John Gilreath, a high school baseball standout and former Lancaster resident, has committed to play baseball at the University of South Carolina.
Gilreath, 15 and a sophomore at Northwestern High School in Rock Hill, gave the Gamecocks a verbal pledge last week.
The 5-10, 160-pounder is regarded as one of the top pitchers in the state for the class of 2018.
He is rated by Diamond Prospects, a state baseball scouting service, as the state’s No. 2 prospect for the Class of 2018.
