DB TJ Gurley (5-10 189) of Cairo, GA visited USC last weekend and picked up an offer from the Gamecocks. "I really liked it," he said. "It's a nice place. They are up and coming. They are going to make a run for it."
John Butler recruits Gurley for the Gamecocks but he spent most of his time on his trip with defensive coaches Ellis Johnson, Lorenzo Ward and Jeep Hunter. The Gamecocks like him for corner and safety.
Gurley also has offers from Tennessee, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Illinois and Louisville. Gurley visited Clemson for a junior day but said he hasn't heard much from the Tigers.
He plans to attend some camps this summer with USC and Clemson possible stops. There is no favorite and Gurley has no timetable for a decision.
