#STRecruiting Notebook 7-12

USC football coach did not get the news he wanted to hear Monday afternoon when his top 2023 quarterback target Dylan Lonergan announced a commitment to Alabama. But that disappointment was offset by a call Beamer did receive on Monday afternoon not long after Lonergan made his announcement. Beamer issued one of his “Welcome Home” commitment tweets alert his fans to some good news. “Been on a plane all day but just got a GREAT phone call when I landed!! Let’s Go!!” is how Beamer put it in his tweet. As of Monday night, no recruit had gone public with a commitment announcement connected to Beamer’s tweet.

By our count, there are 22 uncommitted prospects offered by the Gamecocks who have included them on their short list of favorites. Three of them have already set commitment announcement dates for this month…WR Davion Dozier on Wednesday, WR Carmelo Taylor July 25th and OT Oluwatosin Babalade July 31st.

2023 RHP Drew Titsworth (6-4 220) of Frankenmuth, MI, who had been committed to Eric Bakich at Michigan, changed his commitment to Clemson. He becomes the seventh player who played for Bakich at Michigan or who was committed to him there to join him at Clemson.

6-7 Coen Carr of Legacy Early College in Greenville, who has a Clemson offer and is drawing interest from USC, was offered by NC State.

  1. I’ve got 32 uncommitted offers, by my count/spreadsheet. I’ve included anybody I’ve seen with warm/high interest on 247 and On3. Although 7 of those are heavy leans to a different school, at least from what I’ve seen online. So call it 25 players for the time being, that we could potentially land. 9 on Defense and 16 on Offense. A lot of DL and WR’s still on the board.

    1. DE Nyckoles Harbor
      Kelby Collins
      Zavion Hardy
      Desmond Umeozulu
      Cameron Lenhardt
      Monteque Rhames

      DT Xavier McLeod
      Jordan Hall
      Connor Knight
      Elijah Davis (JUCO)

      CB Chris Peal
      Elijah Rogers

      RB Ike Daniels
      Jaylen Johnson

      WR Jaden Greathouse
      Tyler Williams
      Ayden Williams
      Devin Hyatt
      Carmelo Taylor
      Cayden Lee
      Davion Dozier
      Daidren Zipperer
      Vicari Swain
      Jaylon Cunningham

      TE Jayvontay Conner

      OT Oluwatosin Babalade
      D.J. Chester
      Caden Jones
      Jatavious Shivers
      Elijah Philippe (JUCO)

      OG Markee Anderson
      Paul Mubenga

  2. Yeah I figured that some of them were. That’s just who I’ve gotten from recruiting sites, mostly guys who have “Warm” interest on 247sports. I listed the 7 who are heavy leans to other schools also, but have us on their short list. I’m sure the board in the coaches meeting room looks quite different than what I’ve got, and that some of those guys aren’t actually being recruited anymore.

  3. Here is my prediction/wish list:

    DE Zavion Hardy (6’5, 262)
    OG Markee Anderson (6’5, 305)
    DT Xzavier McLeod (6’4, 324)
    WR Devin Hyatt (6’2, 194)
    OT Oluwatosin Babalade (6’5, 296)
    DE Monteque Rhames (6’6, 240)
    WR Cayden Lee (6’0, 180)
    DT Connor Knight (6’3, 275)
    RB Jaylen Johnson (5’9, 190)
    DT Elijah Davis (6’4, 300)
    OT Elijah Philippe (6’6, 300)

    Are any of these prospects out of the question already? There are some others I would like to us to sign also, like Harbor and Collins, but this is my best guess at who we might sign.
