Recruiting Update for USC

Kearney Sets USC Trip

DB Taveres Kearney (6-0 210) of Tucker, GA met at his school Wednesday with USC recruiter Ron Cooper and set an official visit for January 7th. Kearney's teammate, RB Brandyn Young, had previously set a visit for that date with USC. Kearney is also planning to set a visit with Ohio State. Clemson also has been involved along with Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Mississippi State and Oklahoma State. Kearney was named AP All State as an outside linebacker. This season he had 14 sacks, 12 tackles for loss, 51 quarterback hurries and 83 total tackles.

Green Set With Three

DE Hivera Green (6-5 268) of Conway has been one of the outstanding figures on the South Carolina Shrine Bowl team this week. Green said Wednesday he is set with three official visits for January...USC January 7th, Clemson on the 14th and Virginia Tech on the 21st. He said he does not plan to set any other trips, and he said he does not have a current favorite.

No Decision From Timmons

DB Knowledge Timmons (5-11 175) of York, PA said Wednesday night he has not made a decision after completing four official visits. Timmons made back to back trips to USC and NC State Saturday-Tuesday. He has also visited Boston College and Maryland. Timmons said all four schools are still in the running and he's not sure when he'll make a decision.

Barber Re-opens Recruiting

DB C.J Barber (6-2 215) of Rock Hill, SC will enroll at Pearl River JC on Jan 8th. Barber signed with USC in February but did not qualify. He was going to be placed in junior college by USC, but decided to stay home and try to qualify at a local community college. Barber has had no contact with USC since the coaching changes. He developed a close relationship with former Gamecock assistant coach and current East Carolina head coach Skip Holtz. Since he has not heard from the Gamecocks, Barber now says his recruiting is wide open. He will play only one year at Pearl River and will be eiligible for the 2006 recruiting year.

Great article. Thanks. I don't think Spurrier is worried about recuiting a big name QB. He has been known to custom build one from scratch.

I wouldn't say I was completely wrong. I said that Strong would not be retained as DC. He was retained as Co-DC along with that other dude that I heard about.

This Williams kid is eyeballing Oklahoma hard and Stoops is wooing him.

LB Keon Cooper (6-3 235) of Memphis had been favoring Missouri and was scheduled to visit there this weekend. But he didn't make the trip, and he now considers USC his favorite. "We already got two of our own (from Melrose High) down there and they are doing real good," Cooper said. "Plus, they have a new head coach andn it seems like he's going the right way. And they want me to play outside linebacker and I'm a defensive man. I'm 75% sure I'll commit to USC." Cooper is scheduled to visit USC January 14th but he might make his commitment in early January when recruiter Ron Cooper makes his next visit. He is also scheduled to visit Southern Miss January 21st.

Timmons Decision Is Coming

DB Knowledge Timmons (5-11 175) of York, PA made his official visit to Minnesota over the weekend. That was his final visit and he plans to make a decision by Wednesday. Timmons also has visited USC, Boston College, Maryland and NC State. He says all the schools are even and he's not trimmed his list. He had calls Sunday from NC State, Maryland and Penn State.

USC Remains Interested In Brown

USC remains involved with QB Levi Brown (6-4 212) of Mount Juliet, TN though the Gamecocks have not offered him a football scholarship. Brown is a 4.3 student with a 29 on the ACT. He has graduated from high school and can enroll in college in January. USC is looking at an academic scholarship package for Brown which would be converted to an athletic scholarship once he plays in his first game. Brown made an official visit to Richmond over the weekend and is being hotly pursued by the Spiders. Ole Miss and Kentucky also remain interested and plan to talk to him this week. He is also drawing interest from UT Chattanooga. Brown played in just six games this season due to a deep bone bruise in his knee. He passed for 1100 yards with 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.
