Carolina nabs Lammons
South Carolina has picked up a big piece of the 2014 recruiting class with a signing day announcement from four-star Chris Lammons.
The Plantation (Fla.) athlete will play cornerback at South Carolina and has an excellent chance to play early for secondary coach Grady Brown, who also recruited Lammons to Columbia.
The 5-foot-9, 168-pounder drew a double digit group of scholarship offers during the recruiting process. He committed to Florida in August of 2013 but backed off that pledge last month.
Following that, Lammons' recruitment came down to Wisconsin and South Carolina. The Badgers received an official visit from the south Florida athlete back in November while he was still committed to the Gators and his official visit to Columbia was in mid-January.
Rivals.com ranks Lammons as the fourteenth-best in the country in the athlete category and as a four-star prospect.
"I have a chance to start, play early," Lammons said after his announcement. "I feel comfortable. South Carolina and Wisconsin were bumping heads all week. SEC, I like the coaches, feel comfortable.
Gamecock secondary coach Grady Brown was credited as playing a large role in Lammons' decision to pick USC.
The relationship with Coach Grady Brown is an excellent relationship," Lammons said. "He's not only a coach, he's like more a mentor."
