Stadnik twins commit

South Carolina running backs and tight ends coach Jay Graham has made North Carolina a huge priority since arriving in Columbia two years ago. After signing two prospects from there last class, Graham added two more Gamecocks Thursday when West Guilford (Greensboro, N.C.) OL twins Brock and Clayton Stadnik committed to South Carolina during a ceremony at their school.

Brock Stadnik is currently rated the No. 12 OT in the country and a four-star prospect. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound prospect chose the Gamecocks over offers from programs like North Carolina, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State and Tennessee among many others.

Clayton Stadnik is a 6-foot-2, 245-pound interior line prospect who had offers of his own from Virginia Tech, NC State, ECU and Wake Forest.

The twins father, John, played one season in the NFL for the San Diego Chargers.

"I have a really strong relationship with the coaches," Brock said yesterday of potential reasons for picking South Carolina. "It's a great football atmosphere. And its a really good conference, the SEC."

Brock spoke highly of Graham, his recruiter of record.

"We have a good relationship," Brock said. "We've been down there multiple times, so we've got a good relationship."
