Assumption University transfer CB Carlins Platel (6-2 190) has one more major event in his recruiting before he announces a commitment Wednesday. Platel is choosing between USC, Coastal Carolina and Mississippi State. The Chant and Bulldog staffs have done virtual visits with Platel. Tuesday around 2:00 PM, Platel will get the close up look with the Gamecocks with a virtual visit.
“We’re going to talk about their campus, their academics, their facilities and what they do on defense,” Platel said. “Once I do the virtual visit, I’m just going to sit on it. I’m going to think about it, pray on it and pick which school I think is the one for me and commit on Wednesday.”
USC and Mississippi State of the SEC are the heavy hitters here, but Sun Belt champion Coastal Carolina has a strong presence as well and can’t be overlooked as Platel contemplates his decision.
“I’ve been talking to them a lot too” Platel said. “We’ve been going over the stuff they do with their team defensive-wise. I’m in close contact with their coaches.”
Platel plans to tweet out his decision on Wednesday. Going into the final stages of this recruiting episode, he does have a favorite in mind.
“I kind of do. I kind of do,” Platel said. “After the visit tomorrow, and after I think about it some more, it will all come out on Wednesday.”
Platel played three seasons at Assumption and was first team All-Conference in 2019, his last season of football. He played 33 games for the Greyhounds and recorded 96 tackles with 30 pass break ups and 7 interceptions.
