Bamberg tight end Kevin Crosby commits to South Carolina

TheBigSpur.com

Steve Spurrier picks up a big commitment from 6'2", 236-pound 2014 tight end K.C. Crosby.

Four star tight end Kevin "KC" Crosby committed to South Carolina on Saturday afternoon over upwards of 40 division one offers. Crosby becomes the Gamecocks' 5th commitment in the 2014 class, having one more year left to play at Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School, the alma mater of starting left guard A.J. Cann.

This is how Crosby stacks up to his peers according to the 247Sports composite index:

4 stars, 260th overall player in the 2014 class
8th ranked tight end
7th best player in South Carolina

Where will he play?

While Crosby is certainly highly regarded as a tight end prospect, there are many who think he has greater upside at linebacker. But the plan is for Crosby to start out at tight end when he arrives in Columbia because that is Crosby's preference, and that is how Joe Robinson and Everette Sands recruited him. In fact, South Carolina's heavy use of two tight end sets was one major selling points for Crosby.

And, despite he panic that surrounded the linebacker position as Signing Day 2013 drew nigh, tight end may actually be a position of greater need by the time Crosby sets foot on campus around this time next year. As we mentioned when South Carolina picked up their first 2014 TE commitment from Kalan Ritchie, it's possible that Drew Owens will be the only scholarship tight end on the roster entering 2014 spring practice.

Are the Gamecocks done at tight end for 2014?

Yes. Barring sudden interest from a five star type of recruit, the Gamecocks are likely done at tight end, linebacker, and quarterback. With tight numbers, Steve Spurrier is likely already more than a third of the way toward filling up the 2014 class.

Crosby's commitment moves South Carolina's 2014 class to #40 nationally and 13th in the SEC, according to 247Sports' composite ranking.
