Jake Bentley, a four-star quarterback out of Alabama, announced Thursday on Twitter that he’s headed to Columbia to play for Will Muschamp and the Gamecocks.

Bentley, who is entering his senior year, held offers from in-state powers Alabama and Auburn, as well as Stanford, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Arkansas and Nebraska. He threw for 2,834 yards, 28 touchdowns and just eight interceptions as a junior.

It should be noted that Bentley is the son of South Carolina running backs coach Bobby Bentley, who also coached on Gus Malzahn’s staff with Muschamp at Auburn.
