Florida State commitment DL Dexter Wideman of Saluda was among the prospects in attendance last Saturday night in Columbia for the USC-Vanderbilt game. Wideman went with several of his Saluda teammates according to his coach Doug Painter.
"It was a game he wanted to go to," Painter said. "He's still talking about Florida State. He's still saying that. I don't think that anything has changed along those lines."
Wideman committed to the Seminoles in July but has not totally closed the door on the Gamecocks according to Painter.
"I feel sure he'll go back to Carolina again. I'm just guessing that there is still a chance there." Wideman has not set any official visits at this point.
Never miss a local story.
As for his performance this season, Painter said he couldn't be happier with Wideman.
"He's having his best season," the coach said. "He's more consistent because he's in better shape."
DL Kwamelle Barnes of Saluda also was at Saturday's game. He has an offer from SC State and is getting interest from Appalachian State and North Greenville.
