The SEC released its coaches’ choices for preseason all-conference honors on Thursday and several South Carolina players were on them. Like the media’s preseason team, though, there was a scarcity on the first team.

Running back Mike Davis was the only USC player on the first team, which was one more Gamecock than the media’s team. Davis was on the media’s second team along with A.J. Cann and Corey Robinson, while Brison Williams made the third team.

Cann, Robinson and Pharoh Cooper (return specialist) each made the coaches’ second team while Williams made the third team. Williams was joined on the third team by Brandon Shell, J.T. Surratt and Cooper (as an all-purpose player).
