DeMatha standout running back MarShawn Lloyd announced his commitment to South Carolina on Monday afternoon.
The rising senior picked the Gamecocks over Alabama, Maryland, Penn State, Clemson, Florida, Michigan and others.
MarShawn Lloyd is cut from the same cloth as Mike Davis. Both 5-9, all muscle and just as likely to run over a defender than side step. First workhorse back #Gamecocks will have in 6 seasons.
Ryan Hilinski + Lloyd in 2020 is 🔥
