Rosendo Louis had been committed to Florida State football since Aug. 15.
A steady recruiting effort from South Carolina’s staff led to the 6-foot-1, 225-pound linebacker from Deerfield Beach, Fla., switching his allegiance Wednesday and opting to sign with the Gamecocks.
Louis is a three-star prospect, ranked 427th nationally in the 247Sports Composite. He’s the 74th-best player in Florida and No. 23 inside linebacker.
He committed to the staff of Jimbo Fisher, now at Texas A&M. Willie Taggart is now leading the Seminoles and has yet to get his defensive staff in place.
