Things have been upbeat at South Carolina, as the Gamecocks work through their first week of practice. The team is the pre-season favorite to repeat as SEC East champions.
And, with Stephen Garcia back at quarterback, it's a possibility. He's aided by the return of Alshon Jeffrey and Marcus Lattimore, arguably the best wide receiver and running back in the league.
The highlight of practice so far has been freshman defensive end Jadaveon Clowney. Clowney has been one of the most impressive players at practice during the first week.
