Page takes in rivalry game, talks favorites
The 6-3, 285 pound Kenneth Page made the short trek to Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday night to watch the Gamecocks' heartbreaking 23-21 loss to the Clemson Tigers. While Page has been on USC's campus multiple times this season, he said the atmosphere Saturday was the best he has seen there. Page also understands the importance of the Carolina-Clemson game in the state of South Carolina.
"The atmosphere was great. Of course everyone was going to be hyped for the Carolina-Clemson game," Page said. "Living in South Carolina it's the biggest game of the year, college football-wise."
The athletic offensive lineman, who is being recruited by Coach David Reaves for the Gamecocks, will make a return trip to USC for his official visit this weekend.
Page maintains a top five "in no particular order" of Notre Dame, South Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Page says all the schools have their "ups and downsides," but each has a few things that particularly stand out to him:
South Carolina – "What sticks out, you know, they're right down the street from my house so it would be good to just stay and play in my hometown."
North Carolina – "Butch Davis just got over there. I think he's going to turn that whole program around."
Clemson – "They've had some good seasons. Great coaching staff."
Notre Dame – "The academics are just unbelievable."
Tennessee – "SEC football. Great school, [and it's] well rounded in all areas."
The Shrine Bowl selection says he has no timetable for a commitment at this time, but he does know what it will take for a school to win the Kenneth Page sweepstakes.
"The academics have to be there, and I have to get that at home feeling. I have to feel very comfortable with the area they're in."
