DE Kameryn Fountain of Atlanta spent the weekend in Columbia after taking in the USC-Florida game at Williams-Brice Stadium. As Gamecock coach Shane Beamer said after the game, his defense had issues carrying through on the pressure calls, and Fountain said he noticed that. Thus, he realizes Beamer and defensive ends coach Sterling Lucas have true need for a player like him.
“It was a whole bunch of good vibes to get into,” Fountain said. “It was better than some of the ones that I’ve taken. It was just the environment. I talked to a whole bunch of coaches; I think half of the position coaches. Coach Beamer was like he needed me up there. He needs some edge rushers. And coach Lucas said he needs some edge rushers.”
Fountain has been to several games at USC over the years and has always had a strong feeling for the program, despite being currently committed to Southern Cal. This most recent visit keeps the Gamecocks very much on his mind.
“Honestly it puts them very high,” Fountain said. “Very high in my consideration. They’re up there of course with the school I’m committed with. Florida State is also up there.”
Fountain’s commitment to Southern Cal remains in place, and apparently that will remain his status until late November or December.
“I won’t really know until I take an official visit with both schools,” Fountain said. “I know they will be after my season.”
Before that, however, he does plan to make another unofficial visit to USC for a game in November. He had planned to go to Florida State this coming weekend but now has a game on Saturday, so that will have to be rescheduled.
Fountain also took unofficial visits to Southern Cal and Auburn in September. He made official visits in June to Southern Cal and Georgia.
