DB Kendall Randolph of Tallahassee is close to making his first trip to USC. He will be on-campus June 21st to take a better look at a school he ranks in his top five.
"I talk to coach (Kurt) Botkin quite a bit so I am familiar with their schemes," said Randolph. "This trip is really to see the school at its atmosphere. I will check out the facilities but I'm more focused on the academics and seeing the campus and the city to see if it's somewhere that I could live the next four years."
Randolph has a top five of USC, Georgia, Miami, Florida State and Alabama in no order. "The only two schools in my top five that I have not visited are South Carolina and Miami," he said. "I've been to Georgia a couple of times because we just played a 7-on-7 tournament there. It's a really nice school and I like the area."
Randolph wants to return to Columbia for a football game in the fall but is unsure of an official visit. "I think I'll see all of the schools I'm looking at this summer so I don't really know if I have to take all five of my official visits," said Randolph.
He plans to announce on National Signing Day.
