USC gained another offensive line commitment early Sunday afternoon when OT Jatavius Shivers (6-7 270) of Villa Rica, GA announced his plans to join Shane Beamer and the Gamecock program. Shivers is the third offensive linemen to commit for the 2023 class and he gives the Gamecocks a total of 14 commitments.
Shivers also had Florida State, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss on his short list. He was once a Vanderbilt commitment. Auburn offered him this weekend while he was in for a visit, and he’s also picked up recent offers from Michigan and USF.
Shivers has not made his official visit to USC yet but has made multiple unofficial visits. That included a spring practice where he got to watch offensive line coach Greg Adkins work with his players.
“He’s a very good coach,” Shivers said after that visit. “He takes his time with every single lineman. He takes the time to teach them and isn’t always just yelling. He’s a very intense coach but he takes his time and teaches the players. They say that I’m athletic and for my size I can move really well. Wingspan of 81 (inches).”
The Gamecocks are hopeful of adding a fourth offensive lineman to their class later this afternoon when Markee Anderson of Dorman reveals his decision. He also has Clemson, LSU and North Carolina in the mix.
