Melbourne, Fla., RB Lavonte Valentine continues to climb recruiting charts with offers from Notre Dame, Louisville, Southern Cal, and Oregon, but South Carolina football was in early with Bobby Bentley, and Will Muschamp’s Gamecocks are still in it.
The Gamecocks got a boost in recruiting from a top-rated pitcher, as Owen White (Class of 2018) committed to USC. The right-handed pitcher is the No. 24 player in the country, according to Perfect Game.
Tyler Shough of Chandler, Ariz., received his first Power Five offer from the Gamecocks and he visited Columbia earlier this month. Since then he’s added offers from Michigan, Alabama, Washington State and Missouri.
