USC offered LB Jalston Fowler (6-0 240) of Mobile, AL in the spring and he's giving the Gamecocks strong consideration.
"South Carolina and Ole Miss are my top two," Fowler said. "South Carolina is out front because of coach Spurrier, and I know Captain Munnerlyn. I talk to him." In fact, their most recent conversation was July 3rd.
Fowler also has offers from South Alabama, Marshall and Arkansas State. He's also hearing from Alabama and Auburn. He plans to visit Alabama July 20th and Ole Miss on the 26th. And he'll visit USC "whenever I can." And Fowler said he could commit to the Gamecocks when he makes that visit.
Fowler said he last talked with Gamecock recruiter Ron Cooper in the spring, and he gets regular mail from the Gamecocks. Fowler, who also plays defensive end and running back, totaled about 60 tackles last season.
