4-star WR returns to South Carolina
With a 4-star quarterback already in the boat for 2018, South Carolina has increased its share of ammo when it comes to adding more prospects to the wide receiver haul.
The Gamecocks already have one on board in 3-star prospect Darius Rush, who was their first addition to the 2018 class. Four-star recruit Josh Vann, who’s believed to be among the top priorities left on the board, returned to Columbia on Saturday for a second visit with South Carolina’s coaches.
“There was a lot. I know the first time I went down there, I didn’t get the 1-on-1 attention like I did on Saturday, so I got to see more and I had wonderful people to [host] me,” Vann said.
Co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon played a big part in showing Vann that he’s a priority.
“They want me down there and I’ll be a good fit. That’s the main message every time,” Vann said. “And they’re going to try to get me down there as much as possible.”
Vann, who’s out of Tucker (Ga.) High School, visited Alabama just a couple of days before his trip to South Carolina.
The 247Sports composite ranks Vann as the No. 38 wide receiver in the Class of 2018.
PK offer out
On Sunday night, 2018 kicker Nicolas Sciba tweeted about his offer from South Carolina. A few days earlier, Sciba landed his first offer: Virginia Tech.
According to chrissailerkicking.com, the rising senior from Clover (S.C.) excels as a kicker and a punter:
“Smooth and accurate on field goals off the ground, hits a D1 ball. Kicks with great technique and consistency. Kickoffs are strong and near the top of his class, D1 ready. Punting is also a strength. He hits a a consistent ball with good distance and hang time.
“Nick is a great competitor that does his best under pressure. I really like his all-around upside. A fine young man with a great attitude and work ethic. The sky is the limit with continued hard work.”
Gamecocks make the cut
Jermaine McMillan, an unranked defensive back out of Booker T. Washington High School in Miami, Fla., announced a t0p 6 on Sunday night.
Baylor, Temple, Mississippi, Mississippi State and North Carolina State were also included on the list.
