Saturday South Carolina entertained offensive lineman Riley Locklear of Huntington, West Virginia. On June 1, another offensive lineman from Huntington, Billy Ross, plans to visit USC as well. Though they're from the same city, Locklear and Ross go to different schools. But they have the same Gamecock recruiter in offensive line coach Shawn Elliott. Elliott recently checked in on Ross and that's when he set up his June visit.
