Last week, South Carolina inked a pair of players for its 2019 recruiting class: Wildens Leveque and in-state guard Trae Hannibal. That left Frank Martin with one scholarship to use - presumably for a small forward corps which, outside of Keyshawn Bryant, was left thin with Brian Bowen’s decision to turn pro and Ibrahim Doumbia’s transfer to UCF this spring.
On Wednesday, the program received some needed help at the position. Woodstock Academy (Conn.) standout Trey Anderson, already on an official visit, decided to shut down his recruitment on the spot and sign for the Gamecocks. The 6’7”, 185-pounder spurned offers from FIU and Georgia Tech to play in Columbia.
Anderson graduated from Mater Dei Catholic last year, where he averaged 16.4 points and 6.6 rebounds a game as a senior. He then headed Northeast for a prep year at Woodstock, where his play led him to receive interest from schools like Florida State, Ole Miss and Wisconsin.
