Darrin Horn closing in on another recruit

Although the South Carolina Gamecocks did not have any incoming freshmen this year (after Atlanta-area native Darius Morrow de-committed), new coach Darrin Horn has been working hard to bring in talent for the 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 seasons.

First, Horn went hard after Lakeem Jackson, the #139-ranked small forward in the class of 2009, and got his commitment over the summer. Now, it looks likely that Eric Smith, a 6' point guard, will soon visit Columbia and commit to Horn for the 2010 class. Smith is a junior this year at South Carolina's Mullins High School.

Georgia was reportedly interested in Smith, and he had previously visited Clemson.

Sounds like a good get for South Carolina.
