DL Peyton Newell of Hawatha, KS has had USC as one of his favorites for months and next week he's expecting Gamecock recruiter GA Mangus to visit him at his school. Newell is up to 34 offers with Syracuse and Southern Cal the most recent. He plans to narrow his list at the beginning of Summer.
"South Carolina will definitely be on that list," Newell said. "They are very good at the recruiting process. Me and coach Mangus have developed a good relationship." He added that Southern Cal, Georgia, Nebraska and Kansas also are high up on his list.
Newell plans to take some more visits this summer but is not sure where. And he's moved his timetable for his decision up from late November to before his season. He does not have an individual leader.
