Lorenzo Nunez not cleared for spring game


South Carolina quarterback Lorenzo Nunez has not been cleared to participate in today’s spring game due to still dealing with a knee injury, according to a tweet from David Caraviello of The Post & Courier.

Nunez hyperextended his knee in practice late last month and new Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp initially said that the former three-star recruit would miss roughly a week. That won’t be the case and rightfully so, as Nunez is a dual threat quarterback who needs his legs to be at 100 percent. No word has been given on which of South Carolina’s many quarterbacks will play in the spring game.

The good news is that Nunez’s injury on the whole is not a serious one and should have him back in plenty of time for the season, not to mention the fact that he should be at full health in time for the season and competing for the starter’s job in the summer. In eight games last year, Nunez completed 61.5 percent of his passes for 376 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 375 yards and a pair of scores.
