OL Thomas Hart (6-4 280) of Orangeburg-Wilkinson still has USC high on his list. Hart injured his left knee during his junior year but says by the end of this season he had full confidence in it. His only offer is SC State but he is getting interest from USC, Clemson, NC State, Duke, Connecticutt, and Western Carolina. He says NC State is showing the most interest of those schools.
Hart talked with USC assistant coach Shane Beamer earlier this year and says he was told that USC was pretty high on him. "He told me they were trying to recruit a junior college guy on the line and they weren't sure how many scholarships would be available," said Hart. His top three schools are USC, NC State, and UConn. He would like to study engineering in college so he is looking for the right match. He did not name a favorite. Hart says he is hoping to get in touch with coaches soon to begin scheduling his official visits.
