DE Aaron Sterling of Tucker, GA, a former Alabama commitment, did not take any official visits during the season or in December saving all of his trips to January.
Plans for those trips are still in the works according to his coach as Sterling considers USC, NC State, Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama. And USC is a definite for one of the visits according to coach Bryan Lamar.
“I know they are very interested in him,” Lamar said of the Gamecocks. “All the schools that’s recruiting him want him pretty bad. He’s a really good player. Kentucky just called me about him.
“They are all on him pretty hard. He’s a phenomenal player, strong and fast. About as fast a kid as I’ve seen on the edge. He can really run and he’s really quick.”
This season Sterling had 15.5 sacks and over 20 tackles for loss. “He had a really good year for us,” Lamar said.
Sterling is not indicating a favorite. As for USC’s chances, “They are right in the mix,” Lamar said.
