  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

  01/05/21 - Kevin HarrisSo/2023, South Carolina, 5-10, 225 (DS#8 RB) + More +

  The rise of South Carolina running back Kevin Harris continues. Before the season, it wasn't clear that the sophomore tailback would even start for the Gamecocks. Months later, Harris' name has surfaced on an early list of odds for the 2021 Heisman Trophy, college football's highest individual honor. While not a frontrunner for the award - Harris (+2000) ranks 16th according to odds from MyBookie Sportsbook - his inclusion is a testament to a breakout 2020 season. After emerging early in the season as South Carolina's bell cow, Harris became the ninth Gamecock to run for 1,000 yards in a season. His 1,138 yards and 15 touchdowns came in just 10 games and are fifth-most yards and tied for second-most touchdowns in a single season in prgoram history. - The State

  Former Georgia Tech wide receiver Ahmarean Brown will be a South Carolina Gamecock. Brown, who led the Yellow Jackets in receptions, receiving yardage and touchdown catches as a freshman in 2019 before entering the transfer portal at the end of the 2020 season, made his announcement Thursday. In 2019, Brown, from Tampa, Fla., caught 21 passes for 396 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman, tying Calvin Johnson's school record for touchdown catches by a freshman. This season, his production declined, with 11 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown in seven games as wide receiver Jalen Camp and running back Jahmyr Gibbs assumed larger roles in the passing game. Brown missed the team's final three games. - Atlanta Journal Constitution

  Keem Green decided to seek more playing time elsewhere. A 6-foot-5, 320-pound defensive lineman, Green has entered the transfer portal after recording three tackles in five games this season as a reserve for Nebraska. He made two tackles in the Huskers' season opener at fifth-ranked Ohio State and added another stop against Illinois. He appeared in only one of the final four games. He originally joined Nebraska's roster in August 2019 - at the midpoint of preseason drills - as a transfer from Highlands (Kansas) Community College.

By playing in only three games, he maintained a redshirt season. - Lincoln Journal Star

  12/29/20 - Nick MuserSr/2022, South Carolina, 6-3, 250 (DS#13 TE) + More +

  Nothing's official yet, but South Carolina football's new tight ends coach certainly seems confident that the Gamecocks' top player at the position will return for another season. Erik Kimrey has been a part of new head coach Shane Beamer's staff for only a couple of days, but he's taken the time to speak with senior Nick Muse, who led the tight end unit in 2020 with 30 catches, 425 yards and a touchdown. And from that conversation, Kimrey said, he got a positive indication that Muse will be back. "Had a great conversation, and I feel confident that he's gonna be back next year," Kimrey said. "He's still working through some things in terms of talking to some people, but we had a wonderful conversation. He seems like a great guy and I look forward to him coming back and being a great leader on this team. We need him." - Rock Hill Herald

  South Carolina wide receiver Shi Smith made his plans somewhat clear when he walked on senior day. Then his coach, Mike Bobo, shared his plans publicly. And Tuesday night, the Gamecocks senior said his goodbye. The Union County product could have come back for one season, owing to the NCAA's altered rule during the Coronavirus pandemic. But after four years in Columbia, Smith is moving on and declaring for the NFL draft. Smith worked his way back from a concussion to play his final college game on Saturday. He finished his career with 174 catches, 2,204 yards and 13 touchdowns.
