FLORENCE, S.C. — On Tuesday night, SEC Country visited Wilson High School to see Xavier Thomas, the No. 2 ranked prospect in the class of 2018.
After competing at The Opening in Oregon, Thomas announced a top 4 that included South Carolina, Clemson, Ohio State and Florida State. However, the Gamecocks, Tigers, Buckeyes and Seminoles aren’t the only four still receiving consideration.
Thomas was supposed to visit Auburn last Saturday for the season opener against Clemson, but he cancelled those plans because of the heavy rainfall across the state of South Carolina.
This Saturday, Thomas is planning to visit Georgia for its home opener against Nicholls State. Seven days later, he’ll head to South Carolina for the East Carolina game.
The night before South Carolina kicks off the 2016 season at Williams-Brice, Will Muschamp and the Gamecocks coaching staff will head to Florence, to check out Wilson’s game against Dillon High School.
