USC missed out on one of its top cornerback targets Monday when Jalen Perry of Dacula, GA committed to Michigan following an official visit to Ann Arbor. Perry had made multiple unofficial visits to USC and was scheduled for an official visit with the Gamecocks December 1st. Fortunately for the Gamecocks, they have a bevy of quality cornerback targets still on the board including Shilo Sanders of Cedar Hill, TX.Sanders took his official visit to USC October 12th and the Gamecocks are keeping up the pursuit of the son of one the most famous corners in football history, Deion Sanders.
“I love them,” Sanders said. “As of right now that’s the only school I’ve visited so I’ve got to take some other visits. I’m not going to say that (the favorite), I’m just going to say I like them a lot. I don’t really have a favorite because I haven’t really seen anything. But I like them a lot, for sure.”
USC head coach Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson were in touch with Sanders Monday via text messaging. He said Robinson plans to be out to watch him soon in a playoff game.
Tennessee has become a major player as well and Sanders said he will set up an official visit with the Vols. He does have an official visit set with Colorado State for December 14th and is looking at Michigan State and Florida State for possible visits as well.
Sanders plays in the private school league in Texas and said his team should win the 2A state title this season. MaxPreps has Sanders thru nine games with 4 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery, 17 tackles, 605 all-purpose yards and 4 touchdowns.
