15' Myrtle Beach WR/S Kyle Belack Commits

2015 Myrtle Beach wide receiver Kyle Belack hit the road over the weekend to visit both schools who had offered him and during that time he saw and heard enough to make the difficult decision to change his verbal commitment. Inside he talks about it all and what his plans are moving forward in helping Myrtle Beach try and repeat as AAA state champions.

Watching Belack recently at the Palmetto State Showdown 7 on 7 Tournament at Byrnes its easy to see why he's got a nice mix of suitors. Committed to Marshall for over a month Belack took to the road over the past weekend and checked out both schools that offered him.

"My family and I visited Marshall on Friday and Ohio on Saturday."

On Saturday Belack switched up his commitment from Marshall to Ohio and he talked to us about why he decided to make that change.

"It just seemed to be a better fit for me academically and athletically."

The Ohio staff had an overwhelming reaction when he told them he was committing to them.

"The coaches were ecstatic! They all gave me hugs and were really excited. I will be at wide out and possibly run the ball some there they said."

Being committed to Marshall previously and now to Ohio hasn't stoppped other schools from actively recruiting Belack. He talked to us about the schools who've maintained their interest in him during the past few months.

"South Carolina, UCF (Central Florida), and Duke."

Belack says the in-state Gamecocks like what they've seen of him thus far and want to see more of him moving forward.

"South Carolina likes me at defensive back. Coach Spurrier Jr. wrote me some letters saying he needs defensive film on me and he is going to be watching closely during the season."

So with his commitment to Ohio is Belack going to keep all of his options open?

"No sir. I'm 100% for Ohio. If schools come through with offers that would be nice but Ohio really blew me away. It's incredible there."

Helping Myrtle Beach win the AAA state championship last season we asked the 2015 wide receiver what his goals are for his team and himself this coming season.

"I just want to win as much as possible. I don't care about stats at all. I just want to win the region title and another state title."

Last season Belack says he had 63 catches for 1100 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns.

Queried about what player he thinks his game most resembles he replied, "Antonio Brown. He's my height and he plays slot and outside. He's fast but not the fastest but runs great routes and he was an underrated guy in high school and college."

Belack oozes with confidence when on the football field and he backs it up with his playmaking abilities. He talked about where that confidence originates from.

"It's something I've always tried to do in whatever sport I play. Always playing with a huge chip on my shoulder. And knowing you come to play and dominate."

That ability to dominate is something that has developed with plenty of work and repetition. The 2015 wideout talked about the chemistry he and 2016 Myrtle Beach quarterback Drayton Arnold have together.

"Well we have established great chemistry as a unit and when its all clicking I would imagine its really hard to stop. Everything is just clicking now and we're all on the same page."

Belack says he'll take an official visit to Ohio this coming season. He also talked about what it'll take to repeat as AAA state champions.

"We can't get complacent, put in the hard work necessary, and make no excuses."
