#STRecruiting: WR Jayden Sellers talks about commitment to #Gamecocks

Jayden Sellers

It’s a Sellers market for USC coach Shane Beamer at South Florence High School. Last December, Beamer landed Bruins quarterback LaNorris Sellers after his decommitment from Syracuse. Thursday, he picked up the other half of the Sellers family dynamic passing combo with a commitment from 2025 WR Jayden Sellers (6-0 170). Sellers becomes Beamer’s first commitment for the 2025 class.

The younger Sellers also had offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, Virginia Tech and Syracuse. But ever since his brother committed to the Gamecocks last December, he knew he wanted to reunite with him again in college.

“I just felt like the time was right, and my brother is there, of course, so that’s why I committed,” Sellers said.  “We’ve been doing it since we were young, so I just wanted to do it in college, too.  He was telling me to go ahead and commit.”

Jayden Sellers has watched a lot of USC football this season both in person and on television. He’s a slot receiver who sometimes lines up in the backfield, and he envisions doing the same with the Gamecocks.

“I like how they put their receivers in the backfield and use them for almost everything, a running back/receiver type position.” Sellers said. “Coach Beamer said he likes my speed and how I attack the ball.”

And of course, there’s nothing like playing for the home-state school just an hour down I-20 from the fmaily home.

“I like that it’s close to home, they’ve got nice facilities and they’ve got great coaches,” Sellers said. 

Sellers burst on the scene last season catching 39 passes for 827 yards and 12 touchdowns teaming with his brother to lead the Bruins to the 4A State Championship. He was on his way to an even bigger season when he tore his ACL against Hartsville on September 29th. He said he is recovering nicely and will have surgery November 6th. At the time of the injury, Sellers had 27 catches for 295 yards and six touchdowns.
