South Carolina signs another low-key top 20 class

South Carolina had a low-key signing day, which is just fine

with coach Steve Spurrier as his team comes off back-to-back 11 win


Spurrier said Wednesday that teams that didn’t have good seasons

are often the ones that make a big deal out of the recruits they


South Carolina signed 21 players, one short of the maximum the

Gamecocks could sign after losing three scholarships because of

NCAA violations. For the second year in a row, there was no huge

catch, just a number of three-star and four-star recruits.

The class again finished in the top 20, but was behind a number

of other Southeastern Conference teams.

The Gamecocks signed five offensive linemen and four

linebackers, meeting some of their biggest needs.
