Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk transferred to South Carolina.
Belk (6'3/325) signed on with Clemson as a four-star recruit in the most recent class and subsequently took part in spring practice with the Tigers. However, the allure of home began to gnaw on the defensive tackle out of Richburg, South Carolina, and he announced his transfer intent in mid-May. Georgia and South Carolina both received visits from Belk before he made his decision to side with the Gamecocks. He'll have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations, but a redshirt may well have been in order for him regardless. Rivals ranked Belk as the No. 2 defensive tackle prospect in the state of South Carolina for the 2018 cycle. Jun 9 - 12:34 PM

Transferring Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk said that his unofficial visit to South Carolina on Wednesday "went great."

"I had a good conversation with [C]oach Muschamp about how much I can help the team. The coaches are still the fans towards me. They still want me. Showed that feelings never changed," Belk said. Several times in the above quote, the 6-foot-3, 325-pounder alluded to the fact that he and South Carolina were involved in an advanced courtship over the winter before the four-star defensive tackle signed on with Clemson in February. Georgia is playing host to the defensive tackle on Thursday. Regardless of whether he opts for the Gamecocks or Bulldogs (or Chanticleers -- Coastal Carolina should be viewed as a dark horse contender, here), he'll have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA regulations.

Transferring Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk is visiting South Carolina and Georgia this week.

Belk (6'3/325) will be checking out the Gamecocks on Wednesday and the Bulldogs on Thursday. South Carolina could have an inside track, here. The former four-star defensive tackle was seeing heavy interest from HC Will Muschamp and staff throughout the most recent recruiting cycle and said that he was very close to signing with the program before he ultimately sided with Clemson. Coastal Carolina is also a potential player, here, though they should be considered a longshot for Belk's services. Having enrolled early at Clemson, this move -- wherever it might take him in the FBS -- is going to cost him the 2018 season, as he'll be required to sit it out to satisfy transfer regulations.

Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk will transfer.

Belk (6'3/325) signed on with the Tigers during the early December window. Coming out of high school, he was viewed by Rivals as the No. 2 defensive tackle prospect in the state of South Carolina for the 2018 cycle. He takes the (very) early exit having earlier participated in Clemson's spring practice. While Belk has yet to play a game at the college level, NCAA regulations are going to force him to sit out the upcoming season should he transfer within the FBS. He could apply for an immediate-eligibility waiver from the governing body once he arrives at his new program, but that's not something we would bank on to be successful. South Carolina -- who pushed hard for his pledge before Belk opted in with Clemson -- is probably the program to watch now that big defensive tackle is back on the free agent market.

Clemson signed four-star 2018 DT Josh Belk.

Belk comes from Richburg, South Carolina, and the 6-foot-3, 290-pound defensive tackle was rated the second-best prospect from the state. Scouting reports say Belk has quality speed and an explosive first step, but needs to work on his hand-placement if he's going to be a pass-rusher. This is a loaded class for the Tigers, and Belk has a chance to continue the Clemson tradition of quality defensive lineman.
