Columbia, SC-- University of South Carolina junior linebacker Eric Norwood has decided to return to the Gamecock program for his senior season.
Norwood was a consensus first team All-Southeastern Conference selection in 2008 after finishing second on the squad in tackles to go along with 9 sacks. He also recovered two fumbles and forced another.
"I"ve been thinking it over and, after sitting down with my family, I have decided it would be best for me to return to South Carolina for another year" said Norwood. "Coming back for my senior year will not only improve my NFL draft status but will aslo help the team out. I will also be able to finish up my degree in December," added Norwood.
