WR Darius Slayton of Norcross, GA said Wednesday night he will take an official visit to USC this coming weekend. It’s the first official visit he has scheduled. Slayton visited USC in June for a camp and got a tour of the campus but Saturday will be his first game there.
“I like them,” Slayton said. “I want to go on the visit to hopefully increase my interest. I just like them. I like the institution, coach Spurrier and stuff like that.”
Slayton also plays cornerback for his high school but the Gamecocks, who lost committed receiver Michael Bowman to legal issues, likes him as a receiver.
“They are recruiting me offensively, a guy to be a game changing type person,” Slayton said. He had 33 catches for 940 yards and 8 touchdowns last season.
Slayton also has talked recently with Georgia and Auburn and he was in Athens for the Clemson game. He said he doesn’t have a favorites list right now though at one time he had USC, Clemson, Georgia, Auburn, LSU, Ohio State, Alabama, Tennessee and Florida on such a list. He’s no longer hearing from Clemson.
Slayton has a bye week this week said he and his parents may arrive Friday night in Columbia or may wait until Saturday morning. He wants to make his decision sometime this fall.
