Dozier picks South Carolina over hoops powerhouses

P.J. Dozier is a four-star basketball recruit, he's ranked 21st in the ESPN 100, he's the son of former Gamecock hoops player Perry Dozier and the brother of Asia Dozier, a junior on Dawn Staley's women's team. 

And now, P.J. is a Gamecock himself. 

Wednesday afternoon at Spring Valley High School, the class of 2015 product announced his decision to play for head coach Frank Martin and the South Carolina men's basketball team. 

In the end, Dozier chose the Gamecocks over Louisville, but he also received offers from college basketball powerhouses like Michigan, Georgetown and North Carolina. 

Dozier is the highest-ranked recruit Martin has signed in during his three-year tenure in Columbia.

"South Carolina wouldn't be in the mix if I didn't feel like they had the players and coaches," Dozier said. "I'm definitely excited to play along with them and get this going."
