You could quibble whether new South Carolina signee Brian Bowen was the No. 14 player in the Class of 2017 (put there by ESPN), or the 19th (247Sports) or the 21st (Rivals).

What seems pretty clear is he’s likely the highest-rated player to come to South Carolina since recruits started getting rated in the modern sense. 

His spot at No. 19 in the 247Composite is the best since the current recruiting services started tracking such things in the early 2000s. He’s the fifth McDonald’s All-American to sign with USC, joining P.J. Dozier (2015), Terry Dozier (1985), BJ McKie (1995) and Rolando Howell (2000).

P.J. Dozier was the No. 25 player in his class. His teammate and eventual partner leading USC to the Final Four was Sindarius Thornwell, who ranked 30th in the 2013 class.

Well, we didn’t get Zion but at least he didn’t choose that damn school in the upstate.

Didn't really expect to get him.  I was actually thinking he'd choose UK.

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina has landed some needed help at point guard with the addition of graduate transfer Tre Campbell from Georgetown.

Campbell announced his addition Tuesday on Twitter, posing in a South Carolina uniform while visiting campus.

The 6-foot-2 Campbell left the Hoyas before last season but remained on scholarship. He injured his knee in a bus accident in February 2017 when the Hoyas were traveling to Villanova. Campbell said in his post that the opportunity for a final season with the Gamecocks gave him a chance to "prove everybody wrong."

Campbell should get an immediate assist at point guard since the dismissal of expected starter Rakym Felder last month.

Campbell averaged 3.6 points in 20 games in 2016-17, his last with the Hoyas.

Not sure how much of a difference he’ll make but at this point we need all the help we can get.
