Defensive lineman Cecil Stallings of Tucker, Ga., committed to the former South Carolina staff in July, but some doubt arose in his mind after Will Muschamp took over in December.
Stallings wasn’t sure if he would fit in with Muschamp’s defensive scheme and wasn’t totally sure if he was wanted by the new staff. But his coach, Bryan Lamar, said that though Stallings will take some other visits, his plans right now are to sign with the Gamecocks.
“He’s still solid,” Lamar said. “He’s going down to Mississippi State next weekend. His final visit will be to South Carolina. He’s still solid, but he’s just taking visits. I talked with them and they are still pretty solid with him. They still want him. He’s still dealing with the transitioning, but I think he’s still pretty solid with them right now.”
Lamar said he’s not sure if Stallings’ visit to USC will be the weekend of Jan. 22 or 29. He said there are no other schools Stallings is considering at this point.
