South Carolina 2011 Season Profile
Posted Aug 2, 2011

A quick look at the South Carolina Gamecocks' upcoming season.


Last season's record: 9-5

Returning starters/letterwinners: 13/46

Key losses: DE Cliff Matthews, WR Tori Gurley, PK/P Spencer Lanning

Key returnees: RB Marcus Lattimore, WR Alshon Jeffery, DE Devin Taylor

Best game: 9/10/11, at Georgia

Projected finish: 11-3

Outlook: South Carolina returns arguably the best offensive trio in the conference in All-Americans running back Marcus Lattimore and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, and quarterback Stephen Garcia. The defense will be anchored by All-SEC standouts defensive end Devin Taylor and cornerback Stephon Gilmore as the nation's consensus No. 1 prospect in the 2012 class Jadeveon Clowney joins the fold. The Gamecocks should be more talented and more experienced than a season ago when they won the school's first SEC East title.
