WR Bryan Edwards of Conway is one of the state’s best for 2016 and he’s spending Saturday at USC taking a better look at the program he currently favors. USC has been by Conway to see Edwards a couple of times and recruiter Steve Spurrier Jr. took in one of his recent basketball games.
“It’s just their constant recruiting,” Edwards said in explaining why USC leads for him over Clemson and Wake Forest. “They spread the ball around and share the wealth. I feel like if I can make plays, I can fit in any offense. The relationship I have with coach Spurrier Jr. and talking to him a lot, he’s telling me a lot of things.”
Duke was in to see Edwards last week and he’s expecting Clemson to get down soon. Wake Forest also has been in.
But USC is the team to beat and Edwards likes the idea of possibly playing for Steve Spurrier.
“I haven’t had an in depth conversation with him but I hope to have one soon,” Edwards said. “Hopefully he’s there when I graduate and if I go there, he will be there. He’s a great coach and he’s turned that program up.”
Edwards said the Gamecocks have a substantial lead over the rest of the teams on his offer list. That would include Clemson, Virginia Tech, Florida, Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky and Wake Forest.
Edwards added his girlfriend has also been accepted by USC but hasn’t decided yet where she will go.
