USC’s momentum with DB Israel Mukuama of Bossier City, LA continued on an upward trajectory Monday night as Will Muschamp and Travaris Robinson made their in home visit. Mukuama is a former Florida State commitment but now he’s the Gamecocks’ to lose as the early signing period approaches.
“I would say they are at the top,” Mukuamua said of the Gamecocks. “They are my favorite. Anything can happen these next couple of days. I think I’ll probably commit to one of these schools either next week or on (early) signing day.”
Mukuamu took official visits to USC, Florida State, Indiana, Georgia and this past weekend to Purdue. Also Monday Indiana was in the home and Purdue is coming in Wednesday. He’s not sure when Florida State plans to visit.
As for the visit with the Gamecock coaches, Mukuama said he learned a lot more about the plans they have in store for him.
“They talked about the opportunities I have if I went there as far as coming in and playing early, and the high level of expectations and the development from the coaches I would get.”
Mukuamu also said Muschamp shared with him his thoughts on the progress of the program in year and where the Gamecocks are headed.
“First year he had six wins, this year eight wins, so you can see the program is rising,” he said. “Just the talent they are bringing in, the recruiting. And him being a defensive coach and the defensive players he and TRob have developed over the years, they said they’ve had multiple first round picks. And they said they need help at DB and they need to get longer and bigger at DB.”
Mukuamu is a former Berkeley High standout who moved to Louisiana for his senior season.
