Ali Groves could have gone to Florida. Or to Vanderbilt. Or to Missouri. But instead, the Stephenson High defensive back chose Steve Spurrier and the University of South Carolina for his football career.

The biggest issue for him may be a neck fracture, which kept him out for most of the 2011 season. Having said that, he was cleared to play in December – rather like a certain SEC alum we all know – so should be fine come September.

Palmetto Sports said that linebacker Brandon Golson of Georgia Military Junior College may also come to Columbia as soon as this week.

It must be noted that Groves wasn’t offered by his two homestate universities – UGA or Georgia Tech – perhaps the neck injury really is a worry.

Stats-wise, he’s run a 4.41 40, and jumped a 32 inch vertical (he’s already 5 ft 10), according to Rivals.
