Flush from a four-game SEC winning streak and with a colossal showdown against Florida looming, Gamecock recruiters have turned the heat up a notch on some of their blue-chip prospects, with measurable results. Some interesting new ...
This week, we're going to look at the defensive backfield and see who we're
looking at and what progress we're making there. Let's start at safety.
is currently atop our list of offered players, but
DonKay Degraffenried has just sent in more film, and
may receive an offer soon.
both have us
high on their lists; I would expect to see a few new big names appear between
now and the holidays.
, who will attend his third USC
game this weekend vs. the Gators, is also listed on some services as a safety,
although he's a corner on our board (see below).
Check here to see who our stock is rising (or falling) with.
WR Lattarius Thomas
WR Jared Mitchell
WR Terrell Reese
CB/S Darius Gaither
We'll adjust this list of uncommitted prospects periodically as the recruiting
season continues; some big changes from the last column.
DT/DE Adam Patterson
: Our SEC winning streak and huge win against UT
have definitely made an impact with him. Hopefully, he's sitting in homeroom
right between Rodney Paulk
and Mark Barnes
OL Clifton Geathers
: An enigma shrouded in a cloak of uncertainty,
surrounded by an impenetrable fog of the unknown. In other words, nobody
really knows where they stand with Clifton -- but we can all still hope.
OL Daron Rose
: A recent upgrade by one service has him ranked above
Geathers. The guy is a certified road grader, and smart as a whip; would be
able to grasp SOS's complicated blocking schemes quickly.
4. The St. Augustine Boys:
WR Quintin Hancock
RB Brandon James
would make one heck of a trifecta.
WR/ATH Jamar Hornsby
: Wow, what a difference maker this guy could
be. We've only got an outside shot at best, but he would be on any team's top
5, so he's on ours too. Hopefully we snag his fifth visit and beat UF; if we
do, SOS could work some magic.
