DL Taylor Stallworth of Mobile, AL has been committed to USC since July and his official visit with the Gamecocks over the weekend all but sealed the deal with him.
Stallworth called the strength of his pledge a "10" after the visit.
He is scheduled to visit Mississippi State this coming weekend but that trip is in doubt now and is something he will discuss with his parents Monday afternoon.
"If I could sign today, I would sign with South Carolina," Stallworth said. "I got to meet some of the players and learned about how it us up there. And I met the coaches and the recruits I'm going to be around when I get there. Coach Spurrier told me to prepare myself to come in and help them win an SEC championship."
Never miss a local story.
Stallworth said no coaches are scheduled to visit him this coming week but he's expecting Spurrier to visit the following week.
