The first recruiting visit weekend held at South Carolina State University has produced five verbal commitments, four from the state of Georgia.

Tight end Zane Fields (6-2, 235 lbs.) of Lovejoy High School, defensive linemen Dayshawn Taylor (5-11, 240) of Lincoln County High School and Greg Newell (6-2, 220) of the Atlanta Sports Academy and wide receiver Chris Trimmings (5-11, 180) of Brunswick High School were the four Peach State natives who made tentative plans to sign with the Bulldogs.

The lone Palmetto State native out of the three who visited this weekend who gave a verbal commitment was Blythewood High School quarterback Kylen Binn. The 6-5, 210-pound North-South All-Star completed 123-215 passes for 1,386 yards and 13 interceptions and rushed for 248 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Bengals under former head coach and Bulldog alumnus Reggie Kennedy (now at Sumter High School).

S.C. State will hold its final recruiting tour this weekend.
