#STRecruiting Notebook 6-16 (Tuesday PM Update)

Derwin Burgess

USC coach Will Muschamp issued a pair of #SpursUp commitment alerts Monday. One was confirmed to be SAF Jayden Johnson of Cedartown, GA. The second alert has not been followed by a public commitment. Who might it be for? By our records, the Gamecocks are in the lead group for at least 20 prospects.

Not all of them have indicated a decision is coming soon, but others have indicated a public reveal is not far off and thus one could be that second commitment. Those include WR Derwin Burgess of Riverdale, GA who plans an announcement any day from a final list of USC, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Tennessee, Florida State and Coastal Carolina; Newly offered OT Jordan Davis of Fairfield, GA who talked with Will Muschamp Monday and indicated Monday night something might be up with the Gamecocks; DE Shemar Pearl of Garden City JC, KS who has set Thursday for his announcement. He’s down to USC, Texas Tech and Missouri; DT Tyrion Ingram-Dawkins who has an announcement date of June 26th but tweeted Monday night he had some “big news coming soon.” He’s had a top list of USC, Tennessee, Florida State, Penn State, North Carolina and Georgia. Plus, Alabama recently offered and could be a factor; and CB Khyree Jackson of East Mississippi JC who is down for a July 11th announcement with USC, Oregon, Florida, Oklahoma, Alabama and Kentucky in his final group.

Some other players who have the Gamecocks in their lead group and could be close on a decision are South Pointe WR O’Mega Blake, Milledgeville, GA CB Javon Bullard, Fairfield, AL WR Malachi Bennett, LB Jabril McNeill of Raleigh, RB Jaylin White of Dothan, AL, RB Ke’Travion Hargrove of Ruston, LA, SAF Myzel Williams of Deltona, FL, DE George Wilson of Virginia Beach, VA and LB Jordan Poole of Oakboro, NC.
