Josh Braun

One of the top uncommitted offensive linemen in the country, Josh Braun (6-7 320) of Live Oak, FL, made his official visit to USC over the weekend. That was his second official visit. He was at Florida two weekends ago. He will visit Georgia in two weeks and he then will choose from one of those three.

The Gamecocks did their best to make their move with Braun showing off their new football digs but also impressing him with the best side of their academic world, which is the top ranked International Business School.

“Their business school is very amazing,” Braun said. “It’s a different layout and a different building type than other schools so that increased my interest. If I go to South Carolina I’ll be on the Chinese business track.”

From a football standpoint, Braun saw similarities there to what he would face in the business school setting.

“The competition would be great, and the facilities are great,” he said. “And I really connected with the players there and had a good time with them. And I love Coach (Eric) Wolford’s coaching style and his intensity and that’s what I’m looking for in a coach.”

Braun said he could play either tackle or guard on the next level.
