It was thought that the biggest threat to USC for committed WR Sean Tapley (6-0 180) of Jacksonville, FL was Miami. That's no longer the case.
"I'm finished with Miami," Tapley said Sunday. "I dropped them about a week ago."
But that doesn't mean the Gamecocks still don't have competition.
"North Carolina is pretty strong right now," Tapley said. "They tell me they need me, they want me. But, I feel real good about my commitment to South Carolina. It's still strong."
North Carolina head coach Butch Davis will visit Tapley this week. And USC recruiter Steve Spurrier Jr., who visited last week, will be back this week as well. Tapley has official visits set with North Carolina for December 18th and USC for January 15th.
This season he caught 33 passes for 609 yards and 11 touchdowns.
