Wide receiver Kiel Pollard of Moultrie, Ga., is eying a final college decision this weekend.
He is deciding between South Carolina and Arkansas and has set Sunday for his decision day. Pollard committed to Arkansas in September.
His Arkansas recruiter was in on Monday, and he’s expecting Kurt Roper and Bryan McClendon from USC to visit on Wednesday. Both head coaches have had their in-home visits.
“I really don’t know, I’ll let y’all know Sunday,” said Pollard, who plans to put his decision on Twitter at an unspecified time. “I don’t know what will make the difference. I enjoyed the visits equally. Arkansas is saying to come into a program that runs a similar offense to what we run and prepare for the league (NFL). South Carolina is saying come in and start and play early.”
Pollard was the 6A Offensive Player of the Year in Georgia last season. As a senior, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Pollard caught 76 passes for 1,163 yards and 18 touchdowns.
USC to see John Simpson
Fort Dorchester coach Steve LaPrad was not able to catch up with offensive lineman John Simpson on Monday because the coach was out of school.
He did say he’s expecting most of the USC staff to be down on Wednesday to watch Simpson’s wrestling match. He said he does not know Simpson’s definite visit plans for this weekend. He is scheduled to visit Alabama but USC is trying to get him to change and visit there. Simpson has visited LSU, Florida and Clemson.
Stallings still committed
Per his coach Monday night, USC remains an option for defensive end Cecil Stallings of Tucker, Ga., who has been a Gamecocks commitment since July.
Coach Bryan Lamar said he will know more Thursday. Stallings has visited Mississippi State and could visit USC this weekend if things work out. Ole Miss also has been involved.
