Slawson Hopeful Recruits Will Join Him

USC basketball commitments 6-8 RJ Slawson of Fort Dorchester and 5-9 Bruce Ellington of Berkeley made their official visits to USC over the weekend. While there, they mixed with the current players and two other major Gamecock targets, 6-9 Damontre Harris of Fayetteville, NC and 6-3 Brian Richardson of Wilson, NC who also were on official visits.

Slawson said he got a good feeling about USC's chances with both players. "It seemed like they liked it," Slawson said. 'I'm hoping to hear a phone call pretty soon hearing they have committed. They just felt like they enjoyed being up there and bonded with the team and me and Bruce."

Harris and Richardson have other visits scheduled. Harris is scheduled to go to Wake Forest, VCU, Maryland and Florida while Richardson has visits set with Alabama and UNC Wilmington.

As for his own visit, Slawson said it was great. "They made me fee like I was at home," he said. "I just hung out with the guys and played some pickup. Just hanging out with the fellas."

Slawson and Ellington will take no more official visits.
