Former USC commitment DB Wesley Green of Lithonia, GA is now looking at USC, Clemson, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama according to his coach. Cortez Allen said Green will take official visits to USC, Georgia, Tennessee and Ole Miss. He also will visit Clemson and Alabama with one getting the final official visit. No dates have been set. Green’s last visit was to Georgia for the LSU game. He’s also been to USC this season and plans to be at the Clemson-USC game. Green committed to USC in June and de-committed in September and his coach says he’s taking things much slower this time. “He’s going back and allowing the process to take its course,” Allen said. “There’s an interest in all those schools. He wants to get on campus and get around the guys and see what the feel is.” USC recruiter Lorenzo Ward was by the school a couple of weeks ago to check in on Green who missed last week’s game with a shoulder injury but will play this week. “He’s been real solid for us,” Allen said.
WR Josh Malone of Nashville will visit Ohio State this weekend for the Penn State game. He has taken official visits to Georgia and Tennessee and will visit Florida State November 1st and Clemson November 15th.
Junior DE Arden Key of Lithonia, GA, a former USC commitment will visit LSU this weekend according to his coach. Key continues to garner offers with Florida and Alabama two of the newest. Some of his other offers are USC, Clemson, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA, Southern Cal, Virginia Tech, Washington and LSU. There will no rush to judgment this time for Key who committed to USC in June and de-committed in September. “One thing I’ve talked to Arden about is playing football right now,” said is coach Cortez Allen. “He’s got so much time ahead of him. I’m trying to keep him grounded. It’s tough on these kids. Arden is a big, old baby and I don’t want him to get caught up in the pressure and the hype.” Key and teammate Wesley Green, another former USC commitment, are very close and Key tends to follow the older Green’s lead. Allen says USC is still very much in play for both. “They both are still excited about South Carolina but they are talking to guys and looking at different things,” he said. Key visited USC for a game earlier this season and could return for the Clemson-USC game.
Junior WR Tyron Johnson (6-0 190) of New Orleans expressed interest in Clemson and already has an offer from the Tigers. He cited the offense as the reason he likes Clemson. “I like their fast-paced offense and how they get the ball to their receivers,” Johnson said. “The last time I talked to them is when they offered me.” His other offers include LSU, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, San Diego State, Tulsa and Texas Tech. Johnson has not taken many visits but has attended games at LSU. He is taking the recruiting process slowly and unsure of future visits. “I’m not really sure which schools I will visit,” he said. “I really have to talk to my coaches about that.” Clemson is a school he would like to visit. Through seven games he has nearly 700 receiving yards and six touchdowns. Johnson says he does not have any favorites.
6-6 junior PJ Dozier of Spring Valley is one of the top players in the country in the junior class despite the fact he will miss the season while recovering from knee surgery. After offers from all over the country, Dozier has his list down to 13 schools according to his father Perry Dozier, a former USC player who is the coach at Spring Valley. That list is USC, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, Louisville, Georgetown, Michigan, Kansas, Ohio State, Indiana, Baylor, Mississippi State and Florida. The Doziers visited North Carolina last weekend to watch practice. “Coach Williams has been down several times to see him,” Perry Dozier said. Dozier might take a visit to Georgetown in the next couple of weeks. He has been to USC and Clemson and both are real players for him. “He likes both of them,” his father said. “He loves the guys over at Clemson as well as South Carolina. Of course, he’d like to be close to home but his selection will be more geared towards what will be the best fit for him.” Dozier will layout his five official visits in December. Coaches from all of the 13 have been in to see him. Dozier is doing extremely well in his rehab according to his father. “Roll the ball out there and he could do tremendously well.” Last season Dozier averaged 18 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds per game.
