South Carolina picked up its fourth commitment of May when offensive line prospect Jozie Milton committed on Friday to the Gamecocks.

Milton (6-3, 294) of Clinton, La., is the Gamecocks' 11th pledge for the 2015 class.

"I committed to South Carolina today," he said on Twitter. "#gamecocks it's gonna be fun!!"

The three-star prospect plays offensive tackle for his high school but has the skills to move inside a couple of spots. He has more than 20 offers, and the Gamecocks are recruiting him to play center.

"They said they are only taking one center and I'm the top guy for that position," Milton said. "I like it there a lot. I've heard a lot about the fan base. And coach Spurrier, that's huge. And if I play center, I may be able to last longer in the game."

Milton is USC's second offensive line pledge for the class and was recruited by defensive line coach Deke Adams.

Other offers for Milton include Mississippi State, Arkansas, Arizona State, Oklahoma State, South Florida and Southern Miss.
