The ride home from Columbia was enough time for DB Kyle Fleetwood of Stone Mountain, GA to make a decision. After visiting USC earlier Sunday with his family, Fleetwood notified recruiter Lorenzo Ward Sunday night that he is pledging to the Gamecocks.
"South Carolina is a great school," he said. "It's a great coaching staff and Columbia's a great city. The shoe fits me just right. and I'm excited about my bright future at USC."
Fleetwood was recruited by USC as a strong safety. He had 42 tackles and 3 interceptions last season. "I have good size and speed and I move well," Fleetwood said. "I'm aggressive. I bring energy and play with a lot of emotion. And they play a lot of DBs on the field which means possible early playing time."
Fleetwood also had offers from Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, Louisville, Indiana, Ole Miss, South Florida, Southern Miss, Syracuse, Stanford, LSU, Boston College and Penn State.
He's the sixth commitment for the 2012 class, the third from Georgia and the second from Stone Mountain High School which has had 8 players commit to BCS schools this spring. He's the Gamecocks' first commitment for the secondary.
