DB Grant Haley (5-10 180) of Atlanta attended USC’s junior day and is very interested in the Gamecocks at this point. “I liked it a lot,” said Haley who has a Gamecock offer. “I liked the atmosphere and the stadium. Football seems like a priority. The coaches seem like they care about each player. I like coach Ward a lot. We’re getting a better relationship. He knows what he’s doing. If I go there, I’d have a chance to play.” Haley also has offers from Florida and Tennessee. Vanderbilt, Georgia, Duke, Georgia Tech and Alabama are showing interest. Haley said he might go to Georgia’s junior day February 16th. Haley said man coverage is one of his strengths. Last season he had 7 interceptions to go along with 40 tackles.

DB Logan Sedergren of Concord, NC has received interest from Clemson, Wake Forest, NC State, North Carolina, Duke, Charlotte and Richmond among others. He attended his first junior day this past Saturday at Charlotte. “It’s really nice,” said Sedergran. “The facilities are amazing. They’re all brand new and built specifically for football. Plus, it’s close to home which would make it a nice place to play.” Richmond is next up for him. This summer he plans to attend several one-day camps including Clemson but plans to visit the Upstate prior to that. “I’m going to go down there with one of my coaches so that we can talk to the some of the Clemson coaches,” he said. Wake Forest, NC State, Charlotte and Richmond have all had coaches stop by his school to see him.

WR Blake Bone of Woodruff attended USC for a junior day last Saturday and came away impressed. “I really liked the environment,” said Bone. “I like the campus, the facilities and the dorm rooms…stuff like that.” He spoke with Steve Spurrier, Jr. and Shawn Elliott while on campus. “They’re telling me that USC would be a good place for me to go to school,” he said. “They said for a replacement for Alshon Jeffery and I that I have that size they’re looking for. They said they could get me the ball a lot.” His favorites are USC, Georgia, Ole Miss, North Carolina and Alabama in no order. USC, Ole Miss and Clemson are his offers. “I haven’t heard much from Clemson,” said Bone. “I get letters but I haven’t really talked to them on the phone too much.” Bone would like to visit the rest of his favorites but has not scheduled a visit. He did not give a time frame for a commitment.

PK Max Huggins of Myrtle Beach has decided to be a preferred walk-on at USC.  He had an offer from Presbyterian.  Clemson also showed interest as a walk-on.  He booted a 57 yard field goal in a game. This season Huggins was 13-17 on field goals and 43-49 on extra points.  Huggins also averaged nearly 40 yards per punt.
