Football is back in Columbia as the Gamecocks will be reporting for duty this week as spring football is set to begin at South Carolina.
With the exception of a few players, South Carolina will be at full capacity this spring but Will Muschamp did note during his introductory spring press conference that the team anticipates seven players being out for the spring, with two having the possibility of returning in a limited capacity near the end of spring camp.
The seven players out for spring are senior linebacker T.J. Brunson, senior linebacker Daniel Fennell, sophomore tight end Caleb Jenerette, freshman defensive lineman Tyreek Johnson, senior running back Caleb Kinlaw, senior defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw and sophomore linebacker Rosendo Louis.
“There is a possibility Tyreek and Caleb will both be in non-contact by the end of spring, based on the progress they have made,” Muschamp noted during his presser.
Of those seven players listed above, Muschamp indicated all seven will be available for fall camp.
In addition to those seven players, the South Carolina coach noted freshman offensive lineman Maxwell Iyama would be out indefinitely “with a medical condition” for the time being.
All in all, not a bad count for the Gamecocks heading into a spring camp for the fourth time of the Muschamp era.
