Corbin and Hall join the Gamecocks

South Carolina added a pair of recruits to their roster in the early signing period.

 

Harrison Corbin and his family celebrate his signing to play golf at South Carolina.

The Gamecocks have signed Boiling Springs golfer Harrison Corbin and the Tennessee state champion Ryan Hall from Knoxville.

Both golfers made early commitments to USC and signed their National Letters of Intent as expected to come to Columbia next year.

“This is exciting,” said Corbin. “I have got some pretty high expectations and it is going to be fun to see if I can fulfill them,” he said,

Corbin brings a solid and consistent record as a junior golfer to the Gamecock program. You usually don’t have to look to far down the leader board to see his name.

During the last year Corbin has a handful of top-10 finishes. He earned a third place finish at The Joe Cheves Junior and sixth place finishes in the Bobby Chapman Junior and the Southern Cross.

Corbin won The Blade Junior in 2016 and has been on four straight South Carolina High School championship teams at Boiling Springs.

The top finish on his golf resume is a win in the 2016 Blade Junior. Corbin topped one of the strongest fields in South Carolina Junior golf to claim his biggest victory.

“That was a lot of fun. I had a really good back nine and that got me the victory,” he recalled.

Corbin committed to USC shortly after the win and is looking forward to improving as a golfer and the education he can receive at South Carolina.

“I want to get a business degree and they have a really great program for that and the coaches are really good. I love the coaches,” concluded the new Gamecock golfer.

Ryan Hall of Knoxville brings the Tennessee High School championship with him to Columbia as a new Gamecock golfer.

Hall comes to USC from Knoxville Halls High School. He has helped his high school team win a pair of state titles in Tennessee. His team claimed the title by 26 shots.

The talented golfer from Tennessee committed to South Carolina even earlier than Corbin. He decided to become a Gamecock after his sophomore year in high school.

The new Gamecock golfer said the coaches and the new practice facility at USC turned out to be the biggest factors in his decision to come to Columbia.

The Gamecocks will graduate two seniors this year and both golfers expect to challenge for playing time in the fall season.
