OL Errin Joe (6-4 295) of Lakeland, FL made an unofficial visit to USC for the Alabama without an offer from the Gamecocks. The next time he visits, he'll have an offer in his pocket.
"They offered me last Saturday," Joe said. "Coach Elliott called and said he really wants me. I'm seriously considering South Carolina. I'm really going to give them consideration."
Joe is serious about them. The offer elevated USC on his list all the way to a tie for second with Georgia Tech behind Florida State. Miami, West Virginia and Missouri are the other schools he's considering.
Joe said he will take official visits to Florida State, Georgia Tech, and most likely USC. He's been to games at Florida State and USC and will go to Auburn this Saturday. He'll also go to Florida State for the Florida game.
Joe plays offensive tackle now but is being recruited to play guard.
