... Junior offensive tackle Mason Zandi 6-foot-9, 313 pounds entered spring practice with a lot of momentum. Zandi had a good offseason and was listed as the No. 1 left tackle on the pre-spring depth chart. Rather than taking advantage of that positive energy, Zandi has had to watch the past eight practices from the sideline because of a hamstring injury he suffered in the first practice of spring. It probably wont make a difference in the fall for a veteran such as Zandi, but youd rather see those guys on the field than not.
... The first fight of South Carolinas open spring practices came and went quickly Tuesday as offensive lineman Malik Young and defensive end David Johnson exchanged a few quick punches before the 323-pound Young toppled on top of Johnson. The players quickly separated. College football coaches typically tsk-tsk publicly over practice fights but worry if they dont see some, especially during spring practices, where the practices are typically more physical.
... In previous open workouts, it has seemed like every former Gamecock in town has come out to practice, mostly the players who decided to transfer after the 2014 season. Tuesday looked like a good opportunity for more crowded sidelines with 17 former South Carolina players expected at Pro Day on Wednesday, but it was surprisingly quiet. J.T. Surratt was the only one of the Pro Day participants spotted during the afternoon workout. (Kelcy Quarles was on hand as well.)
