DB Marcus Maye (6-1 195) of Melbourne, FL has offers from Florida, Florida State, Miami, LSU, and Alabama and is hearing from USC, Ole Miss, Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Georgia, Duke, and Stanford among others. Maye says the Gamecocks interest him. “I like the way they play,” he said. “They have an incredible coaching staff with Steve Spurrier and all. They play in the SEC…they play Gamecock football.” Maye visited Florida and Miami for their junior days and says both trips went well. “They’re both going through coaching changes so I am getting to know the new staffs,” said Maye. He says USC and LSU are two schools he would like to visit in the future. Maye did not name a favorite.
DE Brent Wilkerson (6-4 245) of Hyattsville, MD has offers from Clemson and USC. His other offers include Penn State, Maryland, Virginia, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, NC State, Boston College, Iowa, Delaware, Louisville, Tennessee, and Rutgers. “I don’t really have a top five but I do have schools that I am focusing on because they are the ones showing me the most interest,” said Wilkerson. Those schools are Clemson, Rutgers, Virginia, Maryland, Michigan, Penn State, and North Carolina. “Clemson is going to need defensive lineman because they are losing a lot of players,” he said. “They are showing me a lot of interest.” Wilkerson plans to visit Clemson in May. “I’m want to visit all of those schools in North and South Carolina.” Those schools include USC, North Carolina, and NC State along with Clemson. Wilkerson is visiting Penn State this weekend, Virginia on April 2nd, and Michigan on the 16th. He has taken several trips to Penn State and Virginia and has visited Rutgers as well. Wilkerson does not have a favorite.
DL Earl Moore (6-2 280) of Tampa says USC and Florida State are his current top two. They have offered along with Georgia, South Florida, Southern Cal, Texas Tech, Miami and Florida. Moore has not been on any visits but plans to take some this summer with USC and Southern Cal on his agenda. Moore last talked with USC recruiter GA Mangus in early February. “They have a great head coach,” Moore said of the Gamecocks. “It’s a good program. Looks like they are going to be an effective team in the future.” Moore said he won’t make a final decision until close to signing day next February.
DB Da’Quan Davis (5-11 170) of Baltimore has taken several visits to USC and says an offer from the Gamecocks “would be a blessing”. He attended a 7 on 7 camp in Columbia last summer and returned for the USC-Alabama game. He also attended several basketball games at USC. “I really love it down there,” said Davis. “It reminds me of home. My mother is from North Carolina and I have family in South Carolina. They make you feel like you’re at home and the coaches take the time to get to know their players.” Davis has a single offer from West Virginia and says his coach has told him more are coming. Rutgers, Virginia, and Penn State could offer soon and Notre Dame, USC, Temple, and Vandy are showing interest in Davis. “West Virginia was the first to offer and you’re always going to have a special place in your heart for the first offer,” he said. “They’re my favorite but I’m going to take my time (in committing).” Davis says an offer from USC would make them one of his top schools immediately. “They are in the SEC so you have a chance to get better a player going up against the best every week,” he said. “Especially at a school like South Carolina. They are getting better and beating teams like Alabama. To be the best you can be, you have to go up against the best.”
