Scouting Report: (6/14/2019) MarShawn is a strong, sturdy, well-built runner with a lower center of gravity. He is one of the more complete and well-rounded backs in this class and has a college-ready decisive style that should make him able to contribute immediately at South Carolina.

Lloyd displays very good vision, both in-line to find the cutback and outside to bounce the stretch play. He has the ability to get through tight creases for big gainers. He is a well-balanced runner who gets low behind his pads and is very difficult to knock off his feet. He consistently breaks arm tackles and bounces off contact when he gains momentum. He is a back who looks to get North and find the downhill crease without a lot of wasted cuts.

The Gamecocks have not had a 1000-yard rusher since 2013. Marshawn could break that streak within his first two seasons. He is not a guy that will give you many 70-yard runs but is more likely to give you two 35-yard runs in the second half.

MarShawn reminds me of former Alabama running back Damien Harris,
