Granite Falls, NC



College Career

Freshman walk-on in 2012 who was added to the roster in the fall. In 2013 he played against Coastal Carolina, where he had 3 carries for 12 yards. In 2014 he made an appearance in both the Furman and Tennessee games.

2015 Outlook

Potter adds depth at running back, and barring a rash of injuries akin to last year's offensive line (please no!), he won't see significant playing time. Let's all hope for the best scenario possible here--that the Gamecocks have plenty of strong leads in the second half to facilitate opportunities for Potter to get some carries this year. Win-win!


Devin Potter shares the surname of a certain famous book protagonist who played out his athletic eligibility in a different sport at Hogwarts. Name another South Carolina player on this year's roster who shares a last name with a character from the Harry Potter books.
