OL David Harding (6-5 285) of Orlando will arrive in Columbia Thursday afternoon for an unofficial visit with USC, and the Gamecocks have a shot at coming away with a commitment according to his coach. "From what he was telling me today, I'd say South Carolina is his favorite," Phil Ziglar said. "He likes coach Hunt (OL coach), and he wants to get everything done before the season. He visited Florida State last weekend but said that wasn't for him. He's also visited Duke."
Harding has relatives who live near Columbia, and Ziglar has been a friend of Hunt's for years.
Harding also has offers from Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, South Florida, Central Florida, Syracuse and Stanford. Ziglar said Harding is an honor student with a 4.4 GPA. And he's a good offensive guard, too.
"He's very quick and has long arms," the coach said. "He's a great pass protector and a great pulling guard."
