The 2017 South Carolina recruiting class has not seen any movement since Will Muschamp landed signatures from two junior college cornerbacks in mid-December.
In seven days, the Gamecocks will host a round of official visitors, a group that’s rumored to include 4-star defensive Robert Beal, who’s committed to Georgia. Defensive end Aaron Sterling, offensive tackle Jordan Rhodes and defensive end/outside linebacker Brad Johnson also will be among the guests on campus next weekend.
Help get prepared for signing day with SEC Country’s weekly look at where things stand with the 2017 South Carolina recruiting haul.
