Will Muschamp has hit the ground running ever since taking the post at South Carolina. An integral point of emphasis has been to improve the team from a depth and talent standpoint. 

As such, he’s garnered 10 commitments during his time in Columbia. The latest pledge came on Monday, courtesy of in-state linebacker T.J. Brunson. 

Formerly committed to Louisville, Brunson was the first recruit Muschamp visited once he was appointed as the head coach. 

On the year, the Richland Northeast High School product finished with 138 tackles. He’s an exceptionally active player with terrific speed. Brunson figures to compete right away at an outside linebacker spot. 

Garnering his pledge is yet another example of Muschamp’s recruiting prowess. With the staff he’s compiled, it won’t be a shock to see South Carolina continue on their improvement in this capacity (especially when compared to the former regime).
