HOOVER, AL - As former South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier says SEC Media Days is "Talkin' Season". A lot of coaches, players and media members are talking about what teams have. One analyst says USC has a player that reminds him of number 88 in Dallas.
USC has a stud playmaker in Deebo Samuel. He led the Gamecocks in receptions, receiving yards last season and scored six rushing touchdowns.
SEC Network analyst Marcus Spears got to know Deebo, the USC wideout, during their recent one on one interview. Spears loves what Samuel brings to the offense and he says Samuel reminds him of a star player in Dallas.
"I love Deebo. I love the way he plays. I played with a guy in Dallas who plays similar to him. Not the same body style but Dez Bryant. They play receiver like linebackers and that's what you have to have and he has a dog mentality. He could've lined up with me any day," Spears said.
Spears also observed how Deebo carries himself.
"I like his demeanor. You can tell he's a fighter and he wants to be good as he can possibly be," Spears said.
Hopefully Gamecock fans will see Deebo make a lot of Dez Bryant kind of plays this season.
