RB Derrell Scott of Havelock, NC has had USC out front for some time and the Gamecocks continue to lead for his services.
Scott attended a junior day at USC this past Saturday where he had an opportunity to visit with several coaches.
He met with head coach Steve Spurrier, running back coach Everett Sands and defensive line coach Zeke Adams.
"They were just telling me how much they want me to be a Gamecock," said Scott. "They're telling me that I'm the number one (running) back on their board and they would love to have me."
Never miss a local story.
As for coach Adams, Scott said, "I think he is taking over my area," which would make Adams Scott's primary recruiter.
Scott has plans to attend other junior days but has not scheduled any trips. He has no time frame for a decision.
