DB Chris Davis (5-11 185) of Birmingham made an official visit to USC for the Clemson weekend. He was the only official visitor for the Gamecocks.
"The visit went good," Davis said. "It was great out here. They have a lot of good players. I had a good time here." Cory Addison served as his player host. Davis was given a tour of the facilities and the campus, and he met with head coach Steve Spurrier before leaving. He did not commit.
"South Carolina is my favorite but I want to look around and see what's out there," Davis said. "They're hoping I'm going to be a Gamecock."
Davis played quarterback most of the season but is being recruited as a cornerback. He has offers from USC, Arkansas State and UAB. Auburn is scheduled to be in his home Wednesday and he's looking for an offer then from the Tigers. And he's scheduled for an official visit to Mississippi State January 15th.
Never miss a local story.
The Gamecocks may or may not push the issue with Davis as they are expecting commitments from John Fulton of Manning and Victor Hampton of Darlington. Both were at Saturday's game. Fulton plans to announce December 17th while Hampton is waiting until the US Army All American Game. Commitments from those two likely will fill the Gamecocks' need in the secondary.
Defensive backs and Vanderbilt commitments Kenny Ladler of Stone Mountain, GA and Sharrod Golightly of Decatur, GA also made unofficial visits to USC for the Clemson game. Again, because of their numbers and the expected commitments from Fulton and Hampton, the Gamecocks probably won't push forward with those two.
