Versatile Georgia athlete Vicari Swain commits to South Carolina for 2023 class

·2 min read

South Carolina is ending its summer on a high note.

USC landed a verbal commitment from three-star athlete Vicari Swain on Friday over finalists that also included Mississippi State, Maryland, Duke, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt.

The Carrollton, Georgia product is rated the No. 763 player and No. 67 athlete in the 2023 class, per the 247Sports Composite.

Swain has the versatility to play either defensive back or receiver at the college level, though it remains to be seen where he sticks. He played both sides of the ball for Central High School as a junior, recording 855 yards receiving and eight touchdowns on 47 catches. Swain added another 28 tackles, six interceptions — three of which he returned for touchdowns — one fumble recovery and a kick block.

He becomes the sixth player from Georgia to commit to the Gamecocks this cycle, joining four-star running back Dontavious Braswell, four-star offensive lineman Trovon Baugh, three-star safety Jalon Kilgore, three-star receiver CJ Adams and three-star offensive lineman Jatavius Shivers.

South Carolina now has 18 commitments in a 2023 class that ranked No. 18 nationally and seventh in the Southeastern Conference, per 247Sports’ Team Recruiting Rankings.
