Michael Hill is now taking the summer visits he had planned to take before narrowing his list. Earlier this week he was at Ohio State. Pendleton coach Paul Sutherland drove Hill to Columbus and was on hand for the visit. “We were there a day and a half,” Sutherland said. “It was very, very big for him. Growing up that was his favorite team. It was a great trip. He said it was everything he thought it would be and then some. They rolled out the red carpet. Urban Meyer guaranteed him he will not redshirt.” Hill is going to LSU this Sunday and will spend a few days there for a camp. He will also make trips to Alabama and Florida. “He is sticking to his earlier statement that he’s not going to make a final list until he see all the schools,” Sutherland said. The list reduction will come after this series of trips. Sutherland said he talked Friday with Clemson’s Chad Morris and USC’s Shawn Elliott and he will get Hill to both schools again. And Hill told Sutherland today he will attend a one day camp at USC July 17th. Right now, Ohio State is the team to beat. “That’s what I would say,” the coach said. “That was his favorite team growing up but he’s not close to committing.”
TE Jordan Davis (6-4 230) of Thomson, GA visited USC Friday morning with his head coach and left Columbia with the Gamecocks at the top of his list. “USC would be pretty hard to beat,” Davis said. “I would call them my leader.” Florida and Georgia are the other two schools on his list. Georgia has not yet offered. Davis said he met with several Gamecock coaches on his visit and got a good look at things. “I liked the campus, the weight room, the facilities and the academics,” he said. Davis will go to a camp at Florida June 15th and one at Georgia June 16th. Despite having USC out front, Davis was not ready to make a commitment. “It’s too soon to think about committing,” he said. He would like to make his decision in late July or August. Last season Davis said he had between 20-30 catches with 5 or 6 touchdowns.
DB Justin Williams of Port St. Lucie, FL says his top three right now are USC, Purdue and Michigan State with no leader. But he added Michigan State and Purdue are at the top. “I get a lot of love from the coaches,” Williams said. He did talk to USC recruiter Grady Brown earlier this week. “He’s still very interested,” Williams said. “He’s looking forward to seeing me in camp.” Williams plans to go to camps this summer and then decide, and he thinks USC will be one of his camp stops. He’s also been talking to Mississippi State.
OL Taylor Chambers of Irmo committed to Wake Forest earlier this week. He also had an offer from Southern Miss and drew interest from USC and Clemson. “I felt I couldn’t find a better combination of academics and big time football,” Chambers said. Chambers made his decisision shortly after visiting Wake Forest for a camp.
DL Montravius Adams of Vienna, GA will visit Tennessee Saturday.
