South Carolina coaches and fans loved Connor Shaw, and for good reason. As head ball coach Steve Spurrier put it, Shaw was the most productive quarterback in South Carolina history.
Tonight at 6:30 p.m., the Gamecocks may land another gem with the same kinds of tools as Shaw. Lorenzo Nunez–a four-star Georgia QB product with excellent mobility and a good frame to boot (6-3/190)–will choose between the Gamecocks, Ohio State and N.C. State. It appears this is a near lock for South Carolina.
The Gamecocks took a quarterback last year, unheralded Michael Scarneccia out of Florida, but it seemed to be more a move for depth. There’s no question Nunez is a guy who will contend for the starting job quickly.
Nunez is considered the No. 199 player in the nation by the 247Sports.com composite ranking. He is rated the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the country, too.
