Florida defensive lineman likes USC

March 21, 2013 

DL Travonte Valentine (6-4 283) of Palm Beach, FL has offers from Clemson, USC, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Auburn, Miami, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Louisville, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Southern Cal, Tennessee, UCLA, West Virginia, Michigan and Michigan State among others. Formerly committed to Florida, Valentine no longer has interest in the Gators.

After visiting Clemson and USC, he returned home impressed with the two programs. "I liked South Carolina and Clemson when I visited," said Valentine. "They both treated me so nicely. I liked the campuses and the home town feel in their cities. Clemson has beautiful new facilities and it's a really nice town." Valentine wants to visit each school again in the future.

The only other visits he has made thus far are to Florida, Florida State and Miami. As for other schools he would like to visit he said, "I want to go to FSU, Arizona and LSU."

Valentine does not have any favorites and plans to narrow his list to five in November. He will likely be a signing day decision.
