USC does not have an offer on the table right now for a 2014 quarterback and may not take one, but Bo Baldwin of South Aiken did his best Saturday to convince Steve Spurrier and GA Mangus that he's worth an offer.
They must have been impressed to some degree because Baldwin was invited back for the Showcase Camp next month.
Baldwin was at USC Saturday competing in a seven on seven tournament and his coach said Baldwin had one of his best days ever.
"I think he impressed the people," Jeremy West said. "He had a talk with coach Mangus and they want him to come back for the Showcase and they'll make a decision (on an offer) by around the Showcase. He definitely helped his stock. He had a good day."

West said Mangus had several positive things to say about Baldwin after observing him in the seven on seven.
"How he was able to check down when stuff was covered," the coach said. "He had good velocity on the ball and put it in good spots. He was taking what the defense was giving."
West said he left the tournament optimistic about an offer for Baldwin who has missed most of the past two seasons with injuries.
"I feel optimistic about it, I think we all do," he said. "They were real impressed. Bo said they want him to come back for the Showcase and he feels that maybe that's when they are going to decide what they are going to do."
Baldwin has not yet been offered and has no other visits planned this summer at this point.
South Aiken 2015 DE Rasool Clemmons also was at USC Saturday. The Gamecocks have not offered. He has offers from Clemson, Florida State and Virginia. He visited Florida State earlier this month.
