Adhel Tac Enrolls Early at South Carolina
COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina head women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley announced that Adhel Tac (Grand Prairie, Texas/South Grand Prairie) has elected to enroll at the University for the Spring 2024 semester to begin her Gamecock career. One of three five-star prospects from the Class of 2024 to sign with the Gamecocks, she arrived in Columbia Wednesday evening ahead of classes beginning on Mon., Jan. 8.
Rated among the top five post players in the country, Tac is ranked No. 26 overall in the 2024 Class, according to ESPN – a number that was as high as No. 12 before she sat out the 2022-23 high school season with an injury. Tac returned to the court over the summer and was set to help her high school team make a run at a state title before suffering another injury. In her first varsity season as a sophomore in 2021-22, she poured in 14.1 points and 8.8 rebounds per game to help lead South Grand Prairie to a Class 6A state runner-up finish.
No. 1/1 South Carolina is back in action Thursday at 7 p.m. ET in its SEC opener at Florida. The Gamecocks will be back at Colonial Life Arena on Sun., Jan. 7, hosting Mississippi State in a 1 p.m. tipoff on ESPNU.
