‘We got better today’: Muschamp recaps the Gamecocks’ 2019 signing class
South Carolina would love to land that “special” running back in the 2020 class and one the Gamecocks have an eye on is Cartavious “Tank” Bigsby (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) out of Hoganville, Ga. And he has his eye on the Gamecocks with a return visit coming up.
Bigsby visited USC this past season and he and his mother plan a return visit for a junior day Jan. 26. He said regular contact with the Gamecock head coach Will Muschamp and recruiter Bobby Bentley has put them in good shape with him.
“Talk about the facilities and how I could be a big factor on the team,” Bigsby said. We talk a lot. They’re good. It’s a good school.”
Clemson also is among the offers for Bigsby. He didn’t make it to Death Valley this season but he was there in 2017 and he’s heard from the coaches.
“The coaches and the offense that they run,” he said about what’s grabbed his attention with Clemson. “I don’t know if they want me to play running back or DB.”
Bigsby also plays corner but he said he wants to be a running back in college. He was the 2A Offensive Player of the Year in Georgia by the AJC.
Last season, he had 2,221 yards and 22 touchdowns on 9.3 yards per carry.
Bigsby said he will announce a top five soon and has said USC, Auburn and Georgia will make that short list. Some of his other offers are Ohio State, Notre Dame, Miami, Penn State and Michigan.
He plans to announce a decision this summer prior to his senior season.
