Why Elmore Chose South Carolina:
‘I chose USC for a few different reasons. First, and foremost, it is a great academic university, which offers an excellent political science program. Second, I really like Coach Blackmon. Coach Blackmon is a great guy and two of my fellow recruits he is bringing in are good friends of mine. My goal was always to attend an academically challenging university with a nationally competitive golf program; USC provides both of these opportunities.’

Coach Blackmon Comments on Elmore[apos]s Signing
‘Baker gives true meaning to the term student-athlete. He has been regarded for several years as one of the state[apos]s finest players and has also excelled in the classroom. His talent, lofty goals, determination and work ethic attracted my attention early. We[apos]ve only seen a glimpse of this outstanding young man[apos]s potential.’
