ANDERSON, S.C. - South Carolina recently picked up a commitment from Anderson (S.C.) Westside wide receiver Moe Brown who attended the Gamecocks summer camp, dominated and earned himself an offer. If you ask Brown, once the offer came the decision was easy.
"I look at what coach Spurrier did at Florida," Brown said. "He is known for making good players to great players and that is what I am. I am not a great player yet, but I think with coach Spurrier he can get me there and help me be the best I can and help me get to that next level."
The 6-foot-0, 170-pound Brown runs the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds and has a 36-inch vertical jump.
"Another thing that I really liked was the fact that Curtis Frye coaches hurdles at South Carolina," Brown said. "I am going to be doing that when I'm up there and coach Frye is considered one of the best hurdles coaches in the world and to get to learn from him is awesome."
As a junior he caught 46 passes for 521 yards and seven touchdowns. He also plays defense where he collected 36 tackles and four interceptions as a junior.
"I love the fact that I will be close enough to where I can get home if I need to, but far enough away to enjoy myself," Brown said. "Coach Cooper was the guy who was recruiting me at first, but then Steve Spurrier Jr. saw at the camp and he kind of took over from there."
Brown is commitment No. 3 for the Gamecocks and in a year where wide receivers are a big need, the first commitment from a wide receiver.
"I'm an all-around wide receiver," Brown said. "I think my best attribute is my knowledge of the game. I am quick and I can get away from any defensive back, but I think what separates me is my ability to read coverages and stuff."
