Frank Martin, Gamecocks hosting transfer guard from Charlotte

On the day USC basketball coach Frank Martin is expected to add 6-foot-10 center Eric Cobb to the class, the coach is busy entertaining another possible addition to his program.

According to Paul Biancardi of ESPN.com, former Charlotte shooting guard Keyshawn Woods is making an unofficial visit with the Gamecocks on Monday. Woods is transferring after a freshman season that saw him average more than eight points and two rebounds per game.

Woods (6-2) also told Biancardi that he is looking at Creighton, Butler, St. Joseph’s and VCU for visits.

Woods is a native of Gastonia and was the 2014 Gatorade Player of the Year in North Carolina. Last season he led Conference USA in three point field goal percentage at 46.6 percent. He had 12 double figure scoring games.

The Gamecocks have seen Woods in action. In 13 minutes off the bench against them in a tournament game in Charleston in November, Woods scored six points.
