It's more that there just hasn't been much talent in the state the past 2 years.
This year, SC only offered 6 or 7 in state guys. Of the top 5 guys, 2 are committed to SC, 1 to Clemson, 2 out of state (Ohio St and UGA). Last year was similar. Carolina only offered a handful of instate guys and did well recruiting those few guys.
Thanks for the info. I was too lazy to look up the numbers. I don't keep up with SC recruiting much. I just know some bad mama jammas come out of Rock Hill (JC7 and CP84).
