DL Maurice Couch (6-3 290) of Garden City JC, KS was an interested TV viewer of the USC-Tennessee game Saturday. Couch has the Gamecocks and Vols tied for the lead right now and kept a close eye on the play of both defensive units. "The game had no real impact (on my decision)," Couch said. "I was focused on both of their defenses."
USC recruiter Brad Lawing talked with Couch Sunday afternoon. "He said I've got a chance to do someting very special and make an immediate impact when I get there," Couch said. "He wants me to come in right away and help."
Couch has made his official visit to USC and will try to get for an unofficial visit during his Christmas break. He will make his official visit to Tennessee November 12th. And he's still considering setting up a visit with Southern Cal.
