With the 2014 recruiting season fully underway, here is a look back at South Carolina's all-time highest-rated recruit at each position.
Under the leadership of head coach Steve Spurrier, the Gamecocks have gained steam in recruiting battles. As Spurrier enters his ninth season with the Gamecocks, he has landed many top recruits who have had major impacts on the field and contributed to South Carolina's recent success.
South Carolina has been able to haul in elite recruits from in-state, but now as a consistently high-ranked team, Spurrier is landing out-of-state prospects.
While the Gamecocks' are still a rising team who did not have a great deal of success in the past, there are still some impressive recruits from the past.
The criteria for being regarded as a top recruit of all-time at each position comes down to mainly recruiting hype and performance while at South Carolina.
Most players are from the Spurrier era, due to the team's recent success and the lack of recruiting data prior to 2002.
South Carolina has multiple recruits at each position who could be considered as top recruits, especially on the defensive and offensive lines.
With that being said, here is a list of the all-time best recruit at each position for the South Carolina Gamecocks.
