With guard Ty Johnson being the lone player out of eligibility at the end of the season, South Carolina head coach Frank Martin won’t lack for depth on the perimeter going into the 2015-16 season. Yet that didn’t stop the SEC program from picking up another commitment, as 6-foot-4 shooting guard Jamall Gregory announced his decision to become a Gamecock Wednesday morning.
Gregory, who attends Elev8 Sports Institute in Delray Beach, Florida, made his decision less than a week after taking a visit to South Carolina. And he is the fourth player to have committed to South Carolina in the 2015 class.
In a story written by Phil Kornblut of the Charleston Post and Courier, Gregory made note of the intensity Martin wants his teams to play with defensively as something that appealed to him. He joins fellow guard P.J. Dozier and forwards Chris Silva and Travon Bunch in South Carolina’s 2015 class, with Bunch having verbally committed last month.
Those additions, plus the school’s continued pursuit of junior college big man Conor Clifford, place South Carolina in a spot where they’ll need to make some room for the additions. With that being the case, Johnson (who’s out of eligibility) may not be the only Gamecock on the move this spring.
