The month of July has been a busy one for South Carolina and its 2018 recruiting efforts, but it may not be as hectic as originally forecasted.
“When I got more serious about it and looking at where I really wanted to go I just couldn’t decide,” Horn told Phil Kornblut. “Then Tennessee picked up a lot … after I thought about it, it’s a good situation there also. That’s really what made me push it back.”
Three-star athlete Bryce Thompson, a former Virginia Tech commitment from Dutch Fork High School (Irmo, S.C.), recently backed off his decision to announce a new commitment on July 30.
But Thompson said during an interview with Kornblut this week that he’s already made up his mind between North Carolina State, South Carolina and Virginia Tech.
The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect could play defensive back or wide receiver at the next level.
“Myself, I’d probably want to play wide receiver more, but anything to get on the field the quickest, it doesn’t matter to me,” Thompson said. “[Muschamp is] just throwing it out there that it’s a dream to play for your home state, that you have everybody that has watched you grow up and watched you play football.
“Honestly, it is a dream to play for your home state. I wouldn’t mind that. And he’s saying he has the best defensive back coach [Travaris Robinson] in college. I believe that also because he has the credentials.”
Both Horn and Thompson camped with the Gamecocks last month.
