USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford was in touch with OL Jerome Carvin of Cordova, TN Tuesday night still trying to land his final official visit. Carvin maintains interest in the Gamecocks and is considering them for that last official along with a few others.
Carvin has official visits set with Tennessee September 30th, Mississippi State October 13th, Alabama October 20th and Arkansas December 1st. He said Wolford wants him to visit USC November 11th for the Florida game. He said it’s a big possibility he’ll visit USC that weekend since he has an off week. He’s also looking at Michigan, Indiana and Memphis for the 5th official.
Carvin said Wolford is using his experience in the NFL and previously at USC as reasons why he should give the Gamecocks a closer look. ‘
“He always talks about him being in the NFL and he was at South Carolina before going to the NFL and he turned the offensive line play around, and he turned it around this year,” Carvin said. “He was saying I’d fit great with them, that I’m athletic and he likes that I’m athletic for my size.”
Carvin said he does not have any favorites at this point. Last weekend he went to the games at Memphis and Mississippi State. He said the Gamecocks want him to come in for this week’s game but he can’t make it.
Carvin said he will be an early graduate and he’s being recruited for guard and tackle. He said Wolford likes him as a guard.
