South Carolina HC Will Muschamp said that the team "feel[s] good" about the chances of an eligibility waiver for freshman DT Josh Belk.
"We haven’t gotten any feedback. We’re still going through that process in filing our appeal for Josh," Muschamp said, later explaining that "[h]e’s got a very good case in his situation with his family that he should be eligible." After initially signing with Clemson as a four-star recruit over the winter -- Rivals ranked him as the No. 2 defensive tackle in the 2018 class -- Belk transferred over to the Gamecocks in early June. We're not privy to the details of the "family situation" that Muschamp cites, but there's clearly optimism within the program that the Richburg, South Carolina, native will receive clearance to play before the close of camp. Whether Belk is even physically ready for the campaign is a real question, as his weight had ballooned up to 359 pounds by the time he arrived on campus. The team is already working to help him cut weight as they prep for the upcoming campaign. Aug 11 - 1:09 PM
