Kornblut said Nebraska kind of "lucked into" an in-home last night, happened to be there maybe, and that Steve Jr. headed to Jax right away to pay a visit after McClain's coach texted him. He's definitely done with FSU according to the article.

FSU wanted him to take a grayshirt which is why they have parted ways.

The TBS article made it sound like he was leaving FSU because Pruitt was leaving. If he will hold off announcing until after NSD, I think we have a good shot. I hope this is not any indication of either Sawyer and/or Wideman not qualifying. They have 7 DL commitments now not including McClain. About half of them are shown as DT including Wideman.

Probably more about Caldwell not winning the appeal.

USC making late run for defensive end
By Phil Kornblut
Picture
Blake McClain
Click for larger image
DE Blake McClain (6-4 280) of Jacksonville decommitted from Florida State yesterday and his coach quickly got the word out to several of his college coaching contacts that McClain was back on the market. One of those was USC's Steve Spurrier Jr. "I texted Junior and he texted me right back and said he's coming right down," Geiss said. Spurrier Jr. is expected to be at the school around 2:30 Thursday afternoon and then will go to a home visit with the family at 7:00 PM. Nebraska, however, got the jump on everyone. "They were in yesterday to talk to (commitment) Chris Jones and they just lucked into him," Geiss said. "They had an in home visit last night." Geiss said right now McClain has an official visit set with Nebraska for this weekend but that could change after tonight's visit with USC. "He may say the heck with Nebraska." McClain had been committed to the Seminoles but things started to change for him after defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt left for Georgia. "They started messing with him talking about playing the offensive line and grayshirting," Geiss said. "It was not a good fit after Pruitt left. He told Florida State he was moving on." Last season McClain had 15 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and he caused 5 fumbles. "The kid's an All American," his coach said. "He's very athletic and can play inside or outside."

Sounds like we have a good chance here. If FSU took his commitment I'm confident he could be a good player at USC

I believe his primary position is DL which FSU has him shown at that position. But he also plays OL....so since we seem very solid at DL already, I have to assume he will be a OL for us. But he is going to prep school somewhere first....Fork Union I hope.

At this point McClain says it's between Nebraska and us....he's taking an OV there this weekend.....hope it 's 20 below zero this weekend there. But if he is not willing to push his decision back from NSD and take an OV here, I can't see him picking us over Nebraska since he's never been to Columbia.

Looks like he is waiting until after NSD to announce.

SportsTalk@sportstalksc6m
DE Blake McClain said tonight he will not sign on NSD. He will take OV to USC a week or two after NSD before deciding. Going to NEB Friday
