One USC defensive end target, Savion Jackson, announced Wednesday night he will make his public commitment June 13th with USC, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State and Virginia Tech his top five. This weekend another Gamecock defensive end target, Dante Walker of Riverdale, GA, will visit unofficially with his mother, and he goes in favoring the Gamecocks.
“Right now in my head I feel like I’m leaning towards a school hard but I want my mom to see the school and get to experience what I experienced,” Walker said. “I still have to get down to LSU and Florida.”
Asked which school he’s leaning towards, Walker said, “South Carolina. Really like a big brother, mentor. I always get a call from Coach (Mike) Peterson or coach BMac (Bryan McClendon), always show love. They are talking about outside linebacker, defensive end. That would be great. South Carolina feels like a second home. I’m always up there.”
Walker said he’s been to USC five or six times for games and recruiting visits. Along with USC in his top five, Walker has Auburn, Mississippi State, Tennessee and LSU. He will go to LSU for a camp on June 26th.
Walker said he is not graduating early and won’t sign with his school until February.
