Will Muschamp must be "feeling cocky" at this point.

South Carolina's new head coach knows the recruiting efforts within the program have to dramatically improve. His first order of business: solidify the commitment of quarterback prospect Brandon McIlwain.

The Pennsylvania native is arguably South Carolina's most significant pledge for the 2016 class. Not only is he a fantastic athlete, but McIlwain plays at a considerable position of need.

It makes sense for Muschamp and his staff to pay him a visit -- especially with Penn State and Cal sniffing around.
