South Carolina loses a big cornerback recruit.

Georgia won a major recruiting victory over South Carolina Tuesday, flipping cornerback Brendan Langley from the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Langley is 6'1 and 188 pounds, and a consensus four-star recruit out of Marietta (Ga.) Kell High School.

From the ESPN story:

Teammate and safety Quincy Mauger has been selling Langley on joining him in Athens since Mauger himself committed to Georgia in July.

"He is pushing me pretty hard, but he knows the whole situation, so he is supportive of anything I choose," Langley said after his third visit to Georgia on Nov. 3. "Basically -- and I kind of like it -- he tells me I have to do what is right for me and that I will be successful wherever I go. Then why not be successful with your best friend?"

Georgia now has 28 commitments in the class of 2013. South Carolina's class sits at 21.
