Focus On In-State Recruits Pays Off For Cocks

Steve Spurrier has finally accomplished one of the most important challenges he faced when he took over the South Carolina program in late-2004 — he’s luring the state’s top talent to Columbia.

Since joining the SEC, Carolina has seen Palmetto State prospects head in droves to Clemson (in-state, too, of course), Georgia and Tennessee.  But Spurrier has helped to build up a wall around the state’s Western border.  The Dawgs and Vols don’t go into Carolina like they used to… and Clemson is no longer landing the state’s A-1 top prospects.

Sorry Tiger fans, but you know you’d have loved to have gotten Marcus Lattimore last year and Jadeveon Clowney his past signing day.

Carolina AD Eric Hyman told Travis Haney of The Charleston Post & Courier that “five or six years ago you could not have imagined South Carolina signing the top-ranked player in the country.”  No, you couldn’t have.  Five or six years ago, Clowney would have gone to Clemson, if he’d stayed in state at all.

Departing recruiting coordinator Shane Beamer said, “We’ve been trying to tell guys they don’t have to leave the state to win championships.”  At long last, that message is being heard.

    Between me and my husband we have owned much more MP3 gamers through the years than I can count, such as Sansas, iRivers, iPods (traditional & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few several years I’ve settled down to one line of players.
