A strong postgame comment from Will Muschamp turned into one South Carolina recruit’s recruiting pitch on social media Monday.
The first-year South Carolina had a lot to say about handling adversity after the Gamecocks lost 24-13 to Texas A&M on Saturday. Muschamp’s words motivated offensive tackle commit Summie Carlay to declare it is why recruits should want to play for South Carolina.
RECRUITS… THIS is why you should play at USC! This staff is on its way to greatness! Trust the process! https://t.co/NgZyh7z9od

On Saturday night, Muschamp discussed how his team has to continue to handle the ups and downs of the 2016 season.
“Life’s not fair,” he said. “Sometimes, you can work really, really hard and you’re not guaranteed anything. You can’t get frustrated. You can’t let the negativity seep in your body and brain. You’ve gotta block it out and understand that we’ve gotta continue to work. You’ve gotta continue to work and to continue to buy in and to continue to believe in the things that they are doing as players. … Right now, it’s going to be negative. It’s easy to kick the guy on the curb. That’s part of it. Right now, we’ve gotta continue to have the belief in what we are doing and we do. I believe in this group.”
The 6-foot-5, 265-pound Carlay, a Laurens, S.C., native, committed to South Carolina in March.
