4-star corner Chris Lammons commits to South Carolina over Wisconsin

Bud Elliott (SB Nation)

It was a Capital One Bowl rematch for the stud cornerback from Florida, who's made his National Signing Day decision.

Consensus four-star cornerback Chris Lammons has committed to play for South Carolina in college. Lammons, a top prospect from Florida, also had scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Florida State, Florida, Ohio State, Miami, Arkansas, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. His final choice for the former Florida commit came down to the Gamecocks and Badgers.

The 5'10, 172-pounder played his high school ball at Plantation High School in Ft. Lauderdale. He is the No. 205 overall prospect in the class, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, as well as the No. 21 player at his position and the No. 28 player in Florida.

SB Nation's Bud Elliott scouted Lammons:

Lammons is really, really athletic. He's also quite raw, given that he plays quarterback for his high school team. Living in Florida, I've been lucky enough to see him play cornerback at several 7-on-7 events, and have come away very impressed.

One of Lammons' best attributes is his quickness. He is able to reach top speed almost immediately, which helps to cut down on receiver separation. His speed is good, but is not in the elite or track category.

While I haven't measured, Lammons' arms, they do appear longer than those of a typical 5'9.5/5'10 cornerback recruit. He has wide shoulders and should be able to play at at least 185 pounds.

There are still some questions remaining about Lammons. I haven't seen him flip his hips like an elite cornerback. I also don't know anything about his instincts to this point as a defensive back, because the 7-on-7 former doesn't lend itself to that. The same goes for tackling.

Lammons could benefit from a redshirt at the BCS level, but could also be a solid special teams contributor and perhaps a threat in the return game early on in his career.

Of the major services, Scout rates him the lowest, placing him at No. 256 overall and 29th at his position. ESPN and Rivals both consider Lammons a top-15 athlete in the class, and ESPN also considers him the No. 86 overall prospect.
