South Carolina Picks Up Commitment Number One

The Gamecocks pick up their first commitment of the early recruiting season ...

Spartanburg (S.C.) Dorman athlete Mychal Belcher has made a commitment to the South Carolina Gamecocks. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder had received interest from Tennessee, NC State, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Georgia Southern, and many others.

"I committed to USC last week while I was down there for a tour. I have always wanted to go there. They think I can come in and play early as a defensive back. I'm going to stick by my commitment."

Belcher had also received offers from Tennessee, Maryland, and NC State after outstanding performances at those camps. He threw for over 1500 yards and 16 touchdowns while piling up over 600 yards and adding nine more touchdowns on the ground.
