USC is evaluating WR Dominique Ellis (5-10 168) of Homerville, GA and he's optimistic the Gamecocks will step up with an offer soon. "They said they'd offer when I come in for a half-day camp," Ellis said Monday night. He's not sure when he'll get to visit. Florida also is showing interest and Ellis said the Gators will offer if he gets in for a camp. He has an offer from Central Florida and also is drawing interest from Arkansas, Memphis, Georgia and Georgia Southern. Ellis, who has 4.4 speed, also plays free safety. Last season he caught 40 passes for 980 yards and 13 touchdowns.
