Shane Beamer’s South Carolina program just picked up another much-needed commitment from a defensive back as Rockwall-Heath High School standout Peyton Williams has announced his pledge to join the Gamecocks.

Williams picked South Carolina over scholarship offers from Florida State, Colorado, Maryland and Michigan State, among others.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Williams is currently rated as a three-star prospect and the No. 65 safety recruit in the country according to 247Sports. Williams does not yet have a 247Sports Composite Ranking.

Williams becomes the seventh prospect to commit to South Carolina in the 2022 recruiting cycle and the third defensive back to pledge to the program.
