HOOVER, ALA. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says quarterback Stephen Garcia will “in all likelihood” rejoin the team for preseason camp.

Will he start? Maybe not.

Spurrier said Wednesday at Southeastern Conference media days that Garcia has done everything he’s been asked to do since he was suspended for the fifth time in the spring.

But the coach says Garcia will have to compete with sophomore Connor Shaw to keep his starting job.

He says he has probably the most talented roster of his seven-year tenure. Spurrier says he thinks running back Marcus Lattimore and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery are the nation’s best at their position.

He also said the nation’s top recruit, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, will be on the field “early and often.”
