OL Zack Bailey of Summerville has been to Clemson twice this season for games. This month he plans to make two trips to USC, for the Florida and Clemson games. He's not picked up any new offers so he's sitting on ones from USC, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, North Carolina and The Citadel.

Bailey said he's been focused on his books and his team and hasn't spent a lot of time on his recruiting, but he's been in touch with the Gamecocks and Tigers. "I talk to USC and Clemson everyday thru social media," Bailey said. "There's no pressure, none of that kind of stuff. They just tell me to do what's best for me. They were wondering how my season is going and they're looking forward to seeing my film."

Bailey said he will also visit Oregon either late in the season or in December. Right now he has no favorites. "It's going to come down to what the school brings as far as education and if it has my field of study," Bailey said. He wants to major in criminal justice, engineering or architecture and construction.

He did say USC and Clemson working the hardest for him, and there's no favorite between the two. "Clemson is a great place to be and I enjoyed being up there," he said. "And USC is a great place to be, also. Coaches there are awesome people as far as offensive line coaches go." Bailey added that in particular USC offensive line coach Shawn Elliott reminds him of his coach Buddy King who once coached at Clemson and at USC.

He will not make a decision until sometime during his senior season.
