CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Woodland junior offensive tackle Kam Pringle verbally committed to South Carolina on Sunday afternoon.

The top prospect in the Lowcountry and one of the top ranked offensive tackles in the nation in the Class of 2024, Pringle chose the Gamecocks in a ceremony at Woodland High.

“I feel like Carolina is a really good program,” Pringle said. “It’s on the rise. I have an opportunity to go in and play early and make an impact to the team.”

He added that South Carolina being close to home was another factor in his decision.

“The reason why I chose today, it’s my moms birthday. She grew up a Carolina fan,” Pringle said. “This is something I’ve been waiting on for a long time, looking forward to. So, having this day here, it just feels great.”

Pringle picked USC over his other top 6 schools of Clemson, Florida, Georgia, NC State and Tennessee.

The junior lineman becomes the highest rated prospect to commit to South Carolina in the Shane Beamer era and in Woodland High School history, according to Wolverines head coach Eddie Ford.

Pringle said he wanted to go ahead and make the decision now to slow down recruitment.

At 6′7 and well over 300 pounds, Pringle will be a candidate to see the field early for the Gamecocks.
