Defensive Backfield Takes a Hit:
Well, Wesley Green has decided to leave the program. This was a pretty surprising thing, at least for people not on the inside of the program, as Wesley seemed to be primed to make an impact on the defense this year. He came to USC in the same class as Chris Lammons, as a 4 star prospect, and will leave without ever playing a down. We at GABA wish Wesley all the luck in the world moving forward.
#Gamecocks announce that CB Wesley Green is no longer a member of the team. Steve Spurrier says it's a mutual decision.— Wes Mitchell (@WesMitchellGC) August 10, 2015
Green was listed as the backup to Chris Lammons at left CB on the preseason depth chart. Never played a down.— David Cloninger (@DCTheState) August 10, 2015
Green got into school with Lammons just before camp began last year. He chose to redshirt. Was a four-star prospect by Rivals.— David Cloninger (@DCTheState) August 10, 2015
Congrats to Rod Talley and Darius Paulk:
These two guys received scholarships today. It's always neat to see unheralded guys work hard and get rewarded with a scholarship. Congratulations to those two.
