USC eying Louisiana lineman for center spot

May 5, 2014 

OL Jozie Milton (6-3 290) of Clinton, LA plays offensive tackle for his high school but has the skills to move inside a couple of spots. He has 21 offers including one from USC and the Gamecocks have made it clear they seem him as that man in the middle of the line.

"They said they are only taking one center and I'm the top guy for that position," Milton said. "I like it there a lot. I've heard a lot about the fanbase. And coach Spurrier, that's huge. And if I play center, I may be able to last longer in the game."

Milton said he talks every couple of weeks with Gamecock recruiter Deke Adams who was in to see him in late April Ole Miss, West Virginia and TCU also have been thru. Milton said he may visit USC this summer.

He does not have favorites and plans to have a decision around August. Some other offers are Mississippi State, Arkansas, Arizona State, Oklahoma State, South Florida and Southern Miss.
