Longtime South Carolina defensive back commitment Mark Fields Jr. of Cornelius, NC, said Wednesday night he remains committed but he probably take at least two other official visits to Clemson and Texas.
He is set to visit USC on Jan. 23. The other visits have not yet been set.
"I would say I'm still committed to South Carolina, but with all the stuff going on about how long Steve Spurrier is going to be there and possibly having to deal with a coaching change while I'm there, I'm just taking all of that into consideration," Fields said. "But I'm still committed to the Gamecocks."
USC recruiter Grady Brown was in to meet with Fields on Sunday.
Never miss a local story.
"We talked about the same things we always talk about," Fields said. "The plan for me coming in and how I can contribute for the Gamecocks next year and stuff like that."
Fields added that he has talked with Brown about his concerns regarding Spurrier.
"He said really not to worry about it," Fields said, making clear rival recruiters have not broached the subject with him.
His Texas recruiter also has been in, and Fields is expecting Clemson recruiter Mike Reed to visit him as well.
Fields is good friends and a teammate with Clemson commitment Van Smith, who will be enrolling early, and he plans to hang out with him when he takes his official to Clemson.
Fields finished his season with 42 tackles, 2 interceptions and 15 pass break-ups.
