The firing of Will Muschamp as head football coach at USC last weekend has not deterred the staff from continuing to recruit. The Gamecock coaches are not only contacting their current commitments trying to keep them in the boat, they are still prospecting for new recruits for the 2022 class and beyond. One who just received an offer from the Gamecocks is speedy WR Cameron Miller (6-1 190) of Memphis. His season was canceled this fall due to Covid, but coaches saw enough of him in 2019 as a do-it-all offensive player to offer him.
“Coach (Bobby) Bentley sent me a text and he said he looks forward to recruiting me,” Smith said. “He said whenever the new head coach gets caught up at South Carolina, he said he would get me on the phone with him. He said he wants to give me a scholarship to South Carolina.”
Miller is friends with Gamecock tight end Keveon Mullins, so he’s gotten some insight from him about the program. He understands the tough times the Gamecocks are going thru right now but is willing to wait and see what happens when the new staff is in place.
‘I think South Carolina competes at the highest in the SEC East. They’ve been going up and down this year, but that’s just how it is in the SEC. But South Carolina is pretty good.”
Miller also holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Arkansas, Memphis, Michigan, Ole Miss, Missouri, Tennessee, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech. He has visited Alabama, Memphis, Tennessee and Mississippi State and said those four have been recruiting him pretty hard along with Auburn. He wants to make his decision next year going into his senior season..
Miller is rated as a four-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He’s ranked 49th nationally among wide receivers in his class and as the #12 prospect in Tennessee for 2022.
