USC is one of the early offers for TE Gerald Christian (6-3 225) of Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Christian also has offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Tennessee, Rutgers, South Florida and Miami. Clemson has shown interest but has not offered.
Christian said USC recruiter Jeep Hunter has been showing strong interest. "He's been showing me a lot of love," Christian said. "I'm getting a lot of handwritten mail."
Christian has not been to any junior days and has no trips planned. He does not claim a favorite but he did group up a Florida State fan. He will graduate in December.
Last season Christian had 25 catches for 578 yards and 8 touchdowns. He also plays linebacker.
