Ladies and Gentlemen… presenting The Final Cockdown’s defensive line week! A position group much maligned since Jadeveon Clowney’s departure in 2013, we’re going to take a deep dive on the front four looking to lead a resurgence for the Gamecock pass rush. Here’s a preview of what’s to come the next week or so:
Dante Sawyer | DJ Wonnum | Daniel Fennell | Taylor Stallworth | Keir Thomas | Ulric Jones | Javon Kinlaw | Kobe Smith | Shameik Blackshear | Aaron Sterling | Brad Johnson | Aaron Thompson
#5 Keir Thomas
Sophomore / 6’2” / 262 / Miami, FL / Miami Central
Going in to his sophomore year, Keir Thomas had to change positions from DE to DT to add some much needed depth to the position. Last year, Keir saw a pretty good amount of playing time after early enrolling in 2016, playing in every game and making two starts.
