South Carolina comes in with solid National Signing Day haul
With Jadeveon Clowney and three other juniors going to the pros – as well as talisman quarterback Connor Shaw- South Carolina needed to shore up their class with an excellent National Signing Day…..and did.
A lot of the big signings were on the defensive side.
Steve Spurrier picked up DE Dante Sawyer, LB Bryson Allen-Williams and defensive tackle Dexter Wideman – who had committed earlier to Florida State – and reports have said that they expect DE Jhaustin Thomas to make an impact, too.
Four-star Defensive back Chris Lammons came aboard, and DE Blake McClain, who was meant to be going to Nebraska, decided that he preferred the Palmetto State as well.
On the offensive side, the Head Ball Coach lost his battle for QB Drew Barker to Kentucky, but Barker wouldn’t have started anyway….that’ll be Dylan Thompson, who’s already installed as the pocket passer of this Spurrier generation.
Still, they added WRs Shaquille Davidson and Terry Googan to the fold to make things easier for Thompson.
But when everyone’s not leaving Columbia for the NFL in their junior year, things are a little easier year-on-year for Spurrier.
South Carolina rocketed up the rankings at the end of play, moving up 8 to 15 by the end of the day with 247.
