USC started recruiting DE Taylor Stallworth (6-3 280) of Mobile, AL in February and was his first major offer. And right now the Gamecocks are the leaders for his services.
"I"m highly interested in them," Stallworth said. "It's a great place that fits me and I'm thinking about going there. They are number one on my list. They were the first offer I had. They have a great coaching staff and a great team. The past five years they've been a great program."
Stallworth said he's in regular contact with recruiter Kirk Botkin. "He wants me a lot," he said. Stallworth will attend USC's camp July 27th. He is going to Alabama this weekend, Mississippi State July 19th and Auburn July 21st.
Stallworth has Auburn second on his list. The Tigers have not offered but he expects one from the Tigers. His other offers include Mississippi State, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Louisville, NC State, Minnesota, Florida State and Southern Miss.
Stallworth plans to make his decision before school starts August 20th and said as of right now he's 80% on a commitment to USC.
Stallworth also plays outside linebacker and had 57 tackles and 4 sacks last season.
