OL Donnell Stanley of Latta attended USC's junior day Saturday, the latest in several trips he's made to Columbia.
"It was all pretty good," Stanley said. "I toured around the stadium and talked to coaches, and saw the basketball game. I've been there a bunch of times. They want me to just keep on coming to South Carolina and get my family there for a tour."
That will happen March 13th when he plans to come in for a baseball game. At that time he plans to chat with Gamecock baseball coach Chad Holbrook about possibly playing baseball. Stanley is a first baseman he hit over .430 last season.
Stanley will go to North Carolina for a junior day February 23rd, and he'll probably go to Clemson for a baseball game. He has a top group of USC, Clemson, North Carolina, Alabama and Ohio State with no favorite.
"I'm looking for a good tradition, a winning school," Stanley said. "I'm also looking for good academics and a nice atmosphere." Stanley said there is no timeline for a decision and he's not decided on which national all star game he will play in.
Some of his other offers are Notre Dame, Florida State, LSU, Virginia Tech, NC State and Southern Cal.
