With spring practice in the books, South Carolina coach Will Muschamp released a preseason depth chart, although a few positions have yet to pencil in a starter, including quarterback.
At quarterback, it will be either rising senior Perry Orth or freshman Brandon McIlwain leading the way for the Gamecocks, narrowing the quarterback competition to just two. In March, Muschamp recently told the Columbia Rotary Club that the pair of passers were the clear leaders at the position.
“Brandon and Perry had distanced themselves coming out of Saturday because of Perry’s command and Brandon’s ability,” Muschamp said, via Josh Kendall of The State.
Tight end, weakside linebacker and middle linebacker also don’t have a defined starter. Senior Skai Moore is not listed on the depth chart after missing spring with a neck injury. The second team All-SEC linebacker could be used in a variety of ways in 2016, as Muschamp said it’s possible Moore could see time at safety as a senior.
