South Carolina lands the first half of it's recruiting class
Fullback has been a position of plenty for the Gamecocks in recent years. This season sees the departure of the last true fullback on the roster, Bobby Brooks, with converted tight end Antonio Schroeder second on the depth chart. Johnathan McDuffie is a fullback who has good size and skills for a high school senior, but will need some time to develop receiving skills before he can be considered well-rounded. He blocks well and has good vision and moves for a fullback. He wont be running away from defenders up the sideline any time soon. Probably is one of the weakest receivers of the class, so don't expect him to be used outside of lead blocking and pass protection.
Defensive tackleLast year the Gamecocks two defensive tackles to graduation and this season will see senior Robert Hall leave. James Lindsey and John Sullivan have committed to take on that responsibility. Both are strong tacklers and have good technique, but Lindsey is the more athletic of the two and is more of a balanced player. Both will fight for a chance to see playing time, but one will end up with a redshirt his freshman year. Wide receiverBrandon Reese is the #2 receiver in the scouting report and brings a good combination of size and speed to the table. Listed at 6-1, 200 lbs and clocked at 4.34 in the 40 yard dash he has all the physical tools to compete at the collegiate level and beyond. He has solid hands, but wont be breaking ankles in open field with mediocre agility and stiff hips. He is a key in-state recruit and looks to be a big target out wide in the future. 4 of 8 scholarships remaining
Clemson Adds 2 of 14
Curtis Sands- Clemson lands ESPN Top 150 wide out. He will join a young group of receivers next year with the departure of Jeremy Brady. He will have to improve on some skills before he will get alot of snaps.
David Pratt- Pratt will join a talented group of guards already on the team. He will get plenty of playing time sophomore year.
