USC has some work to do to win over WR Lance Ray (6-3 190) of Havana, FL.
The Gamecocks have been a player with Ray for several months, but it's Florida that has moved to the top of his list, even though the Gators have yet to offer.
"I believe once they see me in action, they will offer," said Ray who will attend a Florida camp this month. "I probably won't commit, but they would be my number one school. It's a great school and it's only two hours from home."
Ray said LSU is his current #2 team. The Tigers have not yet offered, either. USC has offered and remains in touch.

"I talk regulary with coach Beamer," Ray said. He's invited me to a camp there but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it."
Beamer visited Ray's school last month. Ray said he also will go to camps at Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Duke and South Florida.
