Three prospects from Allendale-Fairfax plan to attend USC's junior day Saturday according to coach Wayne Farmer. Leading the trio is DB Bashaud Breeland (6-2 200) who has offers from USC, Clemson and Wake Forest. He's also getting interest from Maryland, Florida and Georgia Tech.
Breeland plays quarterback and free safety. Most schools are recruiting him for safety though Georgia Tech likes him as a quarterback. He can also play outside linebacker. "He loves football," Farmer said. "He's very physical and has an uncanny instinct for the game. He makes plays."
Last season Breland rushed for 1031 yards and 12 touchdowns, and had 156 tackles, 3 sacks, 3 interceptions and 14 passes broken up. And in track he won the state title in the 400 hurdles.
RB Jerrell Priester (5-10 185) is the cousin of former Clemson running back Raymond Priester. Last season he rushed for 1194 yards and 12 touchdowns averaging 12 yards per carry. He also plays cornerback and had 41 tackles and 2 interceptions.

Priester has not been offered but is hearing from Clemson, USC, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Florida and Middle Tennessee.
And RB Emmanuel Ochopukpo (6-0 190) missed half of last season with a quad strain so schools don't know much about him yet. Like his teammates, he's a speedster with a 4.4 clocking.
All three players plan to visit Clemson for their junior day in March.
