Florida defensive lineman Jaquaze Sorrells made another appearance at South Carolina on Saturday for the Georgia game. This one also an unofficial visit.

It’s the third visit with the Gamecocks for the former Florida commitment, and he’s scheduled for an official visit with them this coming weekend though he said Sunday night he’s not sure yet about that visit.

“It went well,” he said of this visit. “I was able to get my family up there this time.”

Sorrells had set Aug. 27 for a commitment announcement but passed on that date. Asked when he might make a commitment, he responded, “Whenever the time is right.”

LSU, Oregon, Alabama and Florida State have been the other top schools on his list. In his first two games, Sorrells has a sack, two hurries and a pair of tackles.
