USC commitment DE Quandeski Whitlow of Opelika, AL will take his official visit to Louisville this weekend, followed by trips to USC and Florida before signing off on a decision.
Whitlow has been committed to the Gamecocks since June, and he remains in touch with recruiter Kirk Botkin.
"I talked to coach Botkin last night," Whitlow said Monday night. "We never miss a day without talking. He's like another family member."
As for his commitment strength, Whitlow said, "It's still 100 percent solid. I'm still into them."
Never miss a local story.
However, he is going to take his official visits and see what Louisville and Florida have to offer.
"If I feel like something gets comfortable to me, I'll have to balance it all out," he said. "I won't know until I take my visits. Florida is coming after me hard. I've talked to the coaches and they said they need some 'Bama boys. I take the visits and get more into the schools and see if it's somewhere I can call home for the next three or four years."
Whitlow said he's expecting Botkin to visit Thursday and Steve Spurrier has an in-home scheduled for Jan. 22.
He will make the Louisville trip solo but will have his two brothers with him for the USC and Florida visits.
