RB Tank Bigsby of Hoganville, GA is a wanted man by USC. Head coach Will Muschamp and running backs coach Thomas Brown desperately want an elite back in the 2020 class and they are throwing the full force of their recruiting talents into wooing Bigsby and his family. Bigsby has visited USC more than any other school and the Gamecocks can only hope that kind of interest eventually will pay off in a commitment.
Bigsby visited last season. He also was in for the junior day in late January. And Saturday he, his mother and his brother were back for a Saturday visit and overnight stay. They met with Muschamp and Brown first at the new football ops building and the made their way over to Colonial Life Arena for the basketball game.
Bigsby said the visit didn’t uncover any new ground thru his conversations with the coaches.
“The same thing really,” Bigsby said. “They just like my leadership and stuff like that. I feel like they are a good school, they have good coaches. The coaching staff is good.”
The primary message Bigsby said he’s getting from Muschamp and Brown is come to USC and be that guy at running back who gets 25 carries and 150 yards per game. But, he said the Gamecocks aren’t alone in making that pitch.
“Yes sir, a lot of people are doing that,” he said.
Bigsby said he’s not visited any other schools but he will as he continues thru his process.
“I’m doing my top five and the I’m going to do my decision after my officials,” Bigsby said. “A lot of schools are sticking out really but I haven’t visited anywhere, so I’ve got to go and visit and all that.”
While he has not yet decided on his top five, Bigsby confirmed USC will be in that group when he releases it next month.
