SAF Nick Cull (5-11 175) is another versatile defensive back Shane Beamer and his secondary coach Torrian Gray are heavily recruiting for USC. They offered Cull in mid-March and have worked him hard over the phone and other forms of communication. Their effort and passion in recruiting Cull is working because he plans to take an official visit with them in June on a date to be determined around his mother’s work schedule.
“I’ve been hearing from them ever since they offered me,” Cull said. “I’ve pretty much been talking with coach Gray and the head coach, coach Beamer. I hear from coach Gray pretty much every day. I can talk to coach Beamer anytime. I can give him a call, and he’ll answer. We talk pretty much daily.”
Cull said all those conversations have led to a bonding between him and the Gamecock coaches.
“Very close, very tight,” Cull said. “We’re building a close relationship. It’s great. I like how we consistently communicate. I like what they are recruiting me for. And Jaycee Horn was my favorite. He’s my role model right now.”
Cull said Gray sees a lot of the traits that made Horn a first-round draft pick last month in him.
“He just loves my versatility and my physicality,” Cull said. “How I can play more than one position on the field. I’m primarily a safety, but I can play corner, too. It doesn’t really matter.”
Cull has an official visit to Miami set for June 18th and plans to visit Miami unofficially June 1st. He also cites Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss as his top schools along with USC.
Other offers for Cull include Georgia Tech, Indiana, Minnesota, Arkansas, Nebraska, LSU, Marshall, Florida State, Middle Tennessee State, Vanderbilt and Coastal Carolina.
Cull is rated a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite where he is ranked as the #44 cornerback nationally.
USC offered OT Cason Henry (6-6 290) of Marietta, GA. He’s rated a 3-star in the 247Sports Composite. Some other offers are Georgia Tech, Louisville, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Virginia Tech.
Greenville SAF Ashton Whitner was offered by North Carolina A&T.
