COLUMBIA, SC. — After missing out on another graduate transfer guard, who committed to a fellow SEC school, head coach Frank Martin and the South Carolina Gamecocks completed their 2017-18 roster on Wednesday by adding another talented piece to the back court.

The Gamecocks were recruiting Randy Onwuasor, who transferred from the Southern Utah Thunderbirds after averaging 23.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per contest. After Onwuasor committed to Will Wade and the LSU Tigers, Martin turned his attention to another graduate transfer guard.

Enter Wesley Myers, who led the Maine Black Bears in scoring in his first season with the program. After some off-court issues which resulted in Myers being kicked off the team at Maine, he was searching for a new home for his final year of eligibility.

Here are five players who are flying under the radar, with a few extras at the end to keep an eye on as the offseason moves along. Continue reading Five uncommitted transfers who are flying under the radar
