Will Muschamp continues to scour the graduate transfer market for players who might help his USC program in 2017. This weekend former Duke starting quarterback Thomas Sirk will make an official visit. And the middle April former Minnesota DE Gaelin Elmore (6-6 275) will visit the Gamecocks to see if that’s for whom he wants to play his final season.
Elmore said he was offered by Muschamp on Friday and he has set an official visit with the Gamecocks for April 14th.
“They contacted me a couple days ago,” Elmore said. “I’m super excited. It’s a great honor and something I have to consider greatly. I know he (Muschamp) is a defensive coach and puts people in the NFL. I definitely know the history of the defensive line at USC and the history there. It’s a great situation.”
Elmore will visit either Oklahoma or Arizona next weekend and East Carolina the weekend after the USC visit.
As a junior last season, Elmore played in all 13 games starting six. He registered 16 tackles with 4 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. He also was named Academic All Big 10 with a major in communication studies.
As a sophomore Elmore totalled 12 tackles with 3.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. And as a freshman he made 11 tackles with 1 sacks.
Elmore is a native of Somerset, Wisconsin.
