South Carolina beats out ACC school for new commitment
South Carolina landed its fourth commitment on the offensive line on Thursday, as 3-star tackle Pete Leota pledged to the Gamecocks, according to reports.
The 6-foot-4, 300-pound product out of Asheville, N.C., announced his decision during a ceremony at Asheville High School.
Leota, who reported nine offers, chose South Carolina over Virginia Tech. He was in attendance for the Gamecocks’ home game against Kentucky on Sept. 12 as part of an unofficial visit.
Leota is rated as the No. 49 player in North Carolina.
