The two qualifiers could play an important part in this upcoming season.
Hampton was signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, and Legree signed with the Arizona Cardinals in May.
Sidney Rhodes: A fifth year defensive back and former walk-on, the Easley, S.C.-native was used primarily on special teams and saw action in 13 games last season.
Jamari Smith: A Jacksonville, Fla.-native, Smith is a versatile player who began his career at Carolina as a tailback. Last fall, he moved from running back to cornerback a week into fall camp, and then moved once again to running back during the week before the Tennessee game. He’s now been moved to cornerback, since the spring. Needlesstosay, it looks like he’s got it all covered.
Rico Williams: A RS sophomore corner, this Hampton, Ga.-native is listed as a starter this fall and has continued to remain healthy after a knee injury before the 2012 season. 5-foot-11, 184 pound Williams played in nine games last season and even made a start in the Capital One Bowl against Wisconsin.
Ali Groves: A RS freshman, this Stone Mountain, Ga.-native is looking to contribute this fall and was recovering from a shoulder injury this past spring.
