South Carolina on Wednesday reached back into North Carolina with another offer, this one for Clinton linebacker Mohamed Kaba (6-foot-3, 205 pounds). The Gamecocks join Virginia, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, NC State, East Carolina and Duke on his offer list.

“I really don’t know much about South Carolina but I plan to know some more about their program,” Kaba said. “I was really excited when I had got the news and coach Muschamp told me he loved my film and what he heard about me. Coach said that he likes that I read plays fast and loves my length and size.”

Kaba said he will visit South Carolina on Jan. 19. He’s also hearing from Clemson and plans to visit there Jan. 26.

Kaba has attended summer camps at N.C. State and the Wolfpack were the first to offer and may have an early edge for him.

As a sophomore at Laurinburg High School, he had 48 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. He appeared to play more inside linebacker in his Clinton film, which included an interception dropping deep into pass coverage.
