DE Dante Sawyer of Suwanee, GA is being hotly pursued by USC, Auburn, Tennessee and Georgia. Those are his top four schools and Sawyer said Sunday night none of the four stands above the others right now.
"There's no favorite, I'm just playing it cool right now," Sawyer said. He's not yet visited USC but hopes to at some point this season. He will be at Saturday's USC-Georgia game in Athens. Sawyer said he wants to take his official visits before making his decision.
Working in USC's favor with Sawyer is his relationship with recruiter Deke Adams.
"I just like coach Adams," he said. "He was the first one to offer me when he was at North Carolina and I've always followed him.. And I like how they let their defensive ends play."
Never miss a local story.
In last Friday's game Sawyer had 11 tackles with 5 tackles for loss. Last season he totaled 97 tackles with 7 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 2 interceptions.
