(WVUE) - There's a reason they call them verbal commitments, they're non-binding. South Carolina learned that this morning. Dutchtown offensive lineman Lloyd Cushenberry flipped his commitment from the Gamecocks to LSU this morning.
Nola.com/Times-Picayune recruiting expert Jimmy Smith broke the story.
Smith wrote: "The one-time South Carolina commitment received an offer late Tuesday evening, after a calculated recruitment from LSU leading up to National Signing Day. The 6-3, 310-pound Dutchtown notified Mississippi State, the school he was intending on signing with Wednesday morning."
