There has been an exodus of players from the USC basketball program this week but incoming freshman guard Damien Leonard remains steadfast in his plans to join Darrin Horn's program.
"We saw some stuff that Damien Leonard wants out," Leonard's AAU coach Willis Holiday said Friday afternoon. "That's not true. Damien Leonard wants to be a Gamecock. We're coming to play for the University of South Carolina. Damien signed with USC. He wants to help change the program. And he wants to play for Darrin Horn."
Leonard and Horn are scheduled to talk via phone this afternoon.
Horn's other signee for the 2011 class, 6-8 Anthony Gill of Charlotte, later Friday said he, too, was still committed to being a Gamecock.
