DL Peyton Newell of Hiawatha, KS will release his top five list on June 1st. Right now he has only four spots to fill.
"South Carolina is definitely in that top five," Newell said. "I have a few in mind but I want to make sure I keep in state priorities."
USC recruiter GA Mangus recently visited Newell and plans to return before the contact period ends. "South Carolina is definitely a school I'm interested in," Newell said. "They've been there since the beginning of the recruiting process. I was comfortable around the players (when he visited)."
Newell said USC will get one of his visits this summer. He said he doesn't have a clear #1 right now but "South Carolina is in the mix to be number one." He will make his decision before his football season.
Other schools that have been high up on his list include Georgia, Southern Cal, Nebraska and Kansas.
