Roundtree feeling strong on USC at this point

May 6, 2014 

DB Rashad Roundtree of Evans, GA has offers from all over the country and he plans to take some visits this summer before narrowing his list to five prior to the season. Roundtree said that Clemson and USC are a strong possibility for making that list.

He has yet to visit Clemson but is familiar with the Gamecocks.

"(Steve) Spurrier's Camp was one of the first ones that I attended," Roundtree said. "I got a chance to tour the campus and see the facilities and they're all really nice. What stood out was the coaching staff. They have a really good staff and that's what I am looking for."

He plans a return visit to USC this summer and will visit Clemson for the first time.

"They're a school I've been watching closely," he said. "I really just need to get up there and see everything for myself."

Other possible destinations this summer for Roundtree include Ohio State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn and Alabama. "Ohio State is probably the only long distance trip I'll take," he explained. "The rest will be around here."

As a junior, Roundtree totaled 97 tackles, four interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

He does not have a favorite.
