One of the top wideouts in the Atlantic area made his choice known on Monday night.
Shelby (N.C.) Crest wide receiver Travis Lee committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks over offers from Georgia, North Carolina, Clemson and others.
"I knew for a while now, but I didn't want to make the move just yet," said the 6-foot-1, 187-pounder. "It just started eating away at me a bit so I decided to commit. I just felt more comfortable at South Carolina, felt I had a better chance to play early and I knew some people there already. I also got along great with my recruiting coach. Coach (Dave) DeGuglielmo and I could just talk about anything for an hour. It wasn't always football."
Lee was a standout on the summer camp circuit this year, impressing at both USC and Georgia. In the end it came down to the Gamecocks and Dawgs.
"Now I get to play them every year," he said. "That's going to be fun. I like the coaches there and almost went there, but now they're a rival."
