USC continues to track the cornerback market, especially after losing the commitment of DJ Daniel to Georgia last week. The Gamecocks have their eye on CB Zay Flowers (5-10 170) of Fort Lauderdale and he announced an offer from them last week. His next move with them will be an official visit possibly for the Akron weekend.
“I like the SEC,” Flower said. “I’ve been texting Coach T-Rob (Travaris Robinson) a lot. I like the position that he wants me at and he’s going to make me a Gamecock, that’s what he said. He likes that I can cover, move my hips and I’m physical.”
Flowers said Robinson has been recruiting him since last summer and he’s still doing his due diligence to learn more about the program.
“I’m still learning about it because I know a couple of people that went there, Chris Lammons and Skai Moore,” he said. “Skai Moore went to my school and Chris Lammons is like my brother’s best friend, so I’m talking to them about it.”
Flowers has taken an official visit to Kansas State and he will take one to Nebraska this weekend. His Rivals recruiting profile lists him as having been committed to Nebraska at one time but he said he’s never committed to anyone. He said he plans to visit NC State and Boston College in December.
Flowers said he’s not favoring anyone at this point and he’s not sure if he’ll sign early. He said NC State, Boston College and Kansas State have been recruiting him the hardest and Robinson also is making a strong effort with daily communication.
