USC picked up its third commitment for the 2020 class Tuesday when OL Issiah Walker (6-4 265) of Miami announced his intentions to play for the Gamecocks. Walker also has offers from Florida, Kentucky and South Florida.
“I picked South Carolina because I feel the most comfortable there,” Walker said. what I like about Coach Wolf (OL coach Eric Wolford) is that he gives off a good vibe when you be around him and I can play for someone like that. He likes my fire off the ball and I see myself there with a great future by learning more from Coach Wolf. It feels wonderful to be able to play in the SEC.”
Travaris Robinson, who recruits South Florida for the Gamecocks, also was instrumental in landing Walker for the program. The Gamecocks were not the early leader. Walker said in February Florida was his favorite and he was one of the first players Gators’ coach Dan Mullen visited in January. He said his decision came down to the Gamecocks and Gators.
But, despite the public pledge, he does not consider his recruiting completed.
“This will not be shutting down my recruitment,” Walker said.
Walker joins RB Mecose Todd and OL Tyshawn Wannamaker as 2020 commitments for the Gamecocks.
