Default Players Leaving After this Season

I know everyone knows of Clowney, Vic, Quarles, etc leaving for the draft, but we're also going to be thinning the herd this year as well. Don't be surprised to see a good bit of guys transfer out this offseason.

So far, biggest name you won't see in a Gamecock uniform next year: Ahmad Christian.

That's the first time that name has been mentioned.

Why wouldn't he be back? He's in line to be a starting CB in 2014.

You serious, Clark? He's in line to be the starting CB. He was the first CB off the bench this year in almost all the games.

Why the hell would Christian leave?

We're screwed at CB if he leaves

Not saying your source is inaccurate, but it makes zero sense for Christian to transfer. The guy was is 3rd on the depth chart, logged a ton of snaps, and played considerably well. Moreover, our cornerback situation in its current state is by no means solid with the expected losses of Legree and Hampton. I guess what I'm saying is.... I'm not buying what you're selling.

That's fine. Believe what you want, or just wait til the story breaks then. Papers are signed, he's gone.

The only reason I could see him leaving is if he wanted to play baseball. I am not sure if he will be on the baseball team or not this season, but the task of making the team is very difficult for football players, as they don't get the amount of practice time as the other players who are able to attend fall semester practices. I really hope he doesn't leave because he has been playing well at corner this season, and appears to be a lock to start next year, with other corner spot up for grabs.

Depth wise, yes it is. We could possibly have only two corners returning next season and one hasn't even played a down (Ali Groves) .. We'll have to wait to see what happens in recruiting these next 2 months to see how big of an impact this really is/would be if Christian leaves.

Getting Green, flipping Lammons, and possibly taking a guy like Deion Hallmon would ease the pain some. I think you also have to force Jamari Smith back to CB this Spring and take another look at Sasser, Moody, and cross-training Elder.

This offseason, its imperative that Gurley and McWilliams get healthy. Full speed healthy. Thats really what I'm concerned about the most because both of those guys at 100% make our secondary a lot better going into next season.

Smith would help too, right? I know it's believed that he'll grow into a safety, but at least early on he would be a CB.

He is like Chaz Elder. I think he is going to be too stiff to play Corner but he could end up having to play it out of necessity.

But then again, this is what Whammy does. He recruits guys that are built like Safeties and tries to crosstrain them into Corners. It might actually bite him next year though.

I remember reading about a month ago that the coaches were pleased with how McWilliams had progressed throughout the season and he looked like he was 100%. Hopefully that translates into the spring/summer.

Yea it looks like it is biting us hard right now not getting Corners. We have all the guys at Safety or hybrid Spur like Sasser, moody, Elder, Fleetwood, Camara, Gurley. And not a one of them is suited for CB except maybe Elder or Sasser.

And we're sitting here with 3 maybe 2 CBs on team, with 1 of them never playing a down. Unreal.

No choice but to move Jamari back to CB.
