The South Carolina Gamecocks lost the recruiting war for highly-sought-after defensive tackle Michael Hill to the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Hill gave his pledge last week and this was a big loss to USC.
The Gamecocks pressed hard to land him but the young man followed his love for the Buckeyes and gave Coach Urban Meyer the verbal pledge.
Just watch this video and you see the talent...
Hill chose OSU over Clemson, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida and LSU. He took visits to all of those schools plus Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Michigan.
Good luck to the Pendleton, S.C. native. However, in saying that I do hope USC sees OSU in a bowl again and beats them like the last two times.
