Gamecocks get several notable names on signing day

COLUMBIA (WACH) -- National Signing Day has officially arrived and the University of South Carolina looks to improve upon their SEC East Championship from last season with another solid recruiting class.

The Gamecock's number one target Jadeveon Clowney, the defensive end out of South Pointe High School in Rock Hill, has decided to hold out on his decision until his birthday on February 14. Clowney is rated the top recruit in the nation.

As they await Clowney TMs decision, the Gamecocks have already received letters of intent from a number of players. A few notables include Phillip Dukes, a defensive tackle from Manning High School.
