Gamecocks continue recruiting blitz with OL

South Carolina has added the commitment of offensive lineman Cody Gibson of Lincoln High in Tallahassee, Fla., likely finished filling out its O-line for the Class of 2010.

Gibson, who is 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds, picked the Gamecocks over East Carolina, Marshall, Maryland, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Southern Mississippi and Tulane, all of whom had offered.

He is South Carolina’s sixth O-line commitment (the team is expected to sign six) and 13th overall, as the Gamecocks continue their fast recruiting start.

“I loved the facilities,” Gibson said. “Getting to play early is a big factor. They are graduating ten offensive linemen over the next two years.”

Gibson expects to redshirt.

“They told me two years from now they expect me to be ready to play,” he said.

Eventually the program sees him as a left tackle.
