CB Emory Floyd (6-1 165) of Powder Springs, GA committed to USC in July, and he has held to that pledge thru thick and then. And there’s no real indication he will break it now just eight days before Signing Day. But Florida hasn’t given up the fight.
Floyd said he continues to hear from the Gators and will have an in-home visit with his recruiter this week. And that might lead to an official visit this weekend.
“I’m committed 100% to South Carolina, but there are still teams trying to get at me,” Floyd said. “But right now, I’m just trying to stay committed to South Carolina. Florida is still coming at me hard. There’s a new coaching staff and they still want to keep in contact with me to see where my head is at. But I’m still 100% committed to South Carolina.”
Floyd said he’s not yet talked with new Florida coach Billy Napier, but his Florida recruiters wants to set that up. And he wants Floyd to visit officially this weekend.
“That’s what they want me to do but I don’t know yet,” Floyd said. “I’ve got to talk to my parents. I don’t know if I’m going to go down there yet. I’d say it’s 80-20. It all depends on how my parents feel about it. I just know I’m locked in all the way with South Carolina.”
USC head coach Shane Beamer along with defensive assistants Clayton White and Torrian Gray were in for their visit with Floyd last week. Gray is planning to return Thursday, and Florida cornerbacks coach Jules Montinar might be in as well this week.
