South Carolina left tackle Corey Robinson is planning to return to South Carolina for his final season of eligibility, according to reliable sources.

Robinson said last week upon the Gamecocks' return from the Capital One Bowl that he was still weighing his options, but this week Robinson has told South Carolina coaches and friends that he's staying for his senior season.

A rising fifth-year senior, Robinson has been in school for four years and is one of six players to start all 13 games this season for the Gamecocks.

Robinson would have until January 15, the final day that underclassmen can declare, to change his mind.

The 6-foot-8, 341-pound Robinson has started 22 games at South Carolina, which includes every game in 2013 and nine of the last 10 during the 2012 season. He bounced back and forth between the offensive line and defensive line early in his career.

Offensive linemen Brandon Shell and A.J. Cann have already publicly stated their intentions to return to the program. Shell is a rising redshirt junior and Cann a rising fifth-year senior.
