With South Carolina and Georgia bordering each other, the SEC rivals have clashed often on the recruiting trail. Over the last decade, Georgia has signed nine players out of the Palmetto State, stealing super sleeper and future NFL standout Tim Jennings with a late offer and one of the best to ever play in All-American A.J. Green. The Bulldogs have two South Carolina natives on the roster this year in defensive tackle Kwame Geathers and outside linebacker Dexter Morant.

On the flip side, the Gamecocks have thrived on the depth of talent in Georgia. Over 50 prospects from the Peach State have signed with South Carolina over the last decade, including a steal of their own in defensive end Eric Norwood, who left as the All-Time sack leader at South Carolina, and tight end Jared Cook, now with the Tennessee Titans. Twenty-four players from Georgia are on scholarship for South Carolina this year.
