South Carolina hosting seven visitors
The South Carolina Gamecocks will play host to seven official visitors this weekend. The list is headlined by five-star wide receiver Chris Culliver, the nation's No. 19 prospect overall. This article offers you a breakdown of where things stand with each prospect, including Culliver.
1. Chris Culliver, WR, 6-0, 190, 4.37
High School: Garner (N.C.) - Garner
Other Visits: Florida (Jan. 12)
Major Players: South Carolina and Florida
The Vitals: The final Rivals100 was released on Wednesday, and few made a bigger leap in the rankings than Culliver. The star receiver not only made the leap to five-star status, but he is also now the No. 19 overall prospect in the nation. His strong performance in Fort Lauderdale at the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl competing against the star-studded East team significantly helped his ranking. Culliver visited Florida last weekend and South Carolina gets its chance to add him to the fold this weekend.
The Scoop: Sources say he's a Gamecock lean coming into this trip, and a strong official visit to Columbia could be the last piece of the puzzle prior to Culliver committing to Steve Spurrier in the near future.
