Tyler Banks, a 2017 defensive back out of Winder, Ga., was at South Carolina for the Tennessee game.
“It’s was great, loved the everything about it,” Banks said. “Jamyest Williams told me before I came it’s a great place to be when it comes to football. I truly enjoyed it and hopefully will be back soon.”
Banks camped at USC last summer. This season he’s also been to Clemson, Georgia Tech and Auburn for games. He’s not received any FBS offers at this point.
“So far all they have told me is to finish the season strong and sees what happen after that,” Banks said.
