WR Blake Bone of Woodruff has a top four of USC, Louisville, Kentucky and Ole Miss and said Tuesday night the Gamecocks are slightly ahead of the pack.
"I'm actually liking Carolina at the moment," Bone said. "Not my favorite but I'm maybe leaning towards them a little bit. It's the home state school. They got a good program running right now and the coaching staff is pretty great. And they are recruiting my tail off."
Bone said he also likes Louisville and the Cardinals are right behind USC. He visited USC and Kentucky this summer and he's not sure if he'll make USC's camp later this month.
Bone said he hears a lot from USC getting daily mail though he hasn't talked recently with recruiter Sean Elliott. He'd like to make his decision in August around the start of his season.
