South Carolina wide receiver Randrecous Davis will miss the remainder of spring practice after undergoing sports hernia surgery, coach Will Muschamp told reporters Saturday.

“I’m disappointed for him,” Muschamp said. “He’s going to be a really good football player for us. He’s got some soft tissue we’re working through.”

Davis, a redshirt freshman, played in two games last season, then ultimately redshirted after missing the rest of the season with a hamstring injury. He finished the season with three catches for 45 yards.

Though just a three-star recruit in the 2016 recruiting cycle, Davis, from Atlanta (Ga.) Mays, had a plethora of offers, including several from some of the nation’s top programs.

Davis joins Bryan Edwards (sports hernia) and OrTre Smith (ankle) as Gamecocks wide receivers injured. Both players have been limited in practices this spring.

Redshirt sophomore running back A.J. Turner may also be out for the spring because of a hamstring injury that has held him out for the entire spring thus far. He rushed for 497 yards and three touchdowns on 116 carries last season.

South Carolina’s practice Saturday, which was a scrimmage, was its eighth this spring. Teams are allowed 15 spring practices.

The Gamecocks, who began practice on Feb. 25, will hold their final practice, the spring game, on April 1.
