South Carolina will be without its leading rusher in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl.

ZaQuandre White announced Tuesday night that he will begin preparing for the NFL Draft.

In his redshirt senior season, White led Gamecocks ball-carriers with 583 rushing yards at a clip of 6.63 yards per carry in the 2021 campaign. Due to COVID-19, the NCAA did not count the 2020 season against players’ 4-in-5 eligibility window, meaning White could have played a sixth season of college football.

After posting a 6-6 record in the first regular season of Shane Beamer’s tenure, South Carolina accepted a bid to play in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl. The Gamecocks will face North Carolina on Dec. 30. Kickoff from Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium is set for 11:30 a.m. ET, airing on ESPN.
