Lancaster High School senior linebacker Desmond Ricks has given S.C. State University a commitment to sign with the Bulldogs.
The NCAA national signing day for football is Feb. 1, 2017. Verbal pledges are non-binding to the school.
Ricks, a three-year member of the LHS varsity, was a two-year starter for the Bruins.
Ricks, for the Bruins’ 5-6 season under third-year head coach Bobby Collins, notched 88 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, three sacks, two forced fumbles, two blocked passes, a fumble recovery and blocked extra point.
