Four-star quarterback Lorenzo Nunez commits to South Carolina

The four-star 2015 quarterback announced his commitment via twitter, picking South Carolina over North Carolina State and Ohio State.

Dual-threat quarterback Lorenzo Nunez of Kennesaw (Ga.) Harrison committed to South Carolina on Thursday evening, choosing the Gamecocks over Ohio State and N.C. State. Steve Spurrier and company were able to hold off a strong push from the Wolfpack after Nunez visited Raleigh, N.C. on April 26. Nunez is rated as the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback and the 219th-best overall prospect in the 2015 class according to the 247Sports Composite Index.

The Gamecocks' coaching staff had originally targeted two quarterbacks in the 2015 class: Nunez and Brandon Wimbush of Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep. After Wimbush committed to Penn State earlier this week, Nunez was the next domino to fall. South Carolina offered Nunez on March 28 and, after a visit to Columbia in April, the relationship between the signal caller and quarterback coach G.A. Mangus really seemed to flourish.

Nunez's film reveals the physical tool and athleticism coaches look for in a dual-threat quarterback. Though he's a bit raw as a passer, he really knows how to his athleticism to extend plays. At 6'3, 190, Nunez demonstrates a powerful arm and has both the playmaking ability and speed that gives nightmares to opposing defenses

When Dylan Thompson exits the program after this season, Brendan Nosovitch may be the only quarterback left that truly presents a threat as a runner. Connor Mitch, Perry Orth, and Michael Scarnecchia aren't completely immobile but are definitely more along the lines of traditional pocket passers, so the addition of Nunez will add another dimension to the quarterback position starting in 2015.
