    Team Breakdown

    South Carolina Team Breakdown​


    The South Carolina Gamecocks are fresh off their first ever BCS Bowl in their entire history. The Gamecocks return all their skill position players on offense and most of their defensive line. The veterans on this team will look to lead the Gamecocks to possibly their first ever SEC Championship. South Carolina will also be looking for their third straight double-digit win season to extend the record they set last year with their second consecutive double-digit win season. The Gamecocks are also looking to have a huge year in recruiting as they have been gaining notoriety and respect around the nation. If the Gamecocks can haul in a big recruiting class they should be well on their way to becoming a elite program.

    Offense
    The offense is led by Quarterback Andrew Clifford who is back for his second year as a starter and will be looking to improve on his year last year. The coaching staff was a little disappointed with the progress he made in the offseason but they still expect big things from the Junior. The stars of the offense however are Marcus Lattimore and Alshon Jeffery. Those two are the big playmakers and can go up against anybody in the country. There is no question that Lattimore and Jeffery will have huge years but it will be on the role players to take this team to the next level. A lot of the success of this offense will depend on the play of the offensive line. The line is a young group that will have to step up in a big way.

    Defense
    The Gamecocks defense should be an interesting group to watch all season. The are very experienced on the defensive line and have some leadership in the linebacking corp, but there is also some big question marks. The defense will be starting three true freshman and has to replace all the starters in the secondary. If the freshman can all be ready to play then the defense should be successful, but if they aren't then it could be yet another long season for the Gamecocks defense. There has also been a lot of rumor and distraction from the sources that are reporting that there could be a change in defensive coordinators at the end of the season if the defense struggles. Much of the success of the team will be dependent on how the defense does, if the defense performs well then the Gamecocks will have a chance to be great, but if they struggle then the Gamecocks could be looking at second in the SEC East for the second straight year.

    ***Recruiting Updated Through Week 12***

    The South Carolina Gamecocks have quietly put together a top 20 recruiting class. The USC coaching staff is very pleased with the recruits they have pulled in so far and they expect to sign a few more before this season's recruiting finishes up. The prize recruit of the class looks to be ATH Michael Davis. Davis will look to help out an already youthful Gamecocks secondary in 2013 and into the future.
