Junior OL Brian Chaffin (6-2 270) of Charlotte attended a camp at USC this summer and likes what the Gamecocks have to offer. He has built a good relationship with USC assistant Shawn Elliott.
"Coach Elliott and I have gotten to know each other and I really like him," said Chaffin. "I like South Carolina and have a couple of friends that are students down there. They have a great atmosphere and obviously they play in the SEC." The Gamecocks like Chaffin at center.
His offers are from Mississippi State and Charlotte with interest from several schools including USC. He has camped at Florida, Georgia, NC State and Michigan and he heads to Mississippi State this weekend for an unofficial visit.
"I'm looking forward to getting down there to see the school and see what they have to offer," he said. "They like me at center as well and they told my coach they like how I get off the line. I also have a 4.0 (G.P.A) and they like that too."
Chaffin would like to attend a game in Columbia this fall. He named a top five of USC, Mississippi State, Georgia, NC State and Charlotte in no order.
