USC recently landed a commitment from offensive lineman Cody Gibson of Tallahassee, and the Gamecocks are hoping his teammate, ATH Ryan White (6-0 185), will decide to join him.
White has USC and Georgia Tech at the top of his list right now. "Cody going there is a positive because I would know somebody," White said. "They are in the SEC and they have great facilities, great academics, and I heard the coaches are real nice. I don't have a favorite. Both offer something different."
One big difference is how the schools view White as a player. USC likes him as an athlete who could play defensive back or receiver. Georgia Tech is recruiting him as an option quarterback.
White said he's in regular contact with USC recruiter Jay Graham and is going to try to visit USC later this month. He also has offers from Illinois, Arkansas, Southern Miss, East Carolina, Indiana and South Alabama. He's also getting interest from Michigan State and Ole Miss.
Last season White passed for 1200 yards and 14 touchdowns and rushed for 700 yards and 6 scores.
