DB Chris Lammons of Ft. Lauderdale will make his official visit to USC this weekend. Today coaches from Wisconsin were in to see him. USC coaches will visit next week. Lammons is a former Florida commitment but is now focused on the Gamecocks and the Badgers. “He’s very high on South Carolina,” said his coach Steve Davis. “He’s developing a real good relationship with coach (Grady) Brown. There’s playing time there and the type of scheme they run in the secondary, he likes that. South Carolina has a really good chance.” As does Wisconsin at this point. “He has a former teammate there in Sojourn Shelton and he can get on the field there real early. He’ll have a better gauge when he gets back (from USC).” Davis said Lammons will visit USC by himself. His parents are deceased and his sister is his legal guardian. Davis expects Lammons to wait until Signing Day to make a final decision.

Junior QB Marquane Goodman of West Florence has USC and NC State as his top choices. His sole offer is from Appalachian State with interest coming from USC, NC State, Arkansas and Tennessee. “I’ve liked Carolina ever since I camped there,” Goodman said. “I love their coaches. They tell you like it is.” Goodman will visit Appalachian State in the near future and hopes to visit USC as well. “When I talk to the coaches (at Appalachian State), they just tell me how they want me to come up for a visit and go watch a basketball game,” he said. “From all of the research I’ve done on them, it seems like a really good school. They have good academics and it seems like a nice, quiet place to be.” The school will move to the FBS level and that is another plus with Goodman. Clemson and NC State are two visits Goodman has made enjoying both game atmospheres. He will attend a Rivals camp this summer and plans to attend several others.

And I’ve been talking to coach (USC Steve) Spurrier Jr. and I will visit USC. I’ve not been there. I talk to coach Spurrier Jr. about every week. He likes me as a slot receiver.” Hines also plans to visit Clemson, Ohio State, Duke, Tennessee and Florida State. He’s also in regular contact with Duke, Florida State, Nebraska, Wake Forest. Tennessee and Virginia Tech are his most recent offers.
