VIP Room: Recruiting scoop aplenty

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.

There isn’t a lot of drama this year for South Carolina with underclassmen considering leaving early for the NFL Draft. That being said, one player, Ace Sanders, is giving a lot of thought to the decision at hand. We have the latest on Sanders as the January 15 declaration deadline nears. What is his current feeling and how likely is it to change?

A good chunk of the 2012 signing class was able to redshirt this year and spend time on the scout team and focus in the weight room. We have updates on several of the players who redshirted and their current weights after spending six month under strength and conditioning coach Joe Connolly.

As always, there’s plenty of news on the recruiting front. Four-star offensive tackle Na’Ty Rodgers was scheduled to make his announcement at the Under Armour All-American game last Saturday but decided to hold off. Is this good news for the Gamecocks? And when could a decision be forthcoming? Get all the latest scoop on Rodgers in this edition of the VIP Room.

This edition of the VIP Room may be the best in this feature’s history in terms of recruiting notes. In addition to Rodgers, find out the latest on the Gamecocks chances with four-star cornerback Shaq Wiggins, 2014 quarterback Drew Barker, and more than a dozen others.

A handful of coaches traveled to various points across the country to be seen, so to speak, at high school all-star games. Find out who went where and why.

On the basketball front, transfer guard Tyrone Johnson has made it to campus. Find out what the first couple of days in Columbia have been like, when he will start practice, and how he will help the team this season.

Head coach Frank Martin and the staff are still working hard on the 2013 recruiting class and there is plenty of news. Get the latest on the numbers for the class and two prospects considering the Gamecocks. We also have updates on three 2014 players, including five-star guard Ahmed Hill and four-star wing L.J. Peak.

Opening team practice for baseball is just a few weeks away. While the team - and the rest of the university - is on winter break, there’s a lot happening on the recruiting trail. Get the latest on five-star equivalent pitcher Cameron Varga and the son of a former MLBer who plans to visit Columbia this month.
