Some of you may have seen this link making the rounds today, but an early look at next season’s top 25 has the Gamecocks ranked at No. 21. Here’s what Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News had to say about South Carolina:
21. South Carolina (7-6): Steve Spurrier always has a good defense. Next season, he should have the offense to match.
Wilner has four other SEC squads ranked in the top 25 – Alabama (No. 1), Arkansas (No. 12), Florida (No. 15), Tennessee (No. 18). The Gamecocks play all four of those teams, but only have to travel to Florida next year.
The NFL announced the invites for their annual combine from Feb. 24 to March 2 in Indianapolis. Two Gamecocks made the list – Eric Norwood and Darian Stewart.
