DE Javon Kinlaw of Goose Creek and Jones JC, MS and OL Tony Gray of Loganville, GA Wednesday night released a short list and an official visit list respectively, and USC was included in each.
Kinlaw named his top three schools as USC, Southern Cal and Alabama. He has set official visits to Southern Cal for January 14th, Alabama January 21st and USC January 28th.
“I have no specific order, but South Carolina because it’s my home school state and I love everything about the place,” Kinlaw said in explaining why these three made his short list. “Alabama because its one of the best schools in the country football and academic wise. And Southern Cal because I have a great relationship with the D-line coach. Me and him have a relationship that I don’t have with any other coach I’ve ever spoken to. Relationships will play a big role in my college decision.”
The official visits will be the first to schools this season for Kinlaw since he couldn’t make any during the season.
Gray announced his list for official visits as USC, California, Oklahoma, Florida and Missouri. He did not have dates for his visits in January. He has not yet taken any official visits. Gray had an in-home visit from USC in late November.
