2014 South Carolina football preview: Will Sport

Will Sport
RS junior
6'5'' / 301 lbs
Milton, FL

Recruitment:
3 stars, 110th overall offensive tackle in the 2011 class

Other offers:
Florida International, Florida Atlantic, South Florida, Southern Miss, and UCF

College Career:
Sport redshirted in his true freshman season. In his RS freshman season, he played in 12 games, mostly on special teams. As a RS junior last season, he played in eight games, including starting against Tennessee at right guard in place of an injured Ronald Patrick.

2014 Outlook:
Although he's yet to receive much playing time, Sport has regularly been praisred for his efforts and abilities by the offensive coaching staff. He's also grown into his body over the course of his career and now fills out at an SEC-ready size for an interior lineman. While Na'Ty Rodgers and Mike Matulis are more likely to start at Sport's right guard slot, it's not completely out of the question that Sport will challenge for playing time, and even if he's unable to compete for a starting spot, he provides good depth.

Trivia:
Shared the award for most-improved offensive lineman with Brandon Shell after 2012 spring camp.

Beat writer's terrible double-meaning lede:
"When Steve Spurrier and Shawn Elliott needed help mid-season due to a rash of injuries on the offensive line, they turned to a guy who had always waited patiently for his turn, who had always been a good sport: Will Sport."
