South Carolina senior LB Skai Moore announced he will return to school in 2017.

Great news for Will Muschamp and crew, as Moore decided to return for a fifth year after losing 2016 to a neck injury. Moore will take a redshirt after aggravating a herniated disk from the 2015 season. The star LB recorded 110 tackles in 2015 to earn him All-SEC honors. He's led the Gamecocks in tackles in all three seasons he's played.

South Carolina edge rusher Darius English is participating in the Shrine Game.

Per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, English was graded as a UDFA by NFL scouts entering the season. He may have changed that perception after putting up 60 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and nine sacks as a senior. "He’s a tall, angular pass rusher with good speed and agility off the edge," Pauline wrote. "How he holds up against run blocking is another story. English must show he can hold the point, especially in one-on-one drills, and not get annihilated by blocks. Smart money says he’ll get the job done."

South Carolina hired Eric Wolford as OL coach.

Wolford is returning as the Gamecocks' offensive line coach after spending the past two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

South Carolina redshirt sophomore WR Deebo Samuel caught 14 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 46-39 overtime loss to South Florida in the Birmingham Bowl.

South Carolina didn't come away with the win, but you could see flashes of what the offense might become should Samuel and freshman QB Jake Bentley develop into a legitimate offensive duo. For his part, the 6-foot, 202-pound Samuel notched 100-yard receiving games in three of his last seven contests, ultimately wrapping the 2016 campaign having caught 59 passes for 783 yards and a touchdown over the course of 10 games played.

South Carolina freshman QB Jake Bentley completed 32-of-42 passes for 390 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 46-39 overtime loss to South Florida in the Birmingham Bowl.

South Carolina couldn't quite come away with the win in this one, but true frosh Bentley turned in a career day in the lost cause. Both the 390 passing yards and three touchdowns represented his highest tallies of the 2016 season. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder notched a pair of touchdown tosses in the first half, but more crucially, came up with a pair of scoring drives in the fourth quarter to help the Gamecocks overcome a 29-14 halftime deficit to tie matters at 39-all with just 1:11 remaining in regulation. The fun stopped in overtime, when USF charged hard on fourth down to force Bentley into a game-ending fumble. That was South Carolina's third turnover in the red zone on the afternoon. Loss aside, the 2016 season has been a relatively impressive one for HC Will Muschamp, who inherited a seemingly lost team last winter and turned it into a bowl-eligible program in just one year.

Former Wisconsin RB Caleb Kinlaw plans on walking on at South Carolina.

Kinlaw linked up with the Badgers as a three-star recruit in the 2014 cycle. He redshirted that season and subsequently appeared in just one game during the 2015 season. The 5-foot-10, 212-pounder then opted to transfer to junior college program Pearl River Community College. Now onward to South Carolina. "I’m very excited," Kinlaw said. "I know that I have to redeem myself after starting my collegiate career off so injury-riddled." Assuming he is accepted at South Carolina, Kinlaw will enter the 2017 season with two years of eligibility remaining to his fair name.

Gardner-Webb freshman CB Jaylan Foster will transfer to South Carolina.

Foster didn't receive FBS love during the 2016 cycle, ultimately signing on with FCS squad Gardner-Webb. He proceeded to turn in a phenomenal campaign, registering 45 tackles, seven total takeaways (including five interceptions) and 14 passes defended. This stellar resume earned him Big South Freshman of the Year honors. The 6-foot, 190-pounder is expected to take a redshirt in his first season with the Gamecocks and will have three years of eligibility remaining come the start of the 2018 season.

South Carolina sophomore QB/WR Lorenzo Nunez will seek transfer to another program.

"He wants to play quarterback," head coach Will Muschamp told media members. Nunez saw game action in 2015, mainly as a runner. After an offseason injury, the staff asked him to move to receiver. Nunez obviously thinks his future is as a passer.

South Carolina freshman RB Rico Dowdle rushed for 30 yards on five carries in Saturday's blowout loss to Clemson.

Dowdle was coming off an immaculate 226-yard, two-touchdown showing against Western Carolina, but Clemson is not Western Carolina and that showed well enough on Saturday. The 5-foot-11, 211-pound freshman had been running extremely well prior to hitting the Tiger wall, rushing for a combined 520 yards and four touchdowns over his previous four games.

Pro Football Focus relays that South Carolina freshman QB Jake Bentley's 60.9% adjusted completion percentage on balls traveling 20-plus yards downfield is best among SEC gunslingers.

In five starts this season, Bentley has thrown for 989 yards with a 6/1 TD/INT ratio. All six of those touchdown passes came over the course of his first three starts of the campaign. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder will face his toughest test of the season come Saturday's showdown with Clemson.

South Carolina freshman RB Rico Dowdle piled it on in Saturday's win over Western Carolina, rushing for 226 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries.

Both of Dowdle's touchdown runs came in the first quarter. He scored from 43 yards out with 13:10 remaining in the quarter, on a play that was blocked so well that even our Rotoworld staff could probably have run through it for at least five yards before being destroyed. Dowdle, proving to be slightly faster than most writers, cruised to the end zone without being touched. He would score his second touchdown just about three minutes later, punching it in from one yard out. Saturday's opponent was obviously not up to SEC (or FBS par), but the 5-foot-11, 211-pound Dowdle has been brilliant against most comers of late while seeing an increased role. He has now rushed for at least 125 yards in three of his last four games. Sledding might be slightly more difficult next Saturday, though, as the Gamecocks finish out the regular-season campaign against Clemson.

Former South Carolina star RB Marcus Lattimore will be named Heathwood Hall High School's head coach on Monday.

Lattimore joined the staff last spring after earning his degree. Initially he planned to join South Carolina's staff, but the NCAA somehow shut that down. The previous head coach when 3-15 over the last two seasons.

South Carolina freshman QB Jake Bentley completed 22-of-28 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-21 win over Missouri.

Bentley wasn't exactly Pat Mahomes on Saturday, but he did a respectable, efficient job in helping to lead the Gamecocks to their third consecutive victory. Credit to the South Carolina coaching staff for their game plans and to the 6-foot-4, 212-pound freshman for his decision-making -- in three starts, Bentley holds a very encouraging 6/0 TD/INT ratio.

South Carolina freshman RB Rico Dowdle rushed for 149 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries in Saturday's 31-21 win over Missouri.

With regular starter A.J. Turner limited due to a potential knee injury, Dowdle stepped up to lead the Gamecocks in rushing. After Missouri tied the contest at 21-21 in the third quarter, the 5-foot-11, 211-pound true freshman punched back with a go-ahead 20-yard touchdown run later in that same quarter. Very quietly, Dowdle has racked up 363 yards rushing and three touchdowns in his last three games. And very quietly, South Carolina, itself, has now won three in a row. At 5-4 overall, Will Muschamp's crew will need to beat one of Florida, Western Carolina or Clemson to achieve bowl eligibility. That Western Carolina contest is looking like a scheduling life raft at this juncture.

South Carolina may use a redshirt on freshman WR Randrecous Davis (hamstring).

Davis made two catches against East Carolina in September and hasn't played since. South Carolina coach Will Muschamp is thinking about keeping Davis on the shelf in order to apply for a medical redshirt. "We had that discussion Sunday and we’re still working through that," Muschamp said. "He’s going to be out this week."
