South Carolina loses commitment from 2017 running back prospect
Will Muschamp’s 2017 recruiting class took another big hit on Saturday morning, when three-star RB Kyshaun Bryan announced he was de-committing from the university.
Bryan tweeted about his decision, thanking the Gamecocks for the opportunity, but said it wasn’t right for him:

Bryan, a Florida native, is a 5-foot-10, 190-pound back — a prototypical body type for a runner. The loss will hurt Muschamp’s class, unless the second-year Gamecocks coach can find a way to convince him to come back.
According to 247Sports, Bryan is the No. 34 running back in the class of 2017 and the No. 82 overall recruit from the state of Florida.
Bryan’s de-commitment is the latest in a string of important losses for the Gamecocks. As noted here, Muschamp has some work to do to keep his first full recruiting class from completely falling apart ahead of National Signing Day.
