USC still a factor with Christian

DB Ahmad Christian (5-10 195) of Jacksonville, FL spoke with Steve Spurrier, Jr. yesterday and says he is planning an official visit to USC. Christian is also planning to visit Miami, Florida, and Louisville.

Coaches from Southern Miss visited him at his high school today and he is expecting coaches from Florida to visit him next week. His team is still playing in the playoffs so Christian will wait until after the season to take his visits.

He says USC did not schedule an in-home visit with him. "He (Spurrier, Jr.) just wanted to talk to me about taking an official (visit) there,"said Christian. He does not have a favorite.
