ATH Stanton Truitt (5-10 185) of Monroe, GA is friends with current USC commit LB Bryson Allen-Williams of Ellenwood, GA and says that Allen-Williams “is talking to me a lot about South Carolina.” Truitt has built a good relationship with several Gamecocks coaches to include defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward. “They’re recruiting me to play defensive back,”said Truitt. “I’ve been there a couple of times and I like it. I’m pretty interested in the Gamecocks.” Truitt was at the Arkansas game last season and returned for the junior day. “I love it,” he said. “I like what they’re doing there.” He has also visited Florida, North Carolina, NC State, Auburn and Arizona State among other schools. Truitt will take “two to three” mpre visits this summer before narrowing his list. He would like to make a commitment prior to his senior season and did not name a leader. His offers include USC, Florida, Arkansas, Kentucky, Arizona State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Nebraska, Missouri, Stanford, NC State, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Virginia and Boston College among others.
WR Ryshene Bronson of Fort Meyers, FL has named a new top five. They are USC, Clemson, Tennessee, South Florida and LSU in no order. Bronson said he likes the Tigers and Gamecocks because “both schools like to toss it around.” The Gamecocks have a slight lead over Clemson because of their conference affiliation. “If I had to choose between the ACC and the SEC, I would choose the SEC,” said Bronson. “I want to play big boy football.” Bronson was previously committed to Florida but has reconsidered saying he wants to get away from the Sunshine State. He plans to visit Ole Miss, Mississippi State, South Florida, Florida State and Alabama this summer. “I know for a fact I’ll take one of my official visits to South Carolina,” he said. “I haven’t up (a date) but I know I’m going there.” Clemson is another official visit Bronson wants to take. He does not have a time frame for a decision.
