University of South Carolina football offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield and defensive coordinator Clayton White met with the media via Zoom on Thursday to recap practice to this point and preview this weekend’s spring game. The university announced on Thursday that the contest has been moved to Sunday at 2pm, due to the forecast of rain on Saturday. Capacity for the “Garnet and Black” game was been increased to approximately 15,000 fans last week.
Satterfield voiced how pleased he’s been with the wide receiving group, which has been an area of major interest throughout this spring. He also praised his running back room with the depth and ability that exists within that unit. When asked about installation of the new offense, Satterfield illustrated that everything has been put in place with his squad executing at about a 65% success rate.
Meantime, White seemed extremely pleased with the effort of his defensive unit, while being pleasantly surprised at how good the Gamecocks have been up front. Former Conway standout Tonka Hemingway was singled out as one of the biggest surprises this spring. He also detailed how things might have to be tweaked a bit moving forward due to the NCAA’s pending rule to reduce physicality in practice.
