DE Blake McClain (6-4 280) of Jacksonville decommitted from Florida State on Wednesday, and his coach quickly got the word out to several of his college coaching contacts that McClain was back on the market.
One of those was USC's Steve Spurrier Jr.
"I texted Junior and he texted me right back and said he's coming right down," Geiss said.
Spurrier Jr. is expected to be at the school around 2:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon and then will go to a home visit with the family at 7 p.m.
Never miss a local story.
Nebraska, however, got the jump on everyone.
"They were in yesterday to talk to (commitment) Chris Jones and they just lucked into him," Geiss said. "They had an in-home visit last night."
Geiss said right now McClain has an official visit set with Nebraska for this weekend, but that could change after tonight's visit with USC: "He may say the heck with Nebraska."
McClain had been committed to the Seminoles but things started to change for him after defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt left for Georgia.
"They started messing with him, talking about playing the offensive line and grayshirting," Geiss said. "It was not a good fit after Pruitt left. He told Florida State he was moving on."
Last season McClain had 15 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and he caused 5 fumbles.
"The kid's an All American," his coach said. "He's very athletic and can play inside or outside."
