Gamecocks star Horn opts out to focus on draft


South Carolina star cornerback Jaycee Horn announced on Monday that he’s opting out of the remainder of the season to begin preparing for the NFL draft.

Horn’s decision comes a day after South Carolina fired head coach Will Muschamp.

ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. lists Horn as the sixth-best draft-eligible cornerback.

Horn is the son of former NFL wideout Joe Horn.

Horn, a junior, leaves South Carolina with the most interceptions (2) and pass break-ups (6) on the team this season.

South Carolina fell to 2-5 after a loss to Ole Miss on Saturday.

The Gamecocks, which host Missouri this weekend, have three remaining regular-season games.
