On Saturday after the visit, the prospect from Dillon High School's Bryce King spoke with CUTigers.

"It was a good day. I had a lot of fun with the coaches. We got to see the school, how they run things around there," King said.

He added, "There were a couple of things different about this trip than the last time. We got to walk down the hill. They let us walk on the field. They played the big screen while we were out there. Overall, it was fun."

King spent plenty of time with offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell, who has taken over as the recruiter of record with the departure of Kevin Steele.

"[Caldwell] was just saying that he was excited for me and me being there. He wants me to get back up there as soon as possible. He said I was always welcome to come up there, whenever I wanted to."

The 6-foot-4, 288-pound junior offensive guard/center enjoys a good relationship with Caldwell.

"Coach Caldwell, he's just one of those coaches that you don't really get to hang around with a lot. There aren't a lot of coaches like coach Caldwell," King said. "He'll care about you and he'll get you if you do something wrong. I like coach Caldwell a lot."

Up next for King is a junior day trip to South Carolina next weekend. He'll head up to Virginia Tech next February.

Dillon teammates Kwinton Smith and D.J. Park, both of whom are committed to the Gamecocks, are in King's ear about joining them in Columbia.

"They're trying to get me to commit with them and go down there to South Carolina," King said. "I'm just going to keep my options open and just see how colleges are, make my mind up for myself. I just don't want to follow them. If it does come down to me going to Carolina, that's what I'll do."

He expects to make a decision by the middle of his senior season. There is no list of favorites.

Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, LSU, North Carolina and N.C. State have offered.
