Quote:
USC recruiter Shawn Elliott was at Richmond County High School in North Carolina Wednesday to check on OL Tyrone Crowder and DE Devontae Covington. Coach Paul Hoggard said Clemson recruiter Dan Brooks is planning to see his players Thursday. Coaches from Tennessee, Wake Forest and East Carolina also have been by. Crowder has 16 offers after getting one from Nebraska. Some of the others are USC, Clemson, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Auburn and Miami. This spring he visited Clemson, USC, Florida, Alabama, NC State, Wake Forest and Duke. He has not narrowed his list. Covington holds offers from USC, Clemson, Tennessee, East Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest. He has visited USC, Wake Forest, NC State, Tennessee and East Carolina.

Looks like wrapping up the NCAA deal without postseason bans has gotten some kids off the fence for us. Good news.

This is very surprising because his interview after his visit a month or two ago wasn't very favorable for USC.

I love it when we take recruits away from clemtech ... getting in on Covington early must have helped.

JMO, but maybe other schools were in his ear about the possible "hammer" coming down from the NCAA. Maybe we stayed on him, and when we got the good news Friday things opened back up for him. Again, JMO.

Nonetheless, glad he's a Gamecock! Welcome to Columbia!

Alfy Hill falls under that category. Turner has had double digit offers for a while and is 4* by Rivals. Also he fits our defense perfectly for a Norwood role.

This class, like our recent classes, will fill out just fine. There's a lot of players left on the board, and in the end this will be another great recruiting class.

Default Re: Devante Covington Thread (2013 Commitment)

Reading around other boards, it looks like Covington is a guy that Coach Lawing has wanted for some time. I think Coach Lawing's track record speaks for itself.

Now, I'm interested to see how many more ends they take. It looks like Doobie Thomas will be apart of this class bc he will likely not qualify and we still have Jason Hatcher, Nazair Jones, Tashawn Bower, Tyquan Lewis, David Johnson (hybrid), and Devin Washington on the board. The staff is still after De'Asian Richardson too last I heard but I doubt they get him to visit. Not sure if they are pushing for Sean Spencer, Dajuan Drennon, and Davin Bellamy.

Oh and Frank Herron said he is visiting this Summer.

We should land D. Washington. This class is already shaping up to be a very, very good one, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

Default Re: Devante Covington Thread (2013 Commitment)

The truth is those "highly sought after/rated" guys usually in the end commit to those schools which are or are perceived to be powerhouse football schools. If a recruit has a top 3 of Florida, Alabama, and SC more times than not that does not bode well for us. Meanwhile teams like SC and Arkansas get the guys who those schools pass on and in the end its a smarter move by them b/c they have a better probability of more playing time where as at the other schools they may sit on the bench for 2 or 3 yrs.

BTW Covington's offer list is pretty dang good.
