Gamecocks Recruiting Nuggets // 04.13.11

Gamecocks recruiting continues and the efforts landed a recent linebacker for the football team but there are many others to try and get to drink the “garnet kool-aid,” let’s review some activity in the Gamecocks basketball world.

Along with the names of Hickey, Colvin, and Ware. There is another name floating around the Gamecocks basketball recruiting circuit – point guard Eli Carter of Brewster Academy out of New Hampshire. He is rated a three star recruit by Rivals and was going to be a St. Bona player but went away from that choice and is now back on the open market.  Rated as the 22nd best PG and in the top 110 players….well, USC could do no wrong in landing him.

USC has contacted his coach and expressed interest yet no formal movement yet. Carter, 6’2″, averaged 15 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds per game.

Here is a video of him in action –
