Running back Jalen Holston of Stockbridge, Ga., came through South Carolina’s camps earlier this month and earned an offer from Will Muschamp.
Holston (5-11, 200) said the Gamecocks will get considerable consideration.
“I like how they are really close to my family,” he said. “I’m up in Columbia a lot, so being there would be great for my family. I think I would fit perfect in their offense. They need a running back bad and I think I would be the guy to carry the load for them. They like my size , vision, ability to break tackles, the speed I have to be as big as I am, and how I’m a north-south runner.”
Holston also has offers from Duke, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Mississippi State, NC State, West Virginia and Vanderbilt. He also camped at Virginia Tech, Duke and Georgia.
He rushed for 1,503 yards last season for Stockbridge High.
