Junior OL Donnell Stanley of Latta plans to make an unofficial visit to USC Saturday for the East Carolina game. Stanley has the Gamecocks in his top five along with Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and LSU.
He also has offers from Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, NC State, and Florida. Auburn and Florida State are also showing interest. Stanley said he received 24 letters from the FSU coaching staff alone on Tuesday.
Stanley has visited USC and Clemson in the past but says he doesn’t have a preference about going to an in state school. “I like going to both places but it’s all the same right now,” he said adding that he does not have a favorite. He noted that the in state schools, Alabama and North Carolina are recruiting him particularly hard.
He won’t make a decision until next summer.
