USC’s Jeffery Should Be “Full Go” For Bowl

From a numbers perspective, 2011 had to be a disappointment for South Carolina wideout Alshon Jeffery.  Perhaps the most hyped SEC receiver coming into the year, Jeffery tallied 45 catches, 614 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns over the course of the season… good for sixth, seventh and fourth in the SEC in those categories, respectively.

Stephen Garcia’s struggles, his eventual dismissal, and the transition to Connor Shaw certainly didn’t make life easy on Jeffery.  Neither did the fact that opposing defenses focused on shutting him down over the top.

Still, he managed about 20 catches and 300 yards more than Carolina’s second-leading receiver, Ace Sanders.  So it’s good news for the Gamecocks that Jeffery’s surgically-repaired left hand “feels fine” and is “starting to get better.”

Asked if he’ll be ready to face Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl on January 2nd, the junior said, “I definitely feel good about that.”

Indeed, Steve Spurrier says his top offensive playmaker looks to be healing right on schedule.

“The docs say in another week or so, he should be full go.”

Jeffery broke a bone in his hand in Carolina’s season-ending 34-13 win over Clemson.
