Prep Notebook: Former T&D Region star Golson still wants to be a Gamecock

2012-05-04T00:00:00Z 2013-02-21T20:45:00Z Prep Notebook: Former T&D Region star Golson still wants to be a GamecockBy BRIAN LINDER, T&D Sports Editor The Times and Democrat

Brandon Golson was a terror on defense during the 2009 season at Calhoun County High School.

During his senior season that year, the then 6-2, 205-pounder recorded 113 tackles and 30 sacks. In just 20 games as a prep player, he managed 48 sacks.

No surprise then, South Carolina offered him a scholarship that he quickly accepted. Golson has yet to play a down for the Gamecocks however. In fact, he is yet to step foot on campus as a student.

Instead he has embarked on a journey that led him to Fork Union Prep in Virginia, to Louisville, where he recorded 18 hours of credits before being ruled ineligible, to Georgia Military where he is today.

Golson has bulked up along the way, reportedly weighing in at 230 pounds now, and he has remained on the Gamecocks radar.

According to reports, South Carolina has offered the former Saint star again and he is also drawing interest from Kansas, Tennessee and Middle Tennessee State.

“He wants to come (to South Carolina),” Wilson said.

Per Wilson, Golson will still have three years to play two.

B-E stars pick up offers

While much of the attention at Bamberg-Ehrhardt has been paid to Red Raider Kevin Crosby Jr. this offseason, a pair of his teammates are starting to gain traction in recruiting.

According to B-E assistant coach Corey Crosby Red Raiders tailback Demetrius Odom currently has verbal offers from Wake Forest, West Virginia, Alabama State, Youngstown State, Miami of Ohio, South Carolina State and Western Carolina. Defensive back Nick Halmon, an Elite 11 selection last year, has offers from Youngstown State, Alabama State and Western Carolina.
