Dylan Fairchild

USC is putting in the work with OL Dylan Fairchild (6-5 285) of Cumming, GA, and the results thus far are positive for the Gamecocks. The three-star tackle according to the 247Sports composite has camped with the Gamecocks and plans a return visit once his wrestling schedule eases up. Gamecock offensive line coach Eric Wolford has Fairchild on speed-dial and the big lineman is responding with like interest.

“We’re still on a good level, we’re talking a good bit and sending me text messages and stuff like that,” Fairchild said. “They are pushing committing, everyone is going to push commitment now. It’s going good for them, it’s going real good. I’m liking South Carolina. Everything is open, all my options are open, but I’m really liking South Carolina. They are doing a great job recruiting me, keeping in touch with me and everything. I’m liking them a lot.”

Fairchild and Wolford are developing a relationship, and he’s learned a little bit about how Wolford would use him if he were to join him in Columbia.

“I’d probably right tackle for him,” Fairchild said. “We really haven’t talked anything about me going there and the role I would have on the team. I don’t think we’ve gotten to that point yet. But he loves the way I play, loves my drive and the way my work ethic is.”

Fairchild said this summer he likely will attend camps at USC, Clemson, Georgia and Alabama. He’s not heard that much from the Tigers but feels things will pick up with them once they see him in camp. Along with USC, he has offers from Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Louisville, East Carolina, Georgia Tech and Jacksonville State. He said all the schools that had offered prior to the dead period came by his school last month.

Fairchild said will not be an early graduate from high school and he would like to make his decision this summer.
