Speedy WR Nyheim Hines of Garner, NC is sitting on 23 offers this summer and will cut down his list in late July. USC and Clemson are among those offers and remain in touch.
"I've been emailing with (Clemson's) coach Caldwell," Hines said. "And I talked to (USC's) coach Robinson and coach Spurrier. I'm still strongly interested and both want me to visit."
Hines said he will visit both school in the next six weeks. He has been to Ohio State and West Virginia. Right now he feels the strongest interest is coming from Clemson, USC, Ohio State, NC State, Duke, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. He has no favorites.
Hines said he also had a recent conversation with Ohio State coach Urban Meyer. "If God made an offense for you, this is the offense," Hines recalled Meyer telling him.

Hines can play receiver and running back. Clemson and USC are recruiting as a receiver and that's fine by him. "I want to be like a Percy Harvin," he said.
Hines said he could have a decision before he season or it might not be until September or October.
