South Carolina continues to gain momentum on the recruiting trail with the latest news coming from in-state defensive back O’Donnell Fortune, who just became the ninth recruit to commit to the Gamecocks in the 2020 recruiting cycle.
The Sumter High School prospect has flown under the radar so far during the 2020 recruiting cycle but he’s obviously shown enough to have Will Muschamp and his coaching staff extend an offer to the 6-foot-2 cornerback. In addition to landing an offer from the Gamecocks, Virginia, Colorado and UCF have all offered the Sumter native, in addition to Hugh Freeze’s Liberty program.
Muschamp confirmed the news with his trademark “Spurs Up!” message on Twitter. Fortune announced the news after Muschamp posted his “Spurs Up!” message to Gamecock Nation:
“First off, I would like to thank the man above for all that he’s done for me and the abilities I have today. I also want to thank all the coaches that help me become the player I am today. Last but not least, I will like to thank my parents, siblings, family and friends for being there through this entire journey without y’all, none of this will be happening, with that being said, I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of South Carolina #SpursUp”
Following this news, the Gamecocks now hold nine commitments in the team’s latest recruiting class. Here is an updated look of each pledge Muschamp’s program currently holds:
