OL James Carpenter (6-5 300) of Coffeyville JC, KS was scheduled to visit USC this weekend, but he will go instead to Texas Tech and reschedule the trip with the Gamecocks. Carpenter has visited Iowa State. He will take an unofficial visit to Kansas November 15th followed by official visits to Ole Miss and Alabama, though that Alabama visit may have to be changed if the Crimson Tide is playing for the SEC Championship December 6th.
Carpenter recently was offered by USC, and the Augusta native was glad to get that. "I'm real excited," he said. "It's only an hour from home and it's the SEC." Carpenter said he's down to the six schools he's visiting and he doesn't have a favorite.
