Head ball coach Steve Spurrier and South Carolina gradually produced a powerful recruiting class that addresses most of the team's needs. Though there is still work to be done.
As National Signing Day approaches, college football teams are jockeying for position to land the last batch of recruits. With some elite talents still on the board, South Carolina can make a big splash on the final day of recruiting season.
Some of the elite talents like to hold out until the official deadline. After all, they are weighing one of the biggest decisions of their lives.
South Carolina's class is very strong, but with three battles remaining, the Gamecocks can really take a stronghold as one of the nation's better classes by landing these players, which in turn prevents them from landing at any other SEC schools with strong classes.
The Gamecocks still need to address the cornerback position, so the battles take place in that department.
Dexter Wideman does not make the list because I consider him a lock to be wearing garnet and black in the fall. And Damian Prince pulled South Carolina out of the running just a few days ago.
Here are the two biggest National Signing Day recruiting battles for the South Carolina Gamecocks.
