Caleb Kinlaw is getting one final season to show what he can do in a Gamecock uniform.
The redshirt senior recently shared the news that the NCAA has granted him a sixth season of eligibility. Had the NCAA not done so, Kinlaw’s time at South Carolina would have officially been over.
Kinlaw officially announced the news on Twitter with the following note, “Forever grateful for the opportunity to play one more year. Let it be my best,” the Gamecock running back tweeted.
A transfer from Wisconsin, the South Carolina native arrived in Columbia in 2017 and played in 12 games as a junior. His 2018 season was lost due to injury and would have counted as his final season if the NCAA failed to step in.
A product of Goose Greek High School, Kinlaw rushed for 4,186 yards in high school and had three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.
