Shaq Roland picks South Carolina 

July, 11, 2011
The Gamecocks have been on quite an offensive recruiting roll. Since the end of last week, South Carolina has added commitments from a trio of receivers in Kwinton Smith (Dillon, S.C./Dillon), Jody Fuller (Sun Valley, S.C./Monroe) and Shaq Roland (Lexington, S.C./Lexington). Roland, who's No. 46 in the ESPNU 150 and the No. 8 athlete, committed on Saturday.

"South Carolina is getting one of the best receivers in the country," said Lexington coach Scott Early. "He's the ultimate competitor with unlimited speed and leaping ability. Shaq is a complete player."

Roland, 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, is such a talented athlete that he will have an opportunity to even play basketball for South Carolina.
