He has room to grow. We may need him at RB with a need there

Quote:
USC remains in the top four for RB Traveon Samuel of Phenix City, AL. He has yet to reveal that list but said the Gamecocks are strong with him.
Ive maintained a really good relationship with coach (Grady) Brown and Im going to visit this summer, he said.
Samuel has visited Columbia twice before but has yet to attend a game. He could take an official visit to USC during the season.
Samuel would like to commit sometime in December and is planning to graduate early.
USC has a good program and good coaches, he said. I like the way they said they would use me.
Florida State and California are two others he plans to visit over the summer. Ive got a good relationship with one of the coaches at Cal, Samuel said. He just wants to get me on campus to see what is it like. I hear its beautiful out there so I want to check it out.
His offers include USC, Clemson, Alabama, Auburn, Cal, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Louisville and Duke. He does not have any favorites.

Quote:
USC hosts its Showcase Camp Saturday and one of the uncommitted targets planning to attend is WR Traveon Samuel of Phenix City, AL. The speedy Samuel plays running back in high school but the Gamecocks like him as a slot receiver along the lines of Ace Sanders.
Samuel has a top three of USC, Auburn and Florida State in no order from a list of 40 offers. He talked Sunday with his Gamecock recruiter Grady Brown.
“We were just talking and he said he wanted me to come in again, so I’ll be up there again Friday,” said Samuel who will be there to observe the camp, not work out. He did camp at USC last summer.
Samuel said he likes the Gamecock program and coaches and could see himself in their offense.
“It’s my style of offense,” he said. “They said I can come in and make an immediate impact. They spread the ball around getting the ball in peoples hands.”
Right now Samuel doesn’t plan to make a commitment until December, but he did say a commitment this weekend is possible. He will be joined on the trip by a few teammates including highly touted 2016 DB John Broussard.

C2, do you think Samuel is a take with the tight numbers? I love his highlight reel and think he could be a good one. He has really good initial burst and despite his smaller stature he's pretty tough to bring down.

So, our coaches have invited him to the Showcase even though they have decided that they aren't gonna' take him?
So, he's gonna' drive to Columbia from Alabama even though our coaches have never told him they would take him?

Mind you, I'm not saying that he is a definite take. Only the coaches know that. What I AM saying is that I don't think any of us can know whether a kid is a "take" or not.

Could it be that him coming to the showcase will be an opportunity for him to showcase his talent and sell himself to the coaches? Maybe they needed to do an eye-ball eval of him one more time? Who knows....

He seems to have the kind of slashing, fearless running style that Ace Sanders had. At his height and weight, he looks thick enough to take a hit or throw a block. Players without the desired size are usually a more risky bet, but sometimes play with extra grit.

Default Re: 2015 - Traveon Samuel

I'm watching the Texas A&M/Auburn game from last year, and Trey Williams had a few big runs in this game. I bring this up because he and Samuel are about the same size and seem like very similar players, both in size and skill set. Obviously neither one are primary or every down backs, but it seems like they can be used in the same way at times.

Sounds like we are still in play here.

Quote:
WR Traveon Samuel of Phenix City, AL continues to show strong interest in USC, and vice versa, and because he will graduate in December and enroll in January, he said USC would have room for him if he decides to go there.

"Coach Brown said they have another guy coming in, a slot receiver, but if I can come in December, they will take me," Samuel said. 'I'm almost done. I have only two classes."
