It's Unanimous! Clowney Named FWAA All-American
Jadeveon Clowney became just the second unanimous first-team All-American in Gamecock football history on Friday when the FWAA released their list. South Carolina is on a pretty amazing run of having four consecutive first-team All-Americans. Barring injury, Clowney has a great chance of making it five in a row in 2013. Of the four consecutive All-Americans, three have been defensive ends. The other was Alshon Jeffery.
Kevin Crosby takes in South Carolina practice (subscription required)
Kevin Crosby, the fifth-ranked TE in the 2014 class, was one of a number of high profile recruits who were on campus Sunday taking in the Gamecocks' bowl practice. This is Crosby's fourth visit to campus since the beginning of September, which is a pretty strong indication his interest in the South Carolina program. Big time 2014 OL target Bentley Spain (Charlotte, NC) and 2016 QB Avery McCall (Dillon, SC) were among the other high priority recruits in attendance.
Sanders to make his decision this week

2013 Gamecock Commit Pharoh Cooper Stands Out During the Shrine Bowl
The Tar Heels may have lost to South Carolina by 4 points, but the North Carolina squad sure had the most exciting player on the field on Saturday. Gamecock commit Pharoh Cooper rushed for 104 yards, caught 3 passes for 39 yards, and amassed 110 yards in kick returns. Cooper is rated a 3 star ATH by both Rivals and 247 Sports, but there's been some scratching of heads by many who have seen Cooper in action as to why he isn't rated a little higher. The Havelock, NC standout has been recruited primarily as a defensive back, but he's just so dynamic with the ball in his hands, and a recent visit from the coaching staff left Pharoh with the impression that they'd like to give him a look on the offensive side of the ball. I think Coach Spurrier's staff has found a real steal here.
