USC recruiter Ellis Johnson doesn't have a lot of seniors to recruit in his terretory so he's spending a good deal of time working on juniors. One of those is Marlboro County LB Lateek Townsend (6-3 208). Towsend said he met with Johnson on Friday.
Townsend has offers from USC, Clemson, East Carolina, Illinois, NC State and Maryland. He's not claiming any favorites early in the recruiting process.
