Will Muschamp must have been nice this season, because Santa is bringing him one of the top young playmakers in the Big South to his program at South Carolina next year.

Jaylan Foster, fresh off a Big South Freshman of the Year campaign with Gardner-Webb, announced on Sunday, via Twitter, he is taking his game to the Gamecocks t fulfill a dream he has had since a young age to play for a power conference program.

Foster recorded 45 tackles and five interceptions as a freshman at Gardner-Webb in 2016. Foster showed an ability to create a big play off turnovers, with a FCS-leading 185 yards on interception returns. Foster will reportedly sit out the 2017 season as redshirt and return got action in the 2018 season. He will have three years of eligibility to use at South Carolina.
