Former South Carolina wide receiver Shaq Roland is expected to finish his collegiate career at Prairie View.

Shaq Roland, who was third in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns and fourth in receptions in 10 games during the 2014 season, is expected to transfer to Prairie immediately, according to family members. 

Just before before Christmas, Roland quit the team.

Roland, a PARADE All-American and Mr. Football in South Carolina, will be eligible to play for Prairie View under NCAA rules to play in 2015, but he might have to serve a two-game or four-game academic suspension to begin the season.

In 2013, Roland was suspended from the team for three games after violating team rules.

Despite all of that recruiting potential, Roland will finish his Gamecock career with 56 catches for 891 yards and 10 touchdowns.

A junior, Roland had 56 catches for 891 yards and 10 touchdowns during his career at South Carolina.


  1. If Shaq would have been 7 feet tall he would have caught more passes for the
    Gamecocks. The QB had a habit of throwing passes about 2 to 3 feet over the ends and receivers heads.
    Plus Shaq has ADHD. He was taking his medicine, and during the season the NCAA made the drug illegal. He was penalized for a few games. Had a change medicine.
