DB Keion Payne (6-0 165) of Miami, FL remains a target of USC. Payne says he still hears a lot from the Gamecocks but is going to wait until after the season to take his officials. "I'm just trying to concentrate on the season right now," he said. "I may try to go to a game or something, but I don't know."
Payne has not narrowed his list and says everyone has a chance. His offers include USC, FSU, Ole Miss, Oregon, Wake Forest, Purdue, Tennessee, West Virginia, Virginia, Miami, Oklahoma State, and Michigan.
Payne also plays for the nation's top ranked high school team, St. Thomas Aquinas, who faces Byrnes in two weeks. "We're really looking forward to playing those guys," said Payne.
He says he is still undecided as to how many officials he will take. "I may take all five but I'm not sure yet," he said.
