6-10 power forward Schuyler Rimmer, a Florida native who is transferring from Stanford, made an official visit to USC the end of last week and has the Gamecocks on his short list as he works on a decision according to his former AAU coach in Orlando Willie Anderson, a former LSU player. Rimmer has also taken an official visit to Boston University during this second recruiting stint.
"He won't make his decision after the holidays," Anderson said. "He said he had a good visit (to USC). There was nothing in particular. The balance of academics and the chance to play in the SEC is more than a kid can ask for."
Rimmer was at USC Thursday thru Saturday so he was able to take in the USC-Clemson game Friday night. Anderson said Rimmer does not have any other visits scheduled at this point.
Rimmer originally committed to Florida in 2012 but later signed with Stanford. He was with the Cardinal for the 2013-14 season playing in 14 games and played in two games this season before deciding to leave. "For what he was trying to do it just wasn't a good fit,"Anderson said. "They (players) want to play wherever they go and with numerous guys at his position he just felt like he wasn't going to get a legitimate shot at getting some time to play. Not that he didn't want to compete, he wanted to play and didn't want to be involved in the numbers game."
As a high school senior, Rimmer averaged 15 points, 13.5 rebounds and 4.5 blocks per game. He scored over 1500 points and had over 1100 rebounds in his high school career.
