Highly touted prospect Alshon Jeffery is poised to meet the qualifying requirements to become a South Carolina Gamecock.According to a source close to Jeffery, the Calhoun County receiver had an improved SAT score and needs to maintain his current A this week in an online course.
Combined, the test score and online course are enough to meet eligibility requirements, the source said. Barring any unexpected hitches, Jeffery would enroll at USC this weekend, according to the source.
Jeffery was one of the gems of the Gamecocks’ 29-player signing class – a 6-foot-3, 217-pounder who caught 35 passes for 740 yards and three touchdowns as a senior. He initially committed to Southern Cal – and donned a Trojans blanket during a Signing Day press conference before pulling out a Gamecocks cap.
