COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - South Carolina will soon have another McKie (MAK-ee) on the basketball court as the son of all-time leading scorer BJ McKie has committed to the program.

BJ McKie said on Twitter his son Justin chose the Gamecocks and new coach Frank Martin starting next fall. BJ McKie played at South Carolina from 1995 through 1999 and finished with 2,119 points, first on the school's career list. He is the Gamecocks only player in history to surpass 2,000 points.

Justin McKie is a 6-foot-4 guard who plays at Irmo High. He also received college interest from Memphis, Murray State and Winthrop among others.

BJ McKie is an assistant coach at Charleston Southern. He helped the Gamecocks to two NCAA tournaments and their only Southeastern Conference regular-season championship in 1997.
