Thursday was an emotional day for Darius Douglas and his family, as the Berkeley High School star quarterback's college football dreams came true.

Douglas signed with the University of South Carolina as a preferred walk-on, after an impressive senior season with the Stags.

A dual-threat option QB, Douglas caught the Gamecocks coaching staff's attention after impressing in the Shrine Bowl and off-season 7-on-7 passing camps.

Douglas's mother and grandmother were in tears as he signed his National Letter of Intent Thursday.

Douglas says coaches have told him he will be a quarterback when he reports to camp this summer.
