South Carolina picked up a big commitment, literally, from the state's top offensive line prospect yesterday, as 6-foot-6, 300-pound Brandon Shell (Goose Creek, S.C./Goose Creek) committed to the Gamecocks. "I am happy for him because that's where he has been leaning all along," said Goose Creek coach Chuck Reedy. "He called me yesterday and said he was ready to commit to South Carolina." Shell, a three-star prospect, originally planned on taking two or three visits, but he's shy and didn't like the attention that came with being on the one most coveted offensive line prospects in the country. So he decided to end things early.
