Whitfield to transfer
Freshman offensive lineman Darius Whitfield has been granted his release from South Carolina and will transfer to another program, GamecockCentral.com has learned.
The Mobile (Alabama) St. Paul's product, a member of the 2016 recruiting class, was notable for having committed to the Gamecocks on the day of Steve Spurrier's resignation press conference.
He was ranked by Rivals.com as a four-star prospect, having earned all-state honors on the offensive line as a senior in high school.
Whitfield, who moved over from defensive line to the offensive line during preseason practice, took a redshirt this season with the Gamecocks.
