USC gained its fourth commitment for the 2019 class Wednesday morning in OL Mark Fox (6-4 290) of Miami. Fox announced his commitment on Twitter. He was offered by the Gamecocks on Monday.
Fox said he actually committed to Gamecock head coach Will Muschamp Tuesday night. He said he has been heavily recruited by offensive line coach Eric Wolford and was impressed with what he’s seen and heard from him and Muschamp.
“They coaches are real, real good and they make sure their players are alright and stay straight. The program is definitely getting better and better. The coaches are always honest and will always make sure you are straight as a student athlete.”
Fox has never visited USC but said he may join a couple of teammates on a visit March 31st, and if he can’t make it then he’ll definitely be in for a camp in June.
Fox said his size and agility are two things coaches like about him.
“My strength and speed,” he said are two things that stand out.
Fox also has offers from Florida, Auburn, Ole Miss, Louisville, Georgia, Illinois, Purdue, Central Florida and others. He said he is not ready to shut down his recruiting and will continuing talking with other schools.
Fox said he visited Georgia, Auburn, Florida and Alabama last summer and has not yet taken any visits this year.
“I’m going to continue to keep it open, I’m not going to close it,” he said. Fox said he’s not sure yet if he’ll sign in December or if he will graduate early.
Fox is projected as an offensive tackle and he joins LB Ahdarrious Gee, DE Rodricus Fitten, and DL Jaylen Nichols as the Gamecocks commitments for the 2019 class.
