Class of 2015 OL Steven Gonzalez of Union city, NJ had hoped to visit USC this football season to attend a game but now says those plans may be scratched. He continues to hear from the Gamecocks and remains interested.
"I wish I could go to a game this year but I don't think I'm going to be able to make it," he said. "I still hear from coach (G.A.) Mangus. He told me to watch the game this past weekend. Unfortunately they lost but that doesn't change anything. I still think they'll continue to get better and compete for a title."
He has offers from USC, Rutgers, Louisville, Boston College, Virginia, UMass and Syracuse have offered with interest coming from Miami, Florida State, Alabama, Penn State, Ohio State and Notre Dame among others. "I am still getting letters, schools are still following me on twitter and on Facebook," said Gonzalez. "So far, so good."
Among the schools that have not offered, Gonzalez said the ones showing the most interest are Alabama and Oregon. He will visit Rutgers this weekend and may attend the Penn State-Michigan game.
Never miss a local story.
"I'll probably have to wait until the off-season before I can visit South Carolina," he added.
