USC football coach Shane Beamer will welcome another group of official visitors to campus this weekend, along with unofficial visitors in WR London Humphries of Nashville and 2024 QB Dante Reno of Massachusetts. This will mark the second major recruiting weekend of the month for the Gamecocks. They hosted an even larger group of official visits two weekends ago, and from that weekend they have gained six public commitments. Beamer and staff will be hoping to generate more from this weekend.
One of the official visitors will be DE TJ Searcy (6-5 250) of Thomaston, GA. He has also taken official visits to Clemson, Florida and Tennessee. Searcy was part of that large group that congregated at Clemson the weekend of June 3rd. “They had like 31 guys, so the Clemson weekend was pretty fun, it was like one of the biggest in recent history. The players that I would be playing with at Clemson would be very good. The thing that stood out most about Clemson was the family vibe that the coaches give off.” Lemanski Hall is his Clemson recruiter while Sterling Lucas is in his ear for the Gamecocks. “He tells me he can develop my game and get me to where I want to be. Coach Lucas is a good guy. Me and Coach Lucas have a relationship that’s very good.” Searcy will make his decision from his four official visits and hopes to do so prior to his season.
Scheduled for official visits to USC this weekend are:
- CHANDAVIAN BRADLEY DE
