I know it was reported on 11w that he got an offer a week or two ago, but for those who haven't seen here is a link for his junior year highlights:
I really hope the staff is able to reel this one in the way they did Michael Hill last year. I live down in SC and a number of my friends are Gamecock fans (his presumed leader and prohibitive favorite per 247 up until recently, USCe was downgraded to warm from warmer and others including OSU moved to warm) and they do not like that he was offered and is visiting Columbus in June. They all thought that he would be able to sneak under the radar and commit to USC before he really blew up, if ever as the knock on him is that he is undersized height wise. Right now he is low 4 star per the composite, however, he plays MUCH better than that on film, which is border line ridiculous. Last year he had 154 Tackles as a DT (although it looks like he lined up all over including LB), and 41 tackles for loss. 247 gave him all 8s and 9s, except for size where they gave him a 5, in his individual rankings which puts him up there with some of the other top DL recruits skills wise. IMO he is an explosive athlete with unreal closing speed for his size, to steal a draft buzz phrase "translates speed to power" very well, well enough to more than make up for his height. If not clear already I really hope we steal him from USCe. What do you guys think?
