Last Thursday, Alshon Jeffery confirmed he would be leaving South Carolina early for the money-green pastures of the NFL.
Four days later, and after it had already been confirmed by the player’s relatives, one of the wide receiver’s teammates on the other side of the ball confirmed the same level of football is in his future.
The Gamecocks announced via a press release Monday afternoon that cornerback Stephon Gilmore has decided to make himself available for the NFL draft in a couple of months. Defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward confirmed the decision, the release stated.
Gilmore started all 40 games in which he played during his three years with the Gamecocks, and his four interceptions this season led the team. He finished his three-year career with eight interceptions, four forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
