Jazston Turnetine

Turnetine looks poised to be the starting left tackle on the South Carolina offensive line. The Georgia native enrolled early and made a huge impact on the coaching staff in the spring. He’ll need to fend off second-year player Jakai Moore over these next few weeks of fall camp.

At 6-foot-7, 330 pounds, Turnetine is a massive human being, and the largest player on the Gamecock roster. He garnered JUCO All-America honors last season at Hutchinson Community College, and is line for a ton of action. His ability to take the reins at tackle will allow Sadarius Hutcherson to slide back inside to his more natural position of guard.

Jalen Brooks

Brooks joined the Gamecock roster just this month, and hopes to be immediately eligible for the 2020 season. If that proves to be the case, he’ll bring experienced depth to a cluttered but unproven wide receiver rotation.

Brooks played two seasons at Wingate University, earning all-conference honors as a sophomore. He tallied 35 receptions for 751 yards that year, good for an average of 21.5 yards per catch. He also scored six touchdowns. If his eligibility request is approved by the NCAA, he could factor into a receiver group in desperate need of playmakers.
