 Jason Cudd, a 7-foot-1 center out of Socastee, made his official visit to South Carolina over the weekend and Monday made his official decision with a commitment to Frank Martin. The commitment was confirmed by a source close to the team.

Cudd also considered offers from East Carolina and Tulane.

Cudd will officially be the fourth 7-footer in USC history, following Mike Brittain (1982-85), Danny Traylor (1971-73) and freshman Khadim Gueye. Jeff Roulston (1989-92) was listed at 7 feet but was really 6-11, according to former sports information director Brian Binette.

Cudd said after his visit that he liked everything he saw around the school and the program and felt he would be an excellent fit in Martin's scheme.
