ATH Darius Lipford (6-4 210) of Lenoir, NC was in Columbia Sunday to watch the USC scrimmage. "He didn't get back until late so I haven't spoken with him too much about what he thought," said his father. "I know he liked it though."
According to his father, Lipford is talking a lot about Clemson, USC, Virginia, and Duke. "He hasn't told me those are his favorites but he does mention them a lot," he said. Lipford is hearing a lot from Stanford as well. "They write him two or three times a week," said Lipford's dad. "I saw that and thought, 'that's so far away,'" he quipped.
Lipford is getting more attention from other schools as well as UCLA and Illinois have begun to show interest as well. His offers are from USC, Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Western Carolina, and NC A&T.
Lipford is also a basketball player and may try to play both sports at the next level, according to dad. "He may try to play both but that isn't easy," he said. "He may just have to concentrate on one."
He does not have any favorites.
