OL Josh Ball (6-7 305) of Fredericksburg, VA has 18 offers at this point including one from USC. Some of the other offers include West Virginia, Virginia, NC State, Maryland, Vanderbilt and Kentucky.
Ball has been to junior days at Duke, NC State, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and Virginia Tech, and he's been to Maryland and Virginia on unofficial visits. He will visit Penn State this weekend and another of his future trips will be to USC.
"I'm really interested in South Carolina," Ball said. "I definitely want to get down for a visit soon, maybe for a spring practice. The SEC is one of the best. I'm really excited about South Carolina. I'm doing my research and can't wait to meet Coach Spurrier."
Deke Adams is recruiting Ball for USC and is in regular contact. He wants to visit as many of the offering schools as he can to check them out, evaluate the coaches and look over the campus. He would like to make his decision before his season and does not have a favorite.
Ball is an offensive tackle but he also plays guard. Coaches tell him they love his size and how he finishes his blocks.
