DL Jaquaze Sorrells of Winter Park, FL has long been a USC target. He camped with the Gamecocks last summer, returned for their recruiting weekend the end of July, and took an unofficial visit for the Georgia game. Sorrells said Tuesday night he’s expecting Gamecock defensive tackles coach Lance Thompson to meet with him at school on Wednesday.
Sorrells was once a Florida commitment but since decommitting nearly a year ago, he’s had the Gamecocks among his top schools. The Gamecocks remain in a solid place with him as his recruiting hits the homestretch.
“South Carolina is a pretty good school and the coaches there are pretty cool also,” Sorrells said. “Having T-Rob and Coach Muschamp, that’s pretty much it to be honest. It’s just real cool to have those two around. They are really trying to change the program. Obviously, that’s important. A lot of schools already got their marks. It is still a few good amount of schools out right there now that’s trying to change the way things are around their campuses.”
Sorrells said coaches from Illinois, Alabama, South Florida and Michigan State have been thru to check on him. He will take his official visits in January and said USC and Penn State are the only two definite ones right now. Otherwise, everything else remains open for him regarding his decision which will come late.
“I’ve still go everybody lined up the same way,” he said. “Pretty much equal with everybody. Nobody has stood out just yet. Probably around my officials I’ll probably get that type of feeling about a school.”
According to MaxPreps, for his career Sorrells accumulated 178 total tackles with 18 sacks. This season he recorded 36 tackles with 8 tackles for loss, 2 sacks and 1 interception.
