DL Dexter Wideman of Saluda originally named USC his "top school", paused, and corrected himself. "Well, I would say they're in my top three," said Wideman. "I don't really have a favorite." He named the Gamecocks along side Florida and Florida State as those schools.

Wideman will attend a camp at FSU this week marking his first visit this summer.

His relationship with Brad Lawing has the Gators in the mix. "Me and coach Lawing have a real good relationship so I'm just looking forward to getting down there and seeing what it looks like," said Wideman.

The Gamecocks have remained in contact with Wideman and he expects to attend some games at Williams-Brice this season. Outside of his top three, Wideman says he continues to receive a lot of interest from Ole Miss and Alabama.

"I'm pretty much focusing on Florida State, Florida and South Carolina but I want to take all of my official visits," he said.
