QB Brendan Nosovitch of Allentown, PA will visit Clemson, USC and Georgia Tech in June his father said Monday night. “We’re probably going to take a family trip to Clemson and Georgia Tech within the next two to three weeks,” Gene Nosovitch said. “And we’ll probably stop at South Carolina.” Nosovitch has previously visited USC and recruiter GA Mangus has been thru his school this spring. Nosovitch has offers from USC, Clemson, Virginia, Georgia Tech, Temple, Ohio, Army and others. His father is expecting more offers in the next couple of weeks. Penn State is among the others showing interest and reports have had Nosovitch waiting on a Nittany Lion offer before moving forward. His father said that’s not the case. “He’s not waiting on Penn State to offer,” he said. “Penn State is like everybody else out there. He’s excited about his offers from South Carolina and Virginia and he’s still exploring Clemson and Georgia Tech. He’s developed a good relationship with coach Mangus. He really likes coach Mangus.” Mr. Nosovitch added that Clemson quarterbacks coach Chad Morris is very interested in his son. “Clemson does seem interested in him,” he said. “They feel like he fits in with their system. But there’s no doubt USC and Virginia are out front.” Nosovitch would like to make his decision before his season.
OL D.J. Humphries (6-6 275) of Charlotte has over 30 offers that include USC, Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Texas, North Carolina, Auburn, Southern Cal, Ohio State and LSU. He has not narrowed his list but did name USC, Florida and Tennessee has his current favorites. “I have a comfortability with those schools,” Humphries said. “I like the coaches and just feel comfortable with those schools.” Humphries has developed a good relationship with USC RB Marcus Lattimore. “He’s a real good guy,” he said. “I’ve built a good relationship with him and their coaches.” Coaches from USC, UNC, Florida, Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama, Miami, Southern Cal, California and Maryland among others have stopped by the school spring to see Humphries. He is planning trips to Clemson, USC, Florida, Miami, Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee this summer. Humphries did not name a favorite.
RB Auctavius Bennett (5-6 170) of Clarksville, MD missed his junior season with a hip injury and is anticipating picking up his first offer during next season. “I’m back at a 100 percent and ready to go,” Bennett said. “A lot of coaches are saying they want to see me camp and see the film of my first two games before they offer.” He has plans to camp at Pitt, Duke, North Carolina, North Texas, Michigan State, West Virginia and Virginia. Bennett said he would camp at Clemson if they get back in the picture with him. “I haven’t heard from them lately,” he said. “I talked to coach (Chad) Morris early on but haven’t really heard from them since. I still want to contact them and would camp there if they’re interested.” Bennett named Mississippi State as his favorite saying, “They’re recruiting me pretty hard. Travel is kind of expensive to get there so I don’t think I can camp there. I will try and visit them later.” Middle Tennessee is showing interest after Bennett visited last Friday. They want him to attend camp as well.
TE Justin Meredith of TL Hanna is not close to narrowing his list or deciding on a favorite school his father said Monday. While nearby Clemson is thought by some to be in the strongest position, that’s not the case at this point. “Clemson is not out front,” Mr. Meredith said. “He grew up a Clemson fan and his uncle and grandmother went to Clemson. But Auburn, Tennessee, LSU, North Carolina, Duke…he loves Coach Cutcliffe up there.” Meredith will attend a passing league in late June at Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Louisville and Notre Dame. “He’s curious to see Notre Dame,” his father said. “He’s going to wait until after that seven on seven passing league and then come out with a top five.” USC was the first to offer Meredith but that relationship has not blossomed according to his father. “Where South Carolina stands, I can’t tell you,” he said. “They showed a lot of interest at first but have backed off the last three or four months. He went to some games there last season but hasn’t been back.” Meredith had 24 catches last season for 600 yards and 3 touchdowns.
