News out of the South Carolina football camp is that wide out Lamar Scruggs and running back Eric Baker are leaving the program.

Now where is the only question and according to Mr. Scruggs it will not be App. State as Coach Steve Spurrier had mentioned -

With regards to Scruggs, I hate to see him depart as he has loads of potential and I really thought this was his year after being buried behind Alshon Jeffery on the depth chart.

Yet it seems the numbers game caught up with him due to USC needing to reduce their scholly load to make the 85 limit prior to the start of fall ball. Scruggs was not alone, if you recall backup quarterback Andrew Clifford is also on the outs.

Eric Baker is another one that we had hopes for, this was pre-Lattimore of course. He too has potential but with Marcus Lattimore, Brandon Wilds, Kenny Milles, Shon Carson, Kendric Salley and Mike Davis. Well, you see the point.

Here is our favorite Eric Baker memory -

Good luck to both and we hope they find homes soon to display their talents.
