Wren QB Jay Urich was back in Columbia Saturday for the Will Muschamp cookout at USC. While the event was low key and low pressure from a recruiting standpoint, Urich got plenty of face time with Muschamp and offensive coordinator Kurt Roper. And he said the message they delivered to him was clear.
“They really like me and I’m their number one guy,” Urich said. “It means a lot. I really like the coaching staff and getting to hang around them I had a great time. It was more of a hanging out type of day. Building relationships.”
Urich picked up an offer last week from Southern Miss, the second major program to offer him besides USC. Plus he’s now hearing from Indiana, Wake Forest and Tennessee.
“Those schools have not offered but are picking up interest,” he said.
Urich is maintaining an open mind about things and is not ready to name a favorite or a timetable for a decision.
“I’m just taking it all in,” Urich said.
