On the same day that quarterback Spencer Rattler announced he was headed to the NFL Draft, it seems two other Gamecocks’ quarterbacks are on their way out of Columbia.
According to a report Wednesday by The Big Spur, redshirt freshman Tanner Bailey and redshirt sophomore Colten Gauthier are expected to enter the transfer portal.
Both came into the program as four-star prospects but neither found an on-field role at South Carolina. Bailey never saw action in a game and Gauthier threw just two passes in three seasons in Columbia.
With Rattler, Bailey and Gauthier gone, South Carolina’s quarterback room currently has just two scholarship bodies: Luke Doty (who played receiver in 2023) and LaNorris Sellers, the 6-foot-3, 245-pound freshman who had a few dazzling plays this season.
The Gamecocks are expected to sign quarterback commit Dante Reno in a few weeks, which would help bolster their depth. But coach Shane Beamer could also add an experienced guy through the transfer portal, too.
