National Signing Day 2017, the second at South Carolina under head coach Will Muschamp, ended with 24 players making up the new class of incoming Gamecocks football players.

Recap

—The players committed before NSD (save one) - Davonne Bowen, Zay Brown, Dennis Daley, Eric Douglas, Sherrod Greene, Tavyn Jackson, Will Register, Jordan Rhodes, Shi Smith, Damani Staley, Chad Terrell, Eldridge Thompson, Jay Urich - were all rock-solid and signed their NLIs today. That list grew by one as Javon Kinlaw, the ex-South Carolina commit (as of November) gave it some thought and signed with the Gamecocks to signify his recommitment. Tyreek Johnson will actually enroll next January and is set to sign in the future.

--As for Jamyest Williams, he made Gamecocks (and UGA) fans sweat it out before reaffirming his commitment to South Carolina during a signing ceremony at Grayson High School. Williams says he told Muschamp of his decision during his official visit this past weekend and informed Georgia coach Kirby Smart the day before NSD.

Summie Carlay, Kaleb Chambers, Jaylin Dickerson, OrTre Smith and MJ Webb are already on campus. They enrolled early and will be with the team for spring camp in a few months.

Keisean Nixon, thought to have already been signed, did so on NSD.
