USC recruiter GA Mangus will visit with QB Tanner McEvoy and DB Sheldon Royster Friday on a return visit to New Jersey.
McEvoy said Thursday he'll get together with Mangus before he leaves for his official visit to North Carolina. McEvoy said going into that visit, he's got the Gamecocks out front.
"You could say I've got South Carolina on top because I've done my official visit there. The bar is set and I'll be able to compare schools."
McEvoy's parents will join him on the visit to Chapel Hill. McEvoy said he hopes to have a decision next week between the Gamecocks and Tar Heels though it might take him until the following week to decide.
Never miss a local story.
Royster is down to USC and Rutgers, and McEvoy feels USC may have the edge with him, too. Royster plans to make a decision with his coach and family Monday but no announcement day has been set.
