Anthony Leaves Columbia Impressed
The 6-5, 255 pound Shaq Anthony, who already holds scholarship offers from Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson, Duke, and East Carolina, talked about his visit to check in on the Gamecocks over the weekend.
"It was a crazy game, I'm glad I got the chance to go to it," said Anthony. "The atmosphere was just nuts, and I saw how hard (the Gamecock) team played against the number one team in the nation."
Anthony especially enjoyed the time he got to spend with his recruiter and possible future position coach, Eric Wolford.
"I got to spend the majority of my time with Coach (Wolford)," Anthony claims. "I love that guy - he's one of my favorite coaches to be around. (Wolford) came to my game on Friday night to watch me play, and I can tell that he wants me to come (to USC) really bad."
Anthony also had the opportunity to spend time with several Gamecock prospects who joined him at Williams-Brice Stadium this past Saturday to take in the game.
"I talked with (Gamecock commitment) Corey Robinson for a little while about him coming to USC and stuff," began Anthony. "I also got a chance to talk to Marcus Lattimore, (Gamecock commitment) Kelcy Quarles, and (Gamecock commitment) Brandon Golson. They all seemed to be having a good time and we got along well."
The lead for Anthony's services remains an instate battle between South Carolina and Clemson. Although the talented offensive lineman has previous ties to the Tigers, he believes that he's still a long way from deciding on a college destination.
"Well, my dad (Vernie Anthony) played for Clemson, and some of my family went to school there too, so I grew up a Clemson fan," explained Anthony. "But once recruiting came at me, it really didn't matter any more because it's my choice and I'm going to do what's best for me. Right now Clemson and South Carolina are my top two, and they're both dead even."
Anthony will travel back to Columbia in two weeks to watch the South Carolina-Clemson game on Nov. 28th, and stated that South Carolina will indeed be one of the schools he takes an official visit to later in the process.
