South Carolina lost three of its most productive players off a good defensive line last season in Javon Kinlaw, Kobe Smith and D.J. Wonnum but the coaching staff and players don’t seem worried, at least publicly.

Jordan Burch obviously headlined the defensive line group in the 2020 class but the Gamecocks’ group is deep with potential impact guys like Alex Huntley, a four-star, and three-star prospects like Tonka Hemingway and Makius Scott. The Gamecocks are doing a good job building the depth on the defensive line and have a few guys they’re hoping can make an impact.

The best part for South Carolina is the Gamecocks get to add those freshmen to a group of already experienced defensive linemen like Sterling, JJ Enagbare, Keir Thomas, Brad Johnson, Zacch Pickens, Jabari Ellis and Rick Sandidge.
