WR Tyquan Johnson of Sylvania, GA camped at USC earlier this month and landed an offer from the Gamecocks. That immediately put the Gamecocks at the top of his list along with Mississippi State. Since then, the Gamecocks have continued to work Johnson hard with daily contact from Will Muschamp and Bryan McClendon. As a result, Johnson says USC now stands alone at the top of his list, and by a wide margin.
“They are just telling me they would use me as a big target, just throwing and slinging it,” Johnson said. “And also opening the offense up for the running game, too.”
Johnson said he will return to USC July 22nd for the prospect social gathering.
“South Carolina is my number one choice right now,” Johnson said with Mississippi State second and West Virginia third. “It was neck and neck but it (USC’s lead) has grown bigger and bigger because South Carolina is recruiting me real, real, real hard, like heavy.”
Despite a strong lean to the Gamecocks, Johnson said he won’t make a commitment until December. He does not have any current plans to visit Mississippi State or West Virginia.
