DB Kendall Randolph of Tallahassee has Louisville out front with Miami and USC rounding out his top three. He plans to make a decision in the next month.
"I want to commit in early September," said Randolph. "If I were to commit today, it would be Louisville." Early playing time could be a factor in his decision. "I just feel good about the coaches and the relationships I've built (with Louisville)," he said. "I think it's a place that I can go and make an early impact."
The Gamecocks are still high on his list but there may be some factors steering Randolph in a different direction.
"I think they're only taking two cornerbacks in this class and they've already got one committed," said Randolph. "And I think they're heavy on another DB so that's why they're probably not my leader right now."
Never miss a local story.
USC was his first offer and has continued to recruit Randolph. He cited that as the reason the Gamecocks remain in his top three.
