Will Muschamp and the Gamecocks were able to scoop up one of the top recruits all thanks to Jimbo Fisher.

Israel Mukuamu, a four/three-star defensive back prospect committed to South Carolina on Saturday. Last June he committed to Florida State. But once Jimbo Fisher left for Texas A&M he re-opened his recruitment.

Muschamp and defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson wasted no time and went on in-house visit to Louisiana to see Israel.

This is homecoming for Israel since he played at Berkeley High School as a freshman in Moncks Corner. He played last season at Bossier City High in Lousiana.

This is another huge pickup for the now 19 members of the 2018 recruting class for the Gamecocks.
