USC continues to keep up the interest in DB Rashard Causey of Fort Lauderdale despite his long standing commitment to Florida Atlantic. Causey said Gamecock secondary coach Grady Brown was on hand for his state championship game in December.
"He said he was proud of me and he saw that I had matured in my game," Causey said. "He's just waiting on me to make that call. They've been recruiting me since I was a sophomore so I've build a good relationship with coach Brown and some of the South Carolina coaches and some of the players. My best friend Skai (Moore) goes there so I get all the scoop about what's going on and what it's like there."
Causey said he's aware the Gamecocks lost two of their defensive back commitments and now it's up to him to push the issue with the Gamecocks.
"Nothing has change for me for South Carolina," he said. "I've always loved them from the beginning because they were one of the first big schools to recruiting me. That's on my call to make the visit because they want me. That's my call to make on when I want to visit the school."
Causey said he hopes to set an official visit with USC after talking with his parents. He said he's also considering Tennessee and Georgia.
