LB Daniel Fennell of Loganville, GA made an unofficial visit to USC for the South Alabama game and will return January 23rd for an official visit. Fennell will also take official visits to Michigan State, Missouri, Duke and Georgia Tech. USC and Tech are the only schools he's visited this season.
"It was a real good visit," Fennell said of his Saturday trip to Columbia. "I talked to a whole bunch of coaches. The facilities were real nice. I talked to coach Spurrier, coach Ward, coach Botkin and coach Mangus. They said they really wanted me and wanted to get me back for an official."
Fennell focused, of course, on the Gamecocks' linebacker play which has stepped up in recent weeks.
"I thought I would fit in real good," he said. "They said I would start out at Will (linebacker) and eventually become a Mike."
Never miss a local story.
Fennell said he will take all of his official visits before making his decision and there isn't a favorite at this point.
"I haven't been to enough places," Fennell said.
