USC landed one of the state’s biggest prospects, in terms of size and stature, Friday when OL Donell Stanley (6-5 330) of Latta announced his commitment at a ceremony at his school.
The Shrine Bowl offensive tackle picked the Gamecocks over Clemson after eliminating Alabama and North Carolina.
Some recruiting analysts consider Stanley to be the state’s #1 prospect in this class. “His lower body is really good,” Latta coach Kelly Williamson said. “He has really good foot work (and size 22 shoes) and his lower body is really strong. He has exceptionally long arms and big hands. He’s the most athletic kid in school.” Stanley also stars on the Vikings’ basketball and baseball teams.
He’s the 13th commitment for USC’s 2014 class.
