Thursday was pretty special for the South Carolina Gamecocks on the recruiting trail, gaining commitments from Devin Washington, David Johnson and Pharoh Cooper.

Johnson, a three-star defender from Lithonia, Ga., High School committed earlier in the day. He is considered a prospect similar to Eric Norwood or Melvin Ingram:

South Carolina will know just what to do with the 6-foot-1, 250-pound Johnson.

Washington came next, and the recruiting night was capped with the addition of Pharoh Cooper, who also happens to be a member of the all-name team. Cooper stars for Havelock, N.C., High School, and also holds offers from the East Carolina Pirates and the N.C. State Wolfpack.

At 5-foot-11 and 181 pounds, Cooper has good size for a defensive back, though he can also play receiver.
