Donell Stanley is a Gamecock.
Widely considered to be the state's top-rated offensive lineman, Stanley made his announcement on Friday at his high school in Latta, S.C., choosing South Carolina over finalists Clemson and Alabama.
The Gamecocks had long been considered the team to beat for the 6-5, 320-pound offensive guard.
He's rated No. 12 nationally at his position by both Rivals and ESPN.
