USC, Ole Miss battle for WR Scruggs

WR Lamar Scruggs (6-4 212) of Jacksonville, FL is down to a final two of USC and Ole Miss, his coach said Monday afternoon.

"He wants to play in the SEC," Joe Reynolds said. "Ole Miss is sort of a dark horse but he likes their coaching staff. I think it's been South Carolina all along but I don't know. One of his best friends is committed to Ole Miss."

USC head coach Steve Spurrier and receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr. are to make their in-home visit with Scruggs Tuesday.

Scruggs visited Illinois over the weekend and Illini head coach Ron Zook plans to come in Wednesday.
