Two South Carolina players earn SEC All-Freshmen honors

South Carolina’s football team had to rely on a lot of freshmen during the 2018 season. On Thursday, two of them were recognized for their contribution by the SEC.

Offensive lineman Dylan Wonnum and defensive back Jaycee Horn were both placed on the conference’s All-Freshmen team, which is voted on by the league’s 14 coaches.

Wonnum, the brother of junior defensive end D.J. Wonnum, took over the starting right tackle job midway through the season.

Horn was a starter from the beginning of the season and is seventh on the team in tackles with 39 and first in pass breakups with eight.

South Carolina played 15 first-year freshmen this year.

“We really think we’ve hit on a lot of good players in this class,” head coach Will Muschamp said.

Wonnum and Horn aren’t the only players with Columbia connections to make the team. Defensive back Bryce Thompson, a one-time South Carolina recruit who signed with Tennessee, also made the team. Thompson played at Dutch Fork High School.
