Half Cocked Podcast #142: March 23, 2014

The Feathered Warrior returns to the Half Cocked podcast to help me break down the week that was in Gamecock athletics.

Arden Key appears to have set an announcement date


It's recruiting, so the usual admonitions about taking things for what they're worth and with grains of salt apply -- especially where it concerns the mercurial Arden Key -- but it appears as though the four-star defensive end has set a date to announce his commitment. Key recently published an in-order top five in which the Gamecocks were listed last, but he continues to trend in South Carolina's direction on the 247Sports Crystal Ball

Houston transfer Danuel House still considering South Carolina


Sports Illustrated is excited about Mike Davis


"Jadeveon Clowney was South Carolina’s undisputed headliner the past few seasons. He was the subject of draft hype, expectations and virtually incessant scrutiny. His presence may have also overshadowed the fact that the Gamecocks have a budding superstar in the backfield. Davis finished 2013 with 1,183 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, including a 167-yard, three-score showing in a win over UCF in September. Following the departures of Connor Shaw and Bruce Ellington, he’ll be expected to shoulder the load for Steve Spurrier’s offense." - Sports Illustrated Campus Union

Four-star wide receiver Jalen Christian plans to commit on Thursday


Christian has been considered a heavy Gamecock lean ever since he released a top 11 in March that excluded Virginia Tech. The Hokies were the presumed favorite to land the services of the Damascus, Md. native until that point.

South Carlolina, Missouri football lead the SEC in APR


South Carolina and Missouri led all SEC football programs in academic progress rate (APR) during the 2012-2013 academic year, according to data released on Wednesday. What is APR, exactly? In addition to being a not-that-great way of measuring academic success, it's the NCAA's metric for determining whether or not schools are putting the "student" in student-athlete. (I feel like I need to take a shower after typing that.)

Three-star tight end commits to South Carolina

South Carolina picks up its eighth commitment of the 2015 class.

Bruce Ellington gets the call from San Francisco


Bruce Ellington was not wearing a shirt when he got the call that the 49ers had drafted him because of course he wasn't.

Gamecock players react to Bruce getting drafted

Bruce Ellington's former teammates and coaches were excited when San Francisco made him the 106th pick in the NFL Draft and logged on to Twitter to express as much.

Jimmy Fallon interviews Jadeveon Clowney on The Tonight Show


"Are you a millionaire right now?" 'Nah, not yet. I'm still broke."

Lorenzo Nunez committing on Thursday


South Carolina and N.C. State are thought to be the frontrunners here for the four-star quarterback out of Kennesaw (Ga.) Harrison. He's the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback and the 219th-best overall prospect in the 2015 class according to the 247Sports Composite Index.

Preview of Clowney's appearance on The Tonight Show


In case the secret to this bit of Hollywood magic has somehow escaped you, The Tonight Show is not actually filmed live at 11:35 p.m. every weeknight. (How do you think they're able to show commercials ahead of time, ya dumb-dumb?) Jimmy Fallon's team has released a preview of tonight's show (recorded Wednesday afternoon), and it certainly appears as though he races Jadeveon Clowney through a hallway. So this should be fun.

Rece Davis: Clowney is the clear-cut No. 1 pick

Houston still has a while to submit (or trade) the No. 1 overall selection in the NFL Draft. But if ESPN's Rece Davis was running the Texans, he would have already made up his mind and initiated contract negotiations.
