Best of the Available Players in South Carolina 2020 Class

A small portion of South Carolina's class of 2020 is starting to find homes at the college level.  With only five players committed there are still a number of players who are on the board.

Some are closer than others to ending their respective recruitments. Some are looking to wait until the spring to pick a school. In this piece we go through the best player at each position who is still on the board from South Carolina.
