USC awaits signed letter of intent from Jordan Burch

COLUMBIA, S.C. — After months of waiting, the Gamecocks have to wait some more.

USC’s prized commit, five-star defensive lineman Jordan Burch out of Hammond School, still has not signed his National Letter of Intent, meaning the Gamecocks can’t technically call him a signee, nor can Will Muschamp talk about him.

Huntley committed to the Gamecocks back in June, while Burch committed in mid-December. They waited until the February signing period so they could sign with all of their classmates.

Huntley sent in his paperwork, making it official with USC.

Those classmates include Fabian Goodman and Bradley Dunn, who will both walk-on with the Gamecocks in 2020. Quarterback Jackson Muschamp is staying in the SEC and heading to his father Will’s alma mater at the University of Georgia.

Should Burch sign, Huntley and Burch would headline a stellar recruiting class for South Carolina, which pulled in four of the top five players in the Palmetto State, and eight of the top 11. 247 Sports ranks the Gamecocks 2020 class 18th in the nation.
