USC recruiter Bobby Bentley saw LB TJ Minniffee of Lebanon, TN in a camp near Nashville in June and verbally offered him soon after. Minniffee later attended a camp in Columbia where he worked out in front of Will Muschamp and the defensive coaches. The interest is still there between the two parties.
“I’m still talking to them,” Minniffee said. “They know that I’m not really looking to make a decision anytime soon. I’ll probably go thru all of my officials and make my decision then.”
Minniffee said he’s hearing from Bentley and the Gamecock coach, according to Minniffee, hasn’t really pushed for a decision from him.
Minniffee said he’s looking at USC, Texas A&M, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Louisville and Cincinnati for his official visits. He said Cincinnati and UAB have been talking to him strongly of late and Texas A&M recruiter John Chavis plans to scout his first game.
Minniffee said there is no leader but he does like Cincinnati a lot.
