LB TJ Minniffee of Lebanon, TN plans to visit USC July 19th and with an offer in hand from the Gamecocks, he’s excited to see what they have to offer in person so he can move forward in the decision making process.
“I think is in the works soon, I can’t really say when but it will be pretty soon,” Minniffee said. “I like South Carolina a lot. I’ll be at Louisville on the 15th, I like them a lot, and also I like Purdue. Really it’s between those three. Coach Bentley is talking about how excited he is about getting me up on campus. Coach Muschamp is wanting us to create a pipeline from South Carolina to Tennessee, so Chris Bell, Cain McWilliams and TJ Carter, they are really high up on those three guys also and those are good friends of mine.”
Minniffee said those three also plan to visit USC this month. The four of them train together at the same place and all four have offers from the Gamecocks.
Minniffee said the Gamecocks like him for the Buck linebacker position. He said there is no favorite with him at this point but that could change quickly once he visits USC.
“There is a chance I will commit but I really don’t know for sure,” he said adding that he might also work in a visit to Purdue this month.
Last season Minniffee had 70 tackles with 8 sacks and 1 interception.
