Defensive end Devin Washington (6-3 225) of Orlando became USC’s second commitment of the day Thursday when he announced a pledge to the Gamecocks on Twitter.
“Just committed to the University of South Carolina,” Washington tweeted. “So happy to be a part of the Gamecock nation.”
Washington recently named the Gamecocks as his favorite over nearly 30 other offers. “Everything about South Carolina is nice,” Washington said earlier in the spring when he nearly committed to the Gamecocks after a visit.
Washington had narrowed his list to a final ten of USC, Clemson, Central Florida, Vanderbilt, NC State, Duke, South Florida, Florida International, Ole Miss and Missouri.
Last season Washington had 55 tackles with 11 for loss and 6.5 sacks.
