OL Ryan Norton (6-4 274) of Mauldin has offers from Clemson, Georgia Tech and East Carolina. He's also getting interest from USC, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, UCLA, NC State and Vanderbilt.
Early in the process, Norton is calling Clemson and Georgia Tech his favorites. "I visited there (Clemson) a few times and like the campus," Norton said. "Georgia Tech is right up there with Clemson. They're probably equal right now. Any school that wants to recruit me, I'm wide open. I grew up a USC fan, but things change."
Norton said he's not had much contact with new Gamecock line coach Shawn Elliott. He will go to Georgia Tech this weekend for a junior day, and he will go to one at Clemson February 20th. He plans to make a decision before his senior season.
Norton plays center but has also played tackle.
