Pair of four-star CBs qualify, will play for Gamecocks

Thumbs Up

When we last checked on the qualifying efforts of South Carolina’s Class of 2014, there was concern that as many as eight of the 21 signees would fail to qualify academically.

A couple of weeks later, it’s not quite as bad as originally feared.

Head coach Steve Spurrier confirmed at a charity event Thursday night that a pair of touted cornerbacks, Chris Lammons and Wesley Green, have qualified and will be a part of the team in 2014. According to Saturday Down South, “[b]oth players’ standardized test scores were flagged prior to summer enrollment, which forced an unexpected cram session prior to the test’s re-take on July 11.”

Both Lammons and Harris were four-star prospects, with the former rated as the No. 14 corner in the country and the latter No. 17.  One or both are expected to contribute immediately to the Gamecocks’

The positive development regarding the two defensive backs means USC’s 2014 recruiting class will consist of 15 players instead of the original 21. The six not making the cut academically? Cornerback Darin Smalls, fullback Joe Blue, defensive tackle Dexter Wideman and defensive ends Dante Sawyer, Kalan Ritchie and Jhaustin Thomas.

Wideman is the highest ranked of that group, rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com.

    Carolina only had 16 scholarships to give this year, so some crafty planing there by the HBC.

    In the Borat movie, the frat boys that made giant jackasses of themselves in the RV were from the University of South Carolina. They later sued him.
