The South Carolina Gamecocks football team started the week off well with landing a pledge from McDonough (Ga.) Henry County ATH Chris Moody. He has pledged to sign with South Carolina on National Signing Day rather than Vanderbilt.
As our crystal bowl indicated, we felt strongly that he was going to switch from being a Vanderbilt guy to a Gamecock following his official visit over the weekend.
Defensive Coach Lorenzo Ward likes Moody as a boundary cornerback or could see time at safety down the line. He is the sixth defensive back to commit in the class. He also is expected to be given a chance under center in a Wildcat package. Loads of credit goes to Coach Ward for sealing the deal with Moody.
Moody, a three-star prospect, is the No. 72 athlete as ranked by 247Sports and the No. 65 player in the state of Georgia.
Welcome Chris to Gamecock Nation!
