The Gamecocks are in the mix for a number of recruits for the 2013 class. The ones listed in previous slides are just some of those standouts, and there are plenty more.
Here's a rundown of a few of those recruits:
- Bryce King, C
- Brian Walker, CB
- Michael Hill, DT
- Robert Nkemdiche, DT
- Reuben Foster, LB
- David Williams, RB
- Quinton Powell, LB
Foster is already committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide, but he has some interest in the Gamecocks. Foster and Nkemdiche are considered the top two prospects in the country, and Alabama is in the running for Nkemdiche as well. At this point, just being on the list is good enough for the Gamecocks.
Brian Walker is the type of corner South Carolina would love to have. He's a shut-down corner, but the Gamecocks have fallen a few spots on his favorites list. USC definitely has the defense for a player like Walker, so he's definitely a guy to watch for the Gamecocks.
Bryce King is a center prospect from the same high school as South Carolina commitment D.J. Park. King was a potential South Carolina commitment a few weekends ago, but withheld committing. It's certainly safe to say the Gamecocks are out front for King.
David Williams is a running back from up north in Pennslyvania. South Carolina has made in-roads thanks to quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus, so look for South Carolina to be a factor here. It'll be interesting to see where Williams falls on the running backs board with USC's early interest in Marquez Grayson.
Michael Hill is a big defensive tackle prospect from Pendleton, S.C.. His location alone leaves him a strong prospect for the Clemson Tigers, but the Gamecocks will work to battle Clemson until the end.
Quinton Powell is another linebacker prospect for the Gamecocks. His current size of 6'2" and 195 pounds could give him the ability to play in the secondary for the Gamecocks if he were to come to USC. He hails from Florida, so it'll be a tough sell for the Gamecocks to beat out the Florida schools, but they've got a good chance here.
