Four-star Mitch SEC bound

Connor Mitch has committed to South Carolina, the four-star quarterback from Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield told ESPN on Tuesday via text message.

Mitch said on Sunday that he was close to a decision and was primarily considering the Gamecocks and LSU while Auburn was trying to make a late push.

The Gamecocks now have nine commitments for the 2013 class.

Mitch also had offers from Alabama, East Carolina, LSU, North Carolina, N.C. State, Rutgers, USF, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, West Virginia and others.

He is considered the 13th best pocket passer in the nation.
