USC coaches make visit with Green

DB Wesley Green of Lithonia, GA visited USC unofficially Saturday for the Clemson game. Monday morning USC recruiters Lorenzo Ward and Grady Brown visited with Green at his school.

"They were the second ones in," Green's coach Cortez Allen said pointing out that NC State was first in line. "I think it went real well. Coach Ward and I sat down and had a good conversation. They're getting an official visit setup for mid-January for their big weekend." Green will also set official visits with Georgia, Ole Miss and Tennessee.

Allen said Green "loved the visit" to USC Saturday but he's not claiming a leader and probably will go to Signing Day or close to it before making his decision.

The Gamecocks coaches also got the chance to see junior DE Arden Key while at the school today but the rules prevented them from talking at length with him. Green and Key were once Gamecock commitments.
