QB Tanner McEvoy (6-6 205) of Oradell, NJ says that USC assistant coach G.A. Mangus will make an in-home visit tonight. McEvoy is narrowing his list with USC and North Carolina appearing to be out front with him. He recently eliminated Michigan from his list but is still considering Rutgers. “I wouldn’t say that they (Rutgers) are completely out with me,” said McEvoy after admitting he is unsure if he will take his official visit there on January 28th. McEvoy will visit North Carolina next weekend and will make a decision shortly after. “I’m going to commit in the next couple of weeks,” he said. He did not name a leader.
DE Mason Harris (6-3 205) of Rossville, GA received an offer from Miami on Wednesday and scheduled an official visit to South Beach today. “I am still committed to USC, but at the same time, I am going to see what is out there,” said Harris. “I really like Coach (G.A.) Mangus a lot.” Harris says he will take that trip the weekend following his official visit to USC. He will be in Columbia on January 21st and Miami on the 28th. Harris spoke with Mangus this week but was unaware of the Miami offer and visit at the time. “I’m going to let them know I’m going,” he added.
USC is losing a member of its recruiting class. According to a source close to LB Brandon Golson, USC admissions will not allow him to enroll at mid-term. Golson is NCAA qualified but apparently doesn’t meet some USC criteria. With USC out, Golson took an official visit to Louisville Wednesday and will take an official visit to Miami Friday. Both have made him committable offers and will allow him to enroll at mid-term. Golson prepped at Calhoun County and signed with USC in 2010. He did not qualify and attended Fork Union Prep, VA this past semester.
TE Jerrell Adams of Scotts Branch was scheduled to visit Arkansas this coming weekend but he informed his coach Leonard Johnson Wednesday he’s not making that visit this weekend. Johnson said Adams will try to reschedule the visit. Adams is scheduled to visit Clemson January 14th and USC January 21st. Johnson said Adams is not indicating a favorite at this point.
