There is little doubt that Aramis Hillary is Coastal Carolina's quarterback of the future. It remains to be seen if the future is now.
The South Carolina transfer said this week he still plans to enroll at Coastal this summer, though he has yet to sign anything that would bind him to the program. He was scheduled to be in Conway on Friday and work out some of those details, The Sun News reported.
With Coastal's offense in need of a makeover, he could be the savior if he beats out, or pushes, starter Zach MacDowall in August. The 6-1, 210-pound sophomore is ready for a fresh start and a chance to compete for the starting job, something he wasn't going to get at USC behind Stephen Garcia and freshman Connor Shaw.
"I can't wait," Hillary said. "New place. New face. ... I just wanted to get out of Carolina. Maybe the coaches will give me a chance (to start) at least. If I don't win, that's all right."
Hillary admitted that he honestly wasn't a great fit for the Gamecocks' offense.
Bulldog signs with CFL
The Citadel defensive lineman Terrence Reese signed a free agent contract to play for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
The 6-0, 286-pounder from North became the second player from the 2009 team who will be playing pro ball next season. Receiver Andre Roberts was selected in the third round of the NFL draft by Arizona. An all-conference pick, Reese totaled 166 tackles, including 33 stops for a loss and 7 1/2 sacks in 45 Bulldogs games.
