USC target OL Jerry Drake Jr. of Palm Beach Gardens, FL picked up offers Tuesday from Michigan State and UCLA.
USC target DB Keisean Nixon of Arizona Western JC will visit Oregon State this weekend. He originally was scheduled to visit Missouri this weekend. He visited USC last weekend.
DB Naytron Culpepper of Miami, who took an official visit to USC last weekend, said he’s not heard much from the Gamecocks since then but he still considers them his favorite. His team is still playing and he’s not set up any other visits.
2018 DE Xavier Thomas of Wilson will be at Clemson Saturday.
ATH Jonathan Sims of Palmetto Prep has committed to North Greenville.
DE Sean McGonical of Myrtle Beach was at USC last Saturday for the Western Carolina game. McGonical has not been offered by any schools but is drawing interest from several. “Since I’m a late recruit I primarily have been recruited by the Ivy League teams, Cornell, Penn, Princeton, and Bucknell. However, Coach (Lance) Thompson (USCP got a hold of my mid-season highlight clip and really liked it. I’m an undersized defensive end right now but I run 4.6 so I think they see me at outside linebacker. My dad played offensive tackle at West Virginia and he’s 6’6 so I may still have some size coming my way.” McGonical said he had 17.5 sacks this season.
2018 DB Marcus Caldwell Jr. of Clemmons, NC has received mail from Clemson and USC but no heavy interest at this point. He has offers from Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Louisville and East Carolina.
