South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp highlights the Gamecocks' 2019 signing class as part of the early signing period in December.

Cornerback Shilo Sanders, just back from the Under Armour All-America Game, said nothing’s changed with his recruiting.

South Carolina still leads. The 6-foot, 185 pounder will visit Tennessee this weekend. He’s not sure when Will Muschamp will make his in home visit, and not sure when he’ll announce.

He’s also taken official visits to USC and Colorado State.

The son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders helped lead his high school in Texas to a state title this season. He had at least five interceptions. returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and chipped in as a punt returner, receiver and even a punter for the 14-0 team. He also nearly had an interception in the Under Armour game. 

New offer out

The Gamecocks last week offered 2020 athlete Ja’Qurious Conley (6-foot-2 190) of Jacksonville, N.C. He also has offers from Duke, N.C. State, North Carolina, Virginia Tech and East Carolina. At this point in the process, the Gamecocks hold a strong spot with Conley.

“Out of the offers I have, South Carolina is in my top four list,” Conley said. “Duke, Virginia Tech, NC State (are the others). But that’s not in order. I like a lot about South Carolina as far as the schooling and the football program. They have me as athlete but I just feel like where ever they put me I’m going to do what’s needed for the team.”

Conley said he primarily plays wide receiver and safety. He was a stat sheet stuffer as a junior with 517 rushing yards and seven touchdowns, 11 catches for 290 yards and three touchdowns, 1,459 all-purpose yards with averages of 38 yards on kickoff returns and 24 yards on punt returns and 79 total tackles with three interceptions.



Note:

Gamecocks cornerback target Dequanteous Watts of Atlanta has set Jan. 28 for his announcement date. He has official visits set with USC for Jan. 18, Oregon on the 24th.
