DB Corey Addison (6-1 195) of Jacksonville, FL was in Columbia on Saturday to watch the USC/UGA football game. Addison says he is firm in his commitment to the Gamecocks and was really impressed with the defense.
"I knew they were good but I didn't expect them to be that good," he said. "I'm really looking forward to playing with those guys."
Addison's high school team is off to a strong start at 2-0 and he says the defense is very good. He says his coach often puts him on an island allowing him to shut down that side of the field but says he still hasn't seen much action.
"They really aren't throwing my way that much."
Never miss a local story.
Addison says he will take all of his official visits but is not sure where he'll take them. "They give me five and I'm going to take five." He thinks it is a good opportunity to travel. "I want to take some (visits) far away from home. Maybe an Illinois or a Michigan." Addison hopes to visit USC in December.
His recruiter is Steve Spurrier Jr. and he says he has regular contact with him. Florida continues to show interest in Addison. He runs a 4.5 40.
