USC OL commitment Lamarius Benson of Covington, GA has been committed since March. Over the weekend he took his official visit with the Gamecocks and he said it went well. But he still plans to take at least one other official visit this weekend.
Benson made the visit by himself as he flew in from an all star game in Texas, and he said he spoke mostly with offensive line coach Eric Wolford who likes him as a guard.
“He said he still wants me but to get in shape and stuff. I weigh 315 pounds and they want me under that. He said he likes my power, I just have to use it the right way.”
Benson said he will take an official visit to UCF this coming weekend. And he said it’s possible he could take an official visit the final weekend before signing day, he just doesn’t know where.
Benson said Will Muschamp told him he still wants him and his commitment strength is “up there” though it’s not 100% at this point. He said he’s had an in home visit with Wolford but Muschamp has not said when he’s coming in.
Benson rated his likelihood of signing with USC February 7th as an 8 on a 10 scale.
