Causey Breaks Down Timeline

A long list of programs are after 2015 cornerback Rashard Causey and he's still expecting a few more offers. The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas standout breaks down where he stands in his recruitment process right here...

Rashard Causey has recently named some favorites including South Carolina, Miami, and UCLA. He is definitely high on those three programs, but he isn't ruling out others. The 2015 corner plans to have a top 15 before spring ends, and go from there.

"Probably before summer I'll narrow it down to ten, then from there I'm going to take five visits during the summer and five visits during the season," he said.

One of the schools looking good for the 6-foot, 193-pound athlete is South Carolina. He's visited there before and he plans to visit again this spring.

"Hopefully it's the same as last time I was there. Last time, I felt like I was at home, it was great when I went up there," he said.

Causey talks to secondary coach Grady Brown "every day" and the two have built quite a bond, one that reminds Causey of his relationship with his former high school football coach, Roger Harriott.

"He's cool, he reminds me of Coach Harriott in some ways and I feel like he could be another father figure in my life like Coach Harriott was and help guide me through college. He's cool and he knows what he's doing," said Causey.

Another plus for the Gamecocks is Causey's close friendship with his former teammate, South Carolina freshman linebacker Skai Moore. The two talk often and Moore has raved about South Carolina to Causey.

"He's like my brother," Causey said.

"He feels like South Carolina's home, he said it's probably the best decision that he made in his life."

Besides South Carolina, UCLA, and Miami, Causey says he's liking Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Auburn. He's expecting Auburn to offer soon and that would be a program he'd really look into. This summer, he plans to check out UCLA and USC among others. He expects to make a final decision sometime during his senior season.

"At the end of the day, it's probably location, how well I fit in the program and how good the education is. Education is everything," he said.
