South Carolina picked up a late Class of 2015 commitment on Monday as former Kansas State pledge Eric Cobb selected the Gamecocks. The 6-foot-9 Cobb is regarded as a three-star prospect, according to Rivals, and hails from Baltimore.
After decommitting from the Wildcats this spring, Cobb took official visits to South Carolina, Seton Hall and VCU before deciding on head coach Frank Martin’s program.
The Gamecocks now have a five-man class in 2015 that includes McDonald’s All-American guard P.J. Dozier, guard Jamall Gregory, forward Chris Silva and center Travon Bunch.
Martin certainly needed an influx of talent and this class should have some rotation players as early as next season. Silva and Cobb both have a chance to earn minutes in a thin South Carolina front line that returns Michael Carrera.
