Spring game recruits
Muschamp hosted an impressive list of recruits over the last few weeks. Saturday will be no different as the Gamecocks close out spring practice with the annual Garnet & Black Spring Game.
SEC Country has confirmed the following prospects as guests for the spring game. All are prospects in the 2018 cycle with an offer from South Carolina. Several of them are likely to suit up for future spring games at Williams-Brice Stadium.
|Xavier Thomas||5-star DE||Florence, S.C.||Clemson|
|Dakereon Joyner||4-star DT-QB||North Charleston, S.C.||N.C. State|
|Dax Hollifield||4-star ILB||Shelby, N.C.||UNC, Virginia Tech|
|Bryce Thompson||3-star ATH||Columbia, S.C.||Virginia Tech|
|Alim McNeill||4-star DT||Raleigh, N.C.||Virginia Tech|
|Jerome Carvin||3-star OT||Cordova, Tenn.||Tennessee, Louisville|
|Sam Pinckney||3-star WR||Greenwood, S.C.||FSU, LSU|
|Channing Tindall||3-star LB||Columbia, S.C.||Auburn, Georgia|
|Jabari Ellis||JUCO DT||Santee, S.C.||East Carolina|
Four-star offensive tackle Warren McClendon (Brunswick, Ga.) will be among the highlighted 2019 guests. Another will be Greenwood defensive tackle Kobe Alexander, who’s yet to land any offers.
Former Blythewood (S.C.) High School cornerback Khris Pam is also planning to attend. The former 3-star recruit from the 2016 cycle originally signed with Presbyterian College, but he opted to take the junior college route, with an eye on a shot at the Power 5 level. Like Ellis, he’s a rising sophomore at Georgia Military Academy.
Several of the 2017 signees are confirmed as visitors: Safety Zay Brown (Athens, Ga.), linebacker Davonne Bowen (Piedmont, S.C.), offensive tackle Dennis Daley, linebacker Eldridge Thompson (Memphis, Tenn.) and quarterback Jay Urich (Piedmont, S.C.).
