WR Tyquan Johnson of Sylvania, GA grabbed a USC offer in early June and it looks now like he’s going to grab a place in the Gamecocks’ 2018 recruiting class. Johnson plans to attend Saturday’s Spurs Up Cookout in Columbia with his parents and younger sister and he said Tuesday night the possibility of a commitment exists.
“Me and the coaches want to see my parents come around the campus so they can like it, and we’ll just take it from there,” Johnson said.
He talks every day with Will Muschamp and receivers coach Bryan McClendon and he feels they are ready for him to take the plunge.
“It’s a chance, it’s a chance,” Johnson said. “If they’d have me, it would be great. I’d love it. I’ve seen the campus, it’s just my momma. You know, you’ve got to let the parents see the campus and make sure everything is alright.”
Johnson has not visited anywhere else this summer and he said at this point he’s not talking to any other schools. He said he’s already a full qualifier but will not graduate early so that he can run track for his high school in the spring.
Some of his other offers included Mississippi State, East Carolina and Syracuse.
Last season for the Screven County Gamecocks Johnson caught 32 passes for 822 yards and 13 touchdowns.
