I think he is a Gamecock, he is a legacy, and this is obviously the direction Spurrier and the coaching staff are looking to move back into with taking Nunez and pushing dual QB's. We will have 2-3 seasons of pocket passing offense, then look to move back into the spread/zone read for who ever is Steve's successor.


Shot in the dark, I think coach Elliott makes a great candidate.

Didn't realize he was a legacy, what's his connection?

As for our next coach, I'd think Ward would get a good look.

He has great connections in the Atlanta area, he's fairly young, a solid defense guy, and he's a minority.

All win-wins.

Probably no different that we have Nunez in 2015.....

USC made the cut Tuesday night to the final six with 2016 QB Brandon McIlwain (6-1 210) of Newtown, PA. Joining the Gamecocks on the short list are Penn State, Auburn, Virginia Tech, Duke and and Florida.
‘I’ve been talking to the coaches at South Carolina since my freshman year so I have a great relationship with the coaches there,” McIlwain said. “My dad went there and my grandmother lives ten minutes away (in Irmo). It’s a place that really feels like home for me. I’ve visited there multiple times and it’s a really great place. Great facilities. Great stadium. The game atmosphere was amazing. All that put together just made it feel like a place where I can really see myself being.”
McIlwain is a threat as a passer and runner and feels is similar in playing style to former Gamecock star Connor Shaw.
“We also run the spread in my school so I can see myself fitting in with that offense,” McIlwain said. “(Coach Mangus) has made it clear that I’m his top guy. He’s really not going to offer any other quarterbacks in my class until a little farther down the road.”
McIlwain has visited all six of his schools and he said it’s even between them. He plans to visit all six again during the season and is looking at USC’s game against Georgia as his possible visit date to Columbia. After these visits he will get down to making his decision and wants to get that down between December and early spring.
“I want to make my decision as soon as I can because I do want to help whatever school I commit to help them recruit,” McIlwain said. “Then, I don’t want to rush it and make a decision that I could possible regret. I’m going to make sure the time is right but do it as soon as I can after my season.”
Last season McIlwain passed for 1446 yards and 11 touchdowns and rushed for 600 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Wimbush just flipped from PSU to ND. That certainly doesn't help us to fend off PSU.

You can probably scratch Florida off his list. That place is going down in flames.

Many believe we lead and the CB on 24/7 reflects it.

Particularly because we're (apparently) not recruiting anyone else at QB for 2016.
