Welcome to the VIP Room, a comprehensive report brought to you by the staff of TheBigSpur.com designed to take you behind the scenes of South Carolina athletics.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! As you finish your turkey and spend time with your family, we wanted to share with you a special edition of the VIP Room with behind the scenes scoop from South Carolina athletics.
The Gamecocks are about 48 hours away from kickoff against rival Clemson. Read what our team of insiders have gathered this week in speaking with our sources. Also, get the latest on injured running back Shon Carson as he returns from his wrist injury.
Linebacker commitment Matt Rolin suffered a ligament injury in the final game of his high school career. We have an update on his surgery, his expected arrival time to Columbia, his mindset, and when he hopes to be ready to take the field again.
Also on the recruiting front, 2014 quarterback Drew Barker’s recruitment is starting to blow up. A host of new schools are starting to show interest in the four-star signal-caller, including the likes of Georgia and Notre Dame, which are two of the top teams in the country right now. South Carolina has been a mainstay and quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus has done a tremendous job building a relationship there. With all of the new interest, are the Gamecocks sliding?
On the basketball recruiting front, South Carolina could take a mid-year transfer this year. Villanova guard Tyrone Johnson has his release from the school and visited the Gamecocks over the weekend. What are the chances he comes to Columbia in the coming weeks for good? Who else is he considering and what else will go into his decision?
Class of 2014 wing L.J. Peak was high on the Gamecocks at one point in time. Then, his recruiting took a turn when he elected to go to Chicago, Ill. to continue his prep career. Are things changing in his recruitment again? If we’re writing about it, the answer is probably a yes.
We hit the road recently to check in on a pair of the top baseball players in future South Carolina recruiting classes. Get the latest on outfielder Clark Scolamiero and shortstop LT Tolbert in this edition of the VIP Room. Plus, we have some names to keep an eye out for in future classes, too.
Read all of that and much, much more in this special Thanksgiving edition of the VIP Room.
