Hubert Davis, Jeff Lebo, and Brad Frederick were all in to see him on September 9, which was the first day staffs could get out on the road to watch live workouts. Georgetown, South Carolina, USC, Virginia have also made their way to Columbia. He also added an Alabama offer this past Monday to his other invites that go roughly twenty deep.
