DB Antoine Wilder (5-11 175) of Atlanta became USC's third commitment in two days when he accepted an offer while at camp on Friday. Wilder is a teammate of USC defensive end commitment Arden Key and went into the camp hoping for an offer so that he could join his friend with the Gamecocks.
"It's SEC football," Wilder said. "They only lost two games last year. They are championship bound, and the way the recruiting class is going this year is great."
Wilder plays safety and corner in high school but expects to be a corner with the Gamecocks. And he believes he'll have no trouble fitting into USC's base 4-2-5 scheme.
"They run the same defense we run in high school," he said. "I wouldn't have to change up any scheme. They are aggressive and play a lot of man and that's what I love. I don't like to play conservative. I don't like to back off. I want to go after it."
Never miss a local story.
Last season Wilder had 122 tackles and 2 interceptions.
He's the Gamecocks' 16th commitment for the 2015 class and the second for the secondary.
