IMG Forward Reaches Decision

Renaldo Balkman, a member of Top 100, reached a college decision on Monday. He's headed to the SEC.

Balkman Picks South Carolina

Renaldo Balkman, a 6-7 forward at IMG Academy, committed to South Carolina on Monday, according to our sources. Balkman joins forward Brandon Wallace and scoring point guard Tre Kelly in the 2003 USC recruiting class.

Balkman is a member of our Top 100 and a prospect. On the first day of the Nike All-American Camp, we raved of his defensive ability. Blessed with long arms and a great frame, Balkman can really guard.

Those long arms make him a tremendous rebounder as well (see shot chart below).

In addition to the Gamecocks, Balkman had previously been listed with South Florida, Central Florida, Charlotte and Miami-FL.
