Three-star defensive end Blake McClain will announce a decision between South Carolina and Nebraska on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. EST. As late as Monday afternoon, McClain was split '50-50' as to what that decision would be. As of Monday evening, the 6'4, 280-pound lineman has now decided which school he will commit to on National Signing Day but has not revealed whether it will be the Huskers or the Gamecocks.
South Carolina's pursuit of the Ponte Vedra (Fla.) Sandalwood standout appeared to be dead in the water after McClain committed to Nebraska on Feb. 1 following his official visit to Lincoln. Then, on Monday, McClain said that he and his parents went through "a reevaluation of everything" and concluded, "It was very tough... but I think I made the right decision."
McClain is keeping this pretty close to the vest, but there has been significant movement toward South Carolina in his 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions. However, If McClain, the No. 22 strong-side defensive end in the 2014 class, signs with the Gamecocks, he will have done so without having ever set foot in Colulmbia, S.C.
