WR Chris Godwin of Middletown, DE has emerged as a major USC target and plans to visit this spring. He camped with the Gamecocks last summer and got his first look then at the program.
"I was impressed with it," Godwin said. "The facilities are top notch. Coach Mangus said he's very interested and I'm one of the top receivers on the board."
Godwin has been to Maryland and Penn State for junior days. He will visit Ohio State this coming weekend and will Rutgers the following weekend. "No one is standing out," he said. "South Carolina is definitely a school I'm interested in. I'm not going to rush a decision."
Godwin has 16 offers including USC, Stanford, Ohio State, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland, Cal, Boston College and NC State.
Last season Godwin had 42 catches for 900 yards and 12 touchdowns.
