When Will Muschamp was hired as South Carolina’s football coach, he announced he wanted almost every coach on his staff to be a big factor in recruiting.
The 2018 cycle showed he had a few, at least by the measures of the recruiting services.
Wolford was in his first year with the Gamecocks and was the recruiter of record on two or three four-stars depending on which service one used.
“The Gamecocks just snuck into the top 20 with a 2018 class that boasts nine four-stars among 22 total recruits,” Rivals writer Josh Helmholdt wrote. “Three of those four-stars are on the offensive line and credited to position coach Eric Wolford, who is in his first year back with the Gamecocks after stints as a head coach at Youngstown State and an assistant with the San Francisco 49ers.
Gamecocks running backs coach Bobby Bentley came in 50th in the 247 list.
