Craig is a 3-star cornerback from Mobile, Alabama. He attends Baker High School.
According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Craig is the No. 103 cornerback in the country for the class of 2021.
He chose the Gamecocks over offers from Mississippi State, Oregon State and Southern Miss.
Craig is one of three defensive backs currently in South Carolina’s 2021 class. The Gamecocks have also signed 3-star JUCO cornerbacks Marcellas Dial and Isaiah Norris.
South Carolina’s recruiting class is currently ranked No. 84 nationally according to 247Sports Composite rankings — not bad considering South Carolina turned over its entire coaching staff at the end of the 2020 season. New head coach Shane Beamer and his staff will be aiming for a much higher ranking in 2022.
Here’s highlights from Craig’s senior season at Baker High School:
