Gamecock Basketball Anthony Gill and Damontre Harris Reportedly Request Release From USC

The South Carolina Mens Basketball team will be loosing two valuable players as they have requested permission to part ways with the University of South Carolina. Anthony Gill and Damontre Harris have reportedly requested to transfer from South Carolina and continue their basketball careers elsewhere.

Anthony Gill Highlights as a South Carolina Gamecock

Anthony Gill was a big time recruit for us and if he had stayed would could have possibly become one of the Gamecock basketball greats. Gill started in 26 games during his freshman campaign and played in all 31. Above is a video of one of his most memorable dunks as a Gamecock.

Following the dismissal of head coach Darrin Horn, Anthony Gill was given the option to transfer from South Carolina. The transfer rule allows for any player who was recruited by a head coach to transfer if the coach is fired or resigns. This rule prevents a player being forced to play for a coach they do not want to play for.

Anthony Gill has interest in transferring to the University of Virginia while Harris has his sights set on becoming a Florida Gator down in Gainesville. Although Gamecock Nation would love to have them remain a part of the team, we wish them the best of luck as they continue their careers.

With these moves, most would assume each player thinks they can play basketball professionally. If they do reach the next level, they will want to invest their money wisely. Most NBA and professional basketball players do not. Our suggestion is to contact Harry I Martin, Jr. Heck, he even has experience producing movies so it would be a great contact for them.
