Signing Day drama intensifies for South Carolina, Clemson
National Signing Day is Wednesday and the next two days won't be without drama for South Carolina and Clemson fans.
Four players on the Gamecocks' list are still undecided. Clemson is still working on three. Here's the breakdown:
Defensive back Wesley Green of Lithonia, Ga., will announce at 5 p.m. Wednesday on Fox Sports South. He is expected to choose either USC or Georgia. Green had planned to take an official visit to Georgia over the weekend but didn't make it.
"He's telling everybody the same thing, that it's going down to the wire," Green's coach Cortez Allen said last week.
Defensive back Chris Lammons of Plantation, Fla., will announce at 1 p.m. for either USC or Wisconsin. Lammons has publicly maintained a 50-50 split. Spurrier was in for his in-home visit last week.
Defensive lineman Dexter Wideman of Saluda made an official visit over the weekend to Florida State. Wideman has been committed to the Seminoles, but he confirmed to his coach Sunday he's giving USC equal consideration.
Wideman committed to Florida State last summer, but USC has continued to recruit him. Wideman has kept the door open for the Gamecocks.
Tight end Jerry Gibson of Theodore, Ala., made an official visit to USC over the weekend. He has been committed to Minnesota and said going into the visit it would take a lot to turn him from the Gophers. He had a good visit with the Gamecocks, which included seeing his sister, who attends Charlotte.
The biggest prize left for the Tigers is defensive end Andrew Williams of McDonough, Ga. He is thought to be down to Clemson and Auburn, but he did visit Georgia over the weekend. All three head coaches made visits with Williams last week. He will announce at 9:45 a.m.
Clemson also is hanging with defensive lineman Cory Thomas of McCalla, Ala. He has been committed to Tennessee and made an official visit with the Vols over the weekend. He also made visits to Clemson and Mississippi State, and the Tigers have certainly made a strong impression with him.
Thomas told Tigernet.com last week he favors Clemson.
"My final decision will be on signing day, but as of right now, I can safely say that Clemson is No. 1," he said.
And the Tigers are looking good with linebacker Richard Yeargin III of Fort Lauderdale. The former Notre Dame commit quickly moved Clemson to the top of his list after leaving the Irish fold.
"I think the decision is made," said his brother, Richard Yeargin Jr.
