LB Jordan Montgomery (6-1 198) of Groveland, FL said Wednesday night he's moving towards a commitment to USC possibly within the next few weeks.
"All the coaches there seem down to earth," said Montgomery who has family in South Carolina. "The position they are recruiting me for (spur) is perfect for me. I think I have a pretty good chance of getting on the field pretty soon."
Montgomery said he favors the Gamecocks over Ole Miss and Central Florida and plans to make an unofficial visit to USC within a couple of weeks. He also has offers from Iowa State, Arkansas, Maryland and Western Kentucky.
Montgomery can play linebacker, corner or safety. Last season he had 86 tackles with 2 sacks and 1 interception.
