South Carolina just picked up another massive piece for the offensive line in Jatavius Shivers. Shivers will enter his senior season standing at 6 feet 7 inches and weighing 288 pounds. The Gamecocks are recruiting the state of Georgia heavily and Shivers will be the 5th player in the 2023 class out of the Peach state, hailing from Villa Rica, Georgia. This is not a bad strategy, seeing as the state of Georgia now has the 4th most players in the NFL by state, trailing only Florida, Texas, and California.

Shivers decommitted from Vanderbilt after attending the cookout at Carolina during the most recent major recruiting weekend. Carolina fans may roll their eyes at picking up a former Vandy commit, but Shivers also had major offers from Florida State, Mississippi State, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Ole Miss, Michigan, and Auburn. He has been a target of coach Adkins for some time and soon Carolina fans will see why.
