LB Tony Straughter (6-1 211) of Georgia Military JC remains a USC target and has the Gamecocks in his top three along with Ole Miss and Tennessee. He talked recently with recruiter Ron Cooper and Straughter plans to attend a USC practice as soon as he can.
"South Carolina is on me pretty strong," Straughter said. "Coach (Ellis) Johnson told me he needs two juco linebackers to come in and he's picked me and (teammate Josh) Dickerson. He feels like we have the best character."
Straughter said he doesn't have a favorite right now. He also has offers from Kansas State and East Carolina.
