Better ball handler than anyone currently on our team. Very physical and extremely quick.. Tough as hell him and frank will bump heads but the kid will get it done on the court. I recall him as a freshman at Indian land high school in a playoff game scoring 42 pts on Keenan during Marcus Stroman senior year. Competitive like carerra and thrives off competition. Doesn't back down and always feels he's better than his opponent. Will play next year.

He's a tough city kid who also has ties to our state and WANTS to be a Gamecock. It means a lot to fans that a player wants to be here.

I think this is the one thing Dawn has more of than Frank right now in her players, but the guys have evolved and gained more confidence this past year.

Don't forget it's a highlight video. By multiple accounts, he needs to improve his shot from 3.

Article on Gueye's signing stated that Felder was taking the SAT on May 7.

Will take the SAT next week.

Assuming he qualifies, we will play 2 PGS at times -Stroman, Felder, and Gravett are all available plus our transfer for the following year. This also means that Dozier is a full-time shooting guard now.

Felder must have passed his test because he signed an LOI.

"Former Indian Land star Rakym Felder officially signed with South Carolina’s men’s basketball team over the weekend.

The 6-foot guard, who played at New York powerhouse Lincoln High School after moving north following his freshman year, tweeted out photos of him signing his letter of intent. Coach Frank Martin tweeted out congratulation to the guard, who committed in may."

He has not passed -in fact, he has not taken the test yet. You can sign a Letter of Intent without qualifying, although most schools wait for some indication that the student will be eligible before extending the LOI.

In Felder's case, he took a prep test and might have done well enough on that to indicate that he would be fine with the actual test. Also, remember that the needed SAT/ACT score varies based on grades - if his grades are decent, he is likelier to do well enough on the SAT to qualify.

Interesting that Frank would want to him to sign an LOI now without the test score when he could have just waited till next week. I understand the sliding scale of test scores and grades.

I don't think the score comes back in a week, might take a months or so.

This locks Felder up - he cannot go anywhere else once he signs his LOI. Felder's stock would have risen after he qualified. If Frank had passed on some kids (like the PG from Tennessee that just de-committed from UNLV) and then Felder had signed elsewhere after he qualified, then we would have been screwed.

This way we are "All in" with Felder and vice versa.

these are good points, but he still needs the test score.

I know the football recruits sign an LOI in February but some don't qualify which we don't find out till 3-4 months later.
