National Signing Day is Wednesday, and South Carolina is position to add a few more prospects to its 2016 class.
The Gamecocks will have at least nine targets who are announcing on signing day, though it’s possible some decisions could be made public beforehand. Those prospects are denoted below with an “X.” Anyone listed without an X is already committed to USC.
Also, the times here are Eastern times and are when the schools have events scheduled. The times when a prospect signs and sends in his National Letter of Intent won’t always correlate with when he’s officially confirmed and announced by USC.
Never miss a local story.
