USC secondary coach Torrian Gray is always in the market for big and physical corners, and he recently offered one he thinks fits that mold. Jontavius Wyman (6-1 175) of Jonesboro, GA was offered by Gray on October 2nd and is now considering the Gamecocks along with several other Power Five programs.
“I’d been talking to them for about a week before I got the offer, and it felt great to get the offer,” Wyman said. “The coach (Gray) called me and told me he liked the way I played, how aggressive I am and how high I can jump. He likes my tackling and how I can come down hill. And nobody throws my way. He said he’d like to have me play for the Gamecocks one day.”
Wyman has not visited USC for a game or a recruiting outing, but he wants to see them in November if he can. He has kept up with them from afar and sees a secondary that would fit his strengths as a corner.
“I like everything about the Gamecocks,” Wyman said. “I like how he has produced some good corners in the past years. They’re aggressive, just as I am, and all of them can tackle, and they are great cover men. I like Jaycee Horn too, as he came out of South Carolina.”
Wyman added that the Gamecocks are in the mix with several others at this point, and he’s not rushing the recruiting process.
“I’m liking everybody right now,” Wyman said. “Everybody is pushing hard to come get me, like UCF, Texas, Tennessee and Florida.” He also has offers from Michigan, Georgia Tech, Kentucky and Pitt from the Power Five level.
Wyman did visit Clemson this season for the Florida State game but said he’s not hearing much from the Tigers at this point.
Through games of October 20th of this season, Wyman has had 45 tackles with 5 interceptions.
