Chose the University of South Carolina because: “South Carolina instantly felt like home when I stepped on campus. Coach Shelley, Coach Jamie, and Coach Clark have created a family environment within the team, which is very important to me. South Carolina offers lots of majors and helps student athletes on and off the field, from tutors to study hall hours. I believe I can become the best person, player, and student I can be at South Carolina.”
