There was an unexpected presence at South Carolina’s football pro day in March: Wide receiver Matrick Belton.
He was unexpected because he didn’t play for USC last season. He wrapped up a five-year career as a Gamecocks walk-on in 2016, not catching any passes in his final campaign. Yet he was there.
Now the Keenan High School product tweeted he’s getting a shot at continuing his career.
Belton tweeted Monday he’s been invited to the Philadelphia Eagles rookie minicamp. That’s a spot many players go after the NFL draft, trying to fight for a chance to extend a football career a little longer.
