Deebo, Deebo, Deebo. Samuel named first-team All-SEC at three spots

South Carolina has three spots on the All-SEC preseason first team released by the conference Friday morning, and all three belong to senior wide receiver Deebo Samuel.

Samuel was named the league’s first-team return specialist and all-around player along with being named a first-team wide receiver.

Guard Zack Bailey is the only other Gamecock represented on the offense. He has a spot on the third-team offensive line.

Punter Joseph Charlton was named to the second team.

The team was voted on this week by media members covering the league at SEC Media Days, and those folks predicted the Gamecocks to finish second in the SEC East behind Georgia.
