The South Carolina Gamecocks will host one of the top defensive linemen in the 2024 recruiting class. Four-star recruit Kamarion Franklin will visit the Gamecocks on March 17th, according to SBLive’s Andrew Nemec.
It will be part of an extensive spring visit schedule, per Nemec. Franklin is also expected to take visits to Florida State, Auburn, Miami, Texas A&M, Ohio State, and Oregon.
Scouting College ranks Franklin as the 27th overall recruit and 6th overall defensive lineman in the 2024 class. In addition, he is rated as the top recruit in Mississippi.
Franklin attends Lake Cormorant High School in Lake Cormorant, MS. He is coming off a monster junior season, in which he posted 73 total tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 17 sacks, and 41 quarterback hurries.
Franklin would be another massive addition for the Gamecocks, who have already assembled one of the most talented 2024 recruiting classes in the nation. 247Sports Composite ranks the Gamecocks’ 2024 class as the seventh-best in the country.
