OL Jerry Drake Jr. (6-6 310) of Palm Beach Gardens, FL was recently offered by USC and will take an official visit with the Gamecocks this weekend for the Texas A&M game.
Along with USC, Drake said he has recently been hearing from Mississippi State, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, North Carolina, South Florida and West Virginia.
Drake said he communicates regularly with USC offensive line coach Shawn Elliott and head coach Will Muschamp.
“I mean, I like the school. I like their football program a lot, like, the trainers and the way coach Elliott coaches,” Drake said. “I want to be in school for engineering, so I’m going to check out the school for the academics and the engineering program. That, and the school as a whole, like the community and if the team gets along.”
Drake hopes to have his decision before December or January.
