Preseason magazine rankings: Defense
Today we continue our look at what the five leading preseason college football magazines have to say about the Gamecocks, focusing specifically on the defensive side of the ball.
Since not every publication does things the same way, we'll focus on taking each one by turn and looking at how they rank the 2014 South Carolina defense both as a unit and individually, adding their comments when comments are made.
With the defense having lost the biggest national star it's ever had in Jadeveon Clowney and another All-American in Kelcy Quarles, it's safe to characterize the national outlook on USC's defense as one whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
