DL Dexter Wideman of Saluda continues to struggle with his final decision. He remains committed to Florida State but is still considering USC. When asked if his commitment gave the Seminoles the edge, he said, "I mean...I'm just going to wait and take my officials (visits) and I'll make my decision after that."

Wideman is sure of one thing, it will come down to these two schools. "Nobody else is talking to me because they know it's between them two," he said.

Wideman will take his official visit to USC January 17th and has not scheduled his visit to Tallahassee. He will receive a visit from Florida State Thursday at his school and expects to schedule his official visit then.

USC assistant coach G.A. Mangus has already been by to see Wideman recently. "He just told me that I was looking good and to keep doing what I'm doing," Wideman said. "We scheduled my official visit while he was here."

With the decision weighing on Wideman, he is trying to turn his focus elsewhere for the time being. "Right now, I'm just getting ready for the Shrine Bowl and the Under-Armour game," he said. He does not have a leader.
