South Carolina football had a big Signing Day last February when 5-star athlete Nyckoles Harbor signed with the Gamecocks after a late push from Oregon and some pressure from hometown Maryland. The Washington DC native became the first consensus 5-star prospect from out-of-state to sign with USC in the modern recruiting era.

Needless to say, expectations for the freshman are high. At 6’5″ and 241 pounds, Harbor is a 1-of-1 type prospect. After spending most of his high school career as a pass rusher, he transitioned to a wide receiver role and plans to catch passes in college, as well.
