DE Stephon Wynn Jr. of Anderson and IMG Academy was considered a lock to Clemson by most going into this recruiting season because his father played for the Tigers. But at Sunday’s EPT Showcase at Ridge View High School, Wynn told Hale McGranahan of SEC Country he’s a lot more involved with USC than the Tigers at this point. Wynn said he’s visited the Gamecocks at least six times since Will Muschamp took over and another visit is possible. As for Clemson, Wynn told McGranahan the Tigers aren’t that involved any more. More specifically, Wynn told David Hood of TigerNet the contact with Clemson just isn’t there. “I haven’t really been talking to Clemson much. Me and Coach (Todd) Bates haven’t really clicked. I was always good with Coach (Marion) Hobby and Coach (Dan Brooks), but I am not like that with Coach Bates. At this point, Clemson is out of consideration.” Wynn said he’s also looking at Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State and plans to visit them this summer. LSU and Tennessee also are involved.

I like the defensive backs coach there. He could be a big part of getting me to the next level. He said he loved my size and the way I ran to the ball every play. I’m open minded right now. Which ever school I could early enroll in and play early would be the best for me.” McMillian said he hasn’t taken any visits yet but plans to take several this summer.
