DB Wesley Green of Lithonia, GA did not make it in to USC as planned for the Florida game and right now has no plans for coming in for the Clemson game, but he has set his official visit with the Gamecocks for December according to his coach. But Cortez Allen couldn't recall the exact date.

"Right now he's concentrating on getting his official visits set up," Allen said. "He does have a date set with the coach at South Carolina. He's just taking a break from everything as far as traveling on the weekend and will spend some time with his family and decompress from the season and look ahead to everything that's coming up."

The USC visit will be the first of the four Green plans to take. The others will be Tennessee, Ole Miss and Georgia. There have been reports of Green trending more towards Georgia now after having been committed to USC, but Allen says he's given him no such indication.

"Not that we've discussed," he said. "That's what he has on the table. He's looking at those four and those are the ones he's going to make a decision off of. After he takes his trips he'll sit down and map out everything from there. As far as a favorite out of the top four, I don't know that he has one."

Allen said as Green goes on the visits, he'll be checking on certain things. "How does he fit with the guys he meets, the atmosphere of the students on the campus, the surroundings of the city and town each school is in and can he see himself being there for the next four or five years. Just finding out what's the best fit for him."

Allen added that his junior DE Arden Key remains open after once being committed to USC. "He's working on school, getting ready for basketball and dealing with the end of the season type things."

Allen said Green and Key remain very interested in USC despite backing off their pledges which he said was done only because the pair felt it was best to go thru the recruiting process a little bit more.
