USC continues its down to the wire battle for LB Tavareon Martin-Scott of Dodge City JC, KS. Monday night Martin-Scott said he remained undecided between USC, Mississippi State and West Virginia. He said he plans to make a decision Tuesday and then will sign Wednesday morning. Martin-Scott talked with Gamecock coaches Shane Beamer and Clayton White on Facetime Monday night, and they reasserted their reasons for why he should sign with them. “You’ve got 85-thousand people in the crowd. You’re coming out of the tunnel with the smoke blowing. And the SEC is the best competition. So, why not? None of the other schools can tell you that.” Martin-Scott also talked with West Virginia on Facetime Monday night. He said they did a presentation with his uniform and number.
The momentum for SAF Juwon Gaston of Montgomery, AL may have shifted from USC to Auburn. Last month, even after being offered by Auburn, Gaston said he still favored the Gamecocks by a wide margin. Gaston said on January 21st his desire was to leave the state. But Auburn got its staff together and made Gaston a priority, and a recruiting contact in Alabama indicated Monday night Auburn might well be his choice on Wednesday.
