Shane Beamer indicates 3 South Carolina seniors with remaining eligibility moving on
Since the 2020 season and the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver, “senior” seasons have gotten a bit confusing in college football. With redshirts, there are plenty of sixth-year seniors in college football. Some programs have players walk on “Senior Day” once they have graduated, even if they have multiple seasons of eligibility available.
On Saturday, Shane Beamer indicated that a trio of South Carolina seniors with remaining eligibility will not be joining the Gamecocks for the 2023 season.
Ben Portnoy of The State shares that Beamer is not anticipating Chad Terrell, Hank Manos or Wyatt Campbell to continue their South Carolina careers. All 3 walked on the Gamecocks’ Senior Day but have remaining college eligibility, per Portnoy. Beamer wished the trio well but said they are not currently with the team.
“They’re not involved in our workouts right now,” Beamer said. “But great young men and want to certainly wish them well and (thank them) for everything they did for Gamecock football, as well.”
Terrell dealt with 3 ACL injuries, missing much of 2018 and the complete 2020 and ’22 seasons. The tight end managed to appear in 27 games, recording 7 career catches for 76 yards.
Manos, an offensive lineman, was with the Gamecocks for 5 seasons, using a redshirt his first year on campus (2018). He played in 28 games (2 starts), including all 13 contests in 2022.
Campbell, a fellow offensive lineman, also had a sixth-year available with the COVID-19 waiver. He played in 12 games over the last 4 seasons, making his first career start in 2022.
