This much is becoming clear: South Carolina is recruiting the metro area for secondary help.
Not only did Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier make an offer to South Paulding cornerback Ryan Ayers, but he’s also looked to the other side of the metro area and made an offer to Southwest DeKalb’s Jonathan Mincy.
“They came through with an offer last week and I was real excited about that,” Mincy told The State. “I don’t know much about them, so I want to get up there and find out more. I’m looking forward to seeing it.”
He plans to visit South Carolina during the summer, along with Tennessee, Florida and Ohio State.
Georgia and Georgia Tech also are interested in keeping Mincy close to home.
The Gamecocks have also offered Georgia Military College safety Jakar Hamilton, a junior college All-American.
“A visit to South Carolina is a real possibility,” Hamilton told GamecockCentral.com. “Georgia and Alabama are also going to be getting a visit.”
Georgia and Alabama are ahead of the Gamecocks, Hamilton said.
