Frank Martin and the South Carolina Gamecocks added a second player to their 2016 recruiting class. Rakym Felder, a point guard at Coney Island's Abraham Lincoln High School - but originally out of Fort Mill, SC - pledged to Martin on Sunday night.

Felder, who received offers from Quinnipiac and Temple - with schools like Baylor and Notre Dame showing interest  stands to be a part of the Gamecocks' point guard rotation along with P.J. Dozier and Marcus Stroman. Although he is listed as a SG at some recruiting sites, he was recruited to play the point at Carolina. He will join Sedee Keita, a four-star forward from Greenville, as the team's second commitment for the class. The Gamecocks will have two scholarships one scholarship remaining with Laimonas Chatkevicius, Mindaugus Kacinas, Michael Carrera and Brian Steele (not on scholarship) all graduating this spring.

Lincoln currently sits at 19-7 (10-3 in the PSAL Brooklyn's Class AA) and is ranked sixth in the state of New York.
