South Carolina Gamecocks
- SEC TEAM RANK: No. 10
- NATIONAL TEAM RANK: No. 23
- LAST YEAR’S FINISH: No. 8 in SEC; No. 20 in nation.
- NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: LB Bryson Allen-Williams (No. 102)
- FINAL TARGETS: DB Wesley Green (No. 160); DT Dexter Wideman (No. 166); DB Chris Lammons (No. 205).
- WHAT SURPRISES LIE AHEAD?: Surprise might not be the best word here, because the three Top 250 targets listed above are expected to come aboard with the Gamecocks tomorrow. That will be one of the best signing day trios in the country to come to one school. Green and Lammons will automatically form a nice DB package for the recruiting version of Christmas Day, and any time South Carolina can steal away a prospect from the national champions–FSU’s Wideman–that’s a great day. There may be another pickup or two tomorrow, also, so expect South Carolina’s team ranking to rise into at least the top 15 when all is said and done.
- SDS WEDNESDAY ‘DRAMA’ RATING (1 TO 5): We’ll go with a 4. It won’t be as crazy as say, LSU or Florida, but there will be some fireworks.
