6-8 Malcolm Rhett of Richland Northeast made an official visit to Tennessee State over the weekend where he visited with new head coach John Cooper, a former USC assistant. The visit went very well.
Cooper will make an in home visit with Rhett and his father, former Gamecock star Joe Rhett, on Thursday. While in Columbia, Cooper will also make an in home visit with 6-8 Mike Green of Ridge View.
Rhett's first choice is USC. The Gamecocks are interested in Rhett but would like him to go to a prep school in 2010 before possibly signing him for their 2011 class. That is not an option Rhett favors right now.
Rhett is scheduled to visit Murray State September 18th.
