South Carolina went to the state of Georgia this weekend to bolster its offensive line.
Alan Knott and J.P. Vonashek both committed to South Carolina to give the Gamecocks 17 commitments – four on the offensive line – for the class of 2013.
“It was either going to be South Carolina or Georgia, and I felt South Carolina was the best place for me,” Vonashek told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I went there for a visit and I really enjoyed it. It’s close to home and I think they are going to have a great program for the next couple of years.”
Vonashek, who attends Camden County High School in Kingsland, Ga., is considered the nation’s 32nd-best offensive tackle by ESPN RecruitingNation.
Knott, who attends Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., is ranked 11 spots higher than that on ESPN’s list. His list of offers include Miami, North Carolina and Virginia Tech. He’s expected to take an unofficial visit to South Carolina on Thursday, according to GamecockCentral.com.
