2018 WR Sam James (6-0 160) of Richmond Hill, GA made an unofficial visit to USC for the Massachusetts game. It was his second visit to USC after coming in last spring. James has a USC offer and the Gamecocks sit in good shape with him early in the process.
“As of now I would say I’m favoring South Carolina, but it’s early,” James said. “I just loved it there. I saw Coach McClendon and he said he was happy to see me. I also talked to Coach Muschamp. They want me back up there soon.”
James is a multi-position player who also works at corner and safety, but the Gamecocks clearly want him for receiver.
“They like how I’m explosive off the ball and when I get the ball in my hands, it’s hard to stop me,” James said.
He also has offers from Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern, Central Michigan, Southern Mississippi and Coastal Carolina. He is hoping for offers from Georgia, Wake Forest, Kentucky and Duke.
James also camped at Clemson last summer and he plans to go to Clemson for the USC game. He also plans a return trip to USC for another game this season.
Last season James had 22 catches for 516 yards and 6 touchdowns. This season he has 20 catches for 560 yards and 4 scores.
