USC defensive end commitment Taylor Stallworth made an unofficial visit to Auburn last Saturday and had a great time, but he said that visit did not affect his pledge to the Gamecocks.

"I'm still strongly committed to South Carolina," Stallworth said. "I'm sticking with my choice." Stallworth talked with recruiter Kirk Botkin last week and says he told him everything was still good regarding his commitment. On a scale of 10, Stallworth called his USC commitment a "9".

However, Stallworth does plan to take other official visits to Auburn, Mississippi State and Florida State. He will take his USC official visit in January and he will try to get to USC for the Clemson game. Stallworth said Auburn has not offered and he's not picked up any new offers recently.

As for the the incredible finish to the Georgia-Auburn game, Stallworth said it was quite a scene inside the stadium. "It was super loud," he said. "My brother was at work at the time about a mile away and he heard it. A bunch of stuff got dropped (popcorn, drinks) on me."

This season Stallworth had 60 tackles and 6 sacks. He will play in the Alabama-Mississippi All Star Game and the Offense-Defense All Star Game.
