Gamecocks In The Hunt For Another Bayou Product

The South Carolina Gamecocks are in the hunt for yet another Bayou Big Man ...

Troy Phan is a massive offensive lineman for Neville High School in Monroe, La. He stands at 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds and he has all of the tools to be a top-flight offensive lineman at the college level.

"He is very technically sound and real intimidating," said Neville receivers coach Travis Stanley. "He just goes about his job and gets it done. He is truly a Division-I offensive lineman and his upside and potential is tremendous. I've never been around a better offensive lineman than Troy."

Troy Phan is only 16-years-old but he will be a three-year starter for Neville. The future looks bright for him and he plans on taking advantage of his impressive physical attributes.

"He has been busting his tail in the weight room," Stanley told The Insiders. "The last year or so you could just see the light come on. He realized he has an opportunity to play big-time college football."

Phan is hearing from schools all over the country and he has already made an unofficial visit to LSU. He likes the Tigers along with another pair of SEC schools he plans on visiting over the summer in Auburn and South Carolina.

However, a pair of ACC schools could have the inside track to landing him if they come forward with scholarship offers.

"The last few years we've had good contacts at Clemson and they've been making quite a few contacts with him," Stanley said. "But Troy loves Florida State. He is a big Seminole fan."

Phan is an excellent student who projects as a full qualifier.
