Kight Dallas commits to South Carolina

4/5/2012

South Carolina picked up commitment No. 4 today with the addition of Kight Dallas (Decatur, Ga./Decatur). Dallas, 6-foot-0 and 208 pounds, is a linebacker prospect.

“I committed earlier today, and I am just leaving Columbia right now,” Dallas said. “I just love it and so does my mom. I’m a mamma’s boy, so I have to make her happy. South Carolina is close to home and it’s the SEC. I like their defense, the coaches and the depth situation is great. I can certainly earn early playing time.”

Dallas believes the Gamecocks are getting a versatile ‘backer that can help them at a few positions.

“I can play inside or out,” Dallas said. “But I really think they want me as a Will. I’m the type of linebacker that loves to play the run and I know I have to improve in coverage. I have good size, speed and I play fast. I just love the game of football.”

Dallas committed to South Carolina over scholarship offers from Auburn, Wake Forest, North Carolina and N.C. State.
