Default THAT JUST HAPPENED!! Ok, they're Gamecocks now; So where do they fit in, impact?

I guess its ok now to discuss these rookies here now, since they are no longer recruits but signees.

So, we have Wideman, Lamin and the Blake kid all coming in at DL. Which one has the best immediate impact? Lamin is a JUCO obviously, so he may start. Word on Wideman is he's game ready right now.

DB. We got a couple great ones. Lammons and Green are 4-star, and may need to start immediately. Concerns?

And we landed a stud at LB, with Bryson Allen-Williams. He along with Skai Moore are gonna be terrifying for opponents!!!

I think this defense is shaping up to be a monster. It can be really good this year. But my goodness, 2015??? USC's D is gonna be top 5 in the nation by then. And, seems most of these new guys have great attitudes, humble, hard working. The kind of guys who show up as 3/4 star recruits, and put in 110% every single day and become 1st rounders.

The staff really wrapped up some good ones, where do you all think they fit into this team and on the field? They're officially Gamecocks. Time to start putting the pieces together for 2014.

Offense; i'd say Crosby might see some time at TE this year. Maybe Samuel mid/late season at WR or Returner.

On Defense; Lamin, Sawyer and Thomas should all see time on the Dline. Wideman will also play if he qualifies, some say there's a question. Smith and Green will play at CB.

If our freshman back up LB leads us in sacks then we're in trouble.

Biggest impact next year:
1. Wes Green
2. Jhaustin Thomas (or whichever freshman DE sits atop the depth chart...Sawyer/Wideman?)

Our linebackers don't tend to get too many sacks.

My bet is that Thomas or English will lead the team in sacks.

He may not even get enough meaningful playing time next year to lead the team in anything, much less sacks.

Not a slam on the kid at all, but come on...he's 16 or 17, and hasn't even broke a sweat in our conditioning program yet...much less participate in practice.

He'll have the chance to be a great one, but don't etch his name on the Butkus Award when he hasn't even been to his Senior Prom yet.

The problem is, we don't really have a premium pass rusher on the team anymore. That area is going to be an MAJOR issue for us at least early next season. It's more of a testament of who we lose and the lack of players we have to replace them. Our talent at DE is going to drop off a cliff, and BAW is already an advanced pass rusher and has more raw ability to get the QB than anyone else on our roster at the moment unless Wideman or Sawyer make it in. Given those factors and his widely reported work ethic (second to none), I don't think it's that big of a stretch.

As for his actual position at LB, I think he'll gradually earn more playing time and work his way on the two-deep. It'll be tough for him to log a lot of playing time given our talent there. His immediate impact will come with his hand down in situations where the QB needs to be pressured.

watch film on Sawyer, if that's not premium pass rush I don't know what premium pass rush is. Larenz Bryant is also an elite pass rusher, and as you mentioned BAW. I wouldn't worry about it bruh, the only reason our pass rush looked bad last season is that recievers were always wide ass open, and we inserted a completely different system with coach Adams. Give Deke his players and 2 years, tweet that

"That just happened!!" is just a fun quote from the movie Talladega Nights. And I used it to reference the fact that we just kinda swiped some pretty big time recruits out from under UGA, UF, FSU, Wisky and Nebraska's noses. All were committed at one point to those schools.

So, a little fun "That just happened!!" if you saw the movie was appropriate.

Exciting times. Logically our biggest concerns without the incoming freshmen on the team is at CB and DL, so you automatically have to assume that the two big corner commits are going to be impact freshman, along with a few of the incoming DL players.

John Whittle on 107.5 seemed more confident on Wideman making it in than Sawyer.

After watching tape of DJ smith, I can definitely see him growing into a safety. He has the best tackling ability for a DB that I've ever seen coming out of HS at least from the random highlights I watch on YouTube.
