Yes, the title is how I wanted it...
Well, back from my mini vacation, and see that Beamer has had another 2 commitments from the weekend. It looks like the 2 big recruiting weekends went well for the Gamecocks. I think that brings the total known commitments to 10 or 11. Plus, it sounds like SC might have their 2024 QB committing before their 2023 QB commits. Lonergan pushed his commitment back until July 12th, a week after his original date. Meanwhile Dante Reno is set to commit this weekend for the class of 2024. It appears he is a heavy lean to SC according to the "crystal ball" forecast. SC also made the top 3 for 5-star edge rusher Chandavion Bradley out of Missouri. Tennessee and Texas A&M are the other 2 in the top 3.
Baseball has another transfer for next year, a part time first basemen from Vanderbilt. He supposedly can hit pretty well, and it seems like SC needed a first basemen. I’m just glad that they found someone other than a former Clemson player to transfer in. In other news, Julian Bostic is in the transfer portal. That is a blow to SC for next year. It will be interesting to see if he is drafter coming off a season of injury.
The first payment for Lamont Parris is due to Chattanooga. I’m sure they will be happy to get the money. I just hope for their sake that the check doesn’t bounce. I’m sure the athletic department is good for it. At least, I hope they are. The SEC opponents are also out for next year’s basketball season. I’m happy to only play Kentucky, LSU, and Texas A&M only once next year. Arkansas, Florida, and Alabama also only have single games against SC next season. The rest of the schedule should be out later. It will be interesting to see if the schedule takes as long to come together as it has the last couple of years. Hopefully the early schedule is easy and will allow the team to gel a little bit before the SEC slate.
Well, that is all I have for this evening. I hope everyone is safe over the holiday weekend. Try not to burn anything down with your firework displays.
