South Carolina Offers NC Back

It was only a matter of time before Daryl Vereen began to wreak the benefits of the amazing speed he displayed at both the Shrine Bowl and All-American Combines.

"I got an offer in the mail Saturday from South Carolina before I left for Virginia," said Vereen. "I was excited about that, because for a little minute that's where I wanted to go."

With the USC offer, South Carolina dethrones their northern neighbors, the Tar Heels, as Vereen's leader.

"I still like [North] Carolina, but they haven't offered," said Vereen. "I guess I got to go with a school that has offered. South Carolina is now my leader, I guess."

After learning about his newest offer, Vereen headed to Charlottesville for Virginia's spring game.

"It was a really good trip," said Vereen. "They seem like they are interested, a little bit. I'm going to the Nike Camp in Georgia this weekend and they said they would be up there to watch me. I think they want to see me in action."

As far as he knows, Vereen is done with unofficial visits this spring, but plans to camp at Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Clemson, and maybe Florida this summer.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete from Huntersville (N.C.) North Mecklenburg ran 40-yard dash times of 4.35 and 4.38 seconds at the Shrine Bowl, and All-American Combines, respectively. Vereen, who also sports a Duke offer, is being looked at to play tailback and safety.
