Kacinas pledges to Gamecocks

South Carolina picked up its second commitment of the night moments after its first when post Mindaugas Kacinas (Wichita, Kan./Word of Life) pledged to head coach Frank Martin while finishing up his official visit on Thursday night.

Kacinas quickly followed the commitment of wing Thaddeus Hall when he told Martin he wanted to be a Gamecock. Kacinas picked the Gamecocks over Wichita State, Wake Forest and Boston College.

Kacinas arrived on his official visit on Wednesday and it was expected that he would commit prior to his departure.

South Carolina now has three post players expected to be on the 2012-13 roster in Kacinas, sophomore R.J. Slawson and sophomore Carlton Geathers.
