LB Antwon Higgs (6-2 245) of Pompano Beach, FL has favored USC for an extended period and talked recently with recruiter Robert Gillespie. "He's still maintaining strong interest," Higgs said. The question is, will USC make room for Higgs considering the number of linebackers alrady committed to them. Higgs has taken an official visit to Purdue and is scheduled to visit USC November 8th. He's also getting strong interest from Kansas State, Florida, Louisville, NC State and Kentucky. Higg said he's averaging around 11 tackles per game this season.
