Junior OL Ander Bodkin (6-4 280) of Marianna, FL is gettin
g interest from several schools including USC, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, North Carolina and Alabama. He has visited USC twice and loved what he saw. "I was up there for junior day and for a camp this summer," Bodkin said. "It's a really pretty place. They want me to take an unofficial visit there for a game this season but I'm not sure which game I'm going to."
Bodkin likes coach Shawn Elliott and the way the Gamecocks play. "He's a really good guy and they play fast," he said. "That's how I like to play."
Bodkin's former teammate at Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, OL Cody Gibson, is at USC giving Bodkin a familiarity with the progam. "I haven't talked to him in a while because he is really busy but I know he is happy there," he said.
Over the summer, he also camped at North Carolina, FSU, Florida and Georgia. "I loved North Carolina," Bodkin said. "I liked FSU and Georgia a lot too."
He does not have any favorites but did name USC, UNC, Florida, FSU and Alabama as schools of extreme interest. "I like all the schools looking at me and don't really have a top five but those are the schools I really like," he added.
