DB Kaleb Chalmers of Greenwood has been on the move most Saturday’s this season getting to as many games as he can. He has been to Clemson, USC, North Carolina, Duke, Tennessee and Georgia and is going to Georgia Tech this weekend. He was at Clemson for the Florida State game and got a strong message from the Tigers who have offered. “They are highly interested in me,” Chalmers said. “They want me to come in and play.” Chalmers said Clemson, Tennessee, North Carolina and Duke are making the strongest push for him and each has offered along with Stanford and Georgia Southern. USC has shown interest but has not offered according to Chalmers. Chalmers does not have a favorite at this point and won’t make his decision until the summer. This season at cornerback he has 60 tackles and 2 interceptions.
Junior RB Bryce Love of Wake Forest, NC received an offer from Ohio State last month and took his first visit to Columbus this past weekend. The son of a former USC track athlete enjoyed his trip up North. “I like the way coach (Urban) Meyer runs the program and the way he acts towards the players and the students,” Love said. “It was a good experience. I would like to get back up there.” Love has 16 offers to include USC, Clemson, Tennessee, North Carolina, Stanford, NC State, Duke, Arkansas, East Carolina and Virginia Tech. He has been to games at Clemson, Georgia, East Carolina, North Carolina, NC State and Ohio State this season with plans to attend the Clemson-USC game in November. His father, Chris Love, said that they will try to make it to Tennessee as well. Love does not have any favorites but acknowledged interest in USC and Clemson. “My mom and dad went to USC but I also know people that went to Clemson…so I like them both,” he said. Love is approaching 1,500 yards on the season and has three kick returns for scores.
USC remains the leader for junior DB Desmond Cain of Delray Beach, FL. The Gamecocks are his only offer thus far and he’s also getting interest from Miami, Michigan State, Indiana, Central Florida, North Carolina and Nebraska. Cain visited USC for the Black Magic camp. “I liked everything about it,” Cain said. “It is so well-organized and they know what they’re doing. I love the coaching staff.” Cain said he’s not heard from his Gamecock recruiter Grady Brown in a while but that does not concern him. “No sir, not really because when I went up there for camp coach Grady really showed an interest. I think I should be alright,” he said adding that he thinks the Gamecocks would take a commitment if he were ready to make one. Right now he does not have a timetable to make that final decision. Cain said he plans to call Brown Wednesday to reconnect with him. His only visit this season so far was to Central Florida where he saw the Knights host USC. Cain does not have any other visits planned but wants to return to Columbia next summer. Cain plays cornerback and has two interceptions this season, but he’s also playing a lot of receiver.
