Junior OL Taylor Hearn of Williston-Elko returned to USC last Saturday for the Tennessee game.
"I saw the facilities and was on the field," Hearn said. "I watched the game and then talked to Coach Elliott and Coach Sands. They like me on film. They are real interested in me."
Hearn plans to go back to USC and Clemson for games. Those are his top two right now with no favorite, though he grew up a Gamecock fan.
Clemson has offered Hearn and he's waiting to hear from USC. "Coach Elliott said as soon as the season is over he'll let me know where I stand with them," Hearn said.
LSU, NC State, Mississippi State and North Carolina also are showing interest.
