Mitch Jeter

PK Mitch Jeter of Concord, NC landed an offer from USC last week and that immediately moved the Gamecocks high up on his list with Virginia Tech, East Carolina and Memphis. Jeter made an unofficial visit to Columbia Saturday and committed to the Gamecocks. Though he is a 2020 graduate, the plan is for him to count against the ’21 class.  Jeter said he may enroll in the second session of summer school in June and pay his own way his first year, or he would wait and enroll in August and have his scholarship count toward ’21.  

“It’s an amazing feeling,” Jeter said Saturday night.  “I get to live my dreams out by playing football in the SEC. It’s super exciting and I’m super honored and grateful for the staff to believe in me.”  

This season Jeter displayed a strong leg with a long field goal of 57 yards, and all of his deep kickoffs went for touchbacks. He was 8-10 on his field goal attempts.

“I’d compete for the job my freshman year on kickoffs and field goals,  and they want me to get in the environment so by the time  of my redshirt freshman year I can take over the field goal and kickoff job.” 

Jeter becomes the first recruit who will count for the Gamecocks’ 2021 class.
