Gamecocks Pick Up Two Commitments

UPDATE: USC picked up another commitment, this time from OT Mike Matulis. Matulis had offers from Florida State, Mississippi State, South Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, West Virginia and a number of mid-tier programs.

USC picked up two commitments this weekend: OT Kaleb Broome and DE Lorenzo Mauldin. Check out the stories at the following links:

Mauldin (240 / 6'4) picked Carolina over Kentucky, Troy, Samford, Marshall, Middle Tennessee and South Alabama, while Broome chose us over East Carolina and also had interest from Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Washington State.

Both of these guys look like solid prospects, but some Carolina fans will probably be grumbling that we continue to fail to pick up commitments from the big-name recruits. I would advise a little patience here. We're on the leaders list for a number of nationally recognized recruits, and most of those guys are going to wait until late in the game to make their decisions. I think a lot of these guys--like Javedeon Clowney and Brandon Shell--are going to be Gamecocks, and when we get them on board, this class should shoot up into the top 20. It'll be a lot like 2008-09 in that sense, when we got big commitments in the end game that helped us to form one of the SEC's best classes.
