Many Gamecock fans were surprised when South Carolina received a commitment from Mychal Belcher. According to the Spartanburg (S.C.) Dorman quarterback and defensive back's head coach David Gutshall, they picked up a fine athlete for either side of the ball.
"The thing is he is just an athlete. He is a very accurate passer, probably as accurate I've ever had," says Gutshall. "But, I think South Carolina likes him because he can play all kinds of positions, like wide receiver. I think he ran a 4.5 down there for them at camp, vertical jump was 33.5. I think they are are looking at him a lot as a corner, but I think they will give him a shot a quarterback.
"But he is just a total athlete. He will be our top runner in our program as well as our top passer. He is a (Woody) Dantzler type of quarterback."
