DB Kendall Randolph of Tallahassee has Louisville out front with Miami and USC rounding out his top three. He plans to make a decision in the next month.
"I want to commit in early September," said Randolph. "If I were to commit today, it would be Louisville." Early playing time could be a factor in his decision. "I just feel good about the coaches and the relationships I've built (with Louisville)," he said. "I think it's a place that I can go and make an early impact."
The Gamecocks are still high on his list but there may be some factors steering Randolph in a different direction.
"I think they're only taking two cornerbacks in this class and they've already got one committed," said Randolph. "And I think they're heavy on another DB so that's why they're probably not my leader right now."
USC was his first offer and has continued to recruit Randolph. He cited that as the reason the Gamecocks remain in his top three.
