Sindarius Thornwell commits to South Carolina


Frank Martin locked in his another big recruit of the 2013 season Monday when he got a commitment out of 6-4 wing Sidarius Thornwell, according to multiple outlets.

Thornwell, a consensus Top-40 prospect, is the second commitment of 2013 for South Carolina.

“He chose South Carolina,” said Thornwell’s uncle DaJuan, to Brian Snow of “He wanted to stay home and be a catalyst for the university.”

A five-star recruit by some publications, Thornwell, who is playing his final season at Oak Hill Academy, chose the Gamecocks over offers from programs such as Clemson, Memphis and Florida.
