South Carolina target Dakereon Joyner, the No. 10-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2018, will return to Columbia this weekend for another unofficial visit.

During an interview with Phil Kornblut, Joyner filled in some of the details about his first trip to Blacksburg.
“I really enjoyed it, the experience and I finally got a chance to come up here,” Joyner said. “I enjoyed the facilities and I love the city itself. Blacksburg is a nice town.”
He added, “It’s my kind of offense. I’m the kind of guy that throws the ball well, run the RPO and spread the ball across the field. Coach (Justin) Fuente has a great quarterback history. Virginia Tech itself has great quarterback history with Tyrod Taylor and Michael Vick, those six-foot kind of guys.”
USC this weekend ?
