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."
