No Announcement For Wingate

There's been a lot said about junior big man Major Wingate the past few days. There was even a report of a possible press conference, but according to family sources, that's not going to happen.

Wingate In No Rush

Florence (SC) Wilson junior PF/C Major Wingate is not going to announce for South Carolina this week, despite what has been speculated.

"We decided not to have the press conference because we aren't committing," Terry Wingate's mother told BCH. "We just decided not to do it. I guess people were under that assumption because we made a visit up there."

Wingate is an important underclass target for new Gamecocks head coach Dave Odom. Locking up Wingate in the junior class and center ReSean Dickey in the sophomore class are pretty high up on the Gamecocks priority list. However, Wingate will have to wait.

"We are in no hurry," Terry Wingate said. "We are going to postpone it for a long time, Major's only a junior."
