DB Rashard Causey of Fort Lauderdale has an impressive offer list right now made up of USC, Notre Dame, Florida, Florida State, Miami, UCLA, Mississippi State, Rutgers, Central Florida, West Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and NC State. And he's expecting offers soon from Louisville and Wisconsin.
He has not formulated a top five but when he does, he knows one school that will be on it. "South Carolina will always be in my top five," Causey said. "I really like South Carolina. Their playing style is amazing and I love their defense. One of my closest friends Skai Moore plays for them and he's pushing me hard to go there."
Causey saw the Gamecocks in action when they played at Central Florida earlier in the season. "They are somewhat similar (on defense) to what we do," he said. "I feel like I could have a big impact as a freshman there. As soon as I step on the campus, I'm going to have an impact on that defense. That's how I feel about it."
Causey said he's in regular contact with Gamecock recruiter Grady Brown. He added that USC, Miami, Arkansas, Notre Dame and UCLA are recruiting him the hardest at this point.
He has also been to Miami for a game. He won't make it to USC for a game but plans to visit in the off season. A decision will come in his senior season, maybe on his birthday of September 20th.
