No. 9 South Carolina turns to youth in secondary
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Steve Spurrier has said several times that No. 9 South Carolina has plenty of good players, just no one knows it yet.
The Gamecocks coach better hope that's especially true in the secondary where the club enters the season without last year's lockdown standouts Victor Hampton and Jimmy Legree — and will lean heavily on freshmen Chris Lammons, Wesley Green and Al Harris Jr. to rotate into the mix this fall.
With about a week before the Gamecocks open at home against No. 21 Texas A&M, Harris looks close to earning a starting spot opposite senior Brison Williams, moved from safety a year ago.
Harris says the young players have picked things up quickly and are ready to have an immediate impact for South Carolina.
