USC has hit the back end of its spring practice drills and there’s plenty of things for Will Muschamp to update. Muschamp gave a detailed rundown on the injured players on his roster, who is no longer on his roster, and where things stand with the race for starting quarterback. A teaser: It sounds like everyone not Michael Scarnecchia is still in the mix. Freshman Brandon McIlwain took the first rep of snaps Tuesday, but Muschamp said Connor Mitch will get reps with the 1st team and so will Lorenzo Nunez, once he returns from his sprained knee. Perry Orth, is out for the rest of the spring with his broken collarbone but Muschamp said he performed well while he was healthy. The battle will continue into the summer.
The Gamecocks will hold their spring game a week from Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium. Take a listen to what Muschamp had to say below.
