South Carolina hopes BUCK D.J. Wonnum can regain the pass-rushing form he flashed before a rash of injuries limited his playing time in 2018.

Gamecocks OLB/Buck coach Mike Peterson addressed the media following practice Wednesday. Peterson wouldn’t name starters at this time, but he referred to DJ Wonnum, Aaron Sterling, Danny Fennell, JJ Enagbare and Brad Johnson as “top guys.”

Peterson, a 13-year NFL veteran, also addressed the pro potential of DJ Wonnum and how the number of players forced into action last season due to injury should improve the depth of Gamecocks pass rushers in 2019.
