ATH Ti’on Green (6-0 195) of Altamonte Springs, FL has offers from Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Cincinnati, East Carolina, Memphis, Louisville, Temple, Indiana and Washington State. He is hearing from USC, Ole Miss, North Carolina, West Virginia, Michigan State, Central Florida and South Florida. “I think North Carolina and West Virginia are really close to offering,” Green said. He thinks and offer from USC is imminent as well. “Coach Jeep Hunter told me he wants to see me take the test (ACT),” he said. “They want to make sure I can qualify before they offer me, I think. I think that is what a lot of schools are waiting on.” Green likes a lot of things about the Gamecocks. “What don’t I like?”, he asked. “I like the offense, the defense, even the uniforms.” He did want to make it clear that he does not have a favorite. “They keep asking me to come visit so I really want to get up there,” Green added. The two trips he plans to take this summer are to Indiana and East Carolina. He would like to make it to Columbia as well. As a junior, Green rushed for 919 yards on 89 carries and 17 touchdowns. He caught 12 passes for 439 yards and four scores. On defense, he compiled 42 tackles and three interceptions.
USC is one of the offers for WR D’Vario Montgomery (6-2 205) of Winter Park, FL and the Gamecocks are keeping up their recruiting interest. USC recruiter Jeep Hunter was recently by the school to check on Montgomery who also has offers from Florida, Georgia, LSU, Central Florida, South Florida, Rutgers, West Virginia, Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, UCLA and Washington State. Montgomery said he’s wide open regarding his choice. He added he’s had the most contact this spring from South Florida, Georgia, Central Florida and Alabama. Last season he had 45 catches for 1100 yards and 13 touchdowns.
WR-DB Jamel Harbison (5-11 195) of Charlotte has added two offers to his sheet. With offers from Clemson, West Virginia, Virginia Tech and Minnesota already, Kentucky and Virginia have now offered. “He is getting interest from every big school in the country,” coach Michael Palmeiri said. “Every school from the SEC and ACC have been by this spring and they all ask for film on him.” USC and North Carolina continue to show interest in Harbison but have not offered. “We hope they’ll offer,” Palmeiri said. “A lot of schools still want to see him at their one-day camps before they offer.” According to his coach, Harbison will attend several camps over the summer including Clemson. “I’m not sure if he is going to South Carolina but I know they want him to come in,” Palmeiri said. He does not have a favorite.
Rising junior RB Tarean Folston (5-10 190) of Cocoa, FL is expected to be one of the top prospects in Florida for the 2013 class and USC is one of the programs already showing interest.

USC has had success recruiting Cocoa landing offensive lineman Ronald Patrick in the 2009 class.
