ESPN finalized its Top 300 recruits for the 2018 football class.
South Carolina fans will see a few familiar names.
The Gamecocks had six on the list, every one of them already signed. There’s also one other top-300 player strongly considering USC.
The group is as follows:
No. 145 Jaycee Horn, CB
No. 183 Dakereon Joyner, QB
No. 233 Josh Vann, WR
No. 238 Jonathan Gipson, DB
No. 239 Rosendo Louis, LB
No. 275 Kingsley Enagbare, DE
Neither Gibson nor Louis made the Rivals 250.
USC is also after offensive lineman Dylan Wonnum, brother of Gamecocks star D.J. and the No. 117 on the list. Wonnum is scheduled to visit USC this weekend.
One notable absence is South Carolina target Rick Sandidge. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound tackle from Concord N.C. has an 80 rating from ESPN, and all but four players on the list were 81 or better. That’s far lower than Rivals, which has him No. 45, and 247, which has him at 113th nationally.
