OL Brandon Shell (6-8 295) of Goose Creek and DE Jadeveon Clowney (6-6 240) of South Pointe identified their top two schools Sunday while attending the High School Sports Report Media Day at Wiliams-Brice Stadium in Columbia.
Shell said USC and Georgia are his top two seperating themselves from Clemson, Alabama and Miami whom he said also remain under consideration. "They are good schools and I really like them," he said of USC and Georgia. "I like the environment at both places." Shell said there's no leader between the Gamecocks and Bulldogs.
Last month he visited Georgia with his mother and younger brother. He plans to be at USC Friday when the Gamecocks hold a camp but he will not participate. He says he'll announce a decision on Signing Day.
Clowney said USC and Alabama are now his top two ahead of Clemson, Florida State and LSU. Clowney had just visited USC unofficially Friday with his mother. He said his mother really enjoyed her first visit to the school.
Clowney visited Alabama earlier in the summer.
He will take his official visits before making a decision which he plans to announce at the Under Armour All American Game in January.
