WR Lamar Scruggs (6-4 212) of Jacksonville, FL has set three official visits according to his coach. He will visit USC January 17th, Ole Miss on the 23rd and South Florida on the 30th. Scruggs also is looking at Florida and Illinois for visits. He has taken unofficial visits to USC, Florida and South Florida.
"Word on the street here is that he's going to South Carolina," said coach Joe Reynolds. "His mother is enamored with Steve Spurrier Jr. Coach Spurrier is coming in soon. That's probably all that he needs to seal the deal."
Reynolds said Florida's efforts were hurt by the departure of recruiter Dan Mullen to Mississippi State and the Gators have not picked back up on Scruggs since then. But he added Ole Miss was making a strong push and might be the strongest competition for USC right now.
