Test score holding things up for Croney

ATH Ra'Shaun Croney of Pahokee, FL is being recruited by USC as a safety and once he gets a qualifying test score he'd like to commit to the Gamecocks. He's expecting to get a score back by the end of December.

"I'm confident I will get it," Croney said of qualifying. "I would like to go to South Carolina. It's not far from home and they have a good program."

USC has offered Croney along with Arkansas, Mississippi State, Florida Atlantic, Florida International and Bowling Green. Croney said he talked with his USC recruiter GA Mangus last week and is expecting him to visit next week. He also talked with Arkansas last week.

Croney said the schools are waiting to see that score before moving forward with him.
