Three-star wide receiver Tyshun Samuel commits to South Caroilna

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

The wideout prospect from Inman, S.C. becomes the 15th commitment in the Gamecocks' 2014 class.

South Carolina extended an offer to Tyshun Samuel on Nov. 23, and it didn't take long for the 5'11, 180-pound wideout to accept, making his pledge during a ceremony at Chapman High School on Thursday. Samuel committed to the Gamecocks over nine other FBS offers, making his final decision between South Carolina, North Carolina, and Appalachian State.

According to the 247Sports Composite index, Samuel is a three-star prospect and the 116th-ranked wide receiver prospect in the 2014 class. Following the summer commitments of Shaq Davidson and Terry Googer, Samuel becomes the third wide receiver to pledge to sign with the Gamecocks this February.

Also, an important note on Tyshun's nickname, which bears a phonetic similarity to that of the head coach of that team in the upstate:

In the wake of Samuel's announcement, South Carolina's class ranking improved from 30th to 27th. Though the size of the class was originally thought to be limited to 15, the behavior of the recruiting staff seems to indicate that the number of players that the Gamecocks will ultimately take could end up approaching 22, the maximum allowed under South Carolina's current NCAA sanctions.
