USC has moved to the pole position with DB Keisean Nixon of Arizona Western JC and he has set his official visit with the Gamecocks for November 19th.
“South Carolina is the favorite for sure,” Nixon said. “I’m just liking the program and Will Muschamp is a big plus because he develops a lot of first rounders. The South Carolina visit is going to be big for me. I’m excited. My boys are Jamarcus King and Steven Montac and we’re going to take over the SEC with our secondary.”
Nixon said he talked with USC secondary coach and defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson a couple of days ago and he continued to make a strong pitch for him.
“He was saying I would have an immediate impact at corner,” Nixon said. “I like it (playing style) a lot. They’re aggressive.”
Nixon has set December 17th for his decision but he did not discount the idea of committing to the Gamecocks on his visit.
“I don’t know,” he said. “Anything can happen.”
Nixon also is scheduled for an official visit to Missouri November 26th and he continues to talk with Mississippi State.
This season Nixon has 5 interceptions along with 4 passes broken up. He also has 18 tackles.
One side note, former Clemson defensive back Jefferie Gibson is now a receiver at Arizona Western and is second on the team with 11 for 211 yards and 5 touchdowns.
