COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Graduate transfer Collin Hill will get the start at quarterback when South Carolina opens up against No. 15 Tennessee on Sept. 26.
Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp announced the decision on Thursday.
Hill arrived at South Carolina from Colorado State and beat out last year’s freshman starter Ryan Hilinski.
Hill played for ex-Colorado State coach Mike Bobo, who is now South Carolina’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Muschamp says the team is capable of succeeding with both Hill and Hilinski behind center.
The coach says Hill had an edge at knowing Bobo’s schemes and terminology during camp.
