"Yes, I intend to play for the Gamecocks," Sledge said.
Sledge is most likely done taking visits, but could still decide to make his scheduled trip to Ohio State Jan. 21-23.
"I'm not really sure," Sledge said. "I can't say for sure right now. I committed to South Carolina without my family on the trip. We are going to sit down today (Monday) and have a family meeting. I am 100 percent South Carolina and their coaches don't want me to take any more visits. But I'm going to do what my family thinks is best. If they think I should visit Ohio State, I will. My family has final say. I have not cancelled my Ohio State visit."
Sledge (6-3, 200, 4.54) is a bit of a late bloomer. He played in a rushing offense in high school and caught just 15 passes for 325 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
He is looking forward to playing in Spurrier's fun 'n gun offense.
"Coach Spurrier is a great coach and it will be a challenge," Sledge said. "I will have the opportunity to play next year and Coach Spurrier is going to throw the ball a lot. He is great at putting receivers in the NFL.
"It's going to be a challenge with him taking over the team. He wants to win. The program has kind of been mediocre. He wants to go from 6-4 years, to 10-0 and the SEC title."
Sledge was asked what else stands out about South Carolina.
"The school and the city are nice, and I like the academics," he said. "But to be honest with you, it wasn't like, ‘Wow, I'm knocked off my feet.' It was just a nice place. I'm a plain type of guy. A chill guy. I'm from a big city (Orlando) and I wanted to go to a school that was in no party town, and wasn't a country town."
Columbia obviously fits that bill better than Columbus or Louisville.
"It's a tough decision," Sledge said. "I wanted to go to the team that passed the ball the most and that was South Carolina and Louisville. I just think South Carolina and Coach Spurrier are going to throw it a lot."
