Gamecock basketball hosts three over the weekend

March 23, 2013 

USC's basketball recruiting weekend ended with no commitments from the three prospects who made official visits, 6-9 Demetrius Henry of Bradenton, FL, 6-6 Reggie Theus Jr. of Los Angeles and 6-3 Duane Notice of of Oakdale, CT.

"Had a great time at the University of South Carolina," Henry tweeted Saturday afternoon. His mother, who lives in Augusta, joined him on the visit. "Shout out to the University of South Carolina for the outstanding hospitality they showed me and my son," Andrea Dawson tweeted. Henry also plans to visit Miami and South Florida. Miami gained a commitment Saturday from a 6-8 junior college player and that could impact Henry's thinking when it comes to the Hurricanes.

Theus is the son of former UNLV and NBA star Reggie Theus. He also has an offer from Seton Hall and has drawn interest from Georgetown, Iowa and Stanford.

Notice is a native of Canada and tweeted after his visit he was heading home to Toronto. He attends a prep school in Connecticut. He also has offers from Duquesne, Seton Hall, St. Bonaventure, Oregon State and Auburn.

A source said Saturday afternoon the Gamecocks feel particularly good about their chances of landing Henry and Theus Jr. The Gamecocks will have to free up some room on their roster to accommodate any spring commitments. All 13 of their scholarships for next season currently are accounted for.
