 Jordan Strachan, South Carolina, Player News

  South Carolina's defense is dealing with some tough injury news. Defensive starters Jordan Strachan and Mo Kaba will miss the remainder of the season, USC confirmed on Monday. Both suffered ACL injuries in Saturday's 44-30 loss to Arkansas. "I'm extremely disappointed and heart-broken for both of these young men," Beamer said through a statement. "They both worked really hard to prepare for this season and were off to great starts for us. Their best football is still in front of them." Kaba, a junior, was injured in the second quarter while pressuring KJ Jefferson in the backfield. He was helped off the field and didn't put much weight on his leg. He also suffered an ACL injury in high school. - Rock Hill Herald

  South Carolina lost starting linebacker Mohamed Kaba and backup defensive end Jordan Strachan for the season after both suffered ACL injuries during a weekend loss at Arkansas. Gamecocks coach Shane Beamer announced the status of both players Monday, two days after the 44-30 loss to the Razorbacks. It's a huge blow for a South Carolina defense that faces No. 1 Georgia at home Saturday. Kaba is a 6-foot-2, 239 pound junior from Clinton, North Carolina, who started the first two games for South Carolina (1-1). He had eight tackles and a pass breakup. The 6-5, 245-pound Strachan is from Kingsland, Georgia, and in his sixth year of football after transferring from Georgia State. Strachan had 10 tackles and led the Gamecocks with three stops behind the line of scrimmage. "I'm extremely disappointed and heartbroken for both of these young men,” Beamer said in a statement. "They both worked really hard to prepare for this season and were off to great starts for us." - South Carolina/AP College Football

  South Carolina's home opener against Georgia State doesn't just serve as the team's season debut. It's a bit of a reunion for one Gamecock. Jordan Strachan played his first season with USC last year, transferring in from Georgia State. He learned about the scheduled matchup against his former team midway through the 2021 season - at that point, however, he was leaning toward leaving the Gamecocks and trying his hand at pro football. Strachan (pronounced STRAHN) had one more year of eligibility and kept the game against Georgia State in mind when deciding to exercise his option for another year in college. "That played a part in it, for sure," Strachan said. "I just feel like I'm supposed to be a part of that game." While playing for the Panthers, Strachan led the FBS in sacks during his junior year with 10.5. The edge that he and his former teammates played with, he said, was fueled by Georgia State not having the same resources of a Power Five college like USC.

As an SEC school, South Carolina has advantages with facilities, recruiting and other factors to keep the program competitive. "All of us were hungry," Strachan said. "We're not the five-stars, the four-stars. So I just brought that over, that type of attitude." That mentality is evident to his current team, specifically Defensive coordinator Clayton White. White commended Strachan for returning as a "super senior" and getting the chance to enhance his game. Now, with a year of SEC football under his belt, Strachan still carries that competitive mindset with him. "He made a name for himself in that Group of Five level, but I think there's a competitive nature in him that wants to show that, 'I can do it at this level as well," White said. - Rock Hill Herald

  Kingsley "JJ" Enagbare is generating potential first-round buzz for the 2022 NFL Draft and led the Gamecocks with six sacks in 2020. The fourth-year Gamecock also came down with 30 tackles and seven tackles for loss despite only playing eight games due to a late-season injury. Enagbare is joined by highly-touted sophomore Jordan Burch, who has plenty of potential at the other end of the line. He also played in eight games because of an injury but totaled 19 total tackles and 2.5 TFLs in his first season.

"He's going to have multiple roles," first-year defensive coordinator Clayton White said of Burch. "I will find ways to get him on the field in pressure moments and impact moments so he can show his improvement." Enagbare and Burch are likely to be backed up by experienced fifth-year Aaron Sterling and Georgia State transfer Jordan Strachan. White said Strachan, who led the nation in sacks in 2020, will be a "major surprise" in the SEC. - Rock Hill Herald

  Coming into a program where he had to heavily play the transfer portal and take a lot of flyers, new head coach Shane Beamer had "pass rush" high on the list of topics he needed to address. He feels he found it, both in a sack-producer (Jordan Strachan) and a linebacker (Debo Williams) to clean up the rest. "Both of them got good talent, they got some talent with them," defensive end Aaron Sterling said. "It's going to help us out tremendously. They're going to be a good impact for us." Strachan, pronounced "Strahn," transferred from Georgia State, where he tied for the FBS lead in 2020 with 10½ sacks. He also had 14 tackles for loss, all after wrecking a knee in the first game of the 2019 season. "Last year, doing what I did, I entered the portal and a lot of schools came after me. I wanted to challenge myself, me and my family wanted a challenge, to see what I could do at this stage and this level of football," Strachan said. "I felt like I did everything I was going to do at the level I was and the school I was at, and I wanted to play big-time football not too far from home." - The Post and Courier

  South Carolina football just got some much-needed help with its pass rush. Georgia State's Jordan Strachan, the nation's co-leader in sacks in the 2020 season, announced Wednesday he is transferring to the Gamecocks. Strachan put his name in the transfer portal on Monday. Strachan posted the news of his new school on Twitter where he thanked Georgia State, his coaches, mentors and trainers to help get to this point. This year, Strachan had a school-record 10.5 sacks, tied for most in FBS, and had a school record 14.5 tackles for loss as part of his 41 tackles. He was part of a Georgia State defense that had a school-record 35 sacks. - Rock Hill Herald

  Georgia State's Jordan Strachan has grown accustomed to having his name mispronounced. He's heard it butchered every possible way. Emphasis on the first syllable. Emphasis on the last syllable. The silent "ch" pronounced like chainsaw or as a hard "K" sound like pecan. For the record, the name is pronounced "strahn," as in fawn or lawn. But it's perfectly OK to call him "Stretch," the moniker hung on him by a former strength coach who couldn't figure it out, either. "I've heard all types of stuff," he said. "I'm hoping to change that and get my name corrected." This week the junior spread his name on higher level when he was named the Sun Belt Conference's defensive player of the week. Strachan was instrumental in helping the Panthers defeat Troy 38-36 and earn their first road win against the Trojans. Strachan had four tackles, three for loss, 2.5 sacks, caused a fumble and recovered two fumbles - returning one 43 yards to set up a touchdown. Since his phone was dead, Strachan learned about the award from teammate Antavious Lane, who was given the same honor after Georgia State's win over East Carolina.

"After practice he came up and told me I got it," Strachan said. "It was shocking. Lot of hard work." The award was confirmation that Strachan had made a complete recovered from the torn left ACL he suffered last season just 17 plays into the historic win at Tennessee that began the 2019 season. "Had he not torn his ACL, he was going to have an extremely successful year for us," coach Shawn Elliott said. "He made so many plays in fall camp it wasn't a secret that he had the ability to create explosive defensive plays. He's worked extremely hard to get back, and now he's reaping the benefits." - Marietta Daily Journal

  OCT 26 SUN BELT DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jordan Strachan, Georgia State,...Georgia State outside linebacker Jordan Strachan collected three tackles for loss, including 2.5 sacks, and recovered two fumbles to help the Panthers to a hard-fought, 36-34 victory over Troy. Strachan, the junior from Kingsland, Ga., helped Georgia State hold Troy to just 40 yards rushing, the second-lowest figure in school history. In the pivotal third quarter, in which Georgia State outscored Troy 20-0, Strachan had two sacks, 2.5 tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

He sacked Trojan quarterback Jacob Free and stripped the ball deep in Troy territory, recovering at the Troy 8-yard line. Four plays later, the Panthers scored to take a 33-21 lead. His first fumble recovery came in the second quarter as he scooped up a loose ball and returned it 63 yards to the Troy 20 for the fourth-longest fumble return in GSU history. For the season, Strachan leads the Panthers and the Sun Belt with 6.5 tackles for loss and five sacks, which has already tied the GSU season sack record. In the last two games alone, he has four sacks, 4.5 tackles for loss, two fumble recoveries and two caused fumbles. - Sun Belt Football
