South Carolina Recruiting the Trenches

The old adage is you build a good football team from the inside out, which seems to be the approach that Shane Beamer takes with his South Carolina football team.

The Gamecocks have recently added commitments from Markee Anderson, Tree Babalade, Trovon Baugh, Isaiah Jatta, and Jatavious Shivers. The smallest of the five, Shivers weighs a “mere” 290 pounds. The average weight of these 5 recruits is 302 pounds, and that is without a full off-season of an SEC nutrition and weight lifting regiment.

A glaring need for years has been the offensive line and their pass-blocking ability. Hopefully, with the addition of these new prospects, the line will be formidable for years to come.
