S.C. tight end torn between two

Tight end Justice Cunningham is still waiting for his first offer, but as one of the top prospects at his position in the state it's likely that he'll have a few to choose from before it's all said and done.

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound tight end from Pageland (S.C.) Central runs the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds and has heard from a variety of schools, among them Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina, NC State, Tennessee and Virginia.

Does he have a favorite?

"I'm torn between Clemson and South Carolina right now," he said. "If I had to say I guess I'd say South Carolina has a little (advantage), but it goes back and forth."

Cunningham plans on attending spring games at South Carolina and Clemson, and this weekend he will attend a junior day at NC State.

"I'm pretty sure I'm probably staying in state (for college)," he explained. "I'm probably going to give a verbal soon. I'd like to do it sometime over the summer."

That will depend on what the offer situation looks like, but it's clear Cunningham would prefer to end the recruiting process sooner rather than later.

He said he is being recruited as a defensive end by NC State and South Carolina, though he noted the Gamecocks would probably move him to tight end over time. Clemson is recruiting him as a tight end.
