WR Alshon Jeffrey (6-3 217) of Calhoun County said he will be at USC Saturday night for the LSU game. This will be his third unofficial visit to USC for a game this season. Jeffrey has been committed to Southern Cal since the summer, and he said he's "95 percent" committed to the Trojans. But he said he will set official visits with USC and Kentucky. He's not sure if he'll visit Clemson. Jeffrey said no other schools are factors right now.
"I talk to Southern Cal every week," he said. "They keep me posted on everything going on, and they ask me how school is going and they're trying to keep up with my season. Coach Beamer (USC) and I talk like every week. I'll call him or he'll call me."
Jeffrey said he will be watching the Gamecock offense closely Saturday night. "I want to see how the quarterback position does," he said. "I want to see how the quarterback develops."
The question remains as to whether Jeffrey will stick with his commitment to Southern Cal all the way to the end. Right now, he can't answer that. "I don't know," he said. "It's just coming down to Signing Day. With everything going on, coaches getting fired, Bowden getting fired, anything can happen."
Never miss a local story.
Jeffrey said teammates Davis Sims (Kentucky commitment) and junior defensive back David Watson, brother of Tennessee cornerback DeAngelo Willingham, will join him in Columbia for the game.
