There was a bit of recruiting drama around Elite 11 quarterback Brandon McIlwain after the sudden retirement of Steve Spurrier, but new head coach Will Muschamp was able to seal the deal, and the four-star passer is now on campus. On Monday, McIlwain posted a picture of his new South Carolina student ID. He seems pretty excited to be in Columbia.
According to his father, McIlwain will be wearing No. 44 for the Gamecocks baseball team, though earlier this week Brandon said that football will take priority this spring.
