Default CB's next year.

This is undoubtedly going to be like the LB situation we had this year, they will struggle all year long. Even if we do get DJ Smith or Wesley Green it is hard to imagine they could come in and play the way Vic and Jimmy did.

Hopefully out front 7 or so can get a lot more penetration early on to kinda help that out! I think we will be very athletic at the CB position though, so I'm sure they'll be ok back there

I see a lot of zone being played next year. While the corner position is a concern we should be fine at safety. I think a lot of cover 2 and 3 deep will be played with the emphasis of the DL getting the rush.

I don't think Ronnie Martin is playing anymore from what I've read on here.

Rico is transferring i thought, and if the poster below you is correct then ronnie isnt playing either. Sure hope we get DJ and Wesley although that is no guarantee.

Rico is NOT transferring. Ahmad Christian transferred. Ronnie Martin has practiced all season and there hasn't been any indication of a transfer, to my knowledge.

Rico isn't transferring. Ronnie just needs to get his head on straight. He is a ballet and a tough player. But heeds to show the coaches he is ready to play. Ali, I don't know much about.

Default Re: CB's next year.

Rico needs one more offseason and I think he will be good at one spot. If Ali or Ronnie (who needs to get with it first) can step up and take the other CB role, that'd be great. It'll be tough to place the burden of starting out of the box on a true frosh. Hopefully we can reel in a few more DB's this class to go with Al Harris and Darin Smalls. That being said, I've heard GREAT things about Smalls pure cover ability

Kane Whitehurst played CB in High School, might make a change to defense if needed.

Default Re: CB's next year.

We have 9 scholarships receivers plus Kane Whitehurst coming into spring practice and 3 senior starters plus Shaq coming back. At corner we only have 3 scholarship corners are on the team, and none of them have ever played a down of football for USC. P. Cooper and Whitehurst are both backups who played corner in High School and Cooper practiced at Corner earlier this year and Whitehurst practiced at Corner for Arkansas before transferring. Other than moving a couple of Safeties over, they seem like the best bet for spring football

Are all the recruits going to be a 100% come spring? I thought I heard news of Smalls and Harris suffering some type of injury this year. Can't remember if one was a torn hamstring and another was an ACL injury. Hope I am wrong.

Are ballet dancers tough? Didn't know that! LOL

Lynn Swann took ballet when he was a receiver for the Steelers, so I guess anything's possible.

Default Re: CB's next year.

We've got to use a "Zig Ziglar" approach to cornerback (thinking positive).

"Come to South Carolina. If you've got skills at cornerback, you won't be riding the pine."

I'd use that like crazy to recruit like hell.

Nothing is more important to an athlete than playing time.

Default Re: CB's next year.

Any chance a WR or two might be moved over? I bet Byrd would be a great CB, but that won't happen for obvious reasons. Maybe one of the guys who can't crack the WR rotation might see the field back there.
