Offensive lineman Kaleb Broome (6-6 320) of Georgia Military JC signed his scholarship papers with South Carolina on Thursday.
Broome, a native of Aiken, committed to USC earlier in the season.
Broome plays tackle and he knows what Gamecock line coach Shawn Elliott will be expecting from him from the moment he walks on campus.
"They are planning on me coming in to start," Broome said. "They have a lot of young tackles without a lot of experience. They need tackles to come in right away and get the job done. I enjoy the offense that they run. It's a lot of fun. And it's going to be fun playing for my home state."
Broome is the only junior college commitment USC has at this point.
The Gamecocks continue to await word from defensive lineman Leon Mackey of Hinds JC, MS, but he's not an early signee.
