Former Abbeville running back Qua Gilchrist (6-2 230), now a linebacker at Butler County JC, KS, plans to sign with USC tomorrow and enroll in January. Gilchrist made an unofficial visit to USC over the weekend and was offered by the Gamecocks Monday. Gilchrist had been committed to Houston. He also drew recruiting interest from Kansas and Kansas State.
Gilchrist was a North-South Game participant in 2007. He committed to Newberry in January 2008 but later signed with Butler. He will have three years to play three. The BigSpur.com was the first to report Gilchrist's involvement with USC.
