South Carolina won the battle for linebacker Skai Moore of Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday morning when he announced he would sign with the Gamecocks over Vanderbilt and Rutgers.

He also got a late offer from Miami but never seriously considered it.

Moore once was committed to Rutgers but decommitted in early January. He later visited USC and the Gamecocks rose to the top of his list. He also took a visit to Wisconsin. Some of his other offers were Nebraska, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, West Virginia, Texas A&M and Ohio State.

Last season Moore had 105 tackles with 6.5 sacks and 4 interceptions.

He joined Jonathan Walton on Signing Day as officially joining the Gamecocks and giving them five linebackers in this class.
