  1. New Jersey RB watches Gamecocks Saturday By SPORTSTALK/ October 18, 2021 3 star RB Kanye Udoh (6-0 200) of Richland, NJ made his second trip to the Palmetto State for an unofficial visit this past weekend. In September he was at Clemson. Saturday he was at USC. He’s not hearing much from the Tigers, but USC running backs coach Montario Hardesty is interested, and that resulted in the invitation to come in for the game. “Coach Hardesty looked at my mid-season film and he said he liked it a lot,” Udoh said. “He started recruiting me and talking to my parents. He was telling me some things that they do, and he wanted me to get there for a game, meet me in person and let me see the school.” Udoh did meet with Hardesty, and he did get a look at things around the football operation. “I really liked it a lot,” Udoh said. “The vibe was great. The fans were amazing. And I got the chance to go around the football facilities.” The question now for Udoh as it pertains to the Gamecocks, will Hardesty get back to him with an offer? “He said that the rest of the coaching staff will look at my film before he offers me,” Udoh said. “He said he likes me a lot and wants me to come back for an official. I feel good towards them. Definitely good people over there.” Udoh, who just went over 1000 rushing yards on the season, said of the schools he’s been offered by Maryland, Army and Delaware are in touch the most. He also has been offered by Boston College, Syracuse, Connecticut, Buffalo, West Virginia, Nebraska, Rutgers, Massachusetts and Temple. Clemson and USC have been his only game visits this season, but he plans to visit Pittsburgh this Saturday for the Clemson game. Udoh said he’d like to make a decision soon, possibly within a month.

  6. Stokes feeling locked in with Wolverines SPORTSTALK/ October 12, 2021 Hammond RB CJ Stokes is one of the state’s top prospects, and he’s working hard to help his team to another state championship. At the same time, he’s put his recruiting on the back burner. And Stokes can afford to do since he committed to Michigan in mid-June. “Right now, I’m really more focused on finishing out the season with a state championship,” Stokes said. “I haven’t really thought about it, but I’m pretty locked in right now as far as school goes. I haven’t really thought about it to change my mind since football season. I haven’t really put much thought into it.” USC is trying to give Stokes something to think about. He made an unofficial visit there in early June. He also accepted the offer from the Gamecocks to visit for the Eastern Illinois game. They also wanted him to visit for the Kentucky game, but he couldn’t make it. “Nothing is locked in right now, but I very well could be going back for a game,” Stokes said. “I might go back in the future if they want to have me over.” They probably will invite him again, because running backs coach Montario Hardesty seems to like him a lot. “He’s hits me up to check on me a lot,” Stokes said. “He came to my game the week they played the Eastern Illinois team, and he’s been hitting me up since then. He’s just talking to me about staying home and stuff like that. He’s trying to get me to think about it even though I’m committed. He’s not pressuring me or anything, just talking to me about it seeing where I’m at.” Stokes appears to be a running back prospect Hardesty is focusing on right now. “He said I’m a guy they are looking at on their board right now as one of the guys,” Stokes said. “Running backs looked good in the game I was at. Pretty much all of them had a good game. That was good to see.” Michigan, however, remains foremost on Stokes’ mind when it comes to his recruiting. The Wolverines have not let up a bit on their recruiting of him since landing the commitment. “I hear from them just about every day, from (Jim) Harbaugh and coach (Mike) Hart, the running backs coach,” Stokes said. “They hit me up pretty much every day. I’m still in communication with them over the phone. I’m going back up to Michigan for the Ohio State game. As soon as the season is over, I guess I’ll sit back and think about it more, but right now I’m pretty locked in just because I haven’t really sat down and given it a look yet. Michigan is still the place I’m going to.”

It was a case where a prospect really wanted to stay home and play for the in-state school. But the Gamecocks are not finished adding to their defensive front. They have positioned themselves well with Fort Dorchester 3 star DT Demetrius Watson (6-2 285), and it’s just a matter of time before he makes a commitment to the Gamecocks. “They are really, really big, like number one on my list right now,” Watson said. “I don’t see anybody coming in front of that right now.” Watson said he does not have a definite commitment date in mind, and Shane Beamer and defensive line coach Jimmy Lindsey are not rushing him. He’s not had a chance to get in for a game this season because of Covid issues in the family, but he might be in for the Vanderbilt game and others in November. “Everything is great,” Watson said. “Most of the time I’m talking to coach Beamer and coach Lindsey, and it isn’t about football, it’s about everyday life stuff. I’m getting to know them as better people. I get a lot of motivational videos from coach Beamer and some of the after the game conferences.” The Gamecocks are 3-2 going into Saturday’s game at Tennessee. Watson has been watching from home, and he’s upbeat about the direction of the program under Beamer. “I believe the whole team overall is starting to find into place like how it’s supposed to be,” Watson said. “Right now, everybody is buying into the process from what I’m seeing. I’m seeing the progression over the weeks, and it seems like everything is falling in line how it is supposed to be.” Watson said he can see himself playing for Beamer. In fact, he often visualizes what it would be like for him in a Gamecocks uniform inside Williams-Brice Stadium. “I see it being great,” Watson said. “It’s hard to explain, but sometimes I sit, and I daydream about it, what I would look like in the uniform and on the field with all the fans.” Watson also has offers from Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Arizona State, Virginia Tech and Georgia State. But he said the schools he’s been hearing from besides The Gamecocks' are Coastal Carolina, Navy and Kansas.

Georgia and Clemson are the two others under consideration. Here’s what Delp had to say regarding the game visit and the message to him from Gamecock coach Shane Beamer: “It was awesome. The fans were insane. People stopped me left and right. They had my name painted on some kids in the student section, so it was crazy. I definitely felt the love. I had a good time, it was a lot of fun.” “They targeted them (tight ends) a lot. I loved what they did with them and how they moved them around.” “They (coaches) were telling me the same thing they’ve been telling me from the beginning. I can help them change that program and be that guy known for that team, make a name for myself. Everybody wants to be that guy on the team I think it’s a good opportunity to have that chance.” Delp said a big part of his decision will be based on where he would most want to be if he were not playing football. He said he will notify the schools of his decision the day before his announcement.
