Wide receiver Kelvin Harmon of Palmyra, N.J., Thursday night announced a decommitment from South Carolina.
Harmon said he talked with new Gamecocks head coach Will Muschamp earlier in the evening to give him the news.
“I’m rethinking things right now,” Harmon said, adding that he has not made a decision on another school and won’t make a final decision until signing day. “I’m going to keep South Carolina in mind and others.”
Harmon said the coaching change at USC shook things up for him, and he’s not getting the feeling he’s a high priority for the Gamecocks.
Never miss a local story.
“It was just how everything happened and nobody talked to me for a while,” he said. “Coach Muschamp was in town and didn’t stop by to see me. I’ve got to go somewhere where I am a priority.”
Muschamp and two assistants on Wednesday visited quarterback commitment Brandon McIlwain in Newtown, Pa., which is about 25 miles from Palmyra.
Harmon was just named all-state in New Jersey and led the state in receiving yards with more than 1,100. He’s the third decommitment for the Gamecocks since Muschamp was named head coach on Sunday.
USC now has 12 commits for the 2016 class, including one receiver (Tre Jackson of Baton Rouge, La.).
Overall, the Gamecocks have had seven decommitments in the class, with six of them coming since Steve Spurrier announced his resignation as head coach.
