New South Carolina Recruiting Pitches

By Rixon Lane

It's no secret that the Gamecocks have had some issues on the recruiting trails in recent weeks. 

With several prominent recruits decommiting since the end of the season, it might be time to rethink South Carolina's recruiting strategy. 

On that note, here are some ideas for pitches that may entice recruits to come to Columbia.


"Come and have Steve Spurrier watch you at every practice!"

Either in the flesh or in the form of an 80-foot banner. 


"Come play for SEC coaches!"

Because, technically, no matter who's here when you arrive, they will all be SEC coaches. 


"Come compete in the toughest conference in college football!"

We never said anything about the toughest division. 


"Come be a part of the school that nearly landed Will Muschamp!"

More importantly, you'll only have to play him and Malzahn once every few years.


"Come start a new streak against Clemson!"

Seriously, how many chances will you get to play against Dabo Swinney?
