RB Tahj Kimble (5-11 196) of Fernandina Beach, FL attended one of USC's camp last month and apparently impressed running backs coach Jay Graham.
"He said he liked me and he said he would keep in touch," Kimble said. "I liked it a lot. I liked the coach a lot. He explained things and showed me things. I felt like I could communicate with him and build a good chemistry." That's the only camp Kimble has attended.
Clemson also checked him out in the spring, and he talked to Tiger running backs coach Andre Powell after his spring game.
Kimble has offers from Boston College, Purdue, Indiana, Iowa State, Middle Tennessee, Tulane and Buffalo. He's also getting interest from Florida State, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and North Carolina. Kimble plans to take official visits to Purdue and Boston College. He does not have favorites.
Last season he rushed for 1211 yards and 8 touchdowns, and he caught 34 passes for 441 yards and seven touchdowns.
