USC made a strong push for LB Tyron Hopper of Roswell, GA in the spring before he committed to Florida. Hopper, who lived in Gaffney until moving after his sophomore season, has visited USC three times and said he might be in for Saturday’s game with Georgia on an unofficial visit. The trip is dependent on transportation.
“I think I am, I might be,” Hopper said about the visit. “I like South Carolina. I hear from them a good bit. I talk to (Will) Muschamp and (Coleman) Hutzler. They just want me to come back down on a visit.”
Even if the Gamecocks are successful in getting Hopper back in for a visit, they’ll have a lot of work in front of them in turning him from the Gators.
“I’m 110% for the Gators,” he said of his commitment.
Hopper said he’s also talking with Auburn. He plans to visit Florida for the LSU game.
