Chaun Gresham, a 6-foot-3, 205 pound linebacker from Apalachee who committed to South Carolina earlier this month, plans to attend the Gamecocks’ home SEC opener. “I’m going to the Georgia game on Sept. 13th,” said Gresham, an AJC’s Georgia Top 150 selection. Gresham, who originally committed to Georgia Tech before shifting his allegiance to South Carolina earlier this month, said the Gamecock coaching staff remains thrilled with his decision. “They’re really excited,” Gresham said. “Their excitement is probably the same as it was before I committed. “They’re always sending me handwritten letters. They’re usually signed by [South Carolina assistant] coach Shane Beamer.”

Apalachee linebacker Chaun Gresham abruptly switched his commitment from Georgia Tech to South Carolina. "I just felt like it was the right thing to do, " Gresham said. "I loved everything about South Carolina camp last month, and haven't been able to stop thinking about the place ever since." Gresham said he talked over the phone with Georgia Tech assistant Brian Jean-Mary to let him know about his change of heart. "[Tech] was disappointed with me, but they respected my decision." Gresham is the nephew of George Rogers, who won the 1980 Heisman Trophy at South Carolina. However, Gresham, who is a member of the AJC's Super Southern 100 and ranked as the country's No. 47 linebacker by Rivals, said his famous family connection had no effect on switching to the Gamecocks. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Gresham also holds offers from Alabama, Clemson, Tennessee and Vanderbilt, among others.
