DL Tonka Hemingway of Conway was one of the top prospects to visit USC over the weekend. His parents and his brother joined him on the visit that lasted about five hours. Hemingway has been heavily pursued by the Gamecocks and this visit gave him a chance to see new buildings and the new defensive tackles coach John Scott.
“They showed me around the new facility,” Hemingway said. “I liked how they practiced and how it was uptempo and how they compete everyday. They got after it every play. They come off the line good and play every down. I liked how coach Scott talked with the guys and helped out. He said he liked how I can play in and out.”
Hemingway also talked with head coach Will Muschamp.
“He said that he was glad that I came up there and came to watch practice and see how things work,” Hemingway said.
Hemingway has not yet cut his list but he feels like USC will be in that short list. He said he “most likely” will return to USC for the spring game. And he said wants to visit North Carolina, Duke and Alabama.
