USC Lands Sunshine State Sleeper
"I committed to South Carolina on Monday," Patrick DiMarco said. "Coach Hunt came to visit me and I spoke to Coach Spurrier a few times. I'm taking my visit there this weekend and that'll be my only one." DiMarco, 6-foot-2 and 230 pounds, spoke more about his commitment to the Gamecocks.
"I went up there this summer for camp and I really enjoyed it," he said. "Me and my parents toured the campus, saw the city, and we all liked it a lot. It fits me well. He's recruiting me as an H-Back, which is good because he likes to throw the ball a lot and that will give me a lot of opportunities. Education-wise, they're pretty strong. And plus, with Coach Spurrier being there, that made a big difference. He's a great coach and I can't wait to play for him."
DiMarco, who helped lead his team to the Class 6A state championship game this season, said he picked South Carolina over a few others.
"I also had offers from Eastern Kentucky, Western Kentucky, Carson Newman, FAU, and Samford," he said. "I'm excited about playing in the SEC."
DiMarco finished the regular season with seven catches for 155 yards and two scores. While playing defensive end, he had 68 tackles, 18 for loss, and a team-best 12 sacks.
