COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

Reserve offensive lineman J.P. Vonashek is no longer with No. 20 South Carolina.

The school said Friday the freshman from St. Mary's, GA., had left the Gamecocks midway through his freshman season. Vonashek is a 6-foot-6, 283-pound lineman who chose South Carolina over scholarship offers from Florida State, Georgia, Miami and Ohio State among others.

The 19-year-old Vonashek had been listed as a backup to tackle Brandon Shell when the year began but had not played this season. Junior Cody Gibson is Shell's backup at right tackle when the Gamecocks (5-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) play fifth-ranked Missouri (7-0, 3-0) Saturday night.
