WR Alshon Jeffery of Calhoun County had his in home visit with USC head coach Steve Spurrier Wednesday and agreed to make his official visit which is scheduled for January 31st. Joining Spurrier on the visit from USC were Steve Spurrier Jr., Shane Beamer, Jay Graham and Eric Wolford. The Gamecock coaches arrived in St. Matthews in time for basketball practice and watched Jeffery before going to his home.
"It will come down to the visits," said a source familiar with Jeffery's thinking. "Southern Cal still leads but the question is does he want to go that far."
Jeffery will be visited Thursday morning by Southern Cal head coach Pete Carroll and four of his assistants. Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin and assistant David Reaves were to visit as well on Thursday but Jeffery has to attend the funeral of a cousin, so that visit has been rescheduled for next week. Jeffery will take his official visits this weekend to Tennessee.
While at the high school, the USC coaches and Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney watched junior OL Eric Mack during basketball practice. New USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford plans to recruit Mack personally along with his Gamecock terretorial recruiter.
