DL Maurice Couch (6-3 290) of Garden City JC, KS has a list of top schools which inludes USC.
"My top school is Kansas," said Couch. "I like everything about it. The coaches are great. That's why they're my favorite. South Carolina is my second favorite. I always admired Steve Spurrier growing up and wanted to play for him. They have a need on the defensive line and they're defense is always good." He says Ole Miss is third on his list.
Couch says he is supposed to take his first visit to USC for the showcase camp but is not sure if he will make it. "I want to go but I need to get with my (defensive coordinator) to see what I am going to do," he said.
Couch has offers from USC, Kansas, Ole Miss, Marshall, Southern Cal, Tennessee, UAB, Eastern Michigan, and Arkansas State. He has also garnered interest from North Carolina, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.
Never miss a local story.
He plans to commit after Christmas and could wait until National Signing Day. "It depends on how I play this year," added Couch.
