Well, L.J. Peak surprised us as we thought he was a sure-fire Gamecock basketball recruit and I guess for a second he was. After that, he switched his pledge to Georgetown which is sort of a shocker, especially since he never visited the campus.
I guess it is for the best as it is not the first big-time recruit from South Carolina to leave the state. Let's hope it is the last and this means that USC needs to start winning as that is the only way to correct the issue. Winning cures everything, right?
For Peak, we wish him happiness and whatever issues he had to leave behind in Gaffney does not follow him.
For USC basketball, we hope this fuels the fire to prove many, including Peak, that the Gamecocks hoops program is on the rise and about to take the SEC by storm. We believe in Frank Martin. We believe in the Gamecocks basketball team and the team will win without Peak.
