One of USC’s longtime targets, DB Jammie Robinson, of Cordele, GA, made his official visit over the weekend. Robinson has been a frequent visitor to USC but he said this weekend had some extra special moments for him. “We went out to Coach Muschamp’s house, we were on the lake and we went tubing and stuff. I really ate a lot, ate a whole lot. Got to hang out with the coaches. Coach Muschamp and Coach T-Rob (Travaris Robinson) were telling me they want me to be like Matt Elam. He played for Florida. They were just telling me I’ve got an advantage by playing early if I go there and possibly starting as a freshman (at safety or Nickel).” Robinson said he plans to take other officials to Michigan, Auburn, Georgia and Kentucky but no dates have been set. He plans to make his decision during his season and he will graduate early. He does not claim a leader from his top five.
Highly touted DL Travon Walker of Thomaston, GA spent the weekend at USC where he reunited with his cousin DJ Wonnum. “It went well. Getting to spend time with all of the coaches instead of just the coach that recruits you, and spend time with their families.” Mike Peterson and Travaris Robinson are recruiting Walker for USC. “I think they are an upcoming program with a great coaching staff. They explained to me that I had three ways to get on the field, the Buck position, defensive end and a little D-tackle. They are a top school. There is no one, two or three.” Walker said he does not have other visits planned but he will take more. Clemson, Georgia and Alabama also have been strong with him and he will visit there at some point. He had put out a top four of USC, Clemson, Georgia and Alabama but said he’s not locked in with just those schools. He said he’ll make his decision no later than mid-season. He will sign early but will not graduate early.
DE Savion Jackson of Clayton, NC was in for his official visit to USC over the weekend. “It was a very fun visit. Just being around the players and coaches and getting to see them in a relax way and seeing them interact with all the parents was fun. They just finalized some stuff in my brain I was thinking about. They answered all my questions. I took away a lot from this visit. It puts them in a strong place with me, a more solid place. This visit really set them apart from some other schools and really made them stand out.” Jackson does not have other visits scheduled at this point. He plans to release a top 4-5 this summer. He has also had Virginia, Oklahoma, NC State, Alabama, Duke, Louisville, Ohio State, East Carolina Penn State, Florida, Auburn, Virginia Tech and Tennessee on his top list.
OL Anthony Whigan of Lackawanna JC, PA made his official visit to USC over the weekend. “I really enjoyed myself. Coach Wolf showed me a lot about South Carolina. They showed me a whole bunch of stuff I never knew about South Carolina. Me, my mom and dad really enjoyed it. They were telling me I can impact the program, be an immediate help. They were telling me I’m a priority. They need a tackle because they lose three tackles next year and they need somebody to come in that’s older and can play that role. That stuck with me. They are definitely a school that I can see myself going to. It kind of reminds me of back home, that comfortable feeling. ” Whigan will visit Louisville next weekend and is scheduled to visit Ole Miss and Penn State in December. He plans to make his decision in October.
