The former Gamecock had offers from many of the bluebloods coming out of high school -- and now he's headed to Bloomington.

Wesley Green never won an SEC east title with South Carolina. Today, he signed on with the reigning champs.

Kevin WIlson's shown over the past the last couple season he's not afraid to dive into SEC country to take a transfer or two -- and that's exactly what he did today in adding the Lithonia, Georgia native. Green redshirted and didn't see the field for Steve Spurrier's team, but he looked to be a high-major talent coming out of high school. He chose South Carolina over Georgia, Ole Miss, USC, Ohio State, Alabama, and others.

Here's the full release from IU athletics. We'll have more on this later.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson announced on Monday the addition of cornerback Wesley Green to the program. The 5-10, 175-pounder will not be eligible this year after transferring from the University of South Carolina, where he redshirted the 2014 season.

"We recruited Wesley; Coach Brandon Shelby has a strong relationship with him and he contacted us when he left South Carolina," Wilson said. "We welcome him to our program. He's a talented young man and he will be a quality contributor."

Green graduated from Martin Luther King High School in Lithonia, Ga., and chose the Gamecocks over Georgia and Ole Miss. He recorded five interceptions as a senior.

Ranked a four-star prospect by ESPN.com, Rivals.com, Scout.com and 247Sports.com, ESPN.com rated Green the No. 9 prospect in Georgia, the No. 13 cornerback nationally and the No. 120 prospect overall. Rivals.com listed him as No. 17 in Georgia, the No. 17 cornerback and No. 208 overall.

Scout.com placed Green as the No. 21 cornerback and No. 209 overall. 247Sports.com recognized him No. 13 in Georgia, the No. 15 cornerback and No. 185 overall.

Born on Sept. 29, 1995, Green is a criminal justice major.
