Hoganville, Georgia running back Tank Bigsby remains a primary South Carolina target and the Gamecocks are high up on his list. His spring practice concluded Wednesday and USC recruiters were in to scout him this month.

“I feel good about them,” Bigsby said. “It was about two weeks ago when we last talked. It was the same thing basically, just talking to them and catching up.”

LSU, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisville and Oklahoma also were in this spring to scout Bigsby who is considered one of the top running back prospects in the country after rushing for 2200 yards and 22 touchdowns last season. He said USC, Georgia and Tennessee were recruiting him hard with Georgia, which offered him in the 9th grade, recruiting the hardest.

“I really don’t know yet,” Bigsby said when asked if a favorite had emerged. “I got a little bit of a leader. I don’t want to say nothing right now.”

As for what he’s looking for in a school, Bigsby replied, “Good academics and stuff like. The offensive line. I really don’t worry about the depth chart (at running back).”

Bigsby said he might take an unofficial visit to Tennessee this weekend. He has been to LSU officially and is scheduled for an official visit to USC on May 31. He also has taken multiple unofficial visit to USC and one to Georgia. He said Georgia might also get an official visit. He does not, at this point, have a decision date in mind.
