South Carolina Football: Brison Williams Working More at Corner; Pharoh Cooper Shining

Pharoh Cooper continues to impress during Carolina spring practice.

The Gamecocks practiced again Friday afternoon. There wasn't a lot of detailed media coverage for this practice, but here are a few takeaways from what coverage there was:

--Brison Williams continues to cross-train at corner. This is probably a precautionary measure. Williams is thoroughly familiar with his role at safety, so it's somewhat unnecessary for him to see much work there this spring. However, if the incoming freshman class doesn't produce a player capable of stepping in and immediately starting opposite Rico McWilliams, we're going to need Williams at corner. There's enough depth at safety for us to make this move.
--Dylan Thompson continued to perform well today. An anticipation throw on which he threw Pharoh Cooper got a lot of attention from Josh Kendall.
--Based on early returns, Cooper may be capable of replacing the production we lose from Bruce Ellington's departure. He came in with playmaker credentials, much like Bruce. As you remember, Bruce didn't translate that potential into on-field production until late 2011 and especially in 2012. You may be about to see a similar evolution on the part of Cooper, who ended 2013 well and will enter 2014 with a better understanding of his role in the offense.
--David Williams had an ugly dropped pass that was picked by Marquis Roberts on the tip. Not a good sign from a young player we're all watching right now. Williams particularly need to exhibit his reliability receiving and blocking.

The Gamecocks will practice again tomorrow, and we'll have more coverage then.
