There has been a change of plans in Columbia, S.C.
Four-star, junior college cornerback Jamarcus King will not be enrolling early at South Carolina, according to The Big Spurs’ John Whittle.
While King still intends to join the Gamecocks, it won’t be until June, after he takes care of an academic matter.
King, who played for Coffeyville junior college (Eight Mile, Ala.) this past season, chose South Carolina over the likes of Arkansas, Auburn, Florida and Tennessee, among others. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback was rated as the nation’s No. 1 junior college cornerback in the country, per 247Sports’ composite rankings.
King, along with quarterback Brandon McIlwain, wide receiver Bryan Edwards and running back C.J. Freeman, signed their letters of intent on Dec. 16, 2015 and were expected to be South Carolina’s mid-year enrollees.
