TE Kalan Ritche of Goose Creek attended USC's scrimmage and junior day last Saturday and continues to have the Gamecocks at the front of his list. He brought his family with him and their interaction with the Gamecock coaches was big to him.
"All the coaches got to meet my family and my mother really likes the school," Ritchie said. "That's a big factor. They went more in depth about education and much resources I would have if I went there."
Ritchie also has visited Clemson, Georgia and Tennessee. He is taking the ACT this Saturday so he probably won't make it to a spring game. He plans to visit Kentucky, LSU, Florida, NC State, Alabama and Georgia.
And he's not rushing into a final decision. 'I'm waiting," he said.
Never miss a local story.
Ritchie holds offers from USC, Clemson, Connecticut, Virginia Tech and NC State.
