2017 Gamecock Signing Class: Offensive Line
The offensive line is coming off a disappointing 2016 season, but now Gamecock fans are hoping that new offensive line coach, Eric Wolford, can fix the problems that hampered last year’s team, as well as sign and develop new offensive linemen for the future.
Summie Carlay: Carlay is a 3-star offensive tackle from Laurens, South Carolina. He enrolled early at South Carolina, so he will be able to participate in winter workouts and spring practice. Carlay only had offers from South Carolina, North Carolina State, and Coastal Carolina, and he was invited to the Shrine Bowl All-Star Game.
Eric Douglas: This Charlotte native played at high school powerhouse Mallard Creek. He had a number of notable offers, including Clemson, Florida, North Carolina and Penn State. Douglas is a 3- or 4-star recruit depending on what recruiting service you look at, and also participated in the Shrine Bowl.
Dennis Daley: This 3-star junior college prospect was originally committed to South Carolina coming out of local Ridge View High School. Daley spent the past two seasons playing offensive tackle at Georgia Military College. His only other scholarship offer came from Georgia State.
Jordan Rhodes: Rhodes is a 3-star offensive tackle from Fairburn, Georgia. He picked the Gamecocks over SEC rivals Missouri and Mississippi State.
Jordon Carty: This 6-7 offensive tackle decided to sign with South Carolina over Oregon State and Mississippi State. Carty is a 3-star prospect from Hollywood, Florida.
