Quarterback Connor Mitch from Wakefield High School in Raleigh, N.C., committed to South Carolina on Tuesday.
Alabama, Auburn and LSU were contenders to land Mitch.
“I don’t know if it was a difficult decision, but it was stressful,” Mitch told the Charlotte Observer. “There was a lot going on in my head. But with South Carolina, it was love at first site. I knew I wanted to go there after my first visit. It has everything that I want.”
Mitch, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 13 quarterback by ESPNU, has the qualities of a pro-style passer.
“Connor has the size and is a very accurate passer,” Wakefield coach Rod Sink told the Observer. “He also has the ability to read the defense and make the right pass.”
