Raymond Doby commits to South Carolina


Three-star forward Raymond Doby of St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield, Wisconsin, near Milwaukee, has committed to South Carolina. The decision was reported to Scott Phillips of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk.

The 6-foot-7 Doby had previously committed to DePaul University, but was released from his letter of intent this spring and visited South Carolina this weekend. Shortly after the official visit, he made his commitment.

South Carolina has now added six players this recruiting season and Doby is an athletic wing who can make open shots and even play both forward positions. He joins fellow incoming recruits P.J. Dozier, Jamall Gregory and others. Needless to say, Gamecocks head coach Frank Martin has plenty to be excited about as his team is now in a position to be a little noisier in the ever tough SEC.

Hopefully, Doby can be a big part of that turnaround.

South Carolina has gone 45-54 (15-39 SEC) in three years under Martin and has yet to participate in any postseason play. The Gamecocks have not made the NCAA Tournament since 2004 — when Dave Odom was coach — and has not made significant progress in the big dance since 1973, a year in which the team reached the Sweet Sixteen.
