USC is looking to add immediate depth to the offensive line and has offered two junior college tackles in the past two days.
The Gamecocks went back in on a player they recruited for the 2011 class but did not land in Jordan Prestwood (6-6 310), a native of Tampa who attends Arizona Western JC. He was a tight end coming out of high school but has grown into a much sought after offensive tackle.
He signed with Florida State in 2011 but later transferred to Notre Dame. He left South Bend and eventually landed in Yuma.
Prestwood tweeted Wednesday night that he had picked up an offer from the Gamecocks. Florida State, Auburn, Ole Miss, Cal and San Diego State have also offered.
Never miss a local story.
And Chad Mavety (6-5 320) of Nassau JC, NY reported a Gamecock offer as well on his Twitter page.
Like Prestwood, Mavety is a highly recruited JUCO target and plays for the 6th ranked team in the country.
Ohio State, Florida State and Alabama are three other offers for him.
