USC is one of the offers out to DE Keeshawn Silver (6-5 260) of Rocky Mount, NC. Some of his other offers are North Carolina, NC State, Duke, Boston College, Louisville, Michigan, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, East Carolina, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest. Silver is not ready to trim his list at this point. He has visited USC five times, once for a camp and four times for games, so the Gamecocks are in the mix at this point. He has talked with Will Muschamp along with defensive coaches John Scott and Kyle Krantz.
“They are a pretty good school, they are on the fence right now for when I drop my list,” Silver said. “It (interest in USC) started my freshman year. My coach has a good relationship with their coaches, they are cool with each other. (Will) Muschamp might send me a picture, they hit me up sometimes. They’ve got a great coaching staff. They would move me around, defensive tackle and defensive end.”
Silver said he will visit NC State January 19th, and on the weekend of February 1st he plans to see both Auburn and Alabama. He’s not sure yet if he will sign early or graduate early at this point.
Silver made 48 tackles with 8 sacks last season. He’s rated a 3-star prospect and the 21st best prospect in North Carolina in the 247Sports composite.
