Jordan Burch

The Jordan Burch saga has ended. South Carolina is announcing that the highly-coveted five-star defensive end has officially signed with the Gamecocks for their 2020 class.

Burch is not only an outstanding end but he is athletic enough to play point on the basketball team after seeing action on the offensive side of the ball during the fall.
