Gamecocks keeping QB competition open with Doty out
The Gamecocks aren’t in a rush to name a starter in place of the injured Luke Doty.
During a press conference Saturday, first-year South Carolina head coach Shane Beamer told the media it’s an open competition between Jason Brown, Colten Gauthier and Connor Jordan while starting quarterback Luke Doty recovers from a foot sprain.
“We’re about competition… we play in three weeks, and there’s a whole lot to map between now and September 4,” Beamer said.
Brown is taking most of the first-team reps in practice, followed by Gauthier and Jordan.
Doty sprained his foot when he was accidentally stepped on by another teammate during Friday’s practice.
