LB Mohamed Kaba of Clinton, NC gave USC football coach Will Muschamp and his staff a big recruiting victory Thursday when he announced a commitment to the Gamecocks at his school. Kaba had four hats on the table in front of him representing USC, NC State, North Carolina and Florida. After stacking the other three on top of one another, Kaba reached over and placed the Gamecock cap on his head, stood and flashed the “Spurs Up” hand sign. Moments later Muschamp tweeted his “Spurs Up” alert for a commitment.
Kaba is the second straight big grab out of North Carolina for Muschamp. Last month he gained a commitment from receiver Mike Wyman of Greensboro. He gives the Gamecocks six commitments for their 2020 class and is the first on the defensive side.
Kaba made unofficial visits to USC for a junior day in January and was back to watch a spring practice in late March. He also took unofficial visits to North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee and NC State and an official visit to Oklahoma.
Some of his other offers were Clemson, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Duke and Vanderbilt.
