Gamecocks check on Sunshine State TE
Tuesday marked Triglia's first time meeting the two coaches, and the 6'4", 234 pound USC target was impressed with Spurrier Jr.'s personality as well as his knowledge of the game.
"He was just a great guy. He knows a lot about football," Triglia said. "I was happy I got to meet him and hopefully he can be my coach next year."
Spurrier, Jr. also talked to the Sunshine State standout during the hour and a half long meeting about how he could be utilized in South Carolina's offense.
"They were just talking about how I could run, catch, and block. It's a good thing because some guys are just blocking or just catching [guys] and they thought I could do both."
Other schools have noticed Triglia's abilities, and he says he was looking "pretty strongly" at going to Illinois or Georgia Tech, but the coaching change at GT and impending change in offensive philosophy changed his mind. The two-star prospect claims offers from GT, Illinois, Southern Miss, Memphis, FAU, and Liberty.
While Rychleski is new to South Carolina, he had his own pitch for Triglia, involving his resume from his seven years at Maryland.
"He talked to me about Vernon Davis, then he just mentioned that he had put three guys in the league."
Triglia, who says he doesn't know any of the current football players at USC but does have friends attending South Carolina, will get a first hand look at the campus when he travels to Columbia for his official visit this weekend. The athletic tight end says he doesn't know a whole lot about USC right now, but he is looking forward to learning more on his trip.
"You know you usually get a feeling when you go on one of these visits. I'm looking for a good vibe and to have a feeling the coaches are all good guys. I want to have the opportunity to play fairly early. And I want to see my feelings towards the business school and the academics."
While Triglia says he does not know if a commitment to USC is in his near future, he would not rule out the possibility either.
"I'm not sure yet, there might be. I will just have to talk it over with my family when we get to that situation."
Triglia is ranked as the no. 60 tight end prospect in the nation according to Scout.com.
