LB Antwon Higgs (6-2 250) of Pompano Beach, FL has had USC at the top of his list for months, and the Gamecocks are still there. Higgs has taken an official visit to Purdue. He will visit USC November 8th and NC State November 29th. Despite his lean to the Gamecocks, Higgs does not expect to commit while on his official visit. "I don't think I will cut the other schools out like that without a visit," Higgs said. "I want to give the other schools a chance also."
Higgs said he's looking at Louisville, West Virginia and Vanderbilt for his other visits. Higgs said the Gamecocks have a small advantage over the others because they like to play large linebackers, and because they will take a linebacker and play him at defensive end. Higgs plans to graduate from high school in January and enroll in college shortly after that.
