Tyrone Haughton of Miami became South Carolina's third basketball commitment for the 2012 class Tuesday when he contacted assistant coach Neill Berry and made his pledge to the Gamecocks.

The 6-9 Haughton picked the Gamecocks over offers from Connecticut, Alabama, Virginia Tech and Marshall.USC was his only official visit, and that took place in September.

Haughton can play the five or the four position in the frontcourt. He says the best part of his game is dunking, though he can face up and he does have a strong hook shot. He joins point guard Ian Baker and shooting guard Carlos Morris in USC's 2012 class to sign next week.
