Blake McClain to undergo surgery for broke foot
 
Lovely....

Incoming freshman defensive end Blake McClain is set to arrive at South Carolina this week to prepare to start Summer I, but will not be ready to begin summer workouts in a full capacity with his teammates.

McClain suffered a broken foot working out around a month and a half ago and will likely undergo surgery shortly after arriving at USC. McClain, a 270-pound defensive end who chose the Gamecocks over Nebraska on National Signing Day, could also miss fall camp.

That would make it difficult for McClain, who was considered the No. 24 strongside defensive end in the country in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite, to help the Gamecocks as a true freshman.

I don't think so. Ritchie and Sawyer didn't qualify. McClain is hurt. And Wideman and Thomas may not qualify either.

The reasoning behind the 3-4 is becoming more and more clear.

Let's hope D Washington can bring it hard this summer and fall. I hope he can reach his potential because we need it at DE!

Looks like that post NSD grade of a D C2 gave the DL if those players didn't qualify was being forgiving.

Lamin may be the only DL we signed this year who sees the field, which is really quite sad.

Might as well not play any games now. The season'a over before it began! Something tells me we'll still be ok. Unlike so many Gamecock fans, I don't make excuses.

Make excuses for what?

What do we need to make excuses for?

D Washington will not reach his potential this year. He is injury prone and appears to not have the mental toughness for SEC caliber football at this moment. I've seen players not live up to their potential every year. It is hard to evaluate if a player has mental toughness beyond high school where they had huge athletic advantages over their peers.

Are you serious or just trolling? The kid had a concussion that was not noticed, then got a 2nd concussion. So a concussion on top of a concussion. Not injury prone at all. The kid has no "mental toughness" issues.

Yea I agree. It's a little harsh to call him injury prone at this point.

Although I wouldn't expect him to really contribute much this year. He basically lost the entire fall and winter last year. A year where he should of been practicing and getting stronger. He couldn't work out or practice so his RS year was basically wasted. Then on top of that he injured his hand during Spring ball and missed most of the Spring.

With the non qualifiers and injuries I think our depth at DE will have to roll with what we have
Dixon
English
Harris
Johnson
Cooper

If Thomas and/or Wideman make it in, either or both could end up starting, but at least will be on the 2 Deep. Things just got thin at the DE position, we have a bunch of WDE's, but not any SDE's besides Dixon.
