DB Rashard Causey of Fort Lauderdale has been committed to Florida Atlantic since April but that has not stopped bigger programs from continuing to recruit him.

That includes USC, where he will visit this weekend with his parents.

"My options are all the way open," Causey said. "I'll have a top five in a week or so. I'm still looking at South Carolina, Miami, Clemson, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and North Carolina."

Causey visited Miami last weekend and he will also visit Florida State. He talked last week with USC recruiter Grady Brown and continues to get positive vibes from him.

"They want me really bad," Causey said. "He's waiting on me. It's up to me to tell him I'm committing. He says I'm one of the top cornerbacks he wants in his class."

Causey said there's a 50-50 chance of him flipping his commitment with USC and Miami the top possibilities.

"I like everything," he said about USC. "The coaching staff, the academics. It's one of the places I have a good chance of going to."

Causey also talked with Clemson recruiter Brent Venables last week but said USC is pushing more for him than Clemson.

Causey said he'll make a final decision in August or September.
