#STRecruiting Notebook 6-16

USC football coach Shane Beamer struck yet again Wednesday night. Beamer put out another “Welcome Home” tweet signifying he had taken a commitment from a recruit. And this one apparently was for the 2024 class. “Do we have a hashtag for the 2024 class yet ⁦@JessRecruitsSC ⁩ & ⁦ @TaylorLEdwards? We need one 😉” Bemer added at the bottom of his tweet along with the hashtag “ThatsSixSinceSunday.” Speculation as to whom Beamer is referring immediately jumped on a pair of quarterbacks who visited last week. Jayden Bradford said Wednesday night the tweet was not for him as he’s continuing with the recruiting process. Dante Reno was the other quarterback who visited. He has let it be known he is strong on the Gamecocks. He was not available for comment Wednesday night.

Clemson target LB Dee Crayton has set Saturday at 2:00 PM for his commitment announcement. He made his official visit to Clemson June 3rd and returned for an unofficial visit last weekend.

USC target WR Daidren Zipperer of Lakeland, FL is on an official visit to Pitt arriving Wednesday night. He took an official visit to UCF last weekend. He made an unofficial visit to USC earlier this month after being offered by receivers coach Justin Stepp. He also plans to take an unofficial visit to BYU June 22nd. Zipperer said he was just recently contacted via text by Stepp who is still interested and wants to get him in for an official visit this season. Zipperer’s teammate WR Tyler Williams wraps up an official to USC Thursday. Zipperer said the two are very close, but he did not suggest to Williams he visit USC. He said that was something he did on his own. Williams has also taken official visits to Clemson and Georgia and is scheduled to visit Texas A&M June 24th.
