2016 RB Shakur Chisolm of Barnwell will make his second trip to USC this season when the Gamecocks host South Alabama. Chisolm has USC among his favorites, along with Clemson and Auburn. Auburn has extended a verbal offer while Chisolm waits on the Tigers and Gamecocks to do the same.
Chisolm visited with USC assistant Everett Sands several times at the high school prior to the season and is looking forward to returning to Columbia for another game.
"I like their offense, it's sneaky," he said. "The thing I like about them the most is the support system. Their fans are so amazing. Even though they're not having a good season, I know they'll be good again. They've got a really good recruiting class coming in."
Chisolm also likes Clemson. He has not visited Death Valley this season but was overwhelmed by his trip to Clemson last year.
Never miss a local story.
"I went to the Florida State game and, even though they got blown out, the first half was incredible," Chisolm said. "That's the loudest stadium I've ever been to." He hopes to get back to Clemson for the USC game.
Clemson assistant Marion Hobby maintains contact with Chisolm and has given him positive reviews
"Coach Hobby tells me he likes my film and how I run," he said. "He told me I'm a physical runner and he likes that. I like their offense a lot and I love Deshaun Watson."
Chisolm may visit Auburn after the season and has been invited to attend a basketball game on The Plains.
In his junior campaign, Chisolm rushed for over 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns. He had 250 yards receiving and another three scores.
