Shane Beamer said Wednesday morning that South Carolina running back ZaQuandre White could still play for his team in the upcoming bowl game against North Carolina.
Beamer’s statement came less than 24 hours after White announced Tuesday evening on Instagram that he will move on from the Gamecocks immediately “to begin focusing on professional football.”
White became one of the Gamecocks top weapons this season with 583 yards rushing on 88 carries and two touchdowns, averaging 6.6 yards per carry.
He also caught 19 passes for 202 yards and three touchdowns.
He was in his second season at South Carolina following his transfer from Iowa Western Junior College.
