Gamecocks, Mountaineers grab Charlotte Christian players—for baseball

South Carolina has received the commitment of Charlotte Christian free safety Jake Watson for baseball. Watson, who is having a fine football season (four interceptions), is an outstanding shortstop as well for the Knights, and more highly thought-of as a baseball prospect.

A similar situation has unfolded with Christian’s quarterback, John Kincaid. While he’s having an excellent season that includes more than 1,000 passing yards and 15 TDs, he’s a bigger baseball prospect, and we mean that literally.

At 6-foot and 175 pounds, Kincaid is not big enough to play quarterback at the highest collegiate level, where they like their QBs to be 6-3. A pitcher and outfielder for the Knights, he’s committed to Appalachian State on a baseball grant.
