COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) First-year South Carolina coach Lamont Paris has signed five-star recruit and one-time North Carolina commitment, Gregory "GG" Jackson.
The 6-foot-9, 210-pound Jackson was considered one of the top prospects for the 2023 recruiting class. But the school said he has reclassified to 2022 and will be eligible to play for the Gamecocks this season.
Jackson is from Columbia and played at Ridge View High. He has said he had a strong connection with former Gamecocks coach Frank Martin, who was dismissed from the program after 10 seasons this past March.
