DE Byron Young of Carvers Bay and Georgia Military JC, who was offered by USC under Will Muschamp, said he was contacted by new coach Shane Beamer Tuesday. Young said Beamer told him he “wants to bring me back home.” Young also picked up offers Tuesday from Texas and UCF. Young has named a top list of Missouri, Tennessee, Auburn, Mississippi State and Florida State.
Sumter DE Justus Boone, who has been committed to Florida, said Tuesday night he’s not been contacted by Beamer, nor has he had any contact with the Gamecocks in recent weeks. He said he will be signing with the Gators next week.
Former USC commitment safety Jayden Johnson, who is now committed to Arkansas, said he’s not been contacted by Beamer or the Gamecocks and he’ll sign with the Razorbacks next week.
The Gamecocks reached out to CB Des Williams (6-0 177) of East Central JC, MS and DE Cameron Bell (6-5 235) of Chattanooga. Williams had 45 tackles and 4 interceptions last season. He has offers from Valdosta State and Delta State.
Bell said he was contacted last week by Director of Player Personnel Drew Hughes and an offer for him could be in the works. He has offers from UCF, Marshall, San Diego State, Tennessee State and Alabama A&M.
