COLUMBIA, S.C. – At some point within the next couple of weeks, the South Carolina coaches will meet with freshman wide receiver Randrecous Davis and discuss the future.
Davis, who’s been sidelined with a hamstring injury since September, hasn’t played since making two catches against East Carolina. The Atlanta native suffered the injury the following week during practice, which leaves his season reception total at three.
With an eye on applying for a medical redshirt, South Carolina coach Will Muschamp is examining the possibility of keeping Davis out for the remainder of the season.
“We had that discussion Sunday and we’re still working through that,” Muschamp said. “He’s going to be out this week.”
A couple of variables could determine whether or not Davis plays during the final quarter of the season.
“Depending on these last three ballgames and what our health is at that position, that’s a conversation that we’ll have with Randrecous, which we have not had yet,” Muschamp said. “That will be a discussion we will have.”
Wide receivers’ hamstrings have been an issue this season for the Gamecocks. Sophomore Deebo Samuel sat out three games and freshman Bryan Edwards missed one.
One player who won’t apply for a medical redshirt is sophomore guard Donell Stanley. Muschamp confirmed on Tuesday that Stanley will return to action this season, even though he hasn’t played since suffering a high-ankle sprain at Vanderbilt.
Stanley was cleared to play last week by team doctors, though he did not see the field in the Tennessee game.
“I feel like he’ll be more ready to go this week,” Muschamp said. “He was cleared for last week, but he hard time getting up on his toes.”
