Junior defensive end Devin Taylor has elected to return to the University of South Carolina for his senior season, he announced today.
"I still have some things I'd like to accomplish at Carolina before I go on to the next level," said Taylor.
Taylor, a 6-7, 260-pounder from Beaufort, S.C., started all 13 games for the Gamecocks in 2011, finishing the season with 42 tackles, including 8.5 tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks. He has made 32 career starts over the past three seasons, with 116 tackles including 27.0 tackles for loss and 15.5 sacks. He was a first-team All-SEC pick in 2010 after logging 13.0 tackles for loss including 7.5 sacks.
During Taylor's three seasons at Carolina, the Gamecocks have posted 27 wins, including a school-record 11-win campaign in 2011.
