Top 5 O-line prospects from the state of South Carolina since 2008


It’s fun to look back and see which prognostications were correct and which were way off. When it comes to the state of South Carolina, the recruiting rankings haven’t been far off when rating offensive linemen the last few years.

Since 2008, the No. 1 ranked offensive lineman coming out of the state of South Carolina is Brandon Shell, who has had a remarkable career at South Carolina and was a freshman All-American. Right behind Shell in the ranking is A.J. Cann, who is going into his senior year and has been an anchor on the line for 3 seasons. Certainly a nice recruiting one-two punch for the Gamecocks a few years ago.
