WR Tyshun Samuel of Chapman had Vanderbilt and North Carolina as his leaders with a slight lead in favor of the Commodores. He just returned from a camp at Chapel Hill and the Tar Heels may have pulled even.
"My two favorites are Vandy and UNC," he said. "I had a lot of fun at the camp up there. It was a lot of one-on-one drills and stuff like that."
With offers from Vanderbilt, North Carolina, NC State, Maryland, Charlotte, Old Dominion, Appalachian State and East Carolina, he is also receiving interest from USC. Samuel will be in Columbia Saturday for a 7-on-7 tournament. "While we're there, we're going to tour the campus," he said. 'I've heard some from USC and they told me they want to see how I play and they might offer." He says he could be interested in the Gamecocks and likes the style of offense USC runs.
Samuel may visit Old Dominion this summer but says he has very few plans and could wait until football to take all five of his official visits. He plans to commit on Signing Day.
