Jacksonville (Fla.) Wolfson three-star athlete Jasper Sasser didn't make his way to South Carolina for their spring game, but Saturday still felt like the right time for him to decide to become a Gamecock.
"I committed to South Carolina today," Sasser said. "I called Coach (Steve) Spurrier after their spring game and told him that I wanted to go to South Carolina. We just talked about the spring game and how they did. I then told him that I wanted to be a Gamecock."
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete shed some light on the reason why he felt that the SEC program was the right place for him.
"To me, South Carolina just seems more like a family," Sasser said. "They all help one another. It is a school where I can see myself fitting in and getting my work done. It just seemed like it was a family with the connection that I had with the coaching staff."
When Sasser arrives on-campus at South Carolina, he has an idea of which position he will be contributing at.
"I am an athlete, so they told me whatever position that they need me at the most when I get there will be my spot and I told them I would play wherever they needed me," Sasser said. "I think it could be receiver, safety, or running back. I think more than likely I will be playing defensive back for the Gamecocks."
Despite double-digit offers, Sasser says he has found his future home and needs to look no further.
"I think I am done," Sasser said. "I know I want to be at South Carolina. That is where I want to be."
Sasser said he hoped to return to South Carolina's campus during the summer for a visit. He will take an official visit during the season as well.
