South Carolina is entering Year 1 of the Lamont Paris era after Paris was hired to take over for Frank Martin following the 2021-22 season.

Now, the Gamecocks have scored a huge win via the transfer portal, bringing in a coveted transfer guard from Ohio State.

As you can see below, Meechie Johnson took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to announce he was committing to the Gamecocks:

Johnson was a 4-star recruit out of Cleveland in Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class. This past season, he appeared in 26 games for the Buckeyes, making 5 starts.

He averaged 4.4 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game for the Buckeyes. We’ll see what sort of role he carves out for himself in Columbia.
