The transfer portal cycle has slowed down tremendously (unless you are a fan of a school with a recent coaching change like Alabama, Washington, or Michigan), but there is still a steady trickle of news that comes to light when a player already in the portal picks his new school. This week, a name relevant to the South Carolina football program came across the wire.

Former Gamecock defensive back Dominick Hill has committed to the Liberty Flames out of the transfer portal.

Hill, who left the South Carolina football team to transfer to Temple after the 2021 football season, entered the transfer portal (from Temple) just three weeks ago but found his new home relatively quickly.

Liberty finished the 2023 regular season undefeated and then won the Conference-USA Championship Game before getting smacked by the Oregon Ducks in the Fiesta Bowl to finish the season 13-1. The Flames are losing starter Kobe Singleton at cornerback, and Hill is a candidate to fill that spot as a player with a lot of experience. A class of 2019 high school prospect, Hill has one more year of eligibility after utilizing a traditional redshirt and the "Covid redshirt" in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Hill didn't play much during his South Carolina football career, but he was also behind future NFL players Jaycee Horn, Israel Mukuamu, Cam Smith, Darius Rush, and Jammie Robinson, future All-American Jaylan Foster, and 2024 NFL Draft hopefuls Johnny Dixon, Jr. and Shilo Sanders.

Once he got to Temple, Dominick Hill earned a starting job and led the Owls in tackles in 2023 from the cornerback spot. With Liberty, he will compete for a starting position, as well.

Rashad Amos, another former Gamecock who left the program via the transfer portal, is viewed as the 2nd-best player available in the portal after a big season running the ball for the Miami (OH) Redhawks.
