Two South Carolina quarterbacks to enter transfer portal, report says

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.
