USC Saturday played host to 2020 RB Trenton Simpson (6-2 205) of Charlotte for an unofficial visit. The Gamecocks offered him last month and Saturday’s visit gave him a chance to meet up with recruiter Bobby Bentley and see up close what the Gamecocks have to offer. “It was awesome, I got to see the facilities and hang with Coach (Bentley),” Simpson said. “Also, I learned a lot about USC. I viewed the Indoor and out door practice facility. They feel like I would be a great addition to the backfield with my downhill running style and my abilities to catch the ball out the backfield.”
Simpson also holds offers from North Carolina, Colorado State and Charlotte and he’s drawing interest from Virginia Tech and NC State. USC stands in good position following the visit.
“Right now in my recruitment, USC is one of my top schools,” Simpson said. He plans to return to USC for camp this summer. He also listed North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Colorado State as some other favorites.
Last season he rushed for 700 yards and 5 touchdowns.
