RB Kanye Udoh (6-0 200) of Richland, NJ made his second trip to the Palmetto State for an unofficial visit this past weekend. In September he was at Clemson. Saturday he was at USC. He’s not hearing much from the Tigers, but USC running backs coach Montario Hardesty is interested, and that resulted in the invitation to come in for the game.
“Coach Hardesty looked at my mid-season film and he said he liked it a lot,” Udoh said. “He started recruiting me and talking to my parents. He was telling me some things that they do, and he wanted me to get there for a game, meet me in person and let me see the school.”
Udoh did meet with Hardesty, and he did get a look at things around the football operation.
“I really liked it a lot,” Udoh said. “The vibe was great. The fans were amazing. And I got the chance to go around the football facilities.”
The question now for Udoh as it pertains to the Gamecocks, will Hardesty get back to him with an offer?
“He said that the rest of the coaching staff will look at my film before he offers me,” Udoh said. “He said he likes me a lot and wants me to come back for an official. I feel good towards them. Definitely good people over there.”
Udoh, who just went over 1000 rushing yards on the season, said of the schools he’s been offered by Maryland, Army and Delaware are in touch the most. He also has been offered by Boston College, Syracuse, Connecticut, Buffalo, West Virginia, Nebraska, Rutgers, Massachusetts and Temple.
Clemson and USC have been his only game visits this season, but he plans to visit Pittsburgh this Saturday for the Clemson game.
Udoh said he’d like to make a decision soon, possibly within a month.
