USC’s big recruiting day Saturday, which included a pair of commitments for the 2018 class, also brought the Gamecocks’ their first commitment for 2019. LB Ahdarrious Gee (6-1 190) of Cordele, GA committed to the Gamecocks while attending the Spurs Up Cookout. Gee said he also strongly considered Mississippi State and Vanderbilt but saw USC as his best opportunity.
“I chose the Gamecocks because I feel home here in South Carolina,” Gee said. “I like the education level and the type of defense they run. They like the way I play the linebacker position and get to the ball.”
Gee had 208 tackles and 2 sacks as a sophomore. He also said part of the attraction the Gamecocks offered him is the chance to play for a defensive minded head coach in Will Muschamp and for defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson.
“They’re two great coaches. I can’t wait to play for them,” Gee said.
Asked if he can stick to his commitment over the next two seasons, Gee replied, “Oh yeah.”
