Recruit makes verbal commitment to USC

The University of South Carolina picked up a wide receiver verbal commitment from Camden County star DeAngelo Smith on Thursday. Smith a 6 foot 2, 185 pound senior chose USC over Florida, Illinois, UGA and Indiana. His high school coach said he has a ton of upside, good speed and the ability to run crisp routes.
We look forward to seeing you on the field.

Go Cocks!

Shortly after Smith made his commitment, DeMario Bennett (6-3, 185) of Douglas, Ga., made his pledge.

Bennett, who also attended USC's June camp, said he considered Clemson and Florida though neither has offered.

And the last of the three commitments came from Charles Holmes (6-3, 197) of South Pointe.

Holmes' highly regarded teammate, ATH Stephon Gilmore, is a Gamecocks target as well, and Holmes hopes his decision will influence his friend to join him.

Last season, Holmes caught 44 passes for 988 yards and five touchdowns.

The three commitments give the Gamecocks a total of 10 for their 2009 class.
