Powell breaks down final two

After decommitting from Florida, Quinton Powell had a few official visits planned before Signing Day. The 2013 linebacker visited USC this past weekend and has now decided he's done taking visits – it will be either Florida or USC. Get the latest from Powell here.

Quinton Powell will no longer take visits to South Carolina and Oregon as he had previously planned. He now feels he has enough information to make a final decision, even though he doesn't know what that decision will be just yet.

"I've narrowed down my choices to just Florida and USC," Powell said.

"I still have to think about it, both of them are great schools so I don't know right now."

The Mainland (Daytona Beach, FL) linebacker took an official visit to Southern Cal last weekend and said he felt very comfortable with what he saw.

"It was good, the coaching staff was good, the new coach showed me the new package that they have that will fit me. Overall, it was a good experience, everybody treated me well," he said.

"I talked to most of the coaches, they were all basically staying the same thing, that they want me to be a part of the Trojan Nation, that they feel like I fit in with what they're trying to do in the next few years."

Powell visited with his mother, his father, and stepmother and said they all came away impressed as well.

"One thing they were keen on was the academics, we spent about an hour talking about that and they felt good about it," he said.

Powell's host was his close friend and former Mainland teammate, USC defensive end Leonard Williams. He said he had a great time with Williams and enjoyed getting to know more of the team.

"We bonded pretty well, I interacted with all of them pretty much, we had a great time," Powell said.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound linebacker said it will come down to the Trojans or the Gators on Signing Day. Even though Florida now has five linebacker commitments in the 2013 class, Powell said he still believes there is a place for him in Gainesville.

"They're still recruiting me, I talk to them very frequently," he said.

Powell will announce his final decision on Signing Day. Stay tuned to FOX Sports NEXT for all the latest.
