OL Shane Lemieux of Yakima, WA was offered last week by USC and is very interested in the Gamecocks. In fact, he will visit them weekend after next. And while in the Palmetto State, he may get over to Clemson as well.
Lemieux's father lives in Lancaster and a friend of his made the contact with USC that got the ball rolling with the Gamecocks. The same friend has also made contact with Clemson and something could be brewing their as well.
"I might have a visit to Clemson too because I'll be down there for about four or five days," Lemieux said. "The Gamecock, Clemson rivalry, I mean I'm a Gamecock but I'm definitely keeping it open. That would be my first ACC offer. I just want to see where Clemson sees itself going. I'd love to get an offer from them."
Lemieux visited Oregon and Washington last weekend and enjoyed both places. He will visit Washington State this coming weekend. As for USC, Lemieux said he's in regular contact on the phone or via social media. '

"This morning I called coach Elliott and I talked to Steve Spurrier and Steve Spurrier Jr. and they are all real excited about me getting out there," he said. "Gamecocks and Oregon are definitely my top right now. I definitely want to get down to visit Boise State, Arizona State and Cal. They are good teams and I feel like they would be up there too."
Utah offered Lemieux this week and he also has offers from East Carolina and Idaho.
