#STRecruiting Notebook 10-27 (UPDATED Thursday PM)

South Florence QB LaNorris Sellers, who is a Shrine Bowl selection and a finalist for Mr. Football in South Carolina, said Wednesday night he is postponing his scheduled unofficial visit to Syracuse this Saturday because of the Noon kickoff time. Sellers, who is committed to the Orange, said he had expected a night game between Syracuse and Notre Dame, and the earlier time won’t give him enough travel time. Plus, Sellers has a huge game Friday night against cross-town rival West Florence for the region championship. Sellers said he does plan to reschedule the visit with Syracuse. He took his official visit there in the summer. As of Wednesday night, Sellers said he had no plans for a game visit Saturday. USC offered him last Saturday and has invited him to visit for any of their remaining home games.

USC will have another large contingent of visitors at Williams-Brice Stadium Saturday for the Missouri game. They are scheduled to have one official visitor in DT Elijah Davis (6-4 300) of Wagener-Salley and East Mississippi JC. The Gamecocks have recruited Davis going back several years. He visited in May and June.
