Florida corner likes Gamecocks

DB Chris Lammons of Fort Lauderdale is looking hard at USC and has the Gamecocks in his final 15. He plans to visit this summer after building a solid relationship with recruiter Grady Brown who is also the Gamecocks' secondary coach.

"Me and coach Brown are real close," Lammons said. "We talk a lot, not only about football but about life." They last talked Sunday.

Lammons has never been to USC but know enough about the Gamecocks to like them. "They produce a lot of cornerbacks and put them in the NFL," he said. "There's a chance to play early because they play five defensive backs."

The others on his reduced list are Oregon, Florida, Miami, Arkansas, West Virginia, LSU, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, Central Florida, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Indiana and Kentucky. He doesn't plan to announce until Signing Day.

Last season Lammons played quarterback and had over 1500 total yards and scored 34 touchdowns. He will play more cornerback this season.
