USC may be on the verge of adding a third wide receiver commitment to its class. Long time target Rico Powers, a native of Savannah but attending Hapeville Charter near Atlanta this season, said Sunday that after visiting the Gamecocks again Saturday for the Alabama game, he’s getting close on finalizing a decision. It’s not a matter of months. It’s not a matter of weeks.
“Yes. Soon. Days,” Powers said. ” “It (the visit) went good in my opinion. When I got there, I was given a little tour and then I sat down and talked to coach Muschamp. After the game, I went in to the locker room and me and coach BMac (Brian McClendon) talked it up. Coach BMac called a clean game.”
Powers visited USC for the spring game in April, and he was back for a camp in June. He’s liked the Gamecocks for a long time and this visit further cemented those feelings.
“I still feel the same,” Powers said. “They’ve always been high up on my list. That hasn’t changed.”
Powers said he has no other visits planned at this point. He said Arkansas and Nebraska were two others on him strong at this point. He’s expecting USC’s McClendon to scout his game Friday after next.
