6-6 2G/SF Shane Southwell of New York City is a USC target and is interested in the Gamecocks. "I talked with coach Boynton about 3-4 days ago," Southwell said. "He said they are coming up to New York soon. They are very interested."
Southwell also has offers from Marquette, Kansas State, Providence and St. Johns. He's also getting interest from Miami and Kentucky. He said USC, Marquette and Kansas State will be three of his in home visits, and he plans to schedule official visits with the offering schools. He said those five are recruiting him with the same effort and he doesn't have a favorite.
Southwell is not sure if he'll sign early or in the spring. He only played in 12 games last season because he transfered from another school. He averaged 11 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists per game. He also plays some point guard.
