5-star Georgia QB Gunner Stockton announces his college commitment
Say what you will about Will Muschamp’s inconsistent tenure at South Carolina but the Gamecock coach has landed some elite quarterbacks during his time running the program in Columbia.
While South Carolina has landed several high school All-American signal-callers under Muschamp’s leadership, the Gamecocks may have just landed the best one yet — and they beat out Georgia to do it.
Five-star prospect Gunner Stockton, the nation’s No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the 2022 recruiting cycle, just announced his commitment to South Carolina over Georgia. 247Sports Composite Rankings list Stockton as the No. 30 overall recruit in the 2022 recruiting cycle.
The Tiger, Ga., native follows in the footsteps of Luke Doty (rated as a four-star prospect and a top 100 overall player in the 2020 cycle), Ryan Hilinski (rated as the No. 2 pro-style passer and a top 100 prospect in the 2019 cycle), Dakereon Joyner (rated as a four-star QB in the 2018 cycle) and Brandon McIlwain and Jake Bentley (both four-star prospects in the 2016 recruiting cycle).
Stockton is the first commitment to pledge to South Carolina’s 2022 recruiting class.
