Default 2018 Football Season - Returning Players

With all the new incoming recruits that we have been discussing for the last couple of weeks for the 2018 Football Season, who do you think that is currently a "red-shirt freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior" that is going to have a big impact on our team this year and who may be flying under the radar that is going to have that coming out year this year and surprise everyone?

To me, I think that S. Blackshear on the defensive side of the ball is finally going to be the player we all think that he can be and I also think that Jacob August is going to have an outstanding year as he does have the size and great hands that are needed to be an outstanding receiver.

What say you?

I'm praying for Deebo to have a season like the one he started last year. If he can stay healthy, he could have one of the best season's ever by a WR and returner as a Gamecock.

Rico, too. He needs to stay healthy and I think he could bust out.

Kiesan Nixon showed his true potential and could be very special next year.

I am looking forward to see what coach Dillman does with the new guys, but more importantly the guys that have been in his system for a few years now should really be seeing benefits start to pay off. I know he has been whipping them into shape for a week or so at this point.

Keisean Nixon should be a starter at the Corner spot next across from Fenton. However, I could easily see him playing Safety next to Montac and Tavyn Jackson starting at Corner.

I think Shameik Blackshear is going to continue to his solid play from the end of the last season but I doubt he will be a front line starter.

Kobe Smith is going to take his game to another level this year.

I think Sherrod Greene will have a big year as well.


Offensively, its time that Bryan Edwards became a star. He is the most underrated receiver in the conference. Deebo is going to get the publicity but Edwards is our bell cow. GET HIM THE BALL.

I expect Rico Dowdle to bounce back nicely from last season.

I also think KC Crosby finishes his career with a nice season but I don't think we are going to be using as much of the Tight End this year as we have been.

Do y’all think Jake will be a complete QB next year? Or will he he continue to overthrow receivers? As good as our offense can be 75% of it is on Jake’s shoulders. Do y’all think the run blocking will improve it was poor in my opinion last year but pass blocking was pretty solid.

I think Brian Edwards has become my favorite receiver too. He has become such as good hands/possession receiver. He made SOOOO man clutch catches this past year.

The run blocking wasn't as good as it could've been, but it wasn't as bad as some have made it out to be.

Despite Helms and Knott struggling at times, there were a TON of plays where the hole was there and our RBs missed it and made the wrong cut.

I also think concerns about Jake are valid, two years in he's still streaky and inconsistent. If the game doesn't start "slowing down" for him this year then he may have peaked potential wise.

A trio of linebackers looks ready to make some noise. Greene, Bowen, and BAW. I think we might see both Brad Johnson and A Sterling contribute at multiple positions. I also think Shi Smith and Ortre Smith will provide a lot of strike ability in different ways. I think AJ Turner will continue to show how valuable he is.

Default Re: 2018 Football Season - Returning Players

I know that Bryan Edwards is a beast out there now and I hope he only gets better this upcoming season. I would love to see Deebo S - have an outstanding year, one that is injury free to help take the pressure off B. Edwards. We have depth at Tight End and I would like to see 2 or 3 of those guys step up and become another weapon for Jake Bentley.

D-Line, I really would love to see some guys have that light bulb go off for them this year and play above their projected talent level. It does happen sometimes and with the great defensive coaches we have I would love to see it happen to several of these guys in 2018. I know that Melvin Ingram was a project in the beginning and look what he turned into. It can happen if these young players want it bad enough.

Rico D become an SEC Nightmare for opposing coaches to deal with each game. I would also like to see A.J. Turner be turned loose to come out of the backfield and catch those swing passes and then turn on his jets like he is so capable of doing at times. I also hope that Tyson Williams gets a lot better as he does have the size and strength to become a much needed player to give Rico a rest for a couple of plays.

I hope our field goal kicker practices a lot this winter, spring, and throughout the summer and when the fall gets here - he is dead on the money each time!!!!

Keep your eye on this young man -> M.J. Webb. He has all the tools to be a very very good Defensive Lineman. He does need college level game time experience which I expect him to get - probably immediately. Once he settles in and gets game time experience, I expect him to be a stud.

Agreed. One of the best offer lists of anyone on our team.

Eric Douglas, Kiel Pollard and Korey Banks are three I want to keep an eye on. Douglas maybe Center or guard this coming season, had an impressive RS year according to reports. I think Pollard has shown flashes and now is the time for him to step up big. Many thought Banks projected better as CB, after full redshirt season, and need there, I am hoping he comes out and plays well.

About Blackshear.

He is listed at 6'4" and 260, but he looks heavier than that. Is he still mobile and quick enough to play DE or will he likely play inside? Or both?

S. Blackshear is a young man that I have always pulled for and coming out of high school was rated a very good player. I know he has had a series of setbacks in his time at USC, but I would love to see him have that break-out year and turn into a monster on the D-Side of the ball.

Cover2 knows a lot about him and might want to give us all an update on what has happened to him since he first got here and where he stands now. He has all the tools to be a great player, but it seems as though luck has not been his friend.

From what I gather, he still has a long way to go. Probably looking at 2019 before he does anything substantial.

I expect Kinlaw, Smith, Thomas, Blackshear, Sterling, and Ellis to primarily be the guys at the 1, 3, 5. With Webb, Enagbare, and Sandidge playing similar roles to what Sterling did last year.

It would be really nice if Aaron Thompson started to come on. He is a wide body.

He was pretty productive when he saw his snaps increase at the end of the season last year. Coaching staff still believes that he can be a contributor. It would be a big deal if he is ready to challenge for the vacant spot left by Sawyer. The battle between him and Aaron Sterling this Spring is going to be interesting.
