Gamecocks secure commitment from three-star DB Christopher Hatfield for 2025

Christopher, a 6-foot-4 defensive back from Ludowici, Georgia, chose the Gamecocks over offers from Georgia Tech, West Virginia and Georgia State. The Gamecocks recognized Christopher’s potential early in the recruiting process and made an offer after his recruitment gained momentum. His recruitment took off after exposure from Sports Illustrated’s Brooks Austin, who attended one of Christopher’s games last year for his YouTube series “Friday Night Lights.” Austin’s scouting for the SI All-American rankings spotlighted Christopher’s talent, and a few posts on Twitter caught the attention of college coaches. The Gamecocks were among the first to notice this hidden gem.

In 2023, Christopher demonstrated his versatility as a two-way player, taking snaps at both cornerback and wide receiver. On defense, he had a total of 27 tackles and 3 interceptions. On offense, he caught 9 passes for 195 yards and 5 touchdowns.
