The last weekend of summer recruiting momentum continued today when 2023 EDGE Monteque Rhames announced intentions to stay home and play his college ball with South Carolina. Rhames, who is from Sumter, SC, has long been considered a favorite to land with the Gamecocks, who he included on his top 8 with Virginia Tech, NC State, FSU, Coastal Carolina, Michigan, UCF, and Georgia, but some thought the late addition of an Alabama offer on June 3rd might sway the 6’6″ 240 lb EDGE rusher to consider playing for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide, despite the late offer.

Rhames becomes the highest-rated member of the 2023 class thus far, rated as a 5.8 Four-Star by Rivals, and the #3 ranked prospect in the state of South Carolina.
