USC and Hand working on a visit

April 1, 2013 

USC has been on the short list with DE Da'Shawn Hand of Woodbridge, VA for several weeks and is now working on getting him in for a visit this spring according to Woodbridge assistant coach John Harris.

"The head coach (Dr Karibe Dede) is trying to make the USC visit happen," Harris said. "He has been in touch with coach (Deke) Adams." Adams had recruited Hand for North Carolina and is assisting in recruiting Hand for the Gamecocks.

Hand has visited Virginia Tech, Michigan, Alabama and North Carolina. He has not yet visited USC and Florida, the other two schools in his top five with Virginia Tech, Michigan and Alabama. He's still talking with UNC but the Tar Heels remain outside the top five.

Harris said Hand hasn't given an indication of when he wants to make his decision. "He doesn't want to drag it out too long," Harris said. "He'll wait until he's 100% sure."

Hand had a dominating junior season with 100 tackles including 40 for loss and 16 sacks.
