Dickerson has "great" visit to USC
Josh Dickerson, who measures in at a stout 6'2", 220 pounds, thoroughly enjoyed his official visit to South Carolina and came away very impressed with what the Gamecocks have to offer.
"It went good. It was real nice," Dickerson said of his visit to USC. "They had real nice facilities. I talked to just about the whole coaching staff. We talked business. We talked about their depth chart and how much they need me and Tony (Straughter). They told me they want to bring me in for immediate playing time at the MIKE and WILL linebacker positions."
Dickerson attended USC's game against Wofford on Saturday night, and the Gamecock fans' enthusiasm and support made a big impression on him.
"I knew they were going to beat Wofford, but the fans really stood out. The fans are just avid there."
The GMC standout enjoyed talking with South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier during his exit interview on Sunday afternoon, and he said that he strongly considered committing to the Gamecocks during that meeting.
"I really liked talking with coach Spurrier. He's not like most head coaches. I can see that he's a cool coach you can go talk to anytime," he said. "I decided to wait (to commit). They almost had me though. I thought about it, but I think the smart decision is to go ahead and take at least one more visit to make sure that's where I want to go. It's either going to be to Tennessee or West Virginia, or I might just go ahead and take both of them."
While Dickerson did not pull the trigger and commit to South Carolina during his time in Columbia, the Gamecocks have emerged as the clear team to beat in the race for his services.
"South Carolina is my favorite. I loved the coaches, and I like the city of Columbia too. It was a great visit."
Dickerson, who runs a 4.5 second forty yard dash, said he plans to come to a final decision shortly after he takes his other visits.
