TE Kevin Rainey of Yulee, FL has been a very strong lean to USC but after visiting Georgia last Saturday, Rainey has a little more to think about. “I enjoyed everything they had to show me,” Rainey said. “It was all good. Coach Richt said he liked what I had to offer.” Rainey visited USC earlier this month and will visit Miami this Thursday thru Saturday. “I’m still open, keeping my options open,” Rainey said. “Georgia is getting there, too. Moving up. A lot of good things are happening.” Rainey had planned to make a decision soon after the Miami visit but now he’s not sure he’ll be able to do that. He also has offers from Southern Cal, Florida, Florida State, South Florida, Alabama, Texas Tech and UCLA.
Clemson and USC are among the offers for DE James DeLoach (6-3 265) of Millen, GA. He also has offers from Florida State, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Georgia, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Michigan, Auburn and Florida. DeLoach has visited Auburn, Florida and Florida State and might go to Georgia Thursday. Clemson has invited him to the spring game but he may have a combine in Atlanta that day. USC also has talked to him about a visit but nothing has been set up. DeLoach said he does not have any favorites right now. He and his teammate, LB Jonathan Taylor, plan to attend the same school. DeLoach played in only four games last season due to a broken arm. He had 8.5 sacks in those four games.
ATH Tysean Holloway (6-0 189) of Asheville has offers from North Carolina and Georgia Tech and is hearing from Clemson, Florida State, Illinois, Oregon, Tennessee, Stanford, Arkansas, Nebraska, Syracuse, Texas A&M, and Virginia. “Clemson talked to me a lot when they were recruiting (high school teammate) Jeoffrey Pagan,” said Holloway. “They told me I probably wouldn’t get an offer early, but I would get one later.” Holloway will join his team this Wednesday as they travel to Clemson to get a feel for a college campus. He will visit FSU on April 16th for their junior day and is planning a trip to Illinois. Holloway says North Carolina, FSU, Illinois, and Oregon are his top schools in no particular order. As a junior, he rushed for 1891 yards and 29 touchdowns. This season, he is expecting to play offense and defense. He did not name a leader.
