At the Shrine Bowl earlier this month DL Poona Ford of Hilton Head said USC had re-entered the picture with him, and despite his commitment to Louisville, he was giving the Gamecocks renewed consideration. A couple of weeks later, that situation has not changed.
"I might set up an official visit with USC," Ford said. "It depends on how my official visit with Louisville goes."
Ford said he's continuing to get a strong push from the Gamecocks. "I talk to coach Sands pretty much every day," he said. "He's been asking when I'm going to take my visit. I like Louisville but South Carolina is my hometown team. Everything is based off my visit to Louisville. At the Shrine Bowl, I was chilling with some of the South Carolina commitments (Shaq Davidson, Kevin Crosby Jr.) and we kind of bonded. But as of right now, I'm committed to Louisville."
And a third school in the mix, according to Ford, is Missouri. He'll make the final call on Signing Day.
