No Givens & still waiting on some other Gamecocks to be cleared

So the Givens "soap opera" is over as he wants to go to Rutgers. But The State's Joe Person is reporting today - HERE - that USC coaches and officials are still awaiting word on the status of a few other gamecocks.
Georgia Military OL Steven Singleton and Rokevious Watkins, DL Leon Mackey and tailback Ben Axon, who was arrested a few months ago on a marijuana charge in his hometown of Bradenton, Fla. Seems their are some paperwork issues with all of the above dealing with academics. And the Axon situation is a little more touchy as he needs to get a "pass" from USC officials after being arrested.

Let's hope all of the above get cleared soon and are able to get in on practice early as all of the above could add depth but also need to learn the SC system to be effective in '09.
