South Carolina offensive lineman commitment Brandon Shell of Goose Creek will take an official visit to Alabama this weekend with his mother.
Mrs. Shell, who is still in San Antonio trying to get a flight home after watching her son in the U.S. Army All American Game, said this will be a serious visit for them as they want to take a closer look at Alabama.
"Just after talking to some of the fellows at the Shrine Bowl he wanted to take another look," Mrs. Shell said. "I'm thinking (his USC commitment) is still firm, but he wants to go and take a look at Alabama."
Shell is scheduled to make his official visit to USC on Jan. 21. He committed to the Gamecocks on Nov. 1.
