kid. He is what he is. Hes a great human being.

    Its pretty crazy. Hes got size-17 feet. Im expecting him to grow a couple of more inches taller and end up 6-4 or 6-5. If he does that, hell probably play on the offensive side of the ball.

    Hank Manos, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound state champion wrestler from Chapin (S.C.) High reciprocated the Gamecocks interest and announced his commitment.

    Ive kind of been thinking over the last couple of days, almost going on a week now. It almost started after I took that last trip up to USC. Id realized that my three criteria for picking a school: education, proximity to home and coaching I kind of realized that USC was the best option for me in all three of those aspects.

    I kind of let it sit for a day, to make sure I was 100 percent on that, then this morning, I went and talked with (Chapin) coach (Justin) Gentry, then I called coach (Will) Muschamp and coach Wolf after school today.

    Roderick is ranked as the No. 15 overall prospect in the state.

    3-star athlete Bryce Thompson, one of the top overall prospects from the state of South Carolina, announced on Twitter that he will de-commit from Virginia Tech.

    North Carolina State, South Carolina and Washington State are among his other Power 5 offers.

    Gamecocks coaches got another in-person look at Thompson last Wednesday when he attended the second session of the Will Muschamp Football Camp. He worked primarily at defensive back...

    Thompson told SEC Country hes being recruited by South Carolina to play as a nickel back and/or safety.

    I want to make sure that my whole family [will] be at every home game, too. I keep that in mind, he said...

    Four-star quarterback Dakereon Joyner became the 10th commitment in the 2018 South Carolina recruiting class after making his announcement Sunday afternoon at Fort Dorchester High...

    Silent Commit
    The actual commitment, Joyner said, was made a couple of months ago, but he wanted to stick to his plan to announce it on Fathers Day, to honor his late father, Damond Alton Joyner.

    Now that the words out, Joyner plans to get to work on the recruiting trail and help beef up the Gamecocks 2018 class.

    Up first on the agenda is 5-star defensive end Xavier Thomas, whos committed to Clemson.

    QB, not athlete
    [Joyner] doesnt do things normally, Coach LaPrad said. His work-ethic, off-the-field, discipline, character, his ability, his speed, his arm-strength keeps getting better, better and better its just freakish.

    He just keeps getting better. Every day he gets better. Its scary.

    Hard work, LaPrad added, is not a problem for him.

    If he has to change this, change that, he can do it, LaPrad said. A lot of people [say] hes an athlete, not a quarterback. Let me tell you something, theres no doubt hes a quarterback and he is a [darn] good athlete, but he is going to make [South Carolina] very, very happy and hes going to keep somebody their job.
    QB, not athlete

    As LaPrad noted, there are some folks who arent sold on Joyner as a quarterback. That, Joyner said, serves as motivation to the full extent, 100 percent.

  • Gamecocks their first commitment for 2019 

    LB Ahdarrious Gee (6-1 190) of Cordele, GA committed to the Gamecocks at Spurs Up Cookout

    Gee said he also strongly considered Mississippi State and Vanderbilt but saw USC as his best opportunity.

    I chose the Gamecocks because I feel home here in South Carolina, Gee said.  I like the education level and the type of defense they run.  They like the way I play the linebacker position and get to the ball.

    Gee had 208 tackles and 2 sacks as a sophomore.  He also said part of the attraction the Gamecocks offered him is the chance to play for a defensive minded head coach in Will Muschamp and for defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson.

    Theyre two great coaches.  I cant wait to play for them, Gee said.
