Jacksonville, Fla. DE Blake McClain will sign with South Carolina: http://t.co/r2nl2Yv1UK— Michael Bruntz (@michaelbruntz) February 5, 2014
McClain wanted to be a Husker very badly. However, Mom and Dad ended up being concerned about the distance from Jacksonville to Lincoln, and it's a much shorter drive to South Carolina from home.
With the Slade decommitment, this does hurt. How much, we won't really know till the end of the day.
