Janari Dean

A third tight end who was being recruited by USC told us Monday night he is no longer on their board because, he was told, they have a commitment at the position. As a result, his plans to camp there last week were nixed. This prospect has Texas, Vanderbilt and Louisville offers. Last week two other tight ends told us they were told the same by USC. So, it would appear the Gamecocks are sitting on a commitment from a TE and keeping it under wraps. One of their top TE targets, Eric Shaw, visited last weekend.
