4-star RB to South Carolina

South Carolina got a huge win Saturday over Alabama and they received big recruiting news on Sunday.

"Shon Carson has committed to South Carolina," Coach Apicella informed Scout Sunday afternoon.

Scout will have more on this story, but the Gamecocks are getting a very goo two-sport (football/baseball) athlete in Carson.

On the football field, the 5-foot-9, 195 pound running back plays with a combination of power and speed. He runs low to the ground, he has shown good balance, and he his a nice burst around the edge.

This is big news for Steve Spurrier and the Gamecocks.
