South Carolina Gamecocks quarterback Jake Bentley will be returning for his senior season.

The talented throwing threat recently announced the news on Twitter with a video about “One Last Ride.”

You can watch it below.

Well, SEC defenses might not be happy about Bentley returning, but I’m sure fans of the Gamecocks sure are. (RELATED: Who Will Win The College Football National Championship? One Team Is A Heavy Favorite)

Bentley hasn’t had the success some might have anticipated when he arrived on campus, but make no mistake about it, he is one of the most talented quarterbacks in America.

He can absolutely throw with the best of them.

The junior quarterback almost certainly has an NFL future of some kind in front of him. Is he likely going to be a day one pick? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t hang around on a roster for a long time.

I have no doubt at all that he can play on Sundays for years to come. Now, he might be holding a clipboard while doing it, but those checks still cash the same.

His return at the very least will make South Carolina competitive in the SEC next season. It’s already shaping up to be an incredible 2019 for college football.
