South Carolina’s quarterback race is getting more crowded.
Highly-touted signal caller Jake Bentley, a junior in high school, will reclassify and enroll at South Carolina this summer. He announced the decision to his high school teammates Wednesday morning before making the announcement public on Twitter later in the morning.
Bentley has completed the required class work and received approval to begin playing for the Gamecocks this fall.
“It’s been a long process getting approval from the SEC and the NCAA and South Carolina. It’s been kind of a long deal, but we got confirmation about a week ago, and everything’s good,” Bentley told The State. “In South Carolina I took a lot of high school courses in middle school so I was able to acquire a lot more course credits than the normal student.”
