USC has one commitment counting towards the 2018 signing class in 2017 holdover DE Tyreek Johnson. With a junior day for the 2018 class coming Saturday, the Gamecocks could pick up their first commitments from the rising seniors. And a strong possibility for that is WR Darius Rush of CE Murray. He will be in for the junior day with his mom, and with an offer already in hand, he said a commitment is on his mind if given the opportunity.
“It is a possibility,” Rush said. “They are a top possibility. The commitment is coming soon. I’ve been talking to coach Lance Thompson and coach B-Mac (Bryan McClendon). They are very excited to have me come up there for their junior day and they are going to be happy to get me around the facilities and meet the coaching staff. This offer is a great opportunity because it opened up plenty of doors for me with colleges calling me and wondering about me. I’m very appreciative of this offer.”
Rush also has offers from Old Dominion, Charlotte, Miami of Ohio and South Carolina State.
Last season the versatile Rush had 14 catches for 228 yards and 2 touchdowns, rushed for 622 yards and 12 touchdowns, had 1149 all purpose yards, averaged 38 yards per kickoff return and 9 yards per punt return, and had 36 tackle with 2 interceptions.
