USC has jumped into the mix with TE Will Tye (6-3 230) of Salisbury, CT. Tye said he talked with recruiter Jeep Hunter for the first time last week. He's not been offered by the Gamecocks. He said he would take an official visit to USC if one is offered.
Tye has offers from Penn State, Florida State, Temple, Wyoming and NC State. He's also getting interest from Missouri, Kansas, Miami, Maryland and North Carolina. He has not set any official visits but plans to with Florida State and Temple. He does not have a favorite and wants to make a decision before the end of the year.
This season Tye had 40 catches for 650 yards and eight touchdowns. He also returned two kickoffs for touchdowns and one punt for a score.
