Gamecocks land RB Mike Davis

Although Army All-American running back Mike Davis (Stone Mountain, Ga./Stephenson) had planned to announce his decision on signing day, the 5-foot-10, 200-pound four-star tailback decided to instead go public on twitter Friday night.

"I committed to South Carolina," Davis tweeted while on campus in Columbia for his official visit.

The former Florida pledge rushed for 1,918 yards and 21 touchdowns this year. His addition gives the Gamecocks 24 commitments for the 2012 class, including 11 from Georgia and three from Stephenson High School. The news comes shortly after another running back, Todd Gurley (Tarboro, N.C./Tarboro), announced his commitment to the University of Georgia, who Davis was also considering.
