USC special teams coach Shane Beamer is on the lookout for kicking help and has been investigating two prospects in Georgia, one for the 2010 class and one for 2011.
Devon Pike of Warner Robins, GA is the senior and is considered to be one of the best kicks in his state. Beamer is looking for a kicker who specializes in kickoffs, and Pike could be that guy.
The junior is Matt Ehasz of Kingsland. His Camden County High team is still in the playoffs. He connected on a 55 yard field goal in warm ups prior to his last game. Beamer plans to visit the school while he's on the road, and Ehasz plans to set up a visit to USC later this month.
Georgia also is showing interest in Ehasz. He made an unofficial visit to Georgia for the Kentucky game. His team also practice in Athens last week and he was observed by the Bulldogs' kicking coach.
